Canon PowerShot Keynote S250 -- Be careful what you suggest! After I wrote about how I transferred Keynote slides to my Canon PowerShot S100 camera for display on a standard television in "The PowerShot Presentation" in TidBITS-669, I was amused to learn that Canon plans to release a new member of the diminutive PowerShot camera family that boasts direct integration with a forthcoming release of Apple's Keynote presentation program. Obviously, the camera doesn't need much in the way of changes to be able to play slides on a TV or projector with RCA plugs, and in fact, the main difference is that when the camera is in presentation mode, switching from one picture to the next honors transitions developed in Keynote. Also, the camera knows not to power down automatically when it's in presentation mode, although it does turn off its LCD display to save power. Keynote 1.1 and iSync 1.1 will be required; Apple should be announcing them today. [ACE]
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.
