The PDF Magnifier (keyboard shortcut: `) in Preview works well, adjusting to different column widths. Don’t know why I never used it before.

@ClarkGoble I started using Time Machine with just a few folders because it kept failing for full system backups. :-(

@ClarkGoble In this case, I’m backing up 10 GB of folders onto a 64 GB drive (SD card).

@grynspan Do you mean because of layers? Or increased RAM?

@grynspan It’s becoming less necessary, at least.

@vjbridd I don’t understand why, but across various Macs and destinations it has never worked reliably for me. Fortunately I have Arq now.

No matter the drive or type type, or OS version, Time Machine always seems to get into a state where it “Couldn’t create backup directory.”

@bzigterman @nychen So did I, and it didn’t work here. :-( Thanks for the update, though.

@TomEck I don’t think so, unless you can get that PDF to be the browser’s location bar. But could click Print and “Save PDF to EagleFiler.”

But for a “whose” clause, Cocoa scripting seems to call the bulk accessor once per matching object. I added a cache, which helped.

I have a unique ID -objectSpecifier and accessor, which Cocoa scripting correctly calls for individual objects.

via Tweetbot for Mac

Would be nice if Cocoa scripting didn't ignore the specified accessor style. It’s much faster for my app to find objects by id than index.

@siegel They should just get Ive to make Radarweb true to itself.
