ATM Deluxe 4.6 with Type Reunion 2.6 -- Following the release of Adobe Type Manager Light 4.6 (see "ATM Light 4.6 Adds OpenType" in TidBITS-538), Adobe has released ATM Deluxe 4.6, which now includes Type Reunion 2.6. ATM Deluxe provides the same font smoothing features found in the free Light product, and also includes the capability to activate and deactivate font sets in lieu of storing font files in the System Folder. Version 4.6 adds support for OpenType fonts and includes online help. Abode Type Reunion hierarchically organizes font families in menus, making it easier to select variations of a single face (like bold, italic, or condensed versions of Helvetica). The update is free to registered users of ATM Deluxe 4.5 and later or Type Reunion 2.5 or later; otherwise, the software costs $49 for owners of previous versions, or $65 for a new license. Both programs require Mac OS 8.1 or later, 16 MB RAM for ATM Deluxe or 8 MB RAM for Type Reunion. The download is a hefty 28.9 MB, which also includes 15 PostScript fonts. [JLC]
Adding Links in Snow Leopard's Mail
Apple Mail in Snow Leopard now has a Command-key shortcut for adding a link to an email.
If you use plain-text email, this will not be helpful at all, but if you send styled email, it's a nice shortcut for adding URLs to your email messages. Simply select the word(s) you want to make into a link, press Command-K, and enter the URL to build into the link.
