Tweak it your­self Here’s some fea­tures you might have missed, and ways to re­move some mi­nor nig­gles, in OS X Yosemite and iOS 8. If you want to pre­vent your iPad from re­ceiv­ing the same texts as your iPhone, tap Set­tings > Mes­sages > Mes­sage for­ward­ing on the iPhone. Turn off the switch next to your iPad in the list of de­vices there to pre­vent it re­ceiv­ing texts. If you have an ex­ter­nal mouse with a mid­dle but­ton, you can close tabs in Sa­fari by mid­dle-click­ing the tab… … but that trick won’t work on a Magic Track­pad or Magic Mouse be­cause they don’t have mid­dle-click func­tions. You can con­fig­ure ges­tures that will sim­u­late a mid­dle-click us­ing the free Mag­icPrefs util­ity, which you’ll find avail­able at mag­icprefs.com. The Markup tool­bar in Pre­view has a squig­gly icon that lets you cap­ture your sig­na­ture. Ei­ther sign with your fin­ger or a sty­lus di­rectly on your track­pad, or sign on white pa­per and hold it up to your Mac’s cam­era. You can use this sig­na­ture to sign PDF doc­u­ments. If you don’t like the Hel­vetica Neue font in Yosemite, you can revert to Lu­cida Grande us­ing the Au­toma­tor ap­pli­ca­tion at github.com/schreiber­stein/ lu­cida­grandeyosemite. This works by adding a new font file, and doesn’t ac­tu­ally change any ex­ist­ing sys­tem files.
