Stylin' a Word Comment Balloon

If you work with Word's Comment feature, you may find that the comment-balloon text is too small to work with, or you may just want some variety. To modify the style, choose Format > Style. From the List pop-up menu, choose All Styles. Select Balloon Text from the Style list. Modify the style as you like, and then click Apply. I like Arial Narrow, 12 point.

iMovie 7.1.1 and Front Row 2.1.2 Released

Send Article to a Friend

While the keynote address at Macworld Expo garners all the attention, Apple usually pushes out a few other updates at the same time that aren't as exciting. (The 802.11n AirPort Extreme Base Station wasn't mentioned at all last year; see "AirPort Extreme Updated," 2007-09-07.) This year, Front Row and iMovie received the silent update treatment.

According to Apple, iMovie 7.1.1 "addresses issues when publishing movies to a .Mac Web Gallery, improves overall stability, and addresses a number of other minor issues." The update is available via Software Update or as a 16 MB download.

Front Row 2.1.2 receives even less description, noting only that the update includes bug fixes and improved compatibility with iTunes (presumably to handle movie rentals). The update is also available via Software Update or as a 16.8 MB download.
