Expo Expectations -- Macworld Expo in Boston begins on Wednesday, 07-Aug-96, and will continue through 10-Aug-96. Adam and I will be attending, but only for two days, so we'll be doing a whirlwind tour. If you'd like to meet us, Adam will be signing the fourth edition of Internet Starter Kit for Macintosh at the Macmillan booth on Thursday, 08-Aug-96, from 11 AM to 1 PM, and I'll probably be there too (you need not buy a book in order to stop by and say hello!). MHA Event Management has put up a Web site for the show that lists all the exhibitors (though it regrettably does not provide booth information for exhibitors). It also has lots of pricing and scheduling information. Although I haven't personally downloaded it, Newton users attending the show from out of town might want to check out Brian Ogilvie's freeware, Newton-based map of the Boston T (subway). [TJE]
Spin Through Toolbar View Options
Although many people never change their toolbars from the default settings, all standard toolbars on the Mac offer six states: icon only, text only, and icon and text, with all three coming in normal and small size. You can change them by choosing View > Customize Toolbar.
But there's a shortcut that makes it easier to check out each variant. Simply Command-click the toolbar lozenge at the upper right of a window, and the toolbar switches to the next view. Click it enough times, and you cycle back to the start.
