Adobe Systems, Inc. announced it has purchased GoLive Systems, Inc., makers of the well regarded GoLive CyberStudio Web authoring package, as well as the server-based GoLive Publishing System. According to Adobe's press release, CyberStudio rounds out Adobe's suite of applications commonly used to produce online content, including Photoshop, Illustrator, and Acrobat. Adobe's plans for its existing (and cross-platform) HTML authoring application PageMill are unclear, although PageMill is a less sophisticated application than CyberStudio. The acquisition leads to worry Adobe will handle CyberStudio as clumsily as PageMill, which was the premiere HTML authoring tool for Macintosh when Adobe purchased it from Ceneca Communications in 1995.
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.)
