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.

GoLive 6, LiveMotion 2 Shipping, Photoshop 7 Announced -- Adobe is now shipping GoLive 6, its professional Web design tool. In addition to Mac OS X compatibility, GoLive 6 adds workgroup and dynamic content authoring capabilities. LiveMotion 2, also now shipping, improves several Web animation tools and runs under Mac OS X. GoLive costs $400, with updates priced at $100; LiveMotion carries the same pricing as GoLive, but a limited time introductory price of $200 is currently in effect for new users; both programs can be purchased in a bundle for $450. Garnering more attention, however, was the announcement of Photoshop 7, which adds new features and runs natively under Mac OS X. It is expected to ship in the second quarter of 2002 for $600, or $150 for upgrading users. [JLC]
