Support MacMost and Help Make the Website Ad-Free!

MacMost's Patreon campaign, launched in January, is now 90% of the way to the main goal. When contributions reach $1,000/month, I will remove ads from the MacMost site.

Think of all of the sites you visit every day and how so many of them are covered with annoying obtrusive ads. MacMost is already better than the majority since there are just two ads to the right and an occasional YouTube ad. But how wonderful will it be if there were no ads at all? No more obnoxious ads about belly fat, magic pills, politics, cheap airfares or Mac cleaning software you shouldn't use. I can't wait to get rid of them!

If you haven't checked out the Patreon campaign yet, you can contribute as little as $1/month. For those who want to help out with $5/month or more, I've created Club MacMost where I post extra videos, commentary and start discussions. So not only are you helping to support MacMost, but you get a little something extra as well.

You can read more about MacMost's Patreon campaign and help make an ad-free MacMost website a reality.
Add Pie Chart Leader Lines in Numbers
A new feature in Numbers is the ability to add leader lines to pie charts. This makes the charts look more professional and easier to follow. This also works with pie charts in Keynote and Pages. Watch Video...
How Was My Password Hacked?
You may be surprised to learn how most passwords are hacked. It isn't by breaking into the account that is threatened, but by stealing the password from another site entirely. This happens because many people use the same password for different sites. You can easily protect yourself against this. Watch Video...
Keynote Low Light Notes
A new feature in Keynote allows you to have your presenter notes in white text on a black background. This makes it easier to present in front of a dark room using a MacBook connected to a large screen. Watch Video...
Adding Math Equations in Pages
You can now use LaTeX and MathML to add math equations to your Pages documents. This creates a separate element that exists inside of the flow of text. You can copy and paste equations from other math apps, or type the code to create the equations on your own. This also works in Numbers and Keynote. Watch Video...
Using Night Shift on Your Mac
Night Shift is a new Sierra feature for recent Macs that shifts the colors on your screen to include less blue light. This can be useful for people using their Macs in the evening as more blue light may make it harder for some to get to sleep. Learn how to turn this feature on and off, and adjust it on your Mac.

Quick Tip: Find Next Keyboard Shortcut
If you need to find something in a document, but multiple instances of that thing exist, use the Find Next function's keyboard shortcut to quickly flip through the document. For instance, if the word "apple" is in a Pages document 73 times, you can use Command+F to find the first one, but then Command+G (Edit, Find, Find Next) to move quickly through all of them. Just hold the Command key down and press G over and over. The same works for TextEdit, but other apps may have different menu items and keyboard shortcuts. It also works in webpages in Safari.
