Rewind Advances to 1.2 -- Power On Software has updated Rewind, its $100 utility for reverting to previous incarnations of files or the system in the event of a crash or mistake (see "Macworld SF 2001 Trend: Cool Utilities" in TidBITS-564). Rewind 1.2 adds the capability to limit the size of the Rewind archive (the catalog of changes made to files as you work on the Mac), improves stability with programs that handle memory in unusual ways, and now correctly handles Virtual PC 4 disk images, among other fixes. Although the upgrade is free, you must enter your serial number to download the full version of Rewind 1.2, including manual (a 7 MB file). Rewind runs under Mac OS versions 8.1 to 9.1 and requires at least 10 percent of your hard disk space to operate. [JLC]
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.
