Use Help Menu to Find Menu Items

Today’s design applications have lengthy menus filled with options. And some of them move around with each new version. (Thanks, Adobe!) If you don’t use them every day, you can forget what’s where. 

Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard comes to the rescue with its Help menu, available in every application at the far right end of the application’s menus. Click on Help, then type part of the name of your menu item into its search field. 

The menu item containing your term will appear at the top of the list, and if you mouse over it, that menu will open and a gyrating arrow will point to the item you need. Clever!
