The "App Switcher" is interesting in that "running" but "hidden" apps appear in the switcher lineup. Selecting one that does not already have its window open (app hidden) does nothing. It seems quite odd that they would include the icons in the Switcher App options when selecting them ends up doing nothing at all. It ends up not being an efficient workflow if the app you are seeing happens to be a hidden one. You end up having to relaunch the app outside of app switcher after all.
Darrell: Is an app is hidden, it brings it to the front. If the app has no open documents or other windows, that of course doesn't do much as there is nothing to show. But the app is then the frontmost app. You can then use Command+n or Command+o to get to a document. No relaunching needed.
I hope this is not too far off the subject but was wondering where you got the Alice pages from. I couldn't find the website with the picture you had, thanks.💚🍏
Tim: The image is from the original illustrations from the original book. You can find them online if you search. I've been using the text and those images in Pages demos for years as I need something where I don't need to worry about copyright.
Hard to follow for newbies. Way to fast. Maybe have some helpful videos that are very very slow for begineers. Show me where you clip, not just a quick flash. I am like the baby learning to crawl. Don't know where things are nor do I understand the lingo.
Mark: That's my "Mac Basics" series. I'm doing one or two a week.
I have yet to be clear on how to have one window (app) on the left and one on the right using 50:50 of the screen. I know there are two desktops at the top, but I am crossing wires and confused.
