Access OpenType Font Features

OpenType fonts (.otf) often have special features, such as swashes and alternate characters, that are accessible in any app that uses the OS X font panel, including Pages and TextEdit. To access them, type and select your text, press Command-T to open the font panel, and then choose Typography from the Actions pop-up menu. That shows the Typography panel, where you can toggle available options for the font and characters you've selected.

Palm Desktop 2.6.3 Supports Newest Handhelds -- Palm has released Palm Desktop 2.6.3, a small update that primarily provides compatibility with the latest Palm devices running Palm OS 4.0. The new version updates Palm's HotSync synchronization software to improve data transfers using the m500 series' Universal USB Connector, plus adds the capability to transfer files to an expansion card (see "Palm Announces Thin Color m505" in TidBITS-573). The update also fixes a problem with the Instant Palm Desktop extension. Palm Desktop 2.6.3 is a free update, and is a 6.1 MB download. [JLC]
