Access OpenType Font Features

OpenType fonts (.otf) often have special features, such as swashes and alternate characters, that are accessible in any app that uses the OS X font panel, including Pages and TextEdit. To access them, type and select your text, press Command-T to open the font panel, and then choose Typography from the Actions pop-up menu. That shows the Typography panel, where you can toggle available options for the font and characters you've selected.

German Translators Needed

Send Article to a Friend

German Translators Needed -- Some turnover among the energetic translators of TidBITS into German has revealed a need for a few more people to help out. If you can spend a little time each week translating a small portion of TidBITS from English to German or helping put together and distribute the finished product (for those who are fluent German editors but aren't as comfortable with translation), the German-speaking Macintosh community will thank you. For more information, see the page below. Thanks for helping out! [ACE]
