Hunting an App: Text editors

Productivity week continues….

The new battery is installed in my Macbook Pro (AND working like a champ, I must say.) I’ve expanded my iCloud subscription and all my documents are now safely parked off-site. The macOS Sierra upgrade went like a breeze (once I snapped nto focus and opened the clamshell) I found a great deal (at Amazon) on a backup hard drive to replace the on that can only be read — and it’s on the way.

And this morning, I dived back into TheCSSWorkshop online class. I’m ready to make websites!!

Thus the text editors… I’m addicted to them. I have almost half a dozen on the Mac. But pretty much only Notes on the iPad. So I’m poking around to see f I can find some tempting tools:

Some reviews:

have given me a start. Maybe I’ll try a couple….

UPDATE: I just downloaded Visual Studio for Mac (what an idea!!) — it’s open source and free. And that fits my price.

 

A New Habit or I’m Back!

So. Knitting and computer stuff and food & weight issues (of course) — I am working on some projects and I want to share some of my thoughts and progress as I work on them.

This week has been full — relocating sites from one server to another — knitting a Sweater for My Sister Julie — Dealing with a failing laptop battery — setting up this blog…

I learned that I should have given my Macbook battery more attention. I’ve calibrated it every year or so but, I should have done it four times a year or more. … Now I have a replacement battery on order….

One of my projects involves OCR Scanning and I found a fabulous program — Abbyy FineReader Pro for the Mac. Before finding this program, I spent WAY too much time editing scanned documents to correct misread words. FineReader is nearly (Maybe completely? Is that possible?) perfectly accurate.

I’ll get better about saving links to share. But this is a start 🙂
