Access OpenType Font Features

OpenType fonts (.otf) often have special features, such as swashes and alternate characters, that are accessible in any app that uses the OS X font panel, including Pages and TextEdit. To access them, type and select your text, press Command-T to open the font panel, and then choose Typography from the Actions pop-up menu. That shows the Typography panel, where you can toggle available options for the font and characters you've selected.

Free Jaguar with MYOB

Send Article to a Friend

Free Jaguar with MYOB -- Apple may be bundling a "New User Edition" of Intuit's QuickBooks accounting program with new professional level Macs, but long-time Macintosh accounting software vendor MYOB isn't taking it lying down. Buy a copy of MYOB AccountEdge before 31-Mar-03 and you can get a free copy of Mac OS X 10.2 from MYOB. Oh, and that bundled version of QuickBooks? It's not QuickBooks Pro 5, and you must upgrade to QuickBooks Pro 5 to get job costing, estimates, time tracking, and a new visual report finder. [ACE]
