Time for a Fetch Refresh?

In the Fetch FTP client, if you see a time stamp like "As of 6/19/10 2:29 PM" above the file list, that means that Fetch is re-using a file list it downloaded earlier. Click the swooshing-arrow refresh button (located beside the time stamp) to refresh the list.

Adobe Discontinues FrameMaker for Macintosh

Send Article to a Friend

Adobe Discontinues FrameMaker for Macintosh -- In an unsurprising announcement, Adobe Systems said that it would discontinue the Macintosh version of the high-end publishing program FrameMaker as of 21-Apr-04. Support for FrameMaker 7.1 for the Mac will continue through 21-Apr-05. Adobe never brought FrameMaker to Mac OS X, forcing long-time users to run it in Mac OS X's Classic environment. The move leaves Macintosh FrameMaker users with several unpalatable options: switch to Windows (or Solaris), where Adobe plans to continue developing FrameMaker, or move to InDesign CS, which lacks some of FrameMaker's features for handling long documents and XML imports and exports.
