Move the Dock Quickly

You may find it convenient to move the position of the Dock when working in certain programs or with certain files. Rather than choosing a different position from the Dock preferences pane or using a submenu in the Apple menu's Dock submenu, you can move your Dock to a different screen edge merely by Shift-dragging the separator that divides the application and document sections.

StyleWriter Update

It appears that the problems some applications are having with StyleWriter 7.2.2 are the fault of those applications, not of Apple. Ron Voss of Apple (speaking for himself, not for Apple), says:

"It now appears that Illustrator is trying to get its resolution info from a private print record field whose definition has changed. Apps which properly call GetResolution are properly getting back 360 from the driver."

And I have received similar info from people checking the info that the driver gives out when consulted properly. This is sad news because it implies that the problem will not be taken care of quickly. But users of Adobe Illustrator, SuperPaint 3.0, and any other graphics programs that print worse with StyleWriter Driver 7.2.2 are reminded that they can correct the problem easily enough by reverting to StyleWriter Driver 7.1 for those specific programs.

[I tried unsuccessfully to contact Aldus and Adobe so I could get their sides of the story on why SuperPaint and Illustrator suffer from this problem with StyleWriter 7.2.2. If anyone at either of those companies can offer an explanation and let us all know if and when a fix is planned, I'd be more than happy to report that information in a future issue. -Adam]
