Re-Order the Fetch Shortcuts Menus

Do you use a shortcuts menu frequently in Fetch? Whether you use the Shortcuts menu bar menu or the "heart" shortcuts pop-up menu in the New Connection dialog, you can change the order of the shortcuts in the menu: Choose Shortcuts > Show Shortcuts to open the Fetch Shortcuts window. Click any column header in the window to change the sort order. The menus will show the shortcuts in the same order as the window.

MacUser Oops

Send Article to a Friend

Normally we magazine types prefer to avoid talking about one another in print, because we know better than anybody how to write nasty letters to the editor. In this instance, though, I must set that unwritten rule aside and hope that my friends at MacUser don't take offense. We merely want to set the record straight so PowerBook 140 users don't have unrealistic expectations.

When MacUser wrote about the PowerBook 145 in the Oct-92 issue, they stated incorrectly that "any 140 that comes in for servicing will be repaired as a 145. So if the CPU daughterboard in your 140 fails, the resulting repair will give you a PowerBook 145."

It sounds like a great policy, but it is one that Apple unfortunately does not share. If you send in a 140 for Apple to fix, it will come back a 140, sorry. MacUser will print a correction in the December issue, which, given the fact that it's almost the middle of October, should be out any day now.
