Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail

If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.

(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)

 
 

Take Control of Upgrading to Panther in Japanese

Send Article to a Friend

Last week, we released yet another Take Control title, but this one's a bit different. It's Joe Kissell's "Take Control of Upgrading to Panther," translated into Japanese for the many Macintosh users in Japan and elsewhere who prefer to read in Japanese. It was translated for us by the industrious volunteer TidBITS Japanese translation team, although we insisted on compensating them for their significant effort. As a result, the Japanese translation costs US$7.50, split evenly between us, Joe, and the translation team.

To thank those Japanese speakers who already purchased the English version of Joe's ebook, we're offering them a free copy of the translation. If you fall into that category, send Tonya email at <tc-comments@tidbits.com> so she can look up your Kagi or eSellerate order and send you a coupon for a free copy of the translation. Since we can't promise a schedule for translations of updates to Joe's ebook, everyone who orders either the English or Japanese version will be eligible to receive free updates in English, with the translation coming later.

Needless to say, we're at a huge disadvantage when it comes to trying to tell Japanese publications and Web sites about this translation, so any help anyone can provide in this arena would be extremely appreciated.
