My Whole Expanse I Cannot See…

Hi, from El Capitan!

Category: Life,Opinions

So, it took me a bit, but I finally installed Mac OS X 10.11, El Capitan, and it’s really spectacular. El Capitan is basically Yosemite, but refined, polished… stable. Everything seems to run more smoothly, apps launch faster, OS-related animations are more fluid. I like the more robust Notes app, the subtle changes in Mail, Safari, and the new form of app management called, Split View. Split View is the sort of feature you didn’t know you really needed until Apple gives it to you. It allows you to work with two apps side-by-side, each occupies half the user’s display. So, you can, say, drag links and images from Safari into Notes without leaving either app. It’s really cool, I use it way more than I expected.

El Capitan feels the way OS X should feel, the dev team is redeemed.

    Nice. I still haven’t figured out how to use the split option. Lol. I’ll fig if out within the next month or so by engaging in a tug of war over my phone with my 1yr old…one of us are bound to hit something that will send it into motion!

    Hey in notes does the Format option to create a checklist, change font color or really well..ANYTHING work for you?
    I keep trying to change formatting of things but my format button in the toolbar and in the menu are greyed out…

    Joseph: The “Format” button is akin to something in page layout app, it’s not for what you’d expect. If you want to change the font, size, color, hit Command+T… that brings up the traditional “formatting palette.”

    Glad I dropped by and learned about Split View. It is cool
