Spin Through Toolbar View Options

Although many people never change their toolbars from the default settings, all standard toolbars on the Mac offer six states: icon only, text only, and icon and text, with all three coming in normal and small size. You can change them by choosing View > Customize Toolbar.

But there's a shortcut that makes it easier to check out each variant. Simply Command-click the toolbar lozenge at the upper right of a window, and the toolbar switches to the next view. Click it enough times, and you cycle back to the start.

 
 

ClarisWorks Review

Send Article to a Friend

by Matthew Wall -- wall@cc.swarthmore.edu

This review does not compare different works programs, but it will give you a good understanding of how ClarisWorks integrates different types of software into one functional package. In my opinion, ClarisWorks is the best overall of the three new works programs (BeagleWorks and GreatWorks being the others). Whether ClarisWorks is right for you depends on three factors:

  • The importance of easy integration and consistency of interface between different modules/applications.

  • The relative need for certain features in each module.

  • The cost and efficacy of ClarisWorks compared to shareware and commercial alternatives.
