    Linda,

     

    In the first week of using Lion I sent about 13 feedbacks on separate issues related to Lion. It is a joke.

     

    I think for you Lion Mail would be OK, but nothing better than Snow Leopard Mail, so not worth the upgrade.

     

    My wife and I sync mail, contacts and calendars across devices. We did it with MobileMe and it worked fine. We had to upgrade to Lion to use iCloud. It is no better than MobileMe. In fact the Calendar and Address Book come with these crazy skins that try to make them look like "real" paper and leather. I don't use paper in my real life. I have no pen in the house. I am in the digital age. I don't want my programs to look like they are from 20 years ago. I found a way to reskin them to look normal, but again, this is a work around. It is all really nuts now.

     

    Steve.

    A note for everyone on Snow Leopard's versions of Preview and TextEdit in Lion.

     

    I just discovered if you run Repair Permissions in Lion, it destroys the SL versions of these apps. Simply by changing their permissions back to where Lion thinks they should be, neither will launch. They'll also get trashed if a Lion update does anything to them.

     

    So always keep backed up Snow Leopard versions of Preview and TextEdit on hand on another drive so you can replace the ones on your main Lion drive when needed.

    Well, I switch on and upgraded an old Linux computer. I was planning to buy Aperture, but now I am trying the Lightroom 4 trial. Finally, after iOS5 I got a Galaxy S2.

    Things may change and I might still buy Apple stuff, but not with Lion and its junk.

    Even doing this my SL Preview now crashes. I don't know why. I've reinstalled the SL Preview files 5 times and it does not work. I think Apple have actually consciously tried to stop people using SL Perview on Lion. It just totally *****.

    Hmm, I'm not having any problem at all with SL's Preview or TextEdit in Lion. I've been testing both pretty heavily the past few days and both work fine (the Repair Permissions issue notwithstanding).

  • 620. Re: What happened to Save As?

    I did the same, not testing SL Preview, just using it heavily as I normally do. After about 5 days it started crashing on opening sometimes, and eventually it crashed all the time. Deleting the program and the files and reinstalling them didn't work. I just gave up and reinstalled Lion Preview, and now I duplicate all files in the Finder before opening because I fear Preview destroying their quality. I use it only when I really have to and I hate using it like this.

    I believe you are not the only one. Even with the awesome Q1 results Apple did not invert the recent trend:

    Stefano,

     

    Yes indeed you are right. I have been watching it for a while and reading comments like Apple shares will go to $1,000. The same thing happened to IBM in the 60's where it was projected to become so massive it's earnings were going to be greater than the GDP of the USA. Then people woke up and the price fell. Apple have ridden a wave of innovation, and now that wave has gone. While people in the company might innovate the champion of innovation is gone (Steve Jobs). A friend works as an architect and his company is doing a number of new international Apple stores. Apparently the glass staircases are no longer included. This is the first sign. Fundamentally the innovator is gone and bean counters and geeks have taken over the company.

    Last Off Topic (then we can return to look for autosave/versions/duplicate fixes)

     

    Warren Buffet, speaking at the annual conference of Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A) (NYSE:BRK.B) in Omaha Nebraska, has said he does not consider Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) a buy for his company.

    Stefano, Ok last Off Topic...

     

    What happens in companies is that while the company might be full of innovative people, if management does not support that innovation then the innovation dies. People keep their mouthes closed for fear of losing their jobs. People who would present a “crazy” idea (which later becomes an innovation) are reduced to silence. So while the company may be filled with the same people as before, if management has changed their thinking then an unavoidable change occurs throughout the whole company.

     

    Apple are opening a lot of new stores in smaller towns, which increase their fixed costs, right at a time when the world’s economy is slowing. Many of these smaller towns already have an Apple reseller, so their sales will not increase dramatically. Steve Jobs made sure they were cashed up, now Tim Cook wants to pay a dividend to shareholders, thus reducing their cash reserves significantly right when they need them. Watch as a giant company falls by a simple change in management focus.

     

    (I am writing an ebook about this change in Apple so I'm sorry to get so excited about this off topic discussion).

     

    Steve.

    Interesting point, Steve. I proposed the "last OT" for the other readers  

     

    I'd love to read your ebook.

    I will let you know when it is done.

    Some of you may already have run across this information. This is from the article on Mountain Lion in the June edition of MacWorld (p. 45):

     

    "For those users who don't love how Lion replaced Save As with the Duplicate command, Mountain Lion attempts to ease the pain by automatically associating the Save As keyboard shortcut (command-shift-S) with the Duplicate command. And you now have the option to rename files within the Open or Save dialog box."

    "For those users who don't love how Lion replaced Save As with the Duplicate command, Mountain Lion attempts to ease the pain by automatically associating the Save As keyboard shortcut (command-shift-S) with the Duplicate command. And you now have the option to rename files within the Open or Save dialog box."

    Hmm, how the command is invoked isn't so much the issue is that Autosave/Versions would still be doing its thing. It wouldn't matter that you pressed Command+Shift+S. The file you were first working on would still have all of the changes saved when you close it, without your permission. Save As, as we've used it for decades, leaves the original the way it was opened (or the last time you pressed Command+S while it was open) and the new file is the one to take on all of the changes.

     

    If that's correct, then Apple changed absolutely nothing, other than a keyboard shortcut for Duplicate. Whoopee.

    Right on, Kurt.  "Whoopee."

     

    That's ridiculous.

     

    I'm going to send another "feedback" message to Apple.  May I quote your first paragraph in my note?  I will also provide them with a link.

     

    Thanks.

     

    On a slightly other note:  I've heard that after Mountain Lion is released, Snow Leopard will no longer be "supported."  It will no longer get Security Updates.  Thanks, Apple.  Sticking with Snow Leopard because I can't stand Save As, Versions, Auto Save will now put me in jeopardy.

     

    (yes, I have antivirus clamxav installed at least.)
