Macworld has ended, starting out full of sound and fury (mostly sound) and draining off into the waters of Boston Harbor as everyone tried their hardest to be perky and polite when in fact they too were having trouble standing up. The weather turned out good this year, and I found the company of so many kindred spirits equally as pleasant. I enjoyed meeting many of you with whom I've spoken in the past, and I was gratified for the first time to have people stop me in the crowded aisles and thank me for TidBITS. It is I who should do the thanking since I couldn't and wouldn't do it without the many TidBITS readers. Incidentally, if you're wondering, we estimate that between 40,000 and 50,000 people read TidBITS each week. That estimate comes from readership numbers for the Usenet group comp.sys.mac.digest, our Internet mailing list, and the various commercial services. The great unknown comes from the difficult-to-track private BBSs, many of which carry TidBITS.
Using Expose within Spaces
To drag a file into an application that's running in another one of your Spaces, use Expose while in Spaces overview mode. First, press F8 to go into Spaces overview mode, then press F9 to Expose all application windows. Hover over the application window you want and wait a moment or press the Space bar, and both that space and that application come to the foreground, ready for you to drop the file.
