Objective Development has issued LaunchBar 6.0.1, the first maintenance release following its recent major upgrade to version 6.0 (see “LaunchBar 6 Adds Themes, Instant Feedback, and More,” 11 June 2014). The keyboard-based launcher and shortcut utility adds several new text transformation actions (including case conversions, line sorting, and removal of multiple spaces), new icons for many built-in actions, a shortcut to sort folder contents by Date Added, and an indexing option that enables you to index only bookmarks from Safari’s Favorites Bar. The release also improves live results when searching plain text files, extends Clipboard History capacity, improves theme switching, fixes some bugs, and brings back missing localizations. ($29 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 10 MB, release notes, 10.9+)
Stylin' a Word Comment Balloon
If you work with Word's Comment feature, you may find that the comment-balloon text is too small to work with, or you may just want some variety. To modify the style, choose Format > Style. From the List pop-up menu, choose All Styles. Select Balloon Text from the Style list. Modify the style as you like, and then click Apply. I like Arial Narrow, 12 point.
