    CTRL, CMD, (space) brings up the emoji/symbol viewer in Pages (10.1) but there is no search bar at the top?

    Sorry. The symbol window does not necessarily open at the top of the list of symbols. I have to scroll back to the beginning and then the search box is there.

    ChrisL: You may not be “at the top.” Try scrolling inside that.

    I never knew about the Summarize option under Services! That’s the tip of the week!

    If you search all versions and find an earlier one you want but are not sure, Press the Option key to save a copy of an earlier version and keep the one you are working on.

    Thanks Gary for the great tip how to enter Emoji. It works only one time. If I want to add multiple Emoji is there a way to do it? Please let me know. Thanks.

    Lali: Not sure what you mean. You can use it as much as you want.

    GREAT stuff Gary, After selecting dictate it works for 30 – 40 seconds and then shuts off. Is there a way to keep it in place longer? When I hesitate to think of how to say something it shuts down in time for me to loose my train of thought..

    Bill: Instead of using the simple method of dictation, switch to the enhanced method. See https://macmost.com/learn-how-to-use-dictation-on-your-mac.html
