Create Multiple Inspectors in iWork

Tired of flipping between panes in the Inspector in Keynote, Pages, and Numbers? You can open multiple copies of the Inspector window with View > New Inspector, but even better, you can Option-click one of the icons at the top of the Inspector window to open that pane in a new Inspector.

 
 

User Group 7.1 Pricing

Send Article to a Friend

All the hubbub about Apple charging for System 7.1 this fall actually did some good. Roger Heinen, Apple Senior Vice President and General Manager, announced that Apple is giving user group members a special promotional price on System 7.1 until 01-Feb-93. To take advantage of the 20% price reduction (that makes the price $27.95 instead of $34.95) you must:

  • Call 800/769-APPLE before 01-Feb-93.

  • Identify yourself as a user group member.

  • Provide the person chained to the telephone with the name of your registered Apple User Group.

  • And finally, provide mailing address and payment information.
