Extensis Releases Suitcase 10 -- Extensis has released Suitcase 10.1, bringing its long-standing font management software to Mac OS X. In addition to features introduced earlier this year under Mac OS 9 (see "Suitcase 10 Delivered" in TidBITS-585), the update includes Suitcase Bridge, which activates and deactivates fonts for Classic applications. Suitcase 10.1 is a free upgrade for registered users of Suitcase 10; otherwise, the full version costs $100 and upgrades from previous versions cost $50. A time-limited demo is available in U.S. English, German, French as a 14.4 MB download. [JLC]
Avoid Long Hierarchical Menus
If you right-click (or Control-click) on some item, such as a file in the Finder, and one of the sub-menus has many options (Open With is a frequent culprit), it may take several seconds to open, even on a fast machine, which is annoying if you did not actually want that sub-menu.
The trick is to not pull the cursor through the menu, but in a curve around it, so the cursor does not touch any menu items until lower on the list where you wanted to go.
