Daily Gleanings: Software (30 July 2019)

Freedom introduces another new Chrome extension, Limit, saying,

Ever wish you could allot yourself a time limit on distracting websites? Limit allows you to set a time limit on any site you choose. It then gently notifies you that your time is almost up, so you can wrap up. Once you’ve reached your limit, if you try to visit the limited website you’ll be directed to Freedom’s calming Green Screen. It’s simple, effective, and free!

For more information and to install, see the Chrome web store.

Logos adds additional options for the double-click shortcut, as well as now including a triple-click shortcut.

Both types of shortcut allow lookup, search, and inline search options. The double click option allows a further word selection option, and the triple click option also allows paragraph selection.

For more details, see LogosTalk’s discussion of this feature.

Reviving closed tabs in Logos

Reading time: < 1 minutes

As of v. 7.8, Logos Bible Software supports reopening closed tabs both via panel menus and keyboard shortcuts (PC: Ctrl + Shift + T, Mac: Cmd + Shift + T). Conveniently at least for PC users—and I suspect also for Mac (?), the keyboard shortcut is the same one that will revive tabs in major browsers like Google Chrome.

For additional details and a walk through of how to access this feature through the panel menu see the LogosTalk blog.

The next major release of the Zotero bibliographic management system is now available. Zotero should update automatically for most users, but anyone wanting to go ahead and get the latest version can download it from Zotero’s site to install over a prior version.
