@nriley And voila. Love these KB pages that make you copy and paste a URL and then do a search, instead of just linking to the page.

@brentsimmons I keep thinking I’ve received the last one, then an hour later another comes in.

via Hibari in reply to brentsimmons

@rentzsch Did you run into regressions in NSImage, too?

via Hibari in reply to rentzsch

@IAmReynolds Sure, I’d be interested in trying that.

via Hibari in reply to IAmReynolds

I haven’t fully investigated yet, but the Dock menu Hide command doesn’t hide some of my NSPanels, perhaps related to Spaces settings.

via Hibari

@studiomondeo That changes Hide to Hide Others. I’m talking about the difference in which app windows are hidden.

via Hibari in reply to studiomondeo

Learn something new every day: the App menu > Hide command is different from the Dock menu > Hide command.

via Hibari

@_karsten_ Agreed. Confused me at first, but now that I know what it’s doing I like it.

via Hibari in reply to _karsten_

@danielpunkass @cthielen @siracusa I suppose things have improved if the greatest threat to the Mac is now Apple itself http://t.co/Ei9YieHR

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

Pleased to see that the Mac App Store review process only took 2 days this time.

@danielpunkass I’m really liking it so far. And can probably work around the few niggles using FastScripts.

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@bwebster I like the full-sized one, too, but fn/control position and static electricity made me switch to wireless.

via Echofon in reply to bwebster

Fixed certificate problems by revoking, re-creating (making sure to put "Dev Key", not my name, in the Common Name), and copying private key

via Echofon

@bwebster That's one of the reasons I switched to the Bluetooth keyboard.

via Echofon in reply to bwebster

@wbyoung Did you just generate a new one, and it worked?

via Echofon in reply to wbyoung

@fetchguy I was using my same certificate from early last year, same build script, same version of Xcode as when it worked. Trying fresh one

via Echofon in reply to fetchguy

Ah, the dreaded Mac App Store certificate errors. Time for some voodoo.

eaglefiler EagleFiler 1.5.8 improves importing, responsiveness, searching, printing, scripting, and more: http://t.co/xNnog6cv

@reitshamer I don't think I've blogged about it yet.

via Echofon in reply to reitshamer

@reitshamer That's exactly what I'm doing, except with multiple clones.

via Echofon in reply to reitshamer

@schwa Well, some important stuff just plain won't work. For example, sudo, hdiutil, probably some other interesting filesystem commands.

via Echofon in reply to schwa

@schwa Have fun with those temporary entitlements.

via Echofon in reply to schwa

@schwa As in letting the user type in a shell command? You can run files you have access to, but they're limited in the same way as your app

via Echofon in reply to schwa

@siracusa Good question. But I think iBooks is automatically worse since you can't get at the text of your highlights.

via Echofon in reply to siracusa

@qaptainqwerty That's an interesting mechanism for trials.

via Echofon in reply to qaptainqwerty

@jsnell I agree with that formulation. But I thought I saw lots of talk about how one never needs to use the multitasking bar at all.

via Echofon in reply to jsnell

No more snickering about Geniuses and quitting apps, because it really works for iBooks 2.

via Echofon

@adamengst I've done that a few times as well. It fixed other problems with textbooks. Worth one more try, I guess.

via Echofon in reply to adamengst

@adamengst I'll take your word for it. On my iPad 1, landscape mode is an inoperable linen background.

via Echofon in reply to adamengst

@PaulTopping Figured as much. Glad to see that Apple intends for it to work, though.

via Echofon in reply to PaulTopping

@adamengst iBooks textbooks are paginated for you? I just get one long scrolling view.

via Echofon in reply to adamengst

@MathType Any comments on how it works with iBooks Author? Limitations? Tips?

via Echofon in reply to MathType

@cparnot Yep, @_karsten_ pointed me to that, too. Thanks.

via Echofon in reply to cparnot

@_karsten_ It does appear in the Help now; maybe some of the help content had to be downloaded. The screenshot is actually of Pages.

via Echofon in reply to _karsten_

@_karsten_ Hmm. I wonder why searching for "equation" wasn't bringing up any hits before.

via Echofon in reply to _karsten_

I rebooted again, and now the sample iBooks works. Weird that you can't turn pages, though.

via Echofon

Interested to see the quality of the math typography. iBooks Author doesn't seem to have an equation editor…

via Echofon

@nriley I wonder if it's because I didn't buy the books, just downloaded the samples.

via Echofon in reply to nriley

@nriley I saw the download progress bars complete. Don't see any other progress bars.

via Echofon in reply to nriley

So I installed iBooks 2, but the textbooks I tried simply don't open. They just darken a little when tapped.

via Echofon

@lexfri Yup, I've pointed some customers to your article, and they said that helped. Thanks.

via Echofon in reply to lexfri

@danielpunkass Yep, I've seen a couple reports of this with my non-iCloud-using apps.

via Echofon in reply to danielpunkass

@jnouwen Yeah, I find that I'm using that recent docs bar more than regular Exposé these days. Pity that it ignores Fitts's law, though.

via Echofon in reply to jnouwen

@mattgemmell Yeah, projects don't really work for random files. I also like an "Application Windows" hot corner and LaunchBar (on BBEdit).

via Echofon in reply to mattgemmell

@mattgemmell This is one of the reasons I like projects.

via Echofon in reply to mattgemmell

BBEdit marker scripting was the missing ingredient for my reStructuredText language module. Regenerate heading marks in attachment script.

via Echofon

Seems like fewer and fewer New Yorker articles are free on the Web. Wish I could just pay for true Web access instead of print or Kindle.

via Echofon

@danielpunkass Cool. (Guess you didn't deliberate as long as Steve.)

via Echofon in reply to danielpunkass

My FogBugz "Unable to read data from the transport connection" errors getting mail from DreamHost were fixed by switching from POP to IMAP.

via Echofon

@zorn Most of my disputes turn out to be the customer not associating the charge with the product that they meant to buy.

via Echofon in reply to zorn

@marcoarment About half the disputes end up getting settled in my favor.

via Echofon in reply to marcoarment

@macgenie I'd like to know how to do that, too.

via Echofon in reply to macgenie

@jablair For me it shows up as $3.39 with free shipping or $0.27 with $2.99 shipping. Bought in 2007 for $10.68 including shipping.

via Echofon in reply to jablair

@jablair I've bought it, too, although I don't think it was $0.27 at the time…

via Echofon in reply to jablair

@schwa That happened to me yesterday. Wouldn't empty the trash, either. Restarting helped.

via Echofon in reply to schwa

@jimcorreia I'm glad I had Screen Sharing yesterday; never would have guessed that Grandma had typed her recipient in the mail server field.

via Echofon in reply to jimcorreia

@paulhagstrom He was a guest lecturer for a couple of my classes in 1998–99. May have been semi-retired already. Good-natured fellow.

via Echofon in reply to paulhagstrom

@invalidname A useful Mac App Store review. Wow.
