ChronoSync Secret Menubar Shortcut

For a quick way to run a ChronoSync document without opening it, use the ChronoSync menu in the menubar. Select "Show ChronoSync menu in menubar" in ChronoSync's General Preferences window to activate the menu bar menu. Once activated, you'll see the ChronoSync circling arrows icon in the menu bar, at the top right of your screen.

You can open any scheduled ChronoSync document directly from the menu bar. If you hold down the Option key while selecting a ChronoSync document, the synchronization will run immediately without the ChronoSync document opening.

Send Article to a Friend

Default Folder X 1.5 Mixes with Cocoa -- St. Clair Software has released Default Folder X 1.5, its invaluable enhancement for Mac OS X Open and Save dialogs. Along with a few bug fixes, this version adds the previously missing compatibility with Cocoa applications and works with Bare Bones Software's Super Get Info to display information about files. Default Folder 1.5 also works with an upcoming release of Keyboard Maestro to use key commands when switching folders in file dialogs. Default Folder X 1.5 is a free update to users of previous versions; it's a 1.7 MB download. [JLC]
