Preview Weird but True!

I opened a pdf file using Preview, and copied the highlighted text, to view the hyperlink in a browser.

This is what appeared in the browser!

The link pasted normally when when I opened the file in Adobe Acrobat.

Has this ever happened yo you? Maybe something about how the text was weirdly highlighting is a hint…

Classy Computer?

I knew that Apple products had class, and some have textures, but nano-texture class? That is taking it to a whole new level.

I FOUND A MICROSOFT WORD BUG!

There are only a bajillion software developers and editors who work for Microsoft and all of them missed this!

 

Look closer:

 

Yes, it does read:

“Change the wy text wraps around the selected object”

 

This bug appears in MS Word for Mac 2011 documents, when saving files in compatibillity mode (i.e., .doc file types, not .docx).

 

You’re welcome.

Password Generator Generates Delight

I had never seen this before…the Mac’s built-in random password assistant!

There are all sorts of options for both short and long words, and some of the results are hilarious. Notice that both “fizz” and “quiff” have the number 23 after them. Hmmmm….

You can find the password assistant by going to

System Preferences…

 

Security & Privacy

Change Password…

Password Assistant (the Key icon)

Once there, choose your password type.

Memorable ones are easier to remember, obvs. Unless you choose a Length of 31-characters. Obvs.

I appreciate a password that includes references to taxidermy.
