    It's not true that it's the first time ever for selected screen recording.
    QuickTime Player has done that for some time now:

    Mojave also seems to have deprecated Back To My Mac in iCloud settings—perhaps because it has been a real dog on 10.13.x!

    Great.  What’s the system requirements?  Did it still support Macs with Core 2 Duo processors?

    Edit: just saw the list, nevermind.
    Where's the list?

    Huh, interesting! Maybe they think the way to do it these days is not to RDP back to your home computer but just store anything you might want to work on remotely in the cloud, and work on it using the equivalent mobile app.

    This might sound small, but you know what I’d like to see? The ability to copy/paste a few different text fields (e.g., “Copy 1/Paste 1”, “Copy 2/Paste 2”). 
    How would that work?

    Very simply - and you can do it now, if you want.

    copy'em paste or others... up to you.
    I use Copy'em Paste. I thought they meant something more complicated with regard to multiple fields simultaneously or something, it wasn't very clear.

    What! Is it gone completely? I sure hope it's not going away, I use it all the time.

    That doesn't make any sense. I would assume most people screen share into their home computer to administrate it in some way, perform some task on your home server, so forth. Not to mention BTMM includes file sharing access.

    The whole point was this is now in the QuickLook feature, no need to launch QuickTime as was stated at the presentation.

    Nah, a *real* admin would use ssh :smile:

    Did Apple finally add the 15 sec forward & backward buttons in Mac QuickTime Player like in iOS?!?!

    Will be nice to finally move my Mac Mini with Fusion Drive up to the current OS.  Wonder what the hold up was?
    Probably because it would be prolonging the life of older hardware, and they wanted you to upgrade, hence the cut of many older Macs for 10.14...

    The GUI still does not allow you find badly installed apps like those hackers seem to javascript land mine into systems :/   The command line access is still required to get rid of those.

    You know what I refer to - those that run on your dock but are not in the applications folder...

    ...  Still expect lots of support calls about that...

    I think JamesCat was making the point surrounding the statement in the video, “…For the first time ever, record a section of the screen…." That statement is clearly not true. Yes, with the Mojave, that will be available in the screen capture HUD, but the capturing a portion of the screen as a video capture has existed before in Quicktime. The above quote seemed to me to be a global quote. Check it yourself; the screen capture section starts at about 2:20.

    Yes, after the screen capture there is an opportunity for a quick edit, but that works from anywhere and not just within Quicklook. That feature, I must say, is new, cool and welcomed.

    It really depends on what you need to do. I'm an ssh expert but it is a little difficult to work on desktop publishing files from the command line.

    You know what I mean. :) Like, I have a media/file server at home, and sometimes I need to screen share in and fix something, set something to download/install/whatever, interact with a GUI app, things that can't be done from a command line.

    Can anyone tell me if in Quicklook you can highlight and copy text from a PDF or document that can be pasted in another document? This would make my work life incredibly better

    Can someone running the beta check QuickTime Player and see if it's been updated from v10.4?

    If you are talking about a Screenshot that appears in the lower right, then when you double click it is simply a PNG that immediately has Markup enabled but it's an image so no text to copy.  If you Quicklook on an already existing PDF then you as now open in Preview from the button at the top right of the Quicklook.  The ability to copy elements from that PDF, as now, entirely depends upon how the PDF was made.

    You can create a custom Quick Action that'll automatically extract text from a PDF file into a text file. The Quick Look button will show up in the Finder Preview Pane.

    Thanks! Any sign of a return of any editing features omitted since QT7?
