CS Odessa Sponsoring TidBITS -- We're happy to announce our latest sponsor, Computer Systems Odessa, makers of the intelligent diagramming and business drawing program ConceptDraw. Unlike most graphics programs, which provide access only to the visible attributes of objects, ConceptDraw lets you not only access all of the internal data that describes a given graphic object, but also lets you use formulas to create relationships between objects and give them customized behavior. The result is a fascinating program - grab a demo copy and check out Matt Neuburg's review, "Make the Connection with ConceptDraw" in TidBITS-553, for a more detailed description. CS Odessa is also unusual in the Macintosh world by virtue of their geographic location - they're based in Ukraine, and were the first company from there to exhibit at last month's Macworld Expo. It's great to see companies from outside the U.S. contributing so significantly to the Macintosh world, and CS Odessa is even helping revitalize the Russian translation of TidBITS. [ACE]
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.
