Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail

If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.

(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)

 
 

CopyDoubler Bug

Send Article to a Friend

An unfortunate bug has reared its ugly head in CopyDoubler 2.0, the utility from Fifth Generation Systems that significantly speeds copying. It seems that if you drag a blank floppy disk onto another floppy disk while CopyDoubler is installed, files on your hard disk can be deleted. Needless to say, this is a major problem, and Fifth Generation has released a patcher that brings CopyDoubler to version 2.0.1 and fixes the bug. If you use CopyDoubler or CopyDoubler Lite, make sure to download the updater. It's available on America Online (keyword: Salient), CompuServe (GO FIFTH, library #14), and on <sumex-aim.stanford.edu> as:

info-mac/cmp/copy-doubler-20-201-updt.hqx

A patcher for CopyDoubler Lite exists in the same places with a slightly different name. Obscure bugs happen, and it's a shame that this one had to happen to a program as good as CopyDoubler, but I'm pleased to see an updater available on the nets.
