Spin Through Toolbar View Options

Although many people never change their toolbars from the default settings, all standard toolbars on the Mac offer six states: icon only, text only, and icon and text, with all three coming in normal and small size. You can change them by choosing View > Customize Toolbar.

But there's a shortcut that makes it easier to check out each variant. Simply Command-click the toolbar lozenge at the upper right of a window, and the toolbar switches to the next view. Click it enough times, and you cycle back to the start.

Conflict Catcher 8.0.9 Supports Mac OS 9.2 and Mac OS X -- Casady & Greene has released Conflict Catcher 8.0.9, a minor release of their venerable extension manager. (See "Nice Catch, Conflict Catcher" in TidBITS-446 for a review of Conflict Catcher 8.) Like so many of the previous releases of Conflict Catcher, this one doesn't add any major features but updates the program's internal data to support Mac OS 9.2. However, it's an important update for Mac OS X users because it fixes a problem with requesting a serial number when booting into Mac OS X's Classic mode. Another fix addresses a problem in the sets activated by the Mac OS X startup set feature. Conflict Catcher 8.0.9 is a free update for registered users of Conflict Catcher 8; it's a 2.1 MB download.
