Two Shortcuts for App Exposé

If you want to see all the windows for a particular app via App Exposé, there are two hidden shortcuts. For either, start by pressing Command-Tab to bring up the app switcher. Then, while still holding down the Command key, press either the 1 key or the up arrow. That puts you into App Expose mode, with all of an app's windows showing, and recent documents in a row across the bottom of the screen. Let up on the Command key, and then you can press Tab to cycle through all the running apps.

Tinderbox 6.0

Send Article to a Friend

Eastgate Systems has released Tinderbox 6.0, a major update to the personal content assistant that helps you store and organize your notes, plans, and ideas (first reviewed in TidBITS in 2002 — see “Light Your Fire with Tinderbox,” 14 October 2002). The rewritten and re-imagined Tinderbox adds an Attribute Browser with multiple ways of examining a document (any section of it, or in entirety), tabbed windows that enable you to switch amongst different views, new mapping shapes and badges, and a flexible Get Info popover. Tinderbox also adds support for addresses and ISBNs to anticipate your needs when working with places and books, and assigns agents their own processor to quicken updates. You can upgrade to Tinderbox 6.0 for free if you purchased or upgraded Tinderbox in the past year (on or after 29 May, 2013). Any license purchased before that date can upgrade to Tinderbox 6.0 for $98. ($249 new, free update, 37.5 MB, 10.8+)
