Easy Fetch Upload

If you want to upload an open file (e.g. in Photoshop or BBEdit) to a remote server via the Fetch FTP client, you can use drag-and drop without switching to the Finder. Just drag the small document icon in the window title bar to a Fetch window. If the icon won't drag, make sure the file is saved.

Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.1.1 Squashes Bugs

Send Article to a Friend

Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.1.1 Squashes Bugs -- Mac OS X users running Power On Software's Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.1 should definitely upgrade to the just-released version 4.1.1. Fixed are bugs related to printing, the periodic full save on quit, HTML exporting from Public Event and Public Contact servers, dragging events from the calendar to the To-Do list, disabling QuickDay in the menubar, and more. The update is a free 15 MB download, and again, it's only necessary for those running Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.1 in Mac OS X - the current version of the program for Mac OS 9 remains 4.0.3. [ACE]
