Avoid Simple Typos
If, like me, you find yourself typing 2911 in place of 2011 entirely too often, you can have Mac OS X (either Lion or Snow Leopard) fix such typos for you automatically. Just open the Language & Text pane of System Preferences, click the Text button at the top, and then add a text substitution by clicking the + button underneath the list. It won't work everywhere (for that you'll want a utility like Smile's TextExpander), but it should work in applications like Pages and TextEdit, and in Save dialog boxes.
Focusing on the tips, techniques, and programs that help you make the most of your Mac at home.
After two years of free updates, Peter Lewis of Stairways Software has released Keyboard Maestro 7.0, a major update that adds new triggers, new actions, and themed palettes to the macro utility, along with numerous changes to the Keyboard Maestro Editor that improves ease-of use.
