Made for each other -- Connectix announced during the Macworld Expo in Boston that RAM Doubler 1.5 (updated to support Power Macintosh and to improve performance on all Macs) will be included in every new copy of Microsoft Office from 01-Sep-94 through 31-Mar-95. RAM Doubler 1.5 began shipping at Macworld. Running more than one of Microsoft Office's component products at once (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint are the primary applications) takes quite a bit of memory, so all but the most memory-endowed users will appreciate the breathing room RAM Doubler affords.

Find Text Leading from Acrobat PDF
Ever have to recreate a document from an Acrobat PDF? You can find out most everything about the text by using the Object Inspector, except the leading. Well, here's a cheesy way to figure it out. Open the PDF in Illustrator (you just need one page). Release any and all clipping masks. Draw a guide at the baseline of the first line of text, and one on the line below. Now, Option-drag the first line to make a copy, and position it exactly next to the original first line at baseline. Then put a return anywhere in the copied line. Now adjust leading of the copied lines, so that the second line of copy rests on the baseline of the second line of the original. Now you know your leading.
Or you could buy expensive software to find the leading. Your choice.
