Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling

In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen). If you like this behavior, you can make it the default in the Appearance preference pane. For "Click in the scroll bar to:" select "Jump to here."

 
 

Marked 2.2 (Build 823)

Send Article to a Friend

Brett Terpstra has released Marked 2.2 (Build 822), which adds a couple of new features to the Markdown previewer. According to this blog post, the latest build improves how Marked handles opening external files that aren’t recognized (suggesting to open in a default app instead of just providing an error message), asks whether you want to open links in the current window or a new one, and improves how it handles YAML (the “human friendly data serialization standard for all programming languages”). Marked also now features MathJax configuration updates, syntax highlighting improvements, and a fix for MultiMarkdown metadata like “Base Header Level” and “Quotes Language” not being recognized. A quick update to Build 823 fixes a minor bug. ($11.99 new, free update, 16.3 MB, release notes)
