View Extra Audio Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, Option-clicking the Volume icon in the menu bar displays a list of sound input and output devices. Choose one to switch to it; it's much easier than using the Sound preference pane. Also, hold Shift and click the icon to set the system volume, which is separate from the general output volume.

Typinator 6.1

Send Article to a Friend

Following its jump to version 6.0 (see “Typinator 6.0,” 17 June 2014), Ergonis has released Typinator 6.1 with a number of enhancements added to the text expansion tool. The update brings new markers that can temporarily pause Typinator for suppressing the next replacement, as well as for suppressing the current replacement (used for defining exceptions of other rules). It also adds a new set for defining exceptions for the auto-capitalize sentences rule, a function for sorting text lines (such as for sorting lines found in the clipboard), and an option to insert a delay in the middle of an expansion. In addition, Typinator 6.1 fixes an issue where some regular expressions matched internally used mark characters, a memory leak that occurred when set options were edited multiple times, and a problem that caused auto-capitalization of sentences to fail in certain cases.
