#1607: TidBITS 32nd anniversary, moving from 1Password to KeePass, pasting plain text, Mail fixes anchor links, RIP Eolake

This week we mark our 32nd year of continuous publication and the loss of a longtime friend of TidBITS, Eolake Stobblehouse. In a small bit of good news, Apple has finally fixed named anchor links in the latest versions of Mail, meaning you can finally navigate in TidBITS email issues using the table of contents links. Josh Centers has two tech solution articles for you this week: methods of pasting plaintext without formatting and how to move your login credentials from 1Password to the open-source KeePass ecosystem. Notable Mac app releases this week include Pixelmator Pro 2.4.2, Lightroom Classic 11.3, Bookends 14.0.7, Fantastical 3.6.4, iMovie 10.3.2, Tinderbox 9.2.1, and Final Cut Pro 10.6.2, Compressor 4.6.1, and Motion.
