Eastgate Systems Releases Storyspace 2 -- Eastgate Systems, long-time publishers of hypertext tools and hypertext writings, has released Storyspace 2, a total rewrite of the company's innovative hypertext editor (see TidBITS-095, an entire issue devoted to the program). Storyspace 2 is now PowerPC-native, supports drag & drop throughout the program, uses contextual menus, and boasts a multiple undo feature. Improved typography, new map views, and curved link lines make working with complex hypertext webs easier. Finally, customizable, template-based HTML support and a new Storyspace reader offer better ways to distribute hypertext writings to readers. Updates to Storyspace 2 for registered users are free if you purchased after 01-Jul-00 and $95 otherwise; new copies cost $295. A 3.6 MB demo is available. [ACE]
Enter Dashboard, Expose, or Spaces Temporarily
Hold down F9, F10, F11, or F12 (or whatever you've set for the Expose and Spaces keyboard shortcuts) for a few seconds, and then release the key to enter and leave the appropriate mode without having to press the key again. This is particularly useful for Dashboard, in which you can check the contents of a widget and then return to your work with only a single key press.
