Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility

Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.

 
 

OmniOutliner 4.0.5

Send Article to a Friend

The Omni Group has released OmniOutliner 4.0.5, a small maintenance release that nonetheless eases some frustration with the previous version by fixing its most frequently reported crash (which would occur randomly with any simple action). The outline and information organization app also fixes its Outline view so that rows not in the focused view are visible when switching sections, ensures that hyperlinks aren’t lost after making an edit to a row, and removes the selected state in the sidebar when you change focus. For our review, see “OmniOutliner 4 Refines the Outlining Process” (31 January 2014) ($49.99 new, free update, 45 MB, release notes, 10.9+)
