Access OpenType Font Features

OpenType fonts (.otf) often have special features, such as swashes and alternate characters, that are accessible in any app that uses the OS X font panel, including Pages and TextEdit. To access them, type and select your text, press Command-T to open the font panel, and then choose Typography from the Actions pop-up menu. That shows the Typography panel, where you can toggle available options for the font and characters you've selected.

The Power Macintosh Upgrade Card

Send Article to a Friend

The Power Macintosh Upgrade Card can't be used in Macintosh IIvx, IIvi, and Performa 600 computers, contrary to an article in the June 1994 edition of Macworld magazine. Apple released this statement relating to their PowerPC-based accelerator card (designed for use in the PDS slot in several '040 Macs), noting that these models can be upgraded to a Power Macintosh 7100/66 or 7100/66AV model through a logic board upgrade.
