Adobe Illustrator CS5 An issue with the above is that CS5 may suddenly crash on quit, an issue that kept happening with El Capitan so follow the solutions offered by those in Adobe forums. Another thing to remember is that you may need to uninstall and reinstall if required. Illustrator CS5 may crash on quit; this problem also existed in El Capitan so try the solution offered at the Adobe forums (Illustrator CS5 crashing on exit), specifically the part about renaming Adobe Photoshop CC 2015 The Photoshop team posted a document (Photoshop and Sierra | macOS 10.12) with a few known issues about Photoshop CC 2015.5, nothing major. As new issues turn up, they may add them to the document. Photoshop users may also find some problems with the new macOS Sierra, if so the best thing to do is report it at the Photoshop Feedback site. So now let’s move on to an issue that may affect you. Dropbox. Yes if you just upgraded to macOS Sierra and your Dropbox app is playing up you are not alone. With the most recent version of the app some are experiencing strange behaviour, including error messages, confusing syncing icons and much more. To avoid all of these follow these simple steps below Update to the latest version of Dropbox Move Dropbox back to its default location *not Desktop or Documents folder* Disable iCloud notiﬁcations on your computer by opening Finder, click Applications, select iCloud > Settings and navigate to the Advanced menu. You can still use both Dropbox and iCloud to sync your files, but as Dropbox have stated using both may lead to issues like the above. Dropbox currently doesn’t support a configuration where both iCloud and Dropbox can sync the same files. You can learn more about the compatibility issues between Dropbox and iCloud at www.dropbox.com/help With the launch of the new macOS Sierra it’s time to breakdown the highlights of the new operating system. Features macOS Sierra now feature Siri Yes Siri is now fully part of the family on your desktop, and it appears she can do great things. To activate Siri, you simply use a keyboard command * Cmd + Space* or by clicking her icon on the dock then speaking your query! Your usual questions about landmarks, weather, news etc all work as normal, and you can pin results to the notification panel. The thing that has really stood out is the new trick with desktop Siri when searching files, which can be done by type, by date or by keyword. An example of how this works is if you say “Siri, find all documents which contain ‘Analysis’ you’ll find that all files from the last two weeks with that word within it are presented. Very handy indeed if you like keeping organised! Apple Pay Both macOS and iOS 10 now include Apple Pay. This allows users to make purchases on the web using Safari, this is a great alternative for Apple users who may not want to use services like PayPal. To access Apple Pay you’ll need and iPhone with touch ID or an Apple Watch, as payments need to be authenticated through the phone or watch. Apple Watch Unlock If you own an Apple Watch, you can now use your watch to unlock your Mac. Your watch will need to be running WatchOS 3. Both devices will be required to be signed into the same Apple ID. Whilst all of this sounds great, there is a fair bit of setting up to do, including a two factor authentication through a security page located in the Mac’s system settings. The Apple Watch will also need to have a passcode set. This feature appears to be long winded but once set up it works as advertised, so is well worth it. Universal Clipboard This particular feature allows users to share items directly from an iOS device to a Mac.. For example you can now copy a web link on your iPhone, then simply press paste on your Mac and it will appear there too. Both devices need to be signed into the same iCloud account using bluetooth. More features include picture-in-picture, and tabs for additional apps such as Maps which work pretty much the same as they do in Safari. You can still use both Dropbox and iCloud to sync your files, but as Dropbox have stated using both may lead to issues like the above. Dropbox currently doesn’t support a configuration where both iCloud and Dropbox can sync the same files.
