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]
Expand Finder Columns Quickly
Column view in the Finder is great for navigating through your disk's hierarchy, but the columns often aren't wide enough to show the full names of all the files. To expand a column to a width that will show all file names in their entirety, double-click the handle that you would normally drag to expand or shrink the column. To expand all the visible columns to that width, Option-double-click the handle.
