Track Changes Dates Reset on Save As in Word 2008

If you regularly use the Save As feature to create new drafts while working in Word 2008, you might notice that with Track Changes enabled, previously time-stamped comments and edits have their times reset to the Save As date and time. Work around this by sticking with your original file, but using Save As (or just File > Duplicate in the Finder) to make backup copies.

 
 

PowerPC developer info

Send Article to a Friend
Technical Support Coordinator, BAKA Computers

Everyone's talking about PowerPC, the new processor architecture Apple and IBM have been developing, that promises to blow away all the microprocessors currently on the market. If you'd like to sound knowledgeable about PowerPC at that big cocktail party this weekend, check out the new "Macintosh on PowerPC" folder that Apple Developer Services has provided on AppleLink. This folder houses general information for third-party developers interested in preparing for the next Macintosh platform.

The information includes options for transitioning to PowerPC, what development tools will be available, what can be done to prepare for PowerPC, and which developers have already hopped onto the bandwagon. The folder can be found under the AppleLink path Developer Support -> Developer Services -> Macintosh on PowerPC.

AppleLink, which previously was available somewhat exclusive to Apple employees, dealers, and third-party developers, is now available to anyone willing to fill out the form and spend the money. Although AppleLink costs a good deal more than other online services, it often has more information, more timely news, and better access to Apple resources and other developers. You can find subscription applications on (you guessed it) AppleLink, under the AppleLink Help Desk icon, so you can ask your local dealer or an existing developer to download one for you.
