Mellel 2.0 Ships -- The Israeli company RedleX has released Mellel 2.0, a significant upgrade to their word processor with a slew of new features aimed largely at working with long and complex documents. Mellel 2.0 now supports sections and columns, includes extensive hyphenation dictionaries, does a better job of importing and exporting RTF to and from Mellel's proprietary file format, controls widows and orphans, and offers a Keep with Next option. It also provides automatic table sizing, background colors, facing pages, more flexible paragraph controls, and more, although revision tracking and commenting features aren't mentioned. Mellel 2.0 costs $50; upgrades for registered users are free and a free trial version is available as a 13.4 MB download. [ACE]
Adding Links in Snow Leopard's Mail
Apple Mail in Snow Leopard now has a Command-key shortcut for adding a link to an email.
If you use plain-text email, this will not be helpful at all, but if you send styled email, it's a nice shortcut for adding URLs to your email messages. Simply select the word(s) you want to make into a link, press Command-K, and enter the URL to build into the link.
