Find Next Without Using the Find Dialog in Word 2008

Rarely do you want to find just one instance of a word or phrase in Word. Instead of trying to keep Word 2008's Find and Replace dialog showing while searching, which can be awkward on a small screen, try the Next Find control. After you've found the term you're looking for once, click the downward-pointing double arrow button at the bottom of the vertical scroll bar to find the next instance of your search term. The upward-pointing double arrow finds the previous instance, which is way easier than switching to Current Document Up in the expanded Find and Replace dialog.

 
 

Aperture, Logic Pro Updated

Send Article to a Friend

Aperture, Logic Pro Updated -- Apple continued to tweak its high-end applications last week, releasing updates to the photo-management program Aperture and the audio production application Logic Pro (although Apple also has a page detailing an update to Logic Express, the file it points to is the Pro update). Aperture 1.1.1 (a 13.6 MB download) follows close on the heels of last month's update and "addresses several issues related to performance, stability, color correction, and display compatibility," according to Apple. The release also refutes rumors that the Aperture development team had been disbanded; Apple responded to Macworld directly to deny the rumors.

The update for Logic Pro 7.2.1 (a 30 MB download) fixes a few bugs, including problems with import/export and support for ReWire and ReCycle on Intel-based Macs. The update also adds compatibility with Logic 7.1 songs and EuCon support for the Euphonix MC and CM408T control surfaces. [JLC]
