Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling

In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen). If you like this behavior, you can make it the default in the Appearance preference pane. For "Click in the scroll bar to:" select "Jump to here."

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]
