Better Text Formatting in iPhoto

If you're creating a card or book in iPhoto, and you're not happy with the formatting options for the text (such as line spacing or justification), copy the text out to TextEdit, make the changes you want there, and paste it back into iPhoto, which will retain your changes.

SuperCard on the Block

Send Article to a Friend

This week, Allegiant Technologies confirmed months of rumor by publicly announcing it is seeking a buyer for its well-regarded multimedia authoring program SuperCard. (See "Surprised by SuperCard" in TidBITS-369.) Allegiant recently updated SuperCard to version 3.0.3 for compatibility with Mac OS 8, and currently plans to sell and support SuperCard until a buyer is found (in fact, they've extended $69.95 holiday pricing for SuperCard 3.0 through February). Allegiant is also seeking a new home for its Flamethrower CGI engine and the scriptable Internet protocol engine Marionet, and recently spun SoundMaker back to its original publisher, MicroMat. Although Allegiant had been developing a Windows version of SuperCard, the product has faced strong competition from the popular (and cross-platform) Macromedia Director, and Allegiant's recently-introduced Internet products have had to compete with well-established (and often free) products such as UserLand Frontier.
