Access OpenType Font Features

OpenType fonts (.otf) often have special features, such as swashes and alternate characters, that are accessible in any app that uses the OS X font panel, including Pages and TextEdit. To access them, type and select your text, press Command-T to open the font panel, and then choose Typography from the Actions pop-up menu. That shows the Typography panel, where you can toggle available options for the font and characters you've selected.

Autodesk has announced an upgrade program for users of ClarisCAD, which has slipped ever further from Claris's attention. From 01-Nov-93 to 15-Jan-94, users of ClarisCAD can upgrade to AutoCAD Release 12 for the Macintosh for $995 (normally $2,500). To qualify for the upgrade, current ClarisCAD users must contact a local Autodesk Authorized Reseller (call the number below for a reference) and provide a proof of purchase or a serialized disk for each copy of ClarisCAD to be traded in and a signed Upgrade Pledge, which reads as follows (and I quote): "I would like to purchase an upgrade to AutoCAD Release 12 for the Macintosh as a replacement for my existing ClarisCAD. I pledge to discontinue use of ClarisCAD and within 90 days to destroy all copies of that computer-aided-design software." I recommend repeating the pledge in the presence of your Autodesk Authorized Reseller while standing on one foot with your head held high and your right hand on your heart. The signature? For $995, my bet is on blood.
