iCloud Mail Folders Missing

I had a problem where none of my iCloud Mail folders were visible in Mail on my iMac. I did some web research, and found several suggestions to delete files and force Mail to rebuild its databases. But I found one simple, fast solution that worked perfectly: Go to System Preferences > iCloud Uncheck...

Re: Safari Reader Mode (Command-Shift-R)

You can also click the text-lines icon on the left, as seen in the screenshot below.
iPad also has a reader feature.

It's especially good to get rid of jiggly ads.

Alderwood Mall Apple Store Update

Alderwood Mall in Lynnwood, Wash. will halt operations on Feb. 25. Apple hasn't confirmed any other details beyond saying it wants to make the locations "even lovelier."
Apparently for upgrade and maybe expansion.

Music Player on Lock Screen

Occasionally, I find the music player stays on my lock screen when nothing's playing. Force quitting the relevant app only changes the player to a generic "iPhone Music" player control. Shutting down and restarting my iPhone X fixes the problem. Starting and pausing some audio does not make the play...

Re: Enthusiast iPad Pro 10.5

We recently converted a large folder of recipes (with many subfolders) to Pages (and some PDFs) and keep the folder in iCloud. That way we have recipes available in the kitchen for instant referral and, importantly, modification. Previously the recipes, accumulated over decades, were in a hodgepodge...

Re: Argg Moving Folder/Files from iCloud Failure

Coincidentally, I've been trying to get the photo ID in Merlin to download. It keeps failing. Maybe I need to try somewhere where I have high-speed WiFi. Not a blog, but all about local (ish) natural history: http://onh.eugraph.com Also, our iPad Pro (the original one) has completely replaced our Ma...

Re: Argg Moving Folder/Files from iCloud Failure

Any chance you put Downloads in iCloud? Here are two published ways to get around the fact that macOS protects the Downloads folder: https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/270227/how-to-sync-an-additional-folder-to-icloud-drive-similar-to-how-macos-sierra-doe https://www.guidingtech.com/60295/aut...

Re: Argg Moving Folder/Files from iCloud Failure

If you select iCloud Drive in your Finder window Favorites section, you can manipulate files on iCloud. Just drag to your desktop or another folder. See screenshot, but ignore the arrow's destination on the desktop. This works for me. [Later] I just noticed that you say you have your desktop on iClo...
