New Virtual Desktop -- After the mention of Virtual Desktop in "Monitor Shielding and Background" in TidBITS-426, Ross Brown <email@example.com> of AWOL Software Productions advises us that you need Virtual Desktop 1.9.2, not 1.9.1, for compatibility with Mac OS 8.0 and 8.1. The new version, released 24-Apr-98, will be archived at Info-Mac later this week. [ACE]
Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling
In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen). If you like this behavior, you can make it the default in the Appearance preference pane. For "Click in the scroll bar to:" select "Jump to here."
