Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail

If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.

(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)

 
 

PostScript, The Sequel

Send Article to a Friend

Adobe Systems Inc. announced its plans to announce PostScript Level 2 on June 5 of this year. Level 2 will incorporate all 52 of Level 1's extensions and will include new operators designed for Display PostScript. Level 2 will make PostScript more efficient and more powerful, and should increase processing speed significantly as well. Jill Kyte, manager of Adobe's product marketing group was quoted in InfoWorld as saying, "our number one issue with this revision is improved performance."

Adobe's announcement comes just days after its introduction of the Emerald, a raster image processor (RIP) controller that uses a RISC processor. The Emerald runs three to seven times faster than Adobe's older 68020-based Atlas controller. The Emerald controller and faster PostScript Level 2 can only improve Adobe's position in the competition with Microsoft and Apple's TrueImage (and HP's PCL-5).
