Welcome to the first leap day edition of TidBITS in our 26-year history! Over the weekend, Apple released an automatic update to OS X 10.11 El Capitan that disabled the Ethernet ports of many Macs — we explain how to fix Apple’s snafu. Preview is one of the Mac’s hidden gems, and this week we’re pleased to bring you an explanation of all the ways to bring images and PDFs into the app — some of which may surprise you! Last week, we asked for your opinions about Mac personal finance apps, and we can now share the results from nearly 700 readers. Finally, we have a slew of updates on the ongoing battle between Apple and the FBI. Notable software releases this week include Banktivity 5.6.6 and Simon 4.2.
