Editing iCal Events in Snow Leopard

Snow Leopard makes looking at event details in iCal easier. In the Leopard version of iCal, you had to double-click an event to reveal only some information in a pop-up box; you then needed to click the Edit button (or press Command-E) to edit an item's information. In Snow Leopard, choose Edit > Show Inspector (or press Command-Option-I) to bring up a floating inspector that provides an editable view of any items selected in your calendar.

Panorama V 4.9.6 Released

Send Article to a Friend

Panorama V 4.9.6 Released -- Back in September 2003, we noted in TidBITS-697 that ProVUE Development had released a public preview version of Panorama, their long-standing database program. Although Panorama V retains its preview status, it's working well in Mac OS X and ProVUE continues to add features quietly while moving toward a major release. New in the just-released Panorama 4.9.6 is a feature called Channels that links data in Panorama to the outside world in abstracted ways, initially via dialing the phone and sending email; a Channel Workshop wizard helps develop new channels. Another new feature, "generic fields," helps you link Panorama databases with similar information, and to link a database with external software such as Mac OS X's Address Book. More minor improvements include scroll wheel support, additional options for elements like checkboxes and radio buttons, support for building AppleScript scripts on the fly, and the capability to run procedures in the background. The upgrade is free to registered users of the preview version; anyone who wants to give Panorama V a spin can download the 7.4 MB file and use it with up to 250 records. [ACE]
