Matthew Cravit <firstname.lastname@example.org> writes "A colleague of mine at work just purchased a Centris 660AV and AudioVision monitor. After sorting out the adapter mix-up, he tells me that the adapter has one glaring weakness. If you plug something in to the Video In port on the monitor, the adapter completely ignores that signal. In other words, the Video In jack on the AudioVision monitor is useless." [Noah Price of Apple was kind enough to confirm this, but he noted that the video input signal is present on the large cable, so a third party could make an adapter that brings it through to the video input port on the AudioVision monitor. -Adam]
Mysteriously Moving Margins in Word
In Microsoft Word 2008 (and older versions), if you put your cursor in a paragraph and then move a tab or indent marker in the ruler, the change applies to just that paragraph. If your markers are closely spaced, you may have trouble grabbing the right one, and inadvertently work with tabs when you want to work with indents, or vice-versa. The solution is to hover your mouse over the marker until a yellow tooltip confirms which element you're about to drag.
I recently came to appreciate the importance of waiting for those tooltips: a document mysteriously reset its margins several times while I was under deadline pressure, causing a variety of problems. After several hours of puzzlement, I had my "doh!" moment: I had been dragging a margin marker when I thought I was dragging an indent marker.
When it comes to moving markers in the Word ruler, the moral of the story is always to hover, read, and only then drag.
