New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit

In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.

Virtual PC 2.1.1 Update Available

Send Article to a Friend

Virtual PC 2.1.1 Update Available -- Connectix has released a free updater for Virtual PC that upgrades Virtual PC 2.0, 2.0.1, or 2.1 to version 2.1.1. (See "Virtual PC 2.0: Not Just a Minor Update" in TidBITS-433 for an overview of Virtual PC.) Version 2.1.1 fixes a problem in Virtual PC's emulated clock chip so that it now correctly understands leap years, and it corrects a problem that sent extraneous data to the COM ports when sharing Macintosh folders or using drag & drop. The Virtual PC 2.1.1 updater is a 740K download; users of Windows 95 or 98 also need a separate 770K Windows updater. [GD]
