Leopard transition, part 2. Here are some further things I have found from my recent switchover:
My USB modem didn’t automatically get set up during the conversion even though it was already setup in Tiger. No option to Answer Now unless Receive Faxes is on – you just have to set the ring count to a high number and use the Answer Now feature in the Menubar. Not sure if this was a problem in Tiger.
Suitcase Fusion refuses to hide on Launch, which it always has done on my system. But now I sometimes have a little trouble making it hide using the keyboard command or the menu item. Plus, I found a tech note on Extensis saying that you need to disable Font Book’s auto font activation (new in Leopard) in Font Book’s preferences for Suitcase Fusion to function properly.
Annoying delays in Mail and other apps that have been plaguing me in Tiger are gone in Leopard, huzzah! A cool new feature for Mail is that dates in messages are smart linked to iCal events, so you just hover the mouse over the date and you can click, edit and add your event to your calendar of choice. The Note feature I mentioned earlier is handy, but cutting and pasting from it to other apps is sometimes problematic. Either it doesn’t work or it tries to maintain it’s internal formatting.
I cannot seem to access my networked PC anymore. Or rather, I can see the files in the Shared Folder, but I don’t have privileges to put files into it. Errr. And I did nothing to change that. It appears that I can only connect as Guest even though I try to sign in as the owner.
