ChronoSync Secret Menubar Shortcut

For a quick way to run a ChronoSync document without opening it, use the ChronoSync menu in the menubar. Select "Show ChronoSync menu in menubar" in ChronoSync's General Preferences window to activate the menu bar menu. Once activated, you'll see the ChronoSync circling arrows icon in the menu bar, at the top right of your screen.

You can open any scheduled ChronoSync document directly from the menu bar. If you hold down the Option key while selecting a ChronoSync document, the synchronization will run immediately without the ChronoSync document opening.

Sprechen Sie Deutsch? Our hard-working translation teams, and particularly the German team, are in need of some new volunteers to help spread the workload and make translating TidBITS issues easier for everyone. If you're interested in translating English into German, French, Japanese, or Dutch and helping promote the Macintosh community in those languages, check out the URLs below for information on what's involved. Help keep TidBITS truly international! And whether or not you're up for becoming a translator, if you enjoy reading one of our translations each week, let the translators know. The translation teams appreciate the kind letters many of you have sent over the years, and your encouragement makes the task of translating each issue all the more worthwhile. Thanks! [ACE]
