Compare More Easily in Apple Mail

In Apple Mail, if you need to work back and forth between two different views of Mail's mailbox contents, you can do so quite easily. For example, you might want to look at a mailbox holding all filtered-in sales orders from the past week while also looking at a smart mailbox showing unanswered customer questions.

To avoid constantly clicking between mailbox views and losing your context each time, choose File > New Viewer window to get a second window and then arrange each window as desired.

Spinning for a Win

Send Article to a Friend

Spinning for a Win -- Optima Systems last week released PageSpinner 2.0, a text-oriented HTML editor. PageSpinner has retained its user-friendly approach (see my review of version 1.1b1 in TidBITS-327), making it an excellent choice for HTML newbies, but it has also added an impressive set of features that most any Web author will welcome, including support for cascading style sheets, frames, Java applets, and includes, which simplify updating common elements on a group of pages. The new version is scriptable and comes with samples that illustrate how to link PageSpinner to FileMaker Pro, HyperCard, and 4D Server.

PageSpinner 2.0 minimally requires Mac OS version 7.0.1 or later, 2 to 4 MB application RAM, 6 MB disk space, a 68020-based Macintosh, and a grayscale monitor. PageSpinner 2.0 is a free upgrade to registered owners of earlier versions; new users should plan to pay the $25 shareware fee. [TJE]
