MasterJuggler Catches Mac OS 8.5 Compatibility -- Alsoft has released a free update to its font-management utility MasterJuggler, fixing a few incompatibilities with Mac OS 8.5. The MasterJuggler Pro 2.0.2 Update fixes a problem when Font Guardian (a component that examines the reliability of font resources) was set to scan when the Mac is started up. This update also corrects minor glitches related to selecting items from MasterJuggler's pop-up menus. See "Font Outfitters" in TidBITS-334 for a comparison of MasterJuggler and Suitcase 3.0. The 2.0.2 updater is a 350K download. [JLC]
Fill in Gaps in Pear Note
If you ever find yourself zoning out during a meeting or class, only later to realize that you forgot to take notes for 20 minutes, Pear Note makes it easy to fill in those gaps. To do so:
- Open your Pear Note document.
- Hit play.
- Click on the last text you did type to jump to that point in the recording.
- Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.
- Take notes on the part you missed.
Your new notes will be synced to the recording just as if you'd taken them live with the rest of your notes.
