Split View of one app

Al­though Ap­ple de­scribes Split View as be­ing a way to put two apps side by side with an ap­pear­ance sim­i­lar to full-screen mode, this new fea­ture doesn’t re­strict you to show­ing two dif­fer­ent apps; you can put two win­dows from the same app side by side. This is use­ful with Finder when archiv­ing con­tents from your Mac’s in­ter­nal stor­age to an­other drive, to look at two re­vi­sions of a Pages doc­u­ment to­gether, or to re­fer to a copy of a Num­bers spread­sheet to look up and type cell ref­er­ences in the mas­ter.

Ro­tate an­no­ta­tions

You have a greater de­gree of con­trol over the pre­sen­ta­tion of any an­no­ta­tions you add to im­ages or PDFs in Pre­view or us­ing the Markup tool in Mail – pro­vided your Mac has a track­pad. Se­lect all or just some of your an­no­ta­tions and then twist two fin­gers on the track­pad’s sur­face to ro­tate them through 360 de­grees. There are no shortcuts to snap to mul­ti­ples of 90 de­grees, but this should make it eas­ier for you to squeeze notes into mar­gins so they can be printed.

Air­Play from Quick­Time

HTML5 video in Sa­fari isn’t the only kind of video that can be streamed to Ap­ple TV us­ing Air­Play. This ca­pa­bil­ity is also avail­able in Quick­Time Player 10, so any video you can open in that app can be streamed over your net­work to a very large screen. With a file open in Quick­Time, look for the fa­mil­iar Air­Play icon to­wards the right-hand side of the play­back con­trols. Click it to see a list of Air­Play video re­ceivers on your net­work, then click the name of one of them to start broad­cast­ing to it.
