Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling

In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen). If you like this behavior, you can make it the default in the Appearance preference pane. For "Click in the scroll bar to:" select "Jump to here."

 
 

Freeverse Sponsoring TidBITS

Send Article to a Friend

We're pleased to welcome our newest long-term sponsor, Freeverse. They're a bit unusual in the Macintosh world because they both develop their own software and publish applications from other companies. Freeverse is probably best known for their offbeat games - the Big Bang Board Games, the Burning Monkey card games, the arcade games Airburst Extreme and Neon Tango, and more. But the company has a serious side as well, with their vector-based drawing program Lineform, the webcam software Periscope, and a kid-specific Web browser called BumperCar. Not content just to develop their own software, they also publish Felt Tip Software's Sound Studio 3, Plasq's Comic Life Deluxe Edition, Ubisoft's Heroes of Might and Magic V, and more. What's perhaps most impressive is that the company has won more Apple Design Awards than anyone else - six so far. So whether you're looking for a little light diversion or powerful tools for sound and graphics, check out the Freeverse Web site.

Thanks to Freeverse for their support of TidBITS and the Mac community!
