Apple Support has to be wonderful now because there’s hardly anywhere else to go to find out about our Macs and other Apple products.
Apple should name macOS version with literary references. Here’s the justification for macOS 10.14 Gormenghast.
2017 was never going to be easy, and Apple had a lot of accidents over its closing months. It delivered a lot of new products, and with them a lot of new problems.
Long-awaited, this new book tries to cover most of the ground that the advanced Mac user, developer, sysadmin, or support person needs to understand.
They may not cause many problems, but xattrs are both very useful and extensively used by macOS and third-party products. It’s time to discover more, and document them.
A simple and concise example of a page from the documentation which we, as a community, could readily produce for macOS. Fancy giving us a hand?
We have two options: we can carry on watching the decline in docs, and struggle more trying to solve problems, or we can organise and produce our own docs. No one else is going to do it for us. Want to help?
macOS is now largely undocumented. It’s time to do the job ourselves: what about an open collaborative project?
Is Sierra’s Apple Help on its way out? If not, how does it differ from that documented 8 years ago for Leopard – when the current docs were last revised.
So how can you add proper help to your app? Amazingly, Xcode’s Help doesn’t even mention Help. It’s time to invest in Help Crafter.
