Two Shortcuts for App Exposé

If you want to see all the windows for a particular app via App Exposé, there are two hidden shortcuts. For either, start by pressing Command-Tab to bring up the app switcher. Then, while still holding down the Command key, press either the 1 key or the up arrow. That puts you into App Expose mode, with all of an app's windows showing, and recent documents in a row across the bottom of the screen. Let up on the Command key, and then you can press Tab to cycle through all the running apps.

FullWrite Upgrade

Send Article to a Friend

FullWrite Upgrade -- The FullWrite list hasn't had much traffic lately, but news about the upcoming version came through the list a few days ago. FullWrite 2.0 sounds promising, with features such as tables, two-page editing, indexing, table of contents, text wrap around graphics, watermarks, drag & drop, and a glossary that stores chunks of pre-typed text. The glossary in FullWrite can also function much like AutoCorrect, a heavily marketed Word for Windows 6.0 feature that may show up in Macintosh Word 6.0. For example, FullWrite can automatically correct common misspellings, such as "recieve." When FullWrite 1.0 shipped, one of its main problems was that it wanted more RAM than most people had. What with lowered memory costs and RAM Doubler, FullWrite 2.0's 2 MB RAM requirement should not be a major problem. (According to the list, a recent MacWEEK article incorrectly reported a 700K requirement.) Although Akimbo Systems has a Power Mac native version in the works, for now FullWrite 2.0 runs on 68K Macs or in emulation mode on Power Macs. Akimbo plans to ship FullWrite in early August and demo the program at Boston Macworld. [TJE]
