Default Folder 3.0.1 Complements Nav Services -- St. Clair Software's utility for enhancing Open and Save dialog boxes, Default Folder 3.0.1, adds support for Apple's Navigation Services as well as a handful of other improvements. Unlike Action Files (see "Action Files 1.2 Usurps Nav Services" in TidBITS-467), which disables Nav Services in favor of its own interface, Default Folder incorporates its navigation and utility features into both Navigation Services and old-style Open and Save dialogs. Another improvement is the capability to click and hold outside an Open or Save dialog box to view a pop-up menu containing a list of all open Finder windows; selecting one opens that folder in the dialog. Default Folder 3.0 is $25 shareware, or $15 if you're upgrading a copy bought before 31-Jan-98; owners who purchased after 31-Jan-98 can upgrade for free. The installer is a 870K download. If you downloaded Default Folder 3.0, you'll want the 3.0.1 version that fixes a few bugs discovered in the first days following the 3.0 release. [JLC]
Better Text Formatting in iPhoto
If you're creating a card or book in iPhoto, and you're not happy with the formatting options for the text (such as line spacing or justification), copy the text out to TextEdit, make the changes you want there, and paste it back into iPhoto, which will retain your changes.
