Looks like builds after r89238 will enable resizable textareas with this default command in the terminal:
defaults write com.omnigroup.OmniWeb5 ShowResizableTextAreas -bool true
interesting. i would rather use the “zoomed” text window myself.
Automator is a powerful technology for building custom workflows. But sometimes you need functionality that the existing actions don’t provide—functionality that could be easily accomplished using the shell with a scripting language like Perl, Python, or Ruby. With Custom Shell Script actions, script developers can quickly turn their work into Automator actions.
macosxhints.com – Add emacs key bindings to Microsoft Word
Emacs users get addicted to the standard key bindings (which are also available in Cocoa apps). Microsoft Word doesn’t support these by default, but you can add them through customization. Here are the ones I find most useful:
To set these up in Word, go to Tools » Customize » Customize Keyboard. From the Categories panel, choose All commands. Find each of the entries in the above list, select the Press new shortcut key box for each, then type the shortcut as shown above and click Assign. (Word will tell you if any of the shortcuts are currently assigned to other commands.)
The Terminal application in Panther supports the x-man-page URL type. That is, the following URL, when used with Safari or the open command, will open a Terminal window with the ls man page displayed:
What a difference a little conf file makes!So, we here at AFP548.com are by no means DBAs in any way shape or form. We cross our fingers every time we upgrade the server that MySQL works when it comes up. We’re not sure what we’d do if it didn’t.
I tried it. First impression is that dynamic pages on the blogs *are* faster.
In this article we’ll take a look at the AutoCRUD for PHP library, which is a database abstraction library specifically for MySQL. I’ll take you through all major features of this library, and demonstrate everything with examples.
For example, if I want to add a picture to a TextEdit RTFD document, I had to launch iPhoto, chose the picture, and drag it to the document. Waiting for iPhoto to launch can be long if you have a lot of photos.
But there is a way to get around this, using an Automator action.
First, download the plugin. Unzip the file, and place the entire wp-admin-tiger folder into the /wp-content/plugins directory. For clarification, the plugin file ‘wp-admin-tiger.php’ and plugin file directory ‘wp-admin-tiger-files’ should be located in the /wp-content/plugins/wp-admin-tiger/ folder. After the files are in place, browse to the Plugins page in your WordPress Administration area, and activate the plugin. The administration design should immediately change. To revert back to the original design, just deactivate the plugin. No core files are (nor should be) modified to install this plugin.
While you’re sorting through folders of images or PDFs, why not also add keywords to them so they’re easier to find with Spotlight later? Preview makes this easy. Drag the images or PDF files you’d like to tag into Preview and then select Tools: Get Info (or just press Command-I). In the Document Info window, click on the Keywords tab. Click on Add and then enter the keyword you’d like to use. If you have a group of files open, you can then simply click on the next image or PDF in the drawer. The window will change to reflect the selected file’s information. When you’re done, save the files. The next time you perform a Spotlight search, you’ll be able to use the keywords to home in on your target.—RG
