ChronoSync Secret Menubar Shortcut

For a quick way to run a ChronoSync document without opening it, use the ChronoSync menu in the menubar. Select "Show ChronoSync menu in menubar" in ChronoSync's General Preferences window to activate the menu bar menu. Once activated, you'll see the ChronoSync circling arrows icon in the menu bar, at the top right of your screen.

You can open any scheduled ChronoSync document directly from the menu bar. If you hold down the Option key while selecting a ChronoSync document, the synchronization will run immediately without the ChronoSync document opening.

Apple Remote Desktop 3.7.2 -- Apple has released Apple Remote Desktop 3.7.2, a recommended update for all users. The release fixes an issue with the remote management software that caused incorrect IP addresses to be displayed in the Scanner, improves performance on networks with clients whose IP addresses change frequently, changes view order of screens in multi-observe mode, improves reliability of screen sharing sessions, enables automatic copy and paste between local and remote computers, and fixes a bug that caused clients to be incorrectly reported as Offline or Sleeping. ($79.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 19.6 MB)

GarageBand 10.0.2 -- With the release of GarageBand 10.0.2 for the Mac, Apple has finally brought back the capability to export in MP3 format, a feature missing since last October’s Mavericks-only update (see “New Free iLife and iWork Apps Share across Devices and Platforms,” 22 October 2013). It was a bedeviling change that exasperated a great many users (who voiced their frustrations on Apple’s Support Communities; here’s one discussion thread example), and caused this writer to continue using the previous version of GarageBand (6.0.5). The update also offers multiple enhancements to Accessibility; adds three new Drummers and drum kits from the rock, songwriter, and R&B genres; and improves overall stability. (Free from the Mac App Store, 986 MB)
