Access OpenType Font Features

OpenType fonts (.otf) often have special features, such as swashes and alternate characters, that are accessible in any app that uses the OS X font panel, including Pages and TextEdit. To access them, type and select your text, press Command-T to open the font panel, and then choose Typography from the Actions pop-up menu. That shows the Typography panel, where you can toggle available options for the font and characters you've selected.

Free CD

Send Article to a Friend

CD-ROMs are the rage these days, and Apple just added a new twist with its new AppleLink CD. Since a CD based on an online service rapidly becomes obsolete, I find the CD a tad pricey at $299 per year (or $649 for multiple users), though AppleLink itself is a bit expensive as well. The CD includes the technical information library as well as product data, public articles, bulletin board conferences, and documentation for solutions to hardware and software problems. The CD also offers technical, marketing, and support materials from more than 400 third-party vendors, along with 15 MB of Apple software updates and selections of freeware and shareware.

As a hook, Apple is giving away free sample versions of the CD until 31-Dec-92. I have no idea if the sample CD is crippled, but hey, if it's free it can't be all bad, right? To order, call Apple Online Services and ask nicely.
