Using Expose within Spaces

To drag a file into an application that's running in another one of your Spaces, use Expose while in Spaces overview mode. First, press F8 to go into Spaces overview mode, then press F9 to Expose all application windows. Hover over the application window you want and wait a moment or press the Space bar, and both that space and that application come to the foreground, ready for you to drop the file.

New Performas -- Expect three new models of the Performa to appear in mid-April, the 405, 430, and 450. The Performa 405 will be exactly the same as the Performa 400 (essentially a 4/80 LC II) with a new Apple Mouse and System 7.1P replacing 7.0.1P. The 430 will also be an LC II at heart, but with a 120 MB hard disk. The Performa 450 will continue the imitation tradition, mimicking the LC III with 4 MB of RAM and a 120 MB hard drive. All will come with an external 2,400 bps data/9,600 bps send-only fax modem. None will be priced competitively with comparable Macs.
