Stylin' a Word Comment Balloon

If you work with Word's Comment feature, you may find that the comment-balloon text is too small to work with, or you may just want some variety. To modify the style, choose Format > Style. From the List pop-up menu, choose All Styles. Select Balloon Text from the Style list. Modify the style as you like, and then click Apply. I like Arial Narrow, 12 point.

 
 

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.
