Aladdin Revs Up -- Aladdin Systems has acquired publishing rights to 6prime's Rev, the $99.95 easy-to-use revision control software I reviewed back in TidBITS-362. Rev saves intermediate versions of frequently saved documents, making it possible to return to one of those intermediate versions in case of otherwise irrevocable mistakes. Even though Nisus Writer provides unlimited undos that work through saves, I still use Rev with documents I work on frequently, and on several occasions Rev has saved me from recreating work. I'm pleased to see Aladdin picking up Rev so it can benefit from the additional support. [ACE]
Go Back and Forth Fast in Preview
If you're reading a PDF in Apple's Preview software, and you follow a bookmark or an internal link to move around within the PDF, you can quickly return to where you were by pressing the keyboard shortcut Command-[ (that's Command-Left Bracket). Or, you can choose Go > Back.
The command works iteratively, so you can go back to just the previously viewed page or if you issue the command again, to the page before that, and so on. There's also an equivalent Go > Forward (Command-]).
