Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling

In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen). If you like this behavior, you can make it the default in the Appearance preference pane. For "Click in the scroll bar to:" select "Jump to here."

 
 

Eudora 3.1 Available

Send Article to a Friend

Eudora 3.1 Available -- Hot on the heels of the release of Claris Emailer 2.0, Qualcomm released version 3.1 of Eudora Light and Eudora Pro. The main new feature in both versions is a hierarchical Mailboxes window that provides a target for drag & drop of messages, quick access to mailboxes, and easy manipulation of your mailbox hierarchy. Eudora Pro 3.1 also features a toolbar that simplifies adding styled text to messages, support for displaying attached graphics within a message window, and "personalities." Personalities enable a single copy of Eudora Pro to send and receive mail on multiple Internet email accounts, which is ideal for those of us with lots of accounts. People who share a copy of Eudora Pro will still want to keep separate Eudora Folders with separately configured Eudora Settings files. The update for Eudora Pro is free, and Eudora Light remains completely free. The Eudora Pro updater is 1.7 MB, and Eudora Light 3.1 is 2 MB. [ACE]
