ConceptDraw Presenter Takes On PowerPoint -- CS Odessa has released ConceptDraw Presenter 1.0, the latest product derived from their powerful diagramming software (see "Make the Connection with ConceptDraw" in TidBITS-553). ConceptDraw Presenter competes directly with Microsoft PowerPoint - it enables you to create presentations with text, graphics, and sounds, plus transitions between slides. You can display presentations directly within ConceptDraw Presenter or export to PowerPoint format, HTML, PDF, Macromedia Flash, or several graphic formats. ConceptDraw Presenter can also open PowerPoint presentations as well as ConceptDraw diagrams. Although this initial version of ConceptDraw Presenter has some rough edges, it appears to offer a credible alternative to PowerPoint for those who don't already own Microsoft Office. ConceptDraw Presenter is available for both Macintosh (Mac OS 8.6 through Mac OS X) and Windows for $200; owners of other ConceptDraw products can buy it for $120, and academic users pay $85. A demo version that can't save is available as a 10.3 MB download. [ACE]
Dragging between Spaces
Juggling various applications within multiple Spaces? If you drag an application window to the edge of your screen and pause for a moment, Mac OS X will move the window into the space that lives in that direction.
