Create Multiple Inspectors in iWork

Tired of flipping between panes in the Inspector in Keynote, Pages, and Numbers? You can open multiple copies of the Inspector window with View > New Inspector, but even better, you can Option-click one of the icons at the top of the Inspector window to open that pane in a new Inspector.

Send Article to a Friend

Bad Power Mac G4 Hard Drives -- Apple has revealed that some Power Mac G4s (Digital Audio - those released in January of 2001) contain defective 40 GB and 60 GB hard drives that can damage files, cause data loss, and potentially prevent the computer from starting up. Only a limited number of machines sold in the U.S. and Canada are affected, so if you have a Power Mac G4 (Digital Audio) with a 40 GB or 60 GB hard drive, read the Tech Info Library's instructions on how to determine whether your Mac has a bad drive. If so, Apple will replace the drive under warranty. [ACE]
