Eudora Pro 4.0 Finalized -- Qualcomm has released Eudora Pro 4.0 for the Macintosh (we reviewed Eudora Pro 3.0 in TidBITS-357). A demo (6 MB download) is available and the full product should begin shipping today for $39 (no discounts for upgrades). New features include background sending and receiving of email, improved interface aesthetics, simplified filter creation, dockable windows, and numerous minor tweaks. Qualcomm also added support for Internet standards such as LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, an up-and-coming directory services protocol) and ACAP (Application Configuration Access Protocol, which enables system administrators to configure Eudora automatically from a server), as well as viewing and composing of M/HTML messages that include HTML formatting and graphics. This version lacks IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol, an alternate way of retrieving email that's popular in large organizations); IMAP support is slated for version 4.1. Eudora Light remains at version 3.1.3. [ACE]
Close Word Comments Easily
If you don't like how precisely you must mouse in Microsoft Word 2008 to delete comment balloons, note that you can Control-click (right-click) a balloon to pop up a contextual menu. From the menu choose Delete Comment, and you're done.
Also, to get rid of all comments at once, choose Tools > Customize Keyboard and set up a keyboard shortcut to go with the DeleteAllComments command, available in the Tools category. Oddly, there's no Delete Comment keyboard customization option that I can find.
