Evidently it will not display the basic stock averages. It rejected ^DJI, DJI and other variants of the Dow Jones. For the S&P500, it rejected ^GSPC, INX and $SPX. It happily accepted individual company symbols. If you want the DJ or SP500 averages showing in your menubar, this application won't do that.

Appears nice. But a situation I encounter frequently is that I am required to include a symbol in a password, and I can choose only from a small subset of all possible symbols. No application I've found includes the option of specifying a subset of symbols from which to select. RPG allows one to EXclude a set of symbols, and that's progress, but it would be nice to specify just INcluded symbols.

Thank you Snorf!

This tool is very efficient at saving web pages, not matter how long, as pdf or other format. It's faster than the File>Print>Save as pdf browser function. It does not chop up long web pages into shorter 8.5 X 11 format pages. These pages are very handy for editing web content (say, in Acrobat) and then passing on to the webmaster, who actually makes the changes on the web site itself. I am responsible for the content of some web sites, and communicating effectively with the 'web guys' was always an issue, until now.

A useful tool would be one that highlights the cursor on the presentation screen, not just on the computer's screen. Put another way, if I'm giving a presentation using my laptop connected to a projector, and not mirroring, I want to be able to highlight the cursor on the PROJECTED image, not just on my laptop screen. No application, including this one, can perform this function. Correct me if I'm wrong. The closest to it is in PowerPoint, Pointer Options, where you can turn the cursor into a pen and highlight things on the PROJECTED image, not just the laptop screen. What is the point of highlighting things on the laptop screen? Am I going to turn it around to show the class?

Excellent cataloguing of books by a program I've used for almost five years to organize a 645 volume library. I don't know about CDs; there is no program that handles classical music very well at all, so I have designed an Excel spreadsheet for the purpose (yeah, archaic). At any rate CDs are becoming obsolete, though I believe real books never will.

I got version 2.3.6 in February at a discounted price; now I'm being asked to pony up $49.95 for the upgrade to v. 3.0. After reviewing the list of changes, that is way too much. But by the time I find out the price, the new version has deleted the first, so now I'm screwed.

Works well for what it does. It meets a reaI need and I was glad to find it. But I agree it costs way too much, so I haven't paid and just put up with the annoying box it displays when I launch Mail.

This has potential to be a real time saver, if I can just click on a reference and have the full text open up without having to manually go through my institution's ezproxy server every time. Some instructions are needed to help the user set this up, though. I tried the obvious thing in the Preferences, deleting the link to Western Libraries and substituting what I thought was my local library's link. Anyway, clicking on a reference STILL goes to Western Libraries, so I missed a trick somewhere. A little help?

The video tutorial is not helpful. It is still totally unclear how to enter a proxy address in Preferences. I guess I am unclear what a proxy address looks like and where to find it. Maybe I'm expecting too much. PubMed alone is great IF the reference is publicly available. If not, then I have to the following: (1) find reference in PubMed, then if it's not publicly available, (2) switch to my library site, (3) find the journal on its list, (4) login in to the journal with my library card number, (5) go to the journal site and (6) find the reference (after [7] switching back to PubMed to remind me of the vol and pp nos.). There HAS to be a better way, and I was hoping PubSearch was it.
