Adjust Multiple Column Sizes Simultaneously

Within the Finder, Column View enables you to see folder hierarchies, with each subsequent level getting its own column. Dragging on the double lines at the base of a column divider changes the preceding column's width. But Option-drag on any divider, and all the columns in the window change to the same width.

PowerPoint Problem

Send Article to a Friend

PowerPoint Problem -- We found out more details about what may have caused the problem Andrew Nielsen reported in TidBITS #169 with launching PowerPoint from his Duo. It turns out that launching PowerPoint 3.0 will crash any enabled Mac if you use a version of the Shared Code Manager earlier than 1.0.5. The Shared Code manager is an extension that allows OLE (object linking and embedding) to work with PowerPoint. You can fix the problem in the short term by trashing Shared Code Manager and in the long term by using an updated version of the Shared Code Manager.
