Extend Mac OS X's Screenshots

Mac OS X has a variety of built in screenshot methods. Here's a look at a few that offer more versatility than the basic full-screen capture (Command-Shift-3):

• Press Command-Shift-4 and you'll get a crosshair cursor with which you can drag to select and capture a certain area of the screen.

• Press Command-Shift-4-Space to select the entire window that the cursor is over, clicking on the window will then capture it. The resulting screenshot will even get a nice drop shadow.

• Hold down the Space bar after dragging out a selection window to move your selection rectangle around on the screen.

• Hold down Shift after dragging out a selection to constrain the selection in either horizontal or vertical orientation, depending on the direction of your drag.

• Hold down Option after dragging out a selection to expand the selection window around a center point.

Microsoft Releases Office 2004 Update

Send Article to a Friend

Microsoft Releases Office 2004 Update -- Microsoft has released yet another update to Office 2004. Version 11.2.4, a 57.5 MB download, patches a security hole in PowerPoint that could allow an attacker to overwrite your computer's memory. It also resolves a crashing bug in all Office applications involving graphics with embedded EPS data, and another that occurred with German documents that use Microsoft's German proofing tools. Two Entourage fixes complete the package: improved calendar synchronization with Exchange servers and the repair of a crash that could occur when using SSL to connect to an LDAP server.

The update is available on Microsoft's Web site as a stand-alone updater, or by using the Help > Check for Updates command in any Office application. This update incorporates all the previous Office 2004 updates, including the new Spotlight and Sync Services support in Entourage that were added in the 11.2.3 update in March. [JK]
