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.

Send Article to a Friend

Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.5.3 Improves Servers -- Now Software has released Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.5.3, a bug-fix upgrade to the company's multi-user calendaring and contact software. The update focuses on fixing problems in the Now Up-to-Date server and Now Contact server programs that mediate the sharing of calendar and contact data; you can read the change list for the gory details. There are some changes to the two client applications as well, and since the update is free to anyone running Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.x, it's worth the 15.2 MB download. [ACE]
