Option-click to Hide Apps Quickly

This trick has been available in the Mac OS for years, but many people still don't know it. If you have too many windows cluttering up your screen, you can hide specific ones easily as you work. When you're in any application, hold down the Option key and click on another app's window, on the Dock, or in the Finder to switch to that other app and simultaneously hide all the windows in the previously current app.

 
 

Learn Some Serious AppleScript in Newport, RI

Learn Some Serious AppleScript in Newport, RI -- Having written a book about AppleScript (AppleScript: The Definitive Guide from O'Reilly), I like being asked to do cool AppleScript-related things; and having been a college professor for many years, there's nothing I enjoy so much as live teaching in front of a classroom. So I'm really looking forward to November 11th and 12th, when I'll be teaching a minor session on scripting Microsoft Word 2004 and a major session on AppleScript Studio, in Newport, Rhode Island, as part of the AppleScript Pro Sessions. (I participated once already, back in May, in Monterey, CA, and had a great time.) There will be lots of other great teaching and learning going on in other sessions too; check out the AppleScript Pro Sessions site for more info. [MAN]
