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.

ConceptDraw World Conference 2002

Send Article to a Friend

ConceptDraw World Conference 2002 -- We don't normally mention conferences in advance, mostly because there are so many of them and they're all so similar. But CS Odessa's upcoming ConceptDraw World Conference tickled our fancy because of the fascinating choice of venue - they're holding it in Odessa on the Black Sea in the Ukraine from 28-Mar-02 through 30-Mar-02. There's no question the trip is a bit of a haul from the U.S. (less so from Europe, of course), so the conference includes plenty of time for sightseeing and parties. The weather is supposed to be pretty good around that time of year, and a few days after the conference, on April 1st, the city bans cars from downtown and has a huge April Fools Day parade that draws half a million people. CS Odessa was the first company from that part of the world to exhibit at Macworld Expo back in 2001; serious ConceptDraw users who want to repay the visit and learn more about ConceptDraw should take a look.
