Shareware author Steve Becker has released another version of InfoManager, a Mac utility that beefs up the system Clipboard, among other features. InfoManager 2.0 includes a new icon-based display as well as a self-descriptive, text-based display; the display is controlled by a new preference setting. (For more info on InfoManager see

As of version 2.0, the left margin may be set — even on the fly — when using InfoManager to print selections from an InfoManager file or from most other programs. The utility now works with both AOL 5.0 and the AOL 5.0 Web browser. You can now instantly both sort and reverse sort selections in practically any program and you can instantly double space selected text in virtually any program. Becker says that other changes in version 2.0 include the ability to:
Immediately capitalize the first letter of each word in selected text in most programs;
Print a compact list of your own InfoManager keyboard shortcuts;
Control the placement of both the time-date and URL stamps;
Eliminate the time-date stamp and the URL stamp by holding down the Option key when clicking on the “Add Selection To File” and “Printing Options” buttons (all stamps may still be controlled by using the buttons’ popup displays);
Add comments to your selections by holding down the Command key when clicking on the “Add Selection To File” and “Printing Options” buttons (and, as mentioned, stamps may still be controlled by using the buttons’ popup displays).
InfoManager now includes the option to fix a formatting bug that exists in many versions of Netscape. The Editing Tools palette now also works with Tex-Edit and Tex-Edit Plus and include both a sort and reverse sort capability. The Editing Tools Auto-position feature can be turned off; users can then drag the palette to anywhere on their Desktops.
Users may now capitalize the first letter of each word that’s on the Clipboard, as well as both sort and reverse sort, and double space, its contents.
