I acquired CopyPaste Pro 3.3 as an intended upgrade to my existing CopyPaste-X, which had shown several nuisance glitches ever since I had upgraded my Mac from OS 10.5.8 to 10.6.7. Well...

I have a large number of CP-X Clipsets, and expected an ability to import those into CP-P. The CP-Pro Online Manual claims:

'You can import clipboards from old CopyPaste-X by using the "Import Clip Sets..." command from the "Select Clip Archive" menu.'

Sounds promising. Unfortunately it is simply not true: There is no such command!

Back to CP-X.

In the original Eudora, it is possible to fully edit the contents of all mailboxes. Is this capability retained in the new versions?

While not likely to displace Safari from its role as the default browser for most Mac users, the new version 4.5 of iCab is a prime candidate as an alternate browser for some of the tasks for which Safari does not suffice.

To me, iCab's most unique feature is an outstanding Download Manager that permits downloading entire multi-page web sites including links, for offline browsing. Its capabilities include setting options for the maximal depth (default=4), maximal number of files (250), maximal "traffic" (10 MB), as well as what kinds of embedded files and links to download. None of the common browsers has anything like it; only some of the dedicated web download applications (like Blue Crab) have more.

The downloads can be saved as single Web Archives or as sets of individual files. The archives require iCab to be opened directly (a minor drawback), but they are is really Zip archives that can be un-zipped. I haven't tried to figure out what to do with the unzipped folder, nor have I tried downloading as a set of files.

Does anybody have any experience with using EazyDraw to open Canvas files, both old Canvas 5.5 and Canvas X files?

Nice, up to a point. But unfortunately, the "convert" feature of this calculator has a bad bug: I tried to do a calculation where a non-metric quantity first had to be converted to metric units, with some subsequent calculations to be performed on the metric values resulting from this conversion. The calculator contained the required conversion routine (electron volts to joules), but the final result after the subsequent calculation was obvious garbage, off by a huge factor. Trying to track down this bug, I found that all unit conversions, while showing on the display, are totally ignored in all subsequent operations; the program always uses the original pre-conversion values. This makes the program unusable for me. Yuck!

Running OS 10.5.5 on an Intel iMac, I find that Version 4.2 of Windowshade X still has Apple's TextEdit on its "Exclude List". Which is a great pity, because this is one of the applications where I used WS most often. Surprisingly, I do not find this problem on a PPC iMac running OS 10.5.5.
