It’s all too easy to change the information in a Finder Alias when you’re inspecting it. Here’s how to avoid that, and a new version of Precize to help.
Diagram summarising how Finder Aliases work, including their resolution. And how to confuse QuickLook thumbnails.
There are still many outstanding from 10.14, and one going back many years.
A new version of Mojave brings some fixes, and introduces some new bugs. Here a few for starters. I’ll add more as we discover them.
It is easy to browse images and other documents in the QuickLook cache in High Sierra and earlier, but Apple has not blocked this – details here.
I was sceptical of Dark Mode, but have been trying it out for more than a week now. And for me, it works. But watch for the Flashlight Effect.
Displaying thumbnails and previews with white text on white background is a good party-trick, but quickly gets tedious.
Mojave’s first full release is looking relatively free of bugs so far. This list is updated as and when new information arrives.
Hopefully fixes a bug, and across-the-board minor improvements. Most important for those upgrading to Mojave, but useful for all users.
Some interface tweaks, and a new menubar app which puts these QuickLook cache controls within easy reach.
