I keep finding more flaky apps and such since I “upgraded” (LOL) to Mavericks, The following don't work as before with SL.
"Contacts' doesn't work like 'Address Book' did. Clicking on a name in Address Book would insert it into Mail address line. It doesn't in Contacts.
Entering a group name in Mail Address line used to insert all names in that group. Now, it requires several steps to do that.
‘Drag and Drop’ works only intermittently. Icons, pix, files, URL's, whatever. If Finder is relaunched, D & D will work once or twice, but it’s a pain having to keep relaunching Finder, and it doesn’t correct the problem permanently.
Does anyone know a way to remedy this? Where can I go to find an answer? Other users have reported the same problem in other forums, but their fixes haven’t worked on my iMac with Mavericks.
'Preview' works intermittently. Preview 'Help' shows modifier buttons and such that don't appear on my copy of Mavericks Preview. Preview ‘Help' doesn't help.
Is there an online manual or instructions for Mavericks' 'Preview' that actually addresses Mavericks' Preview? The ones I've found don't address the “new” version of Preview since "upgrading".
I'm so frustrated with Mavericks that I'm about ready to go back to a PC. Snow Leopard worked fine. I've been kicking myself for "upgrading". Upgrade? Bull crap! In my estimation, Mavericks is many steps backwards, not an upgrade. The original OS X 10.0, Cheetah, worked productively better than Mavericks. Mavericks is free, but you get what you pay for. It's probably a practical joke that Apple played on us.
Every time OS is “upgraded”, Apple removes something that worked previously. Why can’t Apple add new stuff without deleting previous utility? I have a long list of things that used to work but don’t anymore. I don’t need all the new ‘cutesy’ stuff. I just want to be able to be productive as before.
I can hardly wait to see what else doesn't work under Mavericks, so I can waste more time trying to find a fix. Fun. Fun. Fun.
If anyone knows how to correct the above problems, I’d be eternally grateful.
Sorry about venting. I won't post anymore FUBAR's at this time. I’m done ranting and raving - for now.
