The text from the previous page (page 28) says "You can open a second window using any of these techniques." The technique listed at the top of page 29 says "Press ⌘ as you make a selection from a window's title bar menu (page 22)." However in my experience this technique does not work. A second window is not opened. Instead the existing window changes to the selection made from the window's title bar menu. Pressing the ⌘ key during this operation does not make any difference. Maybe I'm missing something or maybe I'm doing something wrong but this seems like at least a minor factual error to me. Thank you.

"In the Finder, if you prefer, you can also use the Win- dowÆArrange in Front command. To reveal it, press Option as you open the Window menu. (What used to say “Bring All to Front” changes to say “Arrange in Front.”) Mac OS X responds by cascading all open Finder windows, stack- ing them diagonally, overlap- ping them so that only their title bars are visible".

I have been reading Mac OS X Snow Leopard, The Missing Manual (Oct. 2009, First Edition) and like it very much. It is very clearly written with welcome wit. I have not finished it by any means, but I have noticed a rather large error on page 233. That page gives instructions for using Character Palette in Snow Leopard, however those instructions apply to Leopard and previous incarnations of OS X. The problems are: 1. Character Palette has been renamed Character Viewer in Snow Leopard. 2. The International preference pane no longer exists in Snow Leopard. 3. Character Viewer's icon can be added to the menu bar via the Language & Text preference pane (new in Snow Leopard) via its Input Sources tab. 4. The checkbox for Character Viewer also allows Keyboard Viewer to be accessed from the menu bar icon. 5. The default icon (for American users) no longer has an American flag and it is in black-and-white. I recently had the opportunity to assist someone at TechSurvivors.com <http://TechSurvivors.com> . That person had upgraded to Snow Leopard and was unable to find Character Palette and no wonder; it has been renamed. Anyone reading your book will likely be unable to figure it out. I hope that you will correct this in a future edition. The book is excellent and I will certainly inform you if I find any other issues.

The insert describes the choice between HFS+ and UFS filesystems in Disk Utility. But UFS disappeared from Disk Utility completely in 10.5 Leopard and is no longer supported as a file system that OS X can be installed on. That sort of makes the whole insert irrelevant — people won't ever be puzzled by what that UFS thing is, because it is no more.

The description only covers the first steps in allowing multiple users on the same machine to access a single iTunes library. After moving the library to the Shared folder and redirecting each account to the library's new location, it is necessary to go to File&#8594;Add to Library in each account to make the tracks in the library show up. In addition, if there are tracks in the library that have DRM, it is necessary for the administrator to log into the iTunes Store in each secondary account before trying to play the tracks; otherwise it becomes necessary to reauthorize the computer for each user.

Power Users Clinic

Regarding the Root Account or superuser, this book, like its predecessor for Leopard, makes reference to the Missing CD section at missingmanuals.com in order to learn how to activate the root user account. However, all the information online is still referenced to Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, where you utilize the application Directory Utility to access the root user account setup. With Snow Leopard, this is now fully incorrect as Directory Utility does not run under Snow Leopard. Enabling the root user account for Snow Leopard is now accessed via the Account pane of System Preferences, and it's a tad convoluted. Apparently Apple's software engineers made it more difficult to access so as to not allow someone to trash their entire Mac.

Index under "MobileMe"

There is a reference to "Backup app, 243" - but nothing on that page refers to Backup. (There's a mention of iDisk on p. 241, but it doesn't mention Backup.) This blind reference also occurs twice on p. 862, under "backing up" (entries for "Backup program (MobileMe)" and for "MobileMe Backup").
