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.

HotSync 2.6.1 Fixes Palm Sync Problems

HotSync 2.6.1 Fixes Palm Sync Problems -- Palm, Inc. has released HotSync 2.6.1, which solves a Palm handheld synchronization problem introduced by Apple's recent Mac OS 9.0.4 update. Changes in the Mac's USB software caused HotSync operations to time out, especially when using HotSync conduits for AvantGo and Outlook Express; the free HotSync 2.6.1 release fixes these problems. Existing Palm Desktop 2.5 users can install just the HotSync 2.6.1 software, a 1.8 MB download. New users or users of earlier versions of Palm Desktop need to download the free 6.6 MB Palm Desktop 2.6.1 package. This release comes on the heels of Handspring's Palm Desktop 2.6, which appears to be the same software on the surface, though Handspring's release presumably includes additional software for using its USB-only HotSync cradles with the Visor handheld.
