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.

Poll Results: Buy and Buy

Send Article to a Friend

Poll Results: Buy and Buy -- Last week's poll asked where readers prefer to purchase Macintosh-related hardware, and (a sign of the times) online retailers were the clear favorite, cited by more than 60 percent of the poll's respondents. Also faring well were the more traditional sources of mail order catalogs (41 percent) and local Apple dealers (32 percent), while nearly 20 percent of respondents said they prefer to purchase directly from manufacturers, and 15 percent liked office and computer superstores. In retrospect, we should have called out campus dealers and other education-only channels separately, but it doesn't seem to have confused many respondents, with the "Other" category getting only three percent of the votes.
