Until then, keep up with us on the TidBITS Web site and in Apple News. As for this week, Josh Centers has a tip on using the new scroll bar feature in iOS 13. Donald O’Shea joins us to explain how to take advantage of geolocation with iPhone-captured photos in the Photos app. And to wrap up the issue, Julio Ojeda-Zapata explores the Luna Display’s new Mac-to-Mac mode, which lets you use one Mac as a second screen for another Mac. DEVONthink 3.0.2, Path Finder 9.0.4, ChronoSync 4.9.6 and ChronoAgent 1.9.4, OmniOutliner Essentials and Pro 5.5.1, SpamSieve 2.9.38, and Luminar 4.
We’re taking the next email issue of TidBITS off to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, although we’ll continue to publish articles on our Web site. You can look forward to the next email issue on 9 December 2019.

You are on a tour bus in an unfamiliar city and you see something that you’d like to visit later. Take a picture of it with your iPhone, and the Places feature in the Photos app can locate it for you. With a new feature in Photos in iOS 13, you can even get directions to get back there!
AstroHQ’s Luna Display dongle can transform one Mac into a secondary display for another Mac. This is similar to what Apple’s Target Display Mode does, but that feature works only with iMacs of a certain vintage as a second display. Luna’s Mac-to-Mac Mode works with a wider range of Mac pairings, such as side-by-side MacBooks.
