New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit

In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.

DealBITS Drawing: disclabel from SmileOnMyMac

Send Article to a Friend

If you burn a lot of CDs or DVDs, you should take a look at SmileOnMyMac's elegant utility disclabel, which helps you design your own professional-looking stick-on labels. Even if you prefer not to stick stuff on your discs, you can also use disclabel to design jewel case inserts and DVD case covers for printing on commercial stock. You can buy labels from within the program, print to direct-to-disc printers like the Canon i875 and those from Epson, and print on plain paper. disclabel imports track lists from iTunes, can be automated with AppleScript, imports images directly from iPhoto and iTunes, and lets you include and edit text in a circle. disclabel requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later.
