Stop Eye Strain in Excel 2008

You can make text bigger in Excel by zooming to a larger percentage with the Zoom control in the toolbar, or by selecting the cells containing too-small text, choosing Format > Cells (Command-1), and then setting options in the Font pane. You can also increase the default font size for new sheets by modifying the Size field (next to the Standard Font field) in the General pane of Excel's preferences.

 
 

After Dark 2.0w for the new Macs

Send Article to a Friend

After Dark 2.0w for the new Macs -- John Baxter passed on this helpful news about After Dark. Apparently After Dark 2.0v is compatible with System 7.1 but incompatible with the machines released on October 19th - the Performa 600, IIvx, IIvi, PowerBook 160 and 180, and the PowerBook Duo 210 and 240. Berkeley Systems is now shipping a compatible version, 2.0w, and the free updater for 2.0v should be available within the week. You don't need to update unless you have a new machine and if you're can't find it online, you can send a note requesting 2.0w along with your After Dark 2.0 master disk to:
