Oaky, I learned something new today. But how do you expect me to think that line spacing would lead me to any other kind of formatting? When I click on that to change line spacing I assume that "other" is something more about lines, not completely other stuff.kewms wrote:The line spacing dropdown in the Section Layout -> Formatting pane has all the same options that the Format menu does. (Click "other" down at the bottom for things like paragraph spacing.)

Apple encourages the subscription model on the App Store, with subscription software "only" having to pay 15% of the profits to Apple after the first year, as opposed to the blanket 30% for one-time-purchase apps. And many third-party store providers are trying to move in that direction, too - Paddle, who we use these days for our online store (after eSellerate disappeared), often urge us to consider the SaaS model; it’s the direction they are most interested in. It may, alas, just be a matter of time before online store providers remove other options.

(Dropbox, iCloud, etc.) rubs me the wrong way. I don't want to have to read a set of Terms and Conditions to figure out how much of my prose I still own after I upload it and what real responsibility the recipient has to keep it safe (not to mention private... ahem... Apple, I'm looking at you).

I don’t understand this statement. You appear to be suggesting that Apple has failed to keep information private?
There has not been a single Apple caused leak of customer data. The iCloud leak a while back was caused by several high profile people using the same password on multiple platforms and the passwords being compromised from one of those other platforms. Apple has stared down government agencies in maintaining customer data privacy.

This is an absolute ridiculous statement. Apple works with the Chinese government. There is no need for more evidence that they are not your friend when comes to privacy
