Manage Multiple ChronoSync Documents

If you have multiple ChronoSync documents and need to run your syncs or backups manually, you may find it taxing to open each ChronoSync document and execute it manually. There are two easy methods to simplify managing multiple ChronoSync documents.

  • You can add the ChronoSync documents to a Container document. A Container holds multiple ChronoSync documents and enables you to control several ChronoSync documents as if they were one document.
  • You can make use of the Scheduled Documents Manager window to collect and organize commonly used ChronoSync documents without scheduling them.

Both methods allow you to schedule or manually run your syncs and backups.

Printer-Friendly Mode Returns to TidBITS

Send Article to a Friend

Fans of the plain-vanilla method of displaying Web pages suitable for printing (or even simplified on-screen reading and PDF making) will be happy to know that we have restored our printer-friendly article formatting mode.

As regular readers know, over the last two years, we've overhauled nearly every aspect of how TidBITS is written, edited, staged, published, and composed into email issues. Somewhere along the line, we stuck a to-do note on the virtual wall saying, "Remember to bring back printer-friendly articles." (See, for instance, "Designing a Modern Web Site for TidBITS," 2007-09-10.)

At the top of every article you'll now see a Print link with a page icon next to it. Click that, and you're taken to a nearly color-free - to paraphrase Dr. Hibbert from The Simpsons, "Black is not a color" - page in which the links are referenced by number and listed neatly at the bottom. Images are also removed. As an example, try viewing this article in printer-friendly mode.

We hope we've saved a tree or two by restoring this mode for those who prefer to print articles from the Web.

[Update 13-Apr-08: We have added a control that lets readers toggle whether or not embedded images show in print mode. -Adam]
