Disable iMovie3 plug-ins the easy way Apps
After the tip about stopping the Ken Burns plugins in iMovie3, I thought I should let people know a more direct approach. If you click on and select File -> Get Info, in the dialog box you should see a tab marked Plugins.

Click the triangle to open this section. Simply uncheck the plugins you don't like. You can also use this tip with iPhoto, iTunes, and probably a load of others I haven't checked yet.

What could be more logical?

[Editor's note: In looking through the list, I didn't see the Ken Burns effect specifically listed, so I'm not sure you could disable it in this manner, but this is still an interesting feature. I'd known about the Languages section of Get Info, but not about the Plug-Ins section.]

I don't miss tabs like i thought i might
Authored by: Polonius19 on Feb 10, '03 12:34:26PM

FWIW, when I first started using Safari, I thought I'd never adopt it full time without the tabs I'd grown accustomed to in Chimera. But I've found that the ability to use Command-~ to cycle through open pages is more useful to me than the tabs, which never had keyboard shorcuts for cycling through them.

Now, if Apple does incorporate tabs, and does it so that I can cycle through them via keyboard shortcuts, then that would be the best of both worlds.

Just a thought.

Not sure why you replied to an iMovie tip with this tidbit, but you can
use cmd-{ and cmd-} to cycle through tabs in Chimera.

The instructions should read:

In the Finder, select iMovie or iPhoto. Press cmd-I or choose File:Get Info. In the Info window, click the triangle next to "Plug-ins" to show a list of plug-ins. You can enable/disable, add and delete plug-ins from here.
