    I did a trial of that since among the extra things it's supposed to be able to do is block "mailing list" popups, which are the scourge of the internet if you ask me. Unfortunately in the sites I...

    I don't use Pages a lot, but it's more than sufficient for my needs. As for Safari, I still use it primarily, but I utterly loathe the changes they made to how it handles extensions. All extensions...

    Alrighty, so I need to correct myself since this was largely incorrect. Normally, the Keychain password is the same password as your login password. But!... if you change your login password, the...
  4. Ooooh... nice find! It works better for myself...

    Ooooh... nice find! It works better for myself also than the Automator workflow I've used in the past. Rather than using Keyboard Maestro to assign a keyboard shortcut, you can do this natively in...
  5. Did you review the Apple support article I linked...

    Did you review the Apple support article I linked to? It gives explicit instructions on addressing the permissions issue.

    That said, I also agree with MacInWin's suggestion that the drive has...

    Ah nuts... my bad. It was Automator's Combine PDF Pages workflow I had used. I just tried it in Preview and it worked fine. You'd think this would be more consistent with Apple's own software.
  7. Try Preview again if you can on the pdfs you've...

    Try Preview again if you can on the pdfs you've used it on before. If it can still combine them without corrupting them, then the problem isn't Preview, it's the pdfs. Or perhaps Preview doesn't...

    So the update didn't cure what plagued my old MacBook Air. BUT! I was clearing out some stuff in my spare room and found the original Apple SSD that I had swapped out a year ago for an OWC SSD. It's...

    There’s a roundabout way to do this that I’ve done myself. You can use MKVToolnix to initially merge the videos together (add the first, then use the “append” option to add the others). This will...

    I’ve tried using Preview to merge PDFs together and it just doesn’t work very well. In my case, it made documents that had text that I could select and copy into what were effectively screen caps in...

    Apple has a support article detailing how to migrate a Time Machine backup to a new drive.

    El Capitan has a pair of file arrangement options: "Sort by" and "Arrange by". You'd think these were the same, but they aren't. Go to the menubar in Finder, click View, then View Options. Make sure...

    Sometimes when I wake the iMac up, the Matias won't connect and I have to toggle over to the keyboard's 2nd Bluetooth option, then back to #1 for the iMac before it starts working. I've been assuming...
  14. Hmmm... I have similar problems with my bluetooth...

    Hmmm... I have similar problems with my bluetooth keyboard (Matias). I thought maybe it started with Mojave, but it's certainly annoyingly slow to connect now on Catalina. Actually it causes me...
  15. I'm using a Logitech MX Master myself on Catalina...

    I'm using a Logitech MX Master myself on Catalina and have no issues. But I don't have it connected by Bluetooth... I'm using the Unifying Receiver. I would definitely recommend trying that. The iMac...

    DosDude has free utilities for creating a bootable installer. These will even download the installer for you direct from Apple. His Catalina one does work.

    Here’s a discussion on Apple’s site about CAC readers. It’s about an upgrade to El Capitan, but relevant here:

    Are you using any other software for use with the reader? I did a little searching and the website for PKard says they won’t be supporting Catalina. They say Catalina has native support for CAC...

    Thanks for the heads up. I’m going to try this on my 2012 MBA as a last ditch effort to see if that fixes what ails it. I started having issues with it locking up when sleeping while on Mojave and my...

    Ok, so now that I'm on my Mac, I'm trying to experiment a bit and I'm missing something completely here. When I compose an email in Mail, when I first enter a letter in the "To" field, I get...

    If you are getting a blue screen, then it is trying to boot Windows. Shut down your Mac, wait a minute, then power it on. Immediately press and hold the option key. Keep holding it until you get a...

    The Keychain has its own password separate from your login password. It certainly can be set the same, but it can be different. I think it’s separate since it can be synced to multiple Macs or...

    Apple calls it “Siri Suggestions”, but it has nothing to do with the voice assistant. It’s really a function of Spotlight. I’m not in front of my Mac, but if you look at the Spotlight preference...
