Emailer 2.0 Available -- Last week, Claris released Emailer 2.0, sporting a revamped interface and a handful of new landmark features. The most important change is that Emailer now stores messages in database form (rather than as separate files) which greatly reduces disk space overhead in comparison to storing messages as individual files. Emailer's Mail Actions are more robust and offer extended filtering options, and Emailer now supports hierarchical File Cabinet folders. If you upgrade from an earlier version, ensure that your existing mail converts properly by reading the installation instructions carefully. Claris has posted a 4 MB trial version of Emailer 2.0.

Find Text Leading from Acrobat PDF
Ever have to recreate a document from an Acrobat PDF? You can find out most everything about the text by using the Object Inspector, except the leading. Well, here's a cheesy way to figure it out. Open the PDF in Illustrator (you just need one page). Release any and all clipping masks. Draw a guide at the baseline of the first line of text, and one on the line below. Now, Option-drag the first line to make a copy, and position it exactly next to the original first line at baseline. Then put a return anywhere in the copied line. Now adjust leading of the copied lines, so that the second line of copy rests on the baseline of the second line of the original. Now you know your leading.
Or you could buy expensive software to find the leading. Your choice.
