DealBITS Drawing: Image Tricks Winners -- Congratulations to Paul Richards of gmail.com, Leonard R. Wines of winesland.net, Gary Wheeler of fairpoint.net, Ezra Nathan of blueyonder.co.uk, David Mackler of mac.com, and Joerg (whose username is, amusingly enough in German, ichwillgewinnen), whose entries were chosen randomly in last week's DealBITS drawing and who each received a copy of BeLight Software's Image Tricks Pro, worth $9.95. Thanks to the 510 people who entered, and keep an eye out for future DealBITS drawings! [ACE]
Avoid Long Hierarchical Menus
If you right-click (or Control-click) on some item, such as a file in the Finder, and one of the sub-menus has many options (Open With is a frequent culprit), it may take several seconds to open, even on a fast machine, which is annoying if you did not actually want that sub-menu.
The trick is to not pull the cursor through the menu, but in a curve around it, so the cursor does not touch any menu items until lower on the list where you wanted to go.
