Two Shortcuts for App Exposé

If you want to see all the windows for a particular app via App Exposé, there are two hidden shortcuts. For either, start by pressing Command-Tab to bring up the app switcher. Then, while still holding down the Command key, press either the 1 key or the up arrow. That puts you into App Expose mode, with all of an app's windows showing, and recent documents in a row across the bottom of the screen. Let up on the Command key, and then you can press Tab to cycle through all the running apps.

Final Cut Pro 5.1.4 Update Fixes Plug-in Issues

Send Article to a Friend

Last week's Final Cut Pro 5.1.3 Update barely had time to cool before Final Cut users discovered that it broke a number of third party plug-ins such as Conduit, Automatic Duck, and Magic Bullet Colorista. Now, Apple has released Final Cut Pro 5.1.4, which corrects issues with FxPlug plug-ins that use custom interfaces. It also fixes a bug with importing XML files with missing elements. The update is a 38 MB download and requires Final Cut Pro 5.1 or later running under Mac OS X 10.4.8.
