El Capitan

Split View: Are You Using It?

Use El Capitan’s Split View to Work in Side-by-Side Windows

Do you get tired of switching between screens?  Are you ready to improve productivity?  El Capitan’s new Split View makes it easier than ever to work in two window–or two apps–side by side. To invoke it, click and hold the green zoom button at the upper-left corner of any window. The window shrinks, and the left half of your screen fades to blue. Drag it the to the right or left and then drop it; the other half of the screen shows all other open windows in Mission Control. Select one, and it fills the second half of your screen. If you don’t want a 50-50 split, drag the black divider bar between the windows to adjust the proportions. To leave Split View, move your pointer to the top of the screen to reveal the menu bar and then click the green zoom button.

Safari Reader Fonts

What do you spend the most amount of time doing on your Mac or iPhone? The real answer might be play games, text, Instagram, Facebook, or Pinterest, but let's pretend that it's surf the web.  You might even find yourself reading blogs like this one, or catching up on the news. And because you spend so much time on the internet reading, you might like the Safari Reader Fonts option. If you're not familiar with Reader in Safari, it's allows you to view news stories and other articles in a layout that’s optimized for easy reading. Reader lets you focus on the text without being distracted by ads. Reader is available where there is a 4 line icon on the left side of the search bar.

And now you can customize your view by selecting your font size and style, and choose Sepia and Night themes.  Simply select "Reader" and then select the "AA" on the right side of the search bar.
