Here’s a really odd one that seems to be related to Snow Leopard. But, there’s a twist. After installing Snow Leopard, I found I can’t upload videos to YouTube. This is not something I do often. So, I didn’t notice it until a week or more after installing Snow Leopard. This issue is true when using Safari or Firefox. However, it is only true on my iMac. And, by “my”, I literally mean the one I use. I tried it on a slightly newer iMac and my old first generation MacBook. And, YouTube uploads work fine on those two Macs. I’m not happy with the idea of rebuilding my iMac from scratch (Snow Leopard was installed as an upgrade over Leopard). But, it may come to that.
Ran into a minor but annoying glitch with the Open Source Smultron text editor after upgrading to Snow Leopard. Word wrap doesn’t work correctly after the update. Text lines are shift one character to the right hiding the first character of each line outside of the left border. Forcing the first character back inside the window causes the rightmost character to be lost. This didn’t happen when using Smultron under Leopard.
Unfortunately, the lone developer decided to stop work on it earlier this year. So, I may be looking for another lightweight text editor for the Mac soon.
I update my main Mac this past weekend to OS X 10.6 (old MacBook got updated the day Snow Leopard came out). I noticed a problem with Google Docs’ spreadsheet that I didn’t notice previously. Here’s what I did:
- Go to docs.google.com in Safari 4
- Open an existing spreadsheet
- Cut 7 rows and paste it to a new area of the same sheet
The result was an unexpected mess that pasted more rows than I cut. And, the cell formats were completely different. This problem does not happen when using the same spreadsheet in Firefox on the same Mac.
