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]
Two Shortcuts for App Exposé
If you want to see all the windows for a particular app via App Exposé, there are two hidden shortcuts. For either, start by pressing Command-Tab to bring up the app switcher. Then, while still holding down the Command key, press either the 1 key or the up arrow. That puts you into App Expose mode, with all of an app's windows showing, and recent documents in a row across the bottom of the screen. Let up on the Command key, and then you can press Tab to cycle through all the running apps.
