@mhenders I can resize the partitions without creating new ones by dragging in the pie chart. It's hard to see/get the desired size, though.
@mhenders Command-line or very fine mouse control.
@BryanPietrzak I don’t know. Lots of problems with just one iCloud mail account. Seem like simple setups.
@BryanPietrzak In a way, it’s good because I’m familiar with many of the issues that people run into.
@smorr Yep. Typically the customer doesn't believe plug-in is at fault, since problem is in unrelated area, but Apple support told them, so…
@BryanPietrzak Yes, but it's not just me. I get a steady stream of e-mails from customers saying it's a disaster.
@smorr Of course, that was the first thing I tested. Removing my one plug-in didn't help.
Also, Apple Mail has started flashing the unread count next to another mailbox, not just the inbox (which started with 10.11).
Now Apple Mail is mysteriously redownloading 2,436 messages from another account.
I guess Apple Mail was doing its El Capitan freakout again. Finally received a whole bunch of messages sent over the last 7 hours.
Odd that the Options disclosure toggle button for NSOpenPanel looks like a regular push button inside of a triangle or push-in with state.
@ccgus Yup, based on support e-mails 10.11 is now more Snow Leopardy than 10.10 was.
@joeldev Plus, no bugs caused by new version of Xcode/ibtool silently changing things when it compiles your xib.
@joeldev Yep: easier to reuse pieces, help from the compiler and version control, assertions at runtime, easier localization.
@mulle_nat Not that I'm aware of. Just autolayout plus lots of time.
Of course, the xibs look fine in Xcode and haven't changed recently. Another reason to move all interface stuff to code.
Getting the "Could not find image named" Console error at runtime again, from xibs that lost track of their images.
Third Apple News site is still showing the spinner weeks after adding it.
For one of my sites, Apple News has all the latest posts from last night. For another, it’s still missing a post from 8 days ago.
@ScooterComputer Hard to believe it’s the same company obsessing over the mouse click sound and making software that just plain doesn't work
And why does Disk Utility's main display tell me that the volume is connected via SATA but not that it's encrypted?
The new Disk Utility partitioning interface is infuriating. Select a partition, type number to resize it, and it adds another partition.
@alloy It did not solve my Apple TV issues. I think we need a TV update.
@mcelhearn Happens to me on multiple Macs, including with a clean system. Sometimes it does prompt, though…
Mac OS X 10.11 often isn't prompting me for a password when I connect an encrypted drive. Have to go into Disk Utility to unlock it.
@tylernol Pretty sure that it's it. Same problem with the Bonjour names.
@mbcharbonneau Mine were pretty much rock solid until last fall. Terrible since.
With new Apple TVs coming out, hoping to finally get a software update to fix the networking with ATV 2 and 3.
@danielpunkass Yup. My bug fix update has been in review for longer than it took Apple itself to ship 10.11.1.
For a week or so, I thought iCloud calendar renaming was finally working, but my calendar name just reverted again.
@morrick Not sure about the speed, but the subpixel antialiasing applies to Skim and all the other PDFKit-using apps that I've seen.
@morrick What do you use for PDFs then?
@morrick Since 10.8, I think.
@bhaskarsb AirDrop has been working pretty well for me between Mac and iOS.
@mjtsai And Preview still uses subpixel anti-aliasing even if that's turned off system-wide. :(
Preview definitely seems slower in Mac OS X 10.11, now takes a few seconds for the progressive text rendering to sharpen.
Would like to be able to force touch in Control Center to access Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, DND settings instead of toggle them.
@fpillet The width was an unexpected benefit for me as well. Now it feels natural to center the keyboard rather than the pair.
Trying to update a Radar, but idmsa.apple.com has been down all morning.
@olebegemann Yeah, really disappointed in that. I hit it every day.
@gelphman I found it very useful.
@gparker The Mail symptoms were actually on the other Mac where both updates went smoothly.
Mail forgot its list font, is redownloading GBs of mail, forgot its column/sort settings, and wants them re-set on each mailbox separately.
As with 10.11.0, the 10.11.1 update never completed for me, and I ended up rebooting after it was stuck near the end for over an hour.
@jmfd I’ve seen that, too, but it didn’t help in this case.
@siegel Hmm. I got 7.1 installed (verified by splash screen), though the Finder’s preview column still showed 7.0.1.
@siegel Every time I hit Cmd-R it would show progress, but only for a few seconds. Anyway, it finished.
@danielpunkass You set the version of Xcode in the Server app, so I think all the Bots have to use the same one.
@danielpunkass Are you using Bots now or still Jenkins?
@siegel Indeed it does. Then goes back to offering update.
@danielpunkass That's what I do on the main Mac. For my new build server (thanks) I was using the MAS version for ease.
@jdriscoll Hmm, the current app is showing a progress bar even though the Mac App Store is offering the Update button again.
Trying to update to Xcode 7.1, but after I click Update the MAS spins for a few seconds and then doesn't do anything. No error in Console.
@bdesham l was wondering about that, too. At least the data density is a lot higher now.
@dominocollege My point was that it’s *not* just a few bucks per device. That 20% is least likely to know how to deal with limited storage.
@twostraws It does that even if you don't have Live Photos enabled. :(
@twostraws Does it fix the bug where your music/podcast stops playing when you open the camera?
@morrick Are you saying that the relative pricing is different than before, and not just because of currency valuations?
@chucker Autocorrect. :(
@chucker Yep, that post wasn’t aimed at developers.
@bwebster Haven't seen that one before. I tend to get Word files or PDFs.
@owensd No, it’s been working great for me. Very convenient.
OS X Recovery is great.
Restored from a Time Machine backup, and El Capitain added Maps, iBooks, and Photos back to my Dock.
@Bagelturf It *says* it's going to make a new encrypted partition with the full size. Just doesn't do it.
Otherwise, the space for the all but one partition just disappears.
Looks like to merge encrypted partitions with Disk Utility you have to first make a merged unencrypted partition.
@notio I really think it would accrue to their long-term benefit, but it's just not a priority.
@grynspan Oh, the other file manager one is that Cocoa equivalent to FSPathReplaceObject() wasn't working for me. It's on my list to Radar.
@grynspan And now that the code is gone, I’m not likely to put it back to verify a potential fix.
@grynspan That kind of Radar is low-priority for me to file because I already had to work around it in my app.
@grynspan I actually had to stop calling FSUnmountVolume on 10.11 because it stopped working…
@grynspan Yep, although in this case it's a background thread so I don't really need async.
@grynspan Can't send Apple events until 10.11. (I haven't yet checked whether that works for my purposes.)
@grynspan If only there had been an API for reading those files years ago…
@grynspan Yes, in theory those will work. Not a drop-in replacement because they're async.
@grynspan I'm doing that, too, of course. But at one point needed to read files with only resource fork. Perhaps no longer relevant.
@grynspan The other obvious case is AppleScript…
@grynspan I don't think there are Cocoa APIs for mounting or unmounting volumes.
@grynspan Reading/writing resources for .webloc files and disk image license agreements.
@grynspan I think there may be a few cases where I need the old file system structs even if using the modern APIs. Don't recall details ATM.
@grynspan I think there were also some cases where NSRunningApplication either didn't have the info I needed or didn't work as advertised.
@grynspan Is there a Cocoa replacement for TransformProcessType()? If so, I don't think it was available for the version I’m targeting.
@grynspan Some resource manager and process manager stuff. Also file manager, but I think most or all of that could be migrated.
@marcoarment Except that it probably doesn't support all the features of the old documents.
Xcode gave me hundreds of new compiler errors, starting with NS_ASSUME_NONNULL_BEGIN not being a keyword. Fixed by restarting Mac.
@rosyna Agreed. Certainly seems like something that could work on a MacBook or iMac.
@rosyna I thought you were saying that there would be no benefit to it on the Mac. Couldn’t Apple make it secure?
@rosyna Sure, but it’s still easier/faster than typing a long password.
No MapKit for everyone, after all: mjtsai.com/blog/2015/06/2…
@dianeoforegon Working on it. Probably out tomorrow morning.
@lexfri Hmm, well it came back after restarting the Mac.
My El Capitan save panels have suddenly stopped showing the Favorites section.
@steipete One of the problems Swift doesn't address.
And, Mail in 10.11 is again showing spelled out flag color names instead of flag images.
@mjdrayton Thanks. Not looking to change, but curious about what it does differently. Do you use JIRA for customer support, too?
@mjdrayton Yep, OK/Cancel instead of Cancel/OK.
@mjdrayton What do you prefer about it?
Ah, looks like the old iMessages-go-to-Mac-but-not-iPhone bug is still there in iOS 9.
@owensd I agree, although I think there are several different propositions here. I’m not sure that fuel injection is the best analogy.
@otolithe I guess, although lots of other products are wireless but not magic.
@otolithe The old, non-Magic one was also wireless.
@jsnell Thanks for the reviews! Keyboard doesn't seem to have gesture capabilities, so does "Magic" now just mean "new"?
@etresoft No. Not seeing other bugs with the panel. In my case, there may not be a window, so a sheet doesn't make sense.
@etresoft I mean when not using NSOpenPanel as a sheet. In that case, it would have a title on 10.10 and earlier, but no longer.
@skid Thanks for clarifying so I don’t have to file a bug. Looks like should put any important text in the message or accessoryView.
Another El Capitan mystery: what happened to NSOpenPanel titles? Didn't see any change documented, but they seem to be ignored now.
@skid Thanks. That doesn't sound like it would affect initiating screen sharing, though.
Did El Capitan lose the ability to screen share with 10.6? iChat scene sharing is enabled, but the button to request access is disabled.
Doesn't seem like Apple Mail should be using proportionately spaced San Francisco numbers in its Date column.
