Copy Before Submitting Web Forms

Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.

Interarchy 7.0.1 Adds Polish

Send Article to a Friend

Interarchy 7.0.1 Adds Polish -- Only a few weeks after the initial release of Interarchy 7.0 (see "Interarchy 7.0 Adds Tabs, Improves Interface" in TidBITS-718), Stairways Software has released a free update to tweak a few features and squash a few bugs. Interarchy 7.0.1 now supports custom port numbers for SFTP connections, provides keyboard shortcuts for opening folders in new tabs and for editing URLs, better handles aliases in the Bookmarks window and Startup Items folder, and more. It's free to registered users and is a 2.7 MB download. Because Interarchy 7.0.1 requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later, Stairways Software has made Interarchy 6.3 available for free for those still using Mac OS 8.5 or later versions of the classic Mac OS.
