Copy Before Submitting Web Forms

Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.

Hide and Seek with SiteMill 2.0

Send Article to a Friend

Hide and Seek with SiteMill 2.0 -- Although Adobe SiteMill 1.0 was among the first commercial Web site management tools for the Macintosh, with SiteMill 2.0 seemingly way overdue, many wondered if it would ever ship. Even after Adobe informed me they had shipped SiteMill 2.0, they did not quickly update their Web site to reflect this information, and press kits they've sent all concern the Windows version.

SiteMill is no longer a separate product; instead, it comes in a bundle with PageMill 2.0 and Photoshop LE, Adobe's "light" version of Photoshop. This PageMill bundle lists for $149 and replaces the previous PageMill package. Those having a registration number for SiteMill 1.0 or PageMill 2.0 can download a free copy of SiteMill 2.0, sized at approximately 2 MB. As of this writing, a number Adobe's Web pages lead to the beta release, but this page linked to the real goods when I tried it. Adobe Systems -- 800/411-8657 -- 408/536-6000 [TJE]
