Manage Multiple ChronoSync Documents

If you have multiple ChronoSync documents and need to run your syncs or backups manually, you may find it taxing to open each ChronoSync document and execute it manually. There are two easy methods to simplify managing multiple ChronoSync documents.

  • You can add the ChronoSync documents to a Container document. A Container holds multiple ChronoSync documents and enables you to control several ChronoSync documents as if they were one document.
  • You can make use of the Scheduled Documents Manager window to collect and organize commonly used ChronoSync documents without scheduling them.

Both methods allow you to schedule or manually run your syncs and backups.

Internet Explorer 5.1 Goes Classic

Send Article to a Friend

Internet Explorer 5.1 Goes Classic -- In a welcome, though slightly unusual move, Microsoft has released Internet Explorer 5.1 - previously available only for Mac OS X - for Mac OS 8.1 through 9.2 as well, adding a few minor features and enhancing reliability. The feature set of Internet Explorer 5.1 is largely unchanged from 5.0, adding the few new features that appeared in Internet Explorer 5.1 under Mac OS X. A new Interface Extras preferences panel gives you control over a few cosmetic options: whether clicking the Address field selects the text or places the insertion point, whether Internet Explorer opens new windows or uses the front browser window when asked to go to a URL by another application, and whether new browser windows open with the toolbar expanded or use the current default setting. Another useful feature is the Command-Shift-click shortcut that opens the clicked-on link in a new window behind the current one. Also new is support for NTLMv2 authentication in addition to the previous NTLMv1 support. Internet Explorer 5.1 for Mac OS 8.1 through 9.2 requires at least 16 MB of RAM with virtual memory turned on and 12 MB of disk space. It's a 5.3 MB download. [ACE]
