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.

The Macintosh LC 520

Send Article to a Friend

The Macintosh LC 520 is sold in Canada, or so <DELANEYG@wl.aecl.ca> writes to tell us. Unlike in the U.S., where Apple currently sells the LC 520 only to the education market, normal people can buy the LC 520 in Canada. The Canadian versions of the LC 520 sport 8 MB of RAM, an 80 MB or 160 MB hard disk, and an internal CD300i. All that, and apparently at a price lower than a comparably equipped LC III.
