Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling

In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen). If you like this behavior, you can make it the default in the Appearance preference pane. For "Click in the scroll bar to:" select "Jump to here."

Send Article to a Friend

The European pricing article in TidBITS-168 prompted a tremendous response, which I've forwarded in part to various groups, where I hope the discussion will continue. It's difficult and time-consuming for me to repost comments so please, consider posting comments to a group before sending them to me personally. If you do send them to me, please note if you DON'T want me to repost them anywhere (I avoid anything that's obviously sensitive, but I'm not omniscient).
