Access OpenType Font Features

OpenType fonts (.otf) often have special features, such as swashes and alternate characters, that are accessible in any app that uses the OS X font panel, including Pages and TextEdit. To access them, type and select your text, press Command-T to open the font panel, and then choose Typography from the Actions pop-up menu. That shows the Typography panel, where you can toggle available options for the font and characters you've selected.

NoteBook 1.2 v180 Beefs up HTML Export

Send Article to a Friend

NoteBook 1.2 v180 Beefs up HTML Export -- Circus Ponies Software has released NoteBook 1.2 v180, a minor upgrade to their elegant snippet keeper and information manager, which I've found handy for maintaining to do lists and taking notes on complex procedures. This version adds an option to export only changed pages to HTML, preserves text styling in HTML, and automatically converts a series of multiple spaces to a non-breaking space character. You can also now choose the format for images pasted into Notebook. Circus Ponies also fixed a number of bugs, including an annoying one with the licensing system that could cause a crash on the first launch after restarting your Mac. NoteBook 1.2 v180 is a 7.7 MB download that's free to registered users; new copies cost $50. [ACE]
