Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail

If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.

(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)

Welcome to the TidBITS 1998 special gift issue, which falls outside our regular weekly publication schedule and features gift ideas contributed by TidBITS readers. Although we may not know much about any given suggestion, we've tried to provide necessary contact information to help you do more research or purchase any of the suggested gifts.

The range of suggestions was once again broad, although we were struck by the number of items that we recognized from previous gift issues. Be sure to skim the entire issue, if only because some suggestions don't fit snugly into any of the categories we've created.

Finally, best wishes for a happy holiday season from the TidBITS staff: Adam Engst, Tonya Engst, Geoff Duncan, Jeff Carlson, Matt Neuburg, and Mark Anbinder.
