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.

OmniWeb 4.5 Released

Send Article to a Friend

OmniWeb 4.5 Released -- The Omni Group has released OmniWeb 4.5 , a major update of its Web browser for Mac OS X. The Omni Group developers have tossed out the program's previous home-grown rendering engine in favor of Apple's WebCore and JavaScriptCore frameworks (which are in turn based on the open-source KDE project), the same technology underlying Safari. The result is faster and more consistent page loading and better support for Web standards, while enabling the OmniWeb developers to concentrate on unique features such as voice-controlled navigation, history searching, and extensive security and filtering options (for example, not displaying images that come from servers known for pushing ads). OmniWeb 4.5 is a 4.3 MB download . A license to use the full version costs $30, but the update is free for those who have licensed OmniWeb 4.x versions. [JLC]
