Where to get Safari extensionsmactipster

Mon, 08 Nov 2010 17:07:10 +0000

Of course, there’s Apple’s Extensions Gallery, easily reachable from within Safari by opening Safari Preferences, going to the Extensions pane, and clicking Get Extensions. But for extensions not in the Gallery, try these sites for links to developers: http://safariextensions.org/ http://safariextensions.tumblr.com/ http://www.macosxtips.co.uk/extensions/ http://www.pimpmysafari.com/category/extensions   Advertisements(image)

Safari 5: Swapping tab sets in a windowmactipstersafariTabCmd

Sun, 07 Nov 2010 22:25:55 +0000

I recently finished my latest ebook, Take Control of Safari 5. Of course, “finished” is a relative term – it goes to an editor or two, and comes back with comments. And it’s a good thing there was a delay of a week or two between when I finished and when it was finished, because […](image)

A dozen things wrong with Word 2011’s Find/Replace functionmactipsterWordSearchFieldWordCrowdedMenu

Fri, 05 Nov 2010 15:58:47 +0000

I’m searching for something nice to say about Word 2011’s Find/Replace approach, but I’m too overwhelmed by what’s wrong with it to highlight the one thing I do like. It takes umpteen keystrokes to just get to the old Find and Replace dialog (and do I mean old!) which is not only where I need […](image)

Is this the only way to organize Safari’s extensions?mactipster

Wed, 13 Oct 2010 23:32:03 +0000

Well, it’s the only one I can figure out. It’s driving me crazy that I can’t quickly scan the list in Safari’s Extensions preference pane because the extensions are listed in the order they were installed – which is to say, in no useful order at all. I certainly don’t do this every time I […](image)

Finder smart folders and Word documentsmactipsterWordSearchCriteria

Wed, 06 Oct 2010 18:34:56 +0000

“Smart folders” are an under-utilized feature of Mac OS X. You define search criteria and make a smart folder that forever (sort of) after will display all the items that match those criteria (the items aren’t moved into the folder—the “folder” is just a list. But the apparent lack of enthusiasm for smart folders may just be […](image)

The new font in Office 2011 (and what’s wrong)mactipsterGabriola1Gabriola2Gabriola3

Tue, 28 Sep 2010 21:40:05 +0000

I won’t keep you in suspense: there’s nothing wrong with the font. It’s just that Word can’t handle it. Okay, now a little suspense in regard to the problem… The font is one that comes with Windows 7, Gabriola.ttf. It’s a script font that starts out pretty – and usable at smaller sizes for short […](image)

Safari: What’s wrong with this menu?mactipsterSafariViewMenu

Wed, 15 Sep 2010 17:18:03 +0000

The Cupertino Interface Police were looking the other way when Safari’s menus were built. Take a look at the View menu’s first command: Hide Toolbar. More specifically, look at the keyboard shortcut for it: Command-|. What’s wrong with this? Hint: Look at the shortcut for Zoom In: Command-+. Okay, time’s up. Let’s start with the […](image)

Finally, a use for the Help menu’s search field!mactipsterHelpMenuSearch1HelpMenuSearch2

Sun, 12 Sep 2010 00:17:34 +0000

I find the search field in the Mac’s Help menu generally useless: it searches only the menu commands in the current application for a match—and a best-guess as to which menu the desired command might be in, followed by a quick scan of the commands in it, is an easy way to find a command […](image)

Me, Mac/iPad, and Medicinemactipster

Thu, 19 Aug 2010 13:49:01 +0000

This is what being a Mac professional means in your personal life: Two weeks ago, as part of my ongoing medical adventures, I was waiting in my very own private walled-not-curtained pre-op cubicle for what, given my history, was a minor procedure. The doctor (one of my two very favorites) walks briskly down the hallway, […](image)

Get Address Book phone numbers in the Spotlight menumactipsterSptAddrBook

Thu, 11 Feb 2010 15:13:35 +0000

Spotlight in your menu bar hooks nicely into Address Book. Type a name in the search field, and the contact(s) will show up in the Spotlight menu. Point to the contact, hover for a few seconds, and get all the phone numbers for that contact in a help tag, so you don’t have to open […](image)
