    LiOSn: I think I'm still going to pass. Don't see the point.

    Note that the delete key acts like a hotkey for "go back".  Under certain circumstances (I haven't quite nailed it down yet), you can lose the focus on the message field while editing and hitting delete doesn't do what you wanted it to.

    Priceless!

     

    P.S. Forgot on other cool feature: Airdrop. That is cool, it creates its own ad hoc network; however, both Macs must support it (and it's the hardware that counts as well).

    In all humility, secondhand.

     

    Thomas: it appears to be some key or key combination, maybe letters only or letter(s) and, perhaps, the space bar near the bottom of the KB. It all happens so fast, I've never been able to catch exactly what does it.

    I may try the advanced editor; but I just don't appreciate having to go through another page load to post so I usually don't - using these forums has become difficult and frustrating enough.

    Oh, I didn't explain things enough.

     

    The post's text is auto saved in both simple & advanced editing.   It's an advanced function to retrieve text after a crash!  Once you have a crash, you switch to the advanced editor.  You get the option of retrieving the text.

     

    For all the details, see:

    1. I do not know how reliable this autosave is.
    2. The folks who designed the fourm software were drunk or otherwise in some altered state.

    Clipper works with 10.6? I see a release date of 12/05. And doesn't seem to download, "Internal server error." I have a feeling it's toast.

     

    I'll send anyone who wants it.  Send me a note.  See my profile.

     

    There are other clipboard trackers. Clipper was the one with the least features.

    I think so.  There are some limitatons. 

     

    This was hashed out in:

    It's a long thread.

    Thanks Robert. Just installed Jumpcut. Couldn't be simpler to use. How did I work without something like this for so long!  Better late than never. Just goes in the Menubar and saves all the copies. Great tip.

    Glad you like it!

    Here is my other most favored application. Of course, I haven't checked these out in newer OS's. I'm a Tiger man myself.

    iKey is a front end program that simulates typing and mouse movements. I use iKey to remap the Function keys.

    "iKey is an automation utility, a program that creates shortcuts to accomplish repetitive tasks. In essence, an iKey shortcut is a little program in its own right, but you don't need to know the first thing about programming to create an iKey shortcut. All you have to do is put together three necessary parts of a shortcut: One or more commands that give the shortcut its functionality, a context in which it runs, and a launcher that defines how the shortcut is activated."
    http://www.scriptsoftware.com/ikey/



    iKey  has a little more function then the previous free version called youpi key. For many years, I used youpi key before switching to iKey.  It works fairly well for me in MAC OS 10.4 although not officially supported.  The youpi key download is hard to find & no longer here.
    http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/11485&vid=75326
    ( Send me a message for a copy of youpi  key. )


    *Examples:*

    1. I have the common programs that I use assigned to function keys. I have F4 assigned to Firefox. When I want to start FireFox, I press F4. When I want to switch to firefox, I press F4! Starting & switching to an application in Mac OS are the same thing in Mac OS.
    2. Here is an example of to assign volumn control to a function key.
      http://discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=10361085#10361085
    3. Here is my script for listing my application folder. I have it assigned to function-key 6.


      !/___sbsstatic___/migration-images/158/15869590-1.jpg


      tell application "Finder"
         open folder "Applications" of startup disk
         select Finder window 1
         set bounds of Finder window 1 to {-3, 44, 691, 545}
        
         --set position of Finder window 1 to {33, 44}
         set position of Finder window 1 to {60, 45}
         activate
      end tell


      The second portion of this script was generated in the script editor record mode. After I recorded the script and did some editing, I copy the script to ikey/youpi key.

    Thanks Robert, but I'm too lazy to learn to use those to try to shave a few seconds.  Getting Jumpcut was just about right for my abominable level of sloth.
