So you had to drag the albums back into alphabetical order? That is one of my pet peeves with iPhoto. Albums within a folder are not automatically alphabetized. It should be an option within Preferences.

It's hard to believe this was overlooked in Photos but even Safari won't automatically alphabetized your bookmarks.

Since Photos is still in beta perhaps this will be fixed when it goes gold.

My Albums are no longer in any folder, but I created one ... just for you. As you can see in the screenshot the albums can be automatically alphabetized.

One more question, Ray.
Is text in the caption or description field preserved when you import an Aperture library to Photos?

BTW, there was a quite positive comment about Photos on Macintouch today. That's the opposite of most comments there.

I have never used Aperture, nor entered text into an iPhoto Description field.

However, it appears that all metadata from iPhoto does get migrated into the Mac Photos app. (see screenshot)
I would assume that the same would be true for an Aperture to Photos migration.

Apple made a change in Mail that has caused some people using the 10.10.3 beta grief.
If you install the beta and Mail hangs while fetching e-mail, check out this blog post:

Back to Outlook, can you automatically import your Apple Contacts, Calendar and Reminders or do you have to enter everything manually?

I would say NO.

Attached is the only Import dialog box in Outlook.

Microsoft just doesn't want to play nice with Apple. I'm not going to type in all my contacts again. This is Office for Mac and it should be easy to import contacts from the Apple Contacts app.

I bet you could export all contacts as CSV and then import from that file to Outlook. Problem solved. (Insert favorite snarky comment about Microsoft products. ;) )
