Apple’s Emoji Search Is Bad – MacStories
“Prior to macOS Sierra’s release in September 2016, emoji search for Mac was the opposite: general terms wouldn’t return any results - but if you knew the emoji name you could get it to appear 100% of the time. This is no longer the case.

“I do wonder if an internal effort to make these types of search and prediction tools better in the longer term is making them worse for users in the short term.”

DefaultKeyBinding.dict – Feedback for Airmail
(Well, this is a bit of a ding against Airmail.)
“Inputs in OSX use some emacs shortcuts by default:
“ctrl+a goes to the begining of a line
“ctrl+e goes to the end of a line
“ctrl+f and ctrl+b go back and forward one character
“ctrl+n and ctrl+p go to the next and previous line/entry

“Unfortunately there are some emacs shortcuts missing from this list. However, OSX users are able to define keybinding shortcuts in ~/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict, and these shortcuts are available in all OSX inputs. However Airmail does not seem to support these shortcuts when composing a message. Is there any way to make airmail’s compose message act like every other input in OSX?”

macos - Shortcut for toggling between different windows of same app? - Ask Different
“Note: This only works if all windows are in the same Space, not if they are spread over multiple Spaces, which includes fullscreen. To overcome this, use Cmd ⌘Tab as usual and on the icon of the application you want to switch windows in press the down arrow key (with Cmd ⌘ still pressed). Then use left/right keys to navigate to the desired window across spaces and desktops.”

Five unexpected uses for the Tab key | Macworld
“In Finder windows, in all but Column view, pressing the Tab key selects the next file alphabetically. You may not have noticed this because so many windows are already sorted alphabetically, so it seems that Tab merely selects the ‘next’ file. But if a window is sorted by something other than name—Size or Kind, for instance—you can always access the next alphabetic item by pressing Tab, with Shift-Tab selecting the previous alphabetic file.”

(2) How to Ripple Delete in Screenflow 7 - YouTube
(If you should ever need to cut a bit out of a video without creating a gap, you need a ripple delete:)
“Quick Tip: Ripple Delete In Screenflow

“Ripple Delete is used in all non-linear video editing software (NLE’s) as a productivity and timesaving technique for editing workflow.

“If you select a group of clips and press delete, there will be an empty space in the timeline.

“Ripple Delete allows you to delete the clips but fill in the empty gap by automatically sliding everything from the right over to the left.

“To Ripple Delete in Screenflow: Press the Shift Key and tap the top of the Red Playhead.

“Drag a selection over the area you want to delete and a blue highlight will indicate your selection

“Press Command + Delete on a Mac and in the selection will delete while bring the entire timeline to the right over to the left to fill the gap.”

“• ⌘E (Use Selection for Find)
“• ⌘G (Find Next)

“Together, these three key combos form a super fast means to navigate Find operations without even needing to stop off at a dialog first. Just select something, throw it on the Find clipboard with ⌘E, and start jumping to matches with ⌘G and/or ⇧⌘G.

“The real reason to learn these keys though is that they are Mac OS X standards. This isn’t just about TextMate. Any well behaved Mac program with Find should honor these same keys. Learn them once. Use them everywhere. I literally mean everywhere too, because the Find clipboard is shared between all applications.”

What is "/var/folders"?
“I can’t find any documentation about ‘/var/folders’ online, none at all. All I can find is a lot of forum and discusion boards that talk about it. So I decided to clobber what I knew and what I could find into this page. Everything discussed is Mac OS X 10.9 unless otherwise noted.

“‘/var/folders’ (or ‘/private/var/folders’) is ‘per-user temporary files and caches’. It is created and managed by Mac OS X. It first showed up in 10.5. It’s purpose is to increase security by improving permissions (rwxr-xr-x) over previous temp and cache locations (/Library/Caches and /tmp, which are both rwxrwxrwt). There is a user cache in ~/Library/Caches and the only advantage I can see for ‘/var/folders’ is to have a cache that is not in the home folder, for example, to avoid transfering data over a network when using network homes. That’s just a guess. There is also mention that the folder naming ‘randomization’ inside of ‘/var/folders’ adds security.”

"I did the noob mistake to post this as image and not with a full text post. So, here is how I did this custom set:

"1. Once I got my Pok3er I followed this amazing guide on how to customize it. I ended up creating my own version, which is slightly different.

"2. I realized Mac keys are hard to find and having it custom printed would be my best bet. So I found WASD Custom keycaps were a viable option.

"3. I created a preview using keyboard layout editor. I liked it and decided to order.

"4. Downloaded their Inkscape template, Inkscape itself and created the custom layout by adding the arrows to H,J,K,L keys, creating Pn key and moving others arround. You can download the final layout here (right click and save the file).

5. Before ordering you need input the colors correclty. I used Custom Text color #bbbbbb, black modifiers and the darkest gray available for alphanumeric."

Hazel catches a silent Adobe update red-handed – The Eclectic Light Company
“One reason that I have installed Hazel is to keep a close watch on changes in those LaunchAgents and LaunchDaemons folders which are so useful to malware. Yesterday, Hazel showed how useful it is, when it detected a silent update arranged by one of the few remaining Adobe products I have installed, Acrobat (Pro, as used to be before we went all silly and CC/DC).”

Watching folders – 1 for users – The Eclectic Light Company
“Some folders are of particular significance too: changes made to Library/LaunchAgents and LaunchDaemons folders can be early signs of malware taking up residence, for instance, and good anti-malware tools such as those from Objective-See, and Sqwarq’s DetectX can keep an eye out for you.”


“If you want to watch any folder for anything and don’t want to write your own Folder Action, then take a look at Hazel before doing anything else. If you’re still keen on scripting, you can extend it by calling your own AppleScript, JavaScript, Automator workflows, or shell scripts.”

Hazel and SearchKeyLite bring order to your documents – The Eclectic Light Company
“Having discovered that noodlesoft’s superb Hazel can perform actions on the basis of extended attribute (xattr) content, I have been experimenting with the combination of SearchKeyLite (with SearchKey) and Hazel to organise my screenshots for me.

“The first, and most tedious, task is to add suitable metadata to each of the screenshots. I did this in two phases: I set some xattrs, such as the Creator and the start of the Keywords, for all the screenshots using SearchKey first.”

iText - OCR Tool | Toolinbox
This looks okay-ish as an OCR tool—it’s especially nice that you can drag and drop an image onto its menubar icon to have its text recognized.

(Potential downside: It does terribly with code. Like marking “<“ as “<<“ and marking “=“ as “-“.)
