Snapz Pro X 1.0.7 Released -- Ambrosia Software has released Snapz Pro X 1.0.7, the latest version of their Mac OS X screen capture utility. The new version can capture movies of screen actions with less impact on the Mac during capturing (at the cost of a lower frame rate). The update also adds localization for Korean (joining Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Japanese, Spanish, Swedish, and Traditional Chinese) and makes localized documentation a separate download, thus reducing the size of the Snapz Pro X download significantly. A number of annoying bugs have been fixed, including problems Snapz Pro X would cause when taking screenshots of X11 applications, a conflict with SpellCatcher X, and problems with capturing full-screen applications like games (and possibly Keynote presentations). And, in a welcome change, Snapz Pro X now defaults to overwriting screenshots if you enter the same name as an existing screenshot; this eases the process of replacing bad screenshots. Registered users who purchased directly from Ambrosia can upgrade for free; if you received a licensed copy of Snapz Pro X with your Mac, you can upgrade to 1.0.7 for $19. It's a 4.1 MB download.

Go Back and Forth Fast in Preview
If you're reading a PDF in Apple's Preview software, and you follow a bookmark or an internal link to move around within the PDF, you can quickly return to where you were by pressing the keyboard shortcut Command-[ (that's Command-Left Bracket). Or, you can choose Go > Back.
The command works iteratively, so you can go back to just the previously viewed page or if you issue the command again, to the page before that, and so on. There's also an equivalent Go > Forward (Command-]).
