MailBITS/11-Jan-93

Phew, what a week! Macworld Expo is always a trip, figuratively and literally, and this year was no exception. We'll have news from the show for the next few issues, but first, I have to clear up a few things from last week.

Lotus Number -- Leon Campbell writes, "I called the 800 number for the $49 upgrade to Lotus 1-2-3 mentioned in TidBITS-157 and the operator said she only knew about the $119 upgrade price. I read her the TidBITS piece and she put me on hold for a couple of minutes and came back with the message that the number I called could not do the $49 upgrade. She gave me another number - 800/343-5414. I called and they took care of the order very nicely.

Nisus Drag & Drop -- Thomas Robb writes, "SoloWriter 1.3, the 'Japanized' version of Nisus, has drag & drop already! I'm not sure if Ian Shortreed, the 'Japanizer,' wrote the code on his own or if Nisus gave it to him, but it's there, according to the 1.3 literature."

Compatibility Checker Comments -- Peter Galko writes, "I found that the Compatibility Checker reported parts of the 7.1 stuff Apple sent me as a beta tester of 7.1 were supposedly incompatible with 7.1! It also reported that there is a newer version of Adobe Illustrator (later than the latest). Apparently Apple used an outside contractor to collect the data, and they made a few mistakes, to say the least."
