Re: Accommodating the new touch bar

hmm....maybe I should reassess my stance. I'm old enough to remember the experience of typewriters, so I guess it's old fashioned to think in the way I think. Maybe it's all an illusion, but mechanical keyboards have something to them in that the materiality of the word or thought being typed I thin...

Re: Accommodating the new touch bar

There's an option to hide the menu bar in system preferences, under general. Just found out about it. Also, thanks xiamenese for the shortcut. Very handy. I do hope I can get used to the MacBook pro keyboard. I guess I'll give it another go. Otherwise, it's mac mini + iPad config for me in lieu of a...

Re: Accommodating the new touch bar

Really? It's got very little travel. No, I tried the ones on the MacBook pros and they're not all that fun. Then again, when the magic keyboard vs2 came out I was not a fan; eventually, I got used to it and now I don't want to go back. But Brookter you do have a point in that it might just be my han...

Re: Accommodating the new touch bar

Briar Kit-- Why don't you just wait for the revamped mac mini? I'm sure it's in the pipeline. No touch bar. No keyboard. You can attach whatever keyboard and monitor you want. I'm debating about doing this actually, as I'm not impressed with the keyboard...very painful experience actually, I'm not s...

Re: Accommodating the new touch bar

I think having options to choose what you want overrules everything else (as mentioned).

Re: Accommodating the new touch bar

Every advancement in technology comes with its benefits and problems. I think the best option we could have for the touch bar is the option to choose what we'd like to have on the touch bar and what we don't. For those of us who want nothing, we should have that option. For those who want everything...

Accommodating the new touch bar

The new Macbook Pro's are out today. Just wondering if there are plans for Scrivener having special features for the touch bar. It would be interesting to see what you guys come up with.

Re: The latest from Apple

Yeah, I totally don't get what anyone is talking about. Are all these places, drinking pubs? Somewhere in Europe? Are you all just smelly old men, who have naught else to do but whine about the good old days on forums such as these?

Re: The latest from Apple

My suspicion is that these so called HAWs left little tiny hairs in each Samsung device thus causing all the little explosions. Who else can we blame but the HAWs?

As to the déjà vu perhaps it's something from another life.

J, what do you mean by the red lion?

Re: The latest from Apple

Aren't HAWs fundamentally responsible for the Samsung fiasco?

Why does this feel like deja vu...

Re: Anybody know why….?

When I asked this question to my Prof she was shocked because she thought everyone knew the answer and that I indeed was from some parallel universe. It's something of a given apparently in academic circles and is a question regularly asked.

Re: The latest from Apple

Maybe I'm missing something, but what's a HAW? J mentioned it. Trying to piece out this fundamentally deep and meaningful conversation.

Re: Anybody know why….?

Well considering she spent a good part of career, thinking about stuff like this, fighting tooth and nail against various committees to get her stuff published, I'd take her opinion seriously. Anyways, to further clarify, in the time of Shakespeare, people still didn't consider english to be the lan...
