Open URLs Quickly from BBEdit

If you're working on a bit of text (HTML or otherwise) in BBEdit, and you see a URL that you'd like to open, the fastest way is to Command-click it. Most BBEdit users probably already know this tip, but if you don't, it's a huge time-saver. (The same trick works in BBEdit's free little brother, TextWrangler.)

 
 

OmniOutliner 4.0.3

Send Article to a Friend

The Omni Group has released OmniOutliner 4.0.3, with fixes for multiple crashes related to using the style theming interface and for notes that disappeared at the start of editing when displayed in-pane. The flexible outline and information organization app also now ensures that edits made to embedded attachments are always saved and that linked attachments appear immediately (instead of having to wait until reopening a file). And while the update also improves typing in long documents, Omni promises more optimizations and asks for examples of files that continue to perform badly to be sent to omnioutliner@omnigroup.com. OmniOutliner is available in a Standard edition for $49.99 and a Pro edition for $99.99 (the latter with additional user interface elements and AppleScript support), and both the Standard and Pro editions are available in the Mac App Store. For more information, see “OmniOutliner 4 Refines the Outlining Process” (31 January 2014). ($49.99 new, free update, 43.2 MB, release notes)
