Copy Before Submitting Web Forms

Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.

Adam and Tonya Engst Share Stories about Ten Years of Take Control on MacVoices

Send Article to a Friend

In this episode of MacVoices, Adam and Tonya Engst talk with host Chuck Joiner about the past ten years of Take Control Books. But instead of rehashing the same old ground, the conversation caromed around in unusual directions, with questions about where the “Take Control” name came from, why “series” is such an important concept, how and why Take Control’s production process has evolved over time, and what it means to do professional publishing. Well worth a listen if you’re at all interested in the world of publishing.favicon follow link
