Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling

In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen). If you like this behavior, you can make it the default in the Appearance preference pane. For "Click in the scroll bar to:" select "Jump to here."

Text Wrangler 1.5.1 and Mailsmith 2.1.1 Available -- Hot on the heels of last week's release of BBEdit 7.1.2, Bare Bones Software has shipped two more maintenance upgrades. TextWrangler 1.5.1 adds Rendezvous discovery of local FTP servers, an Open Scripts Folder command, and more of those sort of niggling features and bug fixes that can make a huge difference in everyday usability. TextWrangler 1.5.1 requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later and is a 7.7 MB download. Switching to the email side of things, Mailsmith 2.1.1 adds the capability to view the source of outgoing messages and fixes a number of minor bugs. It's a 14.9 MB download and requires Mac OS X 10.1.5 or later, with 10.2.6 or later recommended. [ACE]
