Opening a Folder from the Dock

Sick of the dock on Mac OS X Leopard not being able to open folders with a simple click, like sanity demands and like it used to be in Tiger? You can, of course click it, and then click again on Open in Finder, but that's twice as many clicks as it used to be. (And while you're at it, Control-click the folder, and choose both Display as Folder and View Content as List from the contextual menu. Once you have the content displaying as a list, there's an Open command right there, but that requires Control-clicking and choosing a menu item.) The closest you can get to opening a docked folder with a single click is Command-click, which opens its enclosing folder. However, if you instead put a file from the docked folder in the Dock, and Command-click that file, you'll see the folder you want. Of course, if you forget to press Command when clicking, you'll open the file, which may be even more annoying.

Corel WordPerfect 3.5.2 Updater

Send Article to a Friend

Corel WordPerfect 3.5.2 Updater -- Corel has released an updater to WordPerfect 3.5.2, which reportedly fixes about a dozen bugs, some centered around printing envelopes. At the moment, the update is apparently only available from an overwhelmed Wildcat BBS system run by Corel; its FTP service is somewhat non-standard, and a number of Mac users have reported problems downloading and decoding the 2.5 MB update package, although I had no troubles using Fetch's "text" mode.
