Open Links from Apple Mail in the Background

If an email message in Mail includes a Web link which you'd prefer to check out after you've read all your mail, and you don't want to hunt for the link later, Command-click the link in the message to open a browser window in the background. Mail remains the foreground application, and the browser window can wait till you're ready.

ScreenFlow 4.5.2

Send Article to a Friend

Telestream has released ScreenFlow 4.5.2, which squashes a bug introduced in the previous maintenance release (see “ScreenFlow 4.5.1,” 28 May 2014) that prevented default export filenames from matching document names. The screencast recording app fixes a hang that occurred when opening documents with a high zoom factor, improves performance when opening documents with zoomed up timelines and many clips with audio waveforms, and fixes a memory leak related to modifying the speed of a clip with an audio waveform. For a complete rundown of the new features, read the PDF release notes from Telestream’s support page. Note that as of this writing, the Mac App Store version of ScreenFlow remains at version 4.5. ($99 new from the Telestream Web site or $99.99 from the Mac App Store, 39.1 MB, 10.7+)
