BBEdit 6.1.1 Addresses Conflicts, Fixes Bugs -- Less than a week after releasing BBEdit 6.1, Bare Bones Software has issued a minor update to fix crashes caused by bugs in St. Clair Software's Screen Catcher 2.3.3 and earlier (an update to 2.3.4 is already available) and Logitech's MouseWare 3.5.1 and earlier. Also fixed in BBEdit 6.1.1 are a crash related to bringing up the Forms/Button dialog, an About box drawing glitch, and a bug in which using root addressing for a URL incorrectly added an extra slash. The update is free and recommended for all users of BBEdit 6.0 and higher. Bare Bones has released updaters for both BBEdit 6.0.x (8.3 MB) and 6.1 (1.3 MB). [ACE]
Close Word Comments Easily
If you don't like how precisely you must mouse in Microsoft Word 2008 to delete comment balloons, note that you can Control-click (right-click) a balloon to pop up a contextual menu. From the menu choose Delete Comment, and you're done.
Also, to get rid of all comments at once, choose Tools > Customize Keyboard and set up a keyboard shortcut to go with the DeleteAllComments command, available in the Tools category. Oddly, there's no Delete Comment keyboard customization option that I can find.
