Gary, I do use command H often (learned it from another video from Macmost), but I also use different screens and leave the apps I use most open (three finger swipe to change). Is it better to hide the app or use multiple screens.
Ken: Using multiple desktops and Mission Control is a great way to work, yes.
Gary, on a slightly related topic, I notice in System Preferences you don't check the box "Ask to keep changes when closing documents" is that not a good practice to have it turned on?
nick: Neither good nor bad. Just a preference. I prefer to have it automatically save when I close the document.
