Photoshop 6.0.1 Update Released -- Adobe has updated its flagship image editor, rolling bug fixes and tweaks into Photoshop 6. The new version features a handful of usability improvements to the painting tool brush picker and makes clipping paths in EPS and TIFF files readable to programs like QuarkXPress. It also corrects problems with low memory situations and includes other performance enhancements. The 09-Mar-01 release is the "official" updater; an earlier 6.0.1 update was apparently made available too soon and quickly pulled. Users who installed the "unofficial" update need to uninstall and reinstall Photoshop 6.0, then apply the new updater. The update is a 12.4 MB download. [JLC]

You can make text bigger in Excel by zooming to a larger percentage with the Zoom control in the toolbar, or by selecting the cells containing too-small text, choosing Format > Cells (Command-1), and then setting options in the Font pane. You can also increase the default font size for new sheets by modifying the Size field (next to the Standard Font field) in the General pane of Excel's preferences.
