C-Command Software has released SpamSieve 2.9.14 with support for Apple Mail when running the recently released OS X 10.9.3 Mavericks (for more on the update, see “10.9.3 Restores Local Contact/Calendar Sync, Improves 4K Support,” 15 May 2014). C-Command notes that if you’ve already updated to 10.9.3 Mavericks you should make sure to choose Install Apple Mail Plug-In from the SpamSieve menu (otherwise Mail will move good messages to the spam mailbox without consultation with SpamSieve). The release also does away with the file size limit associated with the Import Addresses command, checks permissions on more of Apple Mail’s folders, no longer prompts to access the system contacts database if Use Mac OS X Address Book is unchecked, and improves the training commands in Apple Mail’s localized mailbox names. ($30 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 14.4 MB, release notes, 10.5+)
Mysteriously Moving Margins in Word
In Microsoft Word 2008 (and older versions), if you put your cursor in a paragraph and then move a tab or indent marker in the ruler, the change applies to just that paragraph. If your markers are closely spaced, you may have trouble grabbing the right one, and inadvertently work with tabs when you want to work with indents, or vice-versa. The solution is to hover your mouse over the marker until a yellow tooltip confirms which element you're about to drag.
I recently came to appreciate the importance of waiting for those tooltips: a document mysteriously reset its margins several times while I was under deadline pressure, causing a variety of problems. After several hours of puzzlement, I had my "doh!" moment: I had been dragging a margin marker when I thought I was dragging an indent marker.
When it comes to moving markers in the Word ruler, the moral of the story is always to hover, read, and only then drag.
