Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling

In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen). If you like this behavior, you can make it the default in the Appearance preference pane. For "Click in the scroll bar to:" select "Jump to here."

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]
