InfoManager, the information management system for the Mac, has been updated to version 2.1. It now works with Netscape 6.x (InfoManager has always worked with earlier versions of Netscape) and includes enhanced support for AOL 5.0 and the AOL 5.0 Web browser, according to developer Stephen Becker. Plus, several small enhancements have been added to InfoManager’s code, he added.
InfoManager is a Mac utility that beefs up the system Clipboard. It can be used to create and organize notes and other information, and simplify file and folder generation and organization, Becker said. It includes tools for on-the-fly editing of text in just about all applications, tools for both finding the text within files and finding text and clippings files themselves on any mounted volume, and still more tools for editing and printing the contents of clippings files.
The WebPrint Plus engine includes on-the-fly customization and formatting features such as adding notes to printed and saved text selections, adding time-date stamps to printed and saved text selections, and adding a URL stamp to selections that are printed or saved when using a Web browser. The engine also speeds up printing and helps eliminate browser printing problems, Becker said.
