Enter Dashboard, Expose, or Spaces Temporarily

Hold down F9, F10, F11, or F12 (or whatever you've set for the Expose and Spaces keyboard shortcuts) for a few seconds, and then release the key to enter and leave the appropriate mode without having to press the key again. This is particularly useful for Dashboard, in which you can check the contents of a widget and then return to your work with only a single key press.

FileMaker Pro 4.1v2 Update Withdrawn

Send Article to a Friend

FileMaker Pro 4.1v2 Update Withdrawn -- FileMaker, Inc., has withdrawn its recently released FileMaker Pro 4.1v2 update, which largely addressed ambiguities in the program's treatment of dates using two-digit years. FileMaker claims to have identified additional date-related issues that weren't covered by the previous 4.1v2 update and plans to release a 4.1v3 fix. In the meantime, FileMaker recommends anyone using FileMaker Pro 4.1v2 downgrade to FileMaker 4.1v1. [GD]
