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.)

 
 

Handheld TidBITS

Send Article to a Friend

Computer users of all ages and varieties have been reading and enjoying TidBITS for years. Now, thanks to the advent of the Newton MessagePad, Newton users can enjoy reading TidBITS in the palm of their hand! TidBITS reader Allan Marcus <allan_marcus@lanl.gov> uses 4D and AppleScript to convert TidBITS issues into Newton book format (starting with issue 200), and usually has each issue available within a day or so of its setext appearance.

The Newton books have the same word-for-word text content as the setext files most Mac users read. On the Newton MessagePads, though, readers can make notes around the text, copy text to the common Note Pad, leap to any given page or find any text, and mark pages for later reference. It's also an extremely handy way to read each issue!

Each Newton book issue of TidBITS (beginning with issue 200) can be found in:
