ChronoSync Secret Menubar Shortcut

For a quick way to run a ChronoSync document without opening it, use the ChronoSync menu in the menubar. Select "Show ChronoSync menu in menubar" in ChronoSync's General Preferences window to activate the menu bar menu. Once activated, you'll see the ChronoSync circling arrows icon in the menu bar, at the top right of your screen.

You can open any scheduled ChronoSync document directly from the menu bar. If you hold down the Option key while selecting a ChronoSync document, the synchronization will run immediately without the ChronoSync document opening.

Palm Buddy Update Adds Converters

Send Article to a Friend

Palm Buddy Update Adds Converters -- PalmPilot or Palm III owners who use Macs can download Palm Buddy 1.1, Florent Pillet's invaluable utility for backing up and installing PalmPilot files (see "A New Buddy for PalmPilot Users" in TidBITS-436). The new version adds plug-ins for two Palm-based database programs, JFile and MobileDB, which enable you to install tab-delimited text files by dropping them onto Palm Buddy's window on the Mac. Version 1.1 also adds the capability to drop folders onto Palm Buddy, enabling users to restore a previous backup in a single step. Numerous bug fixes, support for faster serial connections, and plug-ins for non-Roman languages round out the update. The $20 shareware program is a 1.2 MB download; upgrades are free to registered owners.

In related PalmPilot news, a public beta of the new Macintosh Palm Desktop 2.0v2 will appear in early November, according to Doug Wirnowski of Palm Computing/3Com. The software is built upon Claris Organizer, which 3Com bought from Apple (see "Palm Organizer for Macintosh: Details Emerge" in TidBITS-432). [JLC]
