Re-Order the Fetch Shortcuts Menus

Do you use a shortcuts menu frequently in Fetch? Whether you use the Shortcuts menu bar menu or the "heart" shortcuts pop-up menu in the New Connection dialog, you can change the order of the shortcuts in the menu: Choose Shortcuts > Show Shortcuts to open the Fetch Shortcuts window. Click any column header in the window to change the sort order. The menus will show the shortcuts in the same order as the window.

Cable Table Label

Send Article to a Friend

Cable Table Label -- Alert reader Phil Reese <preese@skat.usc.edu> wins the copy editing award for the week, noticing a serious typographical error in our chart listing the "standard" configuration for a Macintosh hardware handshaking cable. Somehow we switched the Macintosh pin numbers for handshaking in and out. Our apologies. The correct table is:

     Mac function     RS-232 function   Mac pin    DB-25 pin
     ------------     ---------------   -------    ---------
     RxD (receive)    Receive Data      5          3
     TxD (transmit)   Transmit Data     3          2
     Ground           Ground            4 & 8      7
     HSKi             CTS               2          5
     HSKo             RTS & DTR         1          4 & 20
     GPi              CD                7          8
