RE: OS X El Capitan Beta: Pinning Safari Tabs

Thanks for commenting, wab95! I'm pretty happy with El Cap so far, much happier than I was with Yosemite. I am having far fewer glitches on a daily basis, so good for Apple!

Dear xmattingly, Me? I have no idea what you're talking about! wink —Melissa

RE: OS X El Capitan Beta: Muting Safari Tabs

Hey wab95! Yeah, I gotta say that El Cap has been pretty awesome for me so far. I like it much more than I liked Yosemite when I first tried it out! —Melissa

RE: OS X Pages: Using Sections to Delete Document Pages

Hey geoduck! What you'd need to do afterward to make the document function with proper text flow is to remove any existing section breaks. (You can see where they are by choosing View> Show Invisibles.)

RE: OS X: Why You Need a Hard Drive Clone

That's a cool setup, furbies! Hooray for redundancy! And I'm sad for you about the slow Internet speed. If I had power over such things, I'd fix it for you. Alas, I have very little power. Of any type. wink —Melissa
