Adding Links in Snow Leopard's Mail

Apple Mail in Snow Leopard now has a Command-key shortcut for adding a link to an email.

If you use plain-text email, this will not be helpful at all, but if you send styled email, it's a nice shortcut for adding URLs to your email messages. Simply select the word(s) you want to make into a link, press Command-K, and enter the URL to build into the link.

Going to Macworld Expo?

Send Article to a Friend

Going to Macworld Expo? Don't forget to bring along the latest Newtonware offering by Bill Kearney <wkearney@access.digex.net>, a $5 shareware guide to all the exhibitors on the two show floors. You can view by exhibitor name or booth number, there are checkboxes to record which you've visited, and each entry has a notes field where you can jot your own comments. If you pay for the guide, you will receive an export utility to convert your exhibitor list into Names entries. Look via FTP on <newton.uiowa.edu>. [MHA]
