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."

ACTION Files 1.1 Centralizes File Organization

Send Article to a Friend

With its release of ACTION Files 1.1, Power On Software is expanding the edges of what can be done within Open and Save dialog boxes. The well-received utility (see "Get a Piece of the ACTION Files" in TidBITS 434) allows you to access many Finder-level commands from within the traditionally limited dialog boxes. Version 1.1 adds the ability to choose default folders for applications and to assign keyboard shortcuts to commonly used items, plus offers direct support for applications that employ several variations of Save As menu commands. ACTION Files 1.1 also remembers window location settings for each application and improves the display of available free disk space and other information. ACTION Files 1.1 is available through retail outlets for $50; Now Utilities (and, by extension, Super Boomerang) customers can upgrade for $30; owners of version 1.0 can download a free upgrade. A 30-day demonstration version is also available.
