Create Multiple Inspectors in iWork

Tired of flipping between panes in the Inspector in Keynote, Pages, and Numbers? You can open multiple copies of the Inspector window with View > New Inspector, but even better, you can Option-click one of the icons at the top of the Inspector window to open that pane in a new Inspector.

 
 

Default Folder X 2.0 Supports Tiger

Send Article to a Friend

Default Folder X 2.0 Supports Tiger -- Default Folder is the first piece of software I add to a Mac OS X system after I install the operating system. The fine people at St. Clair Software last week lived up to their excellent reputation for staying on top of system releases by pre-releasing Default Folder X 2.0 for Tiger 11 days before Tiger ships.

This update is critical: previous versions of Default Folder will not work under Tiger. I was bit by this a few times going back and forth between Jaguar and Panther. Make sure to install the new release under Panther (where it will work just fine) before you run an upgrade to Tiger. Default Folder X 2.0 is free for current registered users, and is a 4.7 MB download. [GF]
