Springy Dock Tricks

If you drag a file and hover over Dock icons, various useful things happen which are similar to Finder springing. If it's a window, the window un-minimizes from the Dock. If it's a stack, the corresponding folder in the Finder opens. If it's the Finder, it brings the Finder to the foreground and opens a window if one doesn't exist already. But the coolest (and most hidden) springing trick is if you hover over an application and press the Space bar, the application comes to the foreground. This is great for things like grabbing a file from somewhere to drop into a Mail composition window that's otherwise hidden. Grab the file you want, hover over the Mail icon, press the Space bar, and Mail comes to the front for you to drop the file into the compose window. Be sure that Spring-Loaded Folders and Windows is enabled in the Finder Preferences window.

TidBITS Dutch Translation News

TidBITS Dutch Translation News -- In our continuing push to switch services over to Web Crossing, we moved the TidBITS Dutch translation of TidBITS to a Web Crossing-based list last week. Thanks to the hard work of Sander Lam, Elmar Dueren, Hans van Helvert, and the rest of the volunteer Dutch translation team, the transition went smoothly. We'll be moving the Dutch Web pages over soon too, and I hope to follow that with the lists and pages for our other translations. The Dutch team is also looking for new volunteers who would like to help translate TidBITS; see the pages linked below to learn more about what's involved and how to join. [ACE]
