Go Back and Forth Fast in Preview

If you're reading a PDF in Apple's Preview software, and you follow a bookmark or an internal link to move around within the PDF, you can quickly return to where you were by pressing the keyboard shortcut Command-[ (that's Command-Left Bracket). Or, you can choose Go > Back.

The command works iteratively, so you can go back to just the previously viewed page or if you issue the command again, to the page before that, and so on. There's also an equivalent Go > Forward (Command-]).

 
 

GarageBand 1.1 Released

Send Article to a Friend

GarageBand 1.1 Released -- Apple tidied up the garage a bit today with the release of GarageBand 1.1. The new version addresses a number of issues, adding per-track Echo settings and support for unprotected AAC audio files. The update also supports loop libraries located outside GarageBand's default disk location, and provides fixes related to moving GarageBand songs between different computers, the timing of individual notes and regions, and support for Propellerhead Software's ReWire (which provides a mechanism for transferring audio data between applications - like GarageBand and third-party software instruments - in real time). GarageBand 1.1 also now has the capability to rearrange tracks by dragging them. The update is a 37.5 MB download via Software Update or Apple's Web site. [JLC]
