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.)

Help Translate TidBITS -- We'd like to congratulate Heike Kurtz, who coordinates the volunteers who translate TidBITS into German each week, on the birth of her son, Martin. The German translation has been ably coordinated by Hartmut Greiser in Heike's absence, but now that she's back, she's hoping to increase the size of the German translation team. If you're interested in helping to make TidBITS available to the German-speaking world, check out the German Web page below for a description of what's involved and how to get started. Other translations are looking for more volunteers as well, so if you'd like to help translate TidBITS into Chinese, Dutch, French, or Japanese, check out the links below. If you're interested in translating TidBITS into other languages, contact me at <ace@tidbits.com> and we'll see if we can put together the necessary translation team. [ACE]
