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."

 
 

iPhoto 7.1.3 Fixes Books and Cards

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released iPhoto 7.1.3 with a one-line description, "This update addresses issues with wire-bound books and cards." The update is available via Software Update or as a standalone 16.9 MB download.

Needless to say, I recommend you download this essential update right away, even if you don't plan to print wire-bound books or cards, and even if you're not planning on using iPhoto in the near future. If these "issues" are actually psychological problems, who knows what sort of a rampage iPhoto could embark upon, although I would personally worry about the permissions of your photo thumbnails; iPhoto has long been overly possessive about those files.
