Adjust Multiple Column Sizes Simultaneously

Within the Finder, Column View enables you to see folder hierarchies, with each subsequent level getting its own column. Dragging on the double lines at the base of a column divider changes the preceding column's width. But Option-drag on any divider, and all the columns in the window change to the same width.

BBEdit 7.0.3 Squashes Bugs

Send Article to a Friend

BBEdit 7.0.3 Squashes Bugs -- Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 7.0.3, a minor but worthwhile update to their powerful text and HTML editing software. Along with a number of bug fixes (see the full release notes for a complete list), BBEdit 7.0.3 provides a new option in the "Text Files: Opening" preference panel that optionally links character set encoding to the HTML or XML character set of the file. (Being able to turn that option off should let BBEdit open documents which contain data that can't be correctly represented - something we do daily here at TidBITS!) BBEdit 7.0.3 also works around a limitation in Macromedia Dreamweaver MX so non-ASCII characters can correctly be passed back and forth to BBEdit, and turns off the default application preference for QuickTime playback to permit BBEdit to open items (such as .m3u and SMIL files) that QuickTime considers its own. Two other improved features: there's a new HTML placeholder for inserting the short user name in Mac OS X, and the Close Current Tag command is a bit smarter. The BBEdit 7.0.3 update is free to registered users and is a 15.1 MB download. [ACE]
