Go Back and Forth Fast in Preview

If you're reading a PDF in Apple's Preview software, and you follow a bookmark or an internal link to move around within the PDF, you can quickly return to where you were by pressing the keyboard shortcut Command-[ (that's Command-Left Bracket). Or, you can choose Go > Back.

The command works iteratively, so you can go back to just the previously viewed page or if you issue the command again, to the page before that, and so on. There's also an equivalent Go > Forward (Command-]).

 
 

G3 Ethernet Update

Send Article to a Friend

G3 Ethernet Update -- Apple has released an updated Ethernet driver (version 2.0.1) for its new Power Macintosh G3 systems (but, notably, not for the PowerBook G3). The update corrects possible data corruption problems with using built-in Ethernet on high-traffic networks, and allows desktop G3 systems to connect reliably to auto-sensing 10/100 Mbps Ethernet hubs. The download is only 98K, but you'll need DiskCopy 6.1 or ShrinkWrap 3.0 to access the update's disk image file. [GD]
