Open Recent Office 2008 Docs by Date

Office 2008 applications like Word and Excel now list recently opened documents on a File > Open Recent submenu. Choose More from that menu, and you'll get a multifunction Project Gallery dialog. Click the Recent button at the top and then select a date range in the Dates list to find files that were last opened today, yesterday, earlier in the week, last week, and so forth. (The Settings pane in the Project Gallery dialog lets you set how many recently opened files show in the File > Open Recent submenu.)

 
 

BBEdit 4.5.1... and 4.5.1a

Send Article to a Friend

BBEdit 4.5.1... and 4.5.1a -- Last week, Bare Bones Software released an update to BBEdit, a widely used text, HTML, and programming editor. According to the press release, the new BBEdit 4.5.1 supports HTML tags for style sheets, frames, scripts, and applets, plus provides enhanced HTML updating and validation. Other changes include welcome improvements to TableBuilder, enhancements to the Find Differences command, and support for longer search strings. Unfortunately, the rollout of BBEdit 4.5.1 wasn't smooth: the original BBEdit 4.5.1 update had a small problem, so Bare Bones released two new updaters for BBEdit 4.5.1a: a complete 2.3 MB "4.5.1 updater" (which, despite its confusing name, updates 4.5 to version 4.5.1a) and a smaller "4.5.1a" update only for people who installed the flawed 4.5.1.
