comment Spotlight doesn't find the contents of at least one file
thanks for the quick look trick. Its an interesting point. Basically the thesis is that Quicklook and Spotlight use the same engine to read/understand files. Naively as a recovering developer I had hoped there was programmatic/automated way of testing the correctness. C'est la vie.

comment Spotlight doesn't find the contents of at least one file
thanks for taking the time to reply. Excel is imperfect however I returned to it finding both LibreOffice and Numbers more painful. LibreOffice (used to) Crash to often for my taste and Numbers often does things that just don't make sense to me. Finally the world tends to use xls or xlsx as the standard file format. (Since I'm not allowed carriage returns I need another comment).

Interesting copying the contents to another file worked. That begs question do I have any other corrupt files? Why did that get corrupted etc.

comment How can I change the default width of Finder columns?
FYI This broken in Mavericks as well. Holding down the option key changes all columns in the view but click on anything else in the folder and they snap back. In addition the View Options no longer has "Use As Default"

Done. Strange as it may seem I don't really notice the points. Their only value was to give me a chance to offer a bounty to give the question more attention. In that case the value came because your answer caused me to try everything again and again. Now off to get my scanner to work :-)

Interesting inspired by some of the comments I played some more. All of a sudden 2 sided printing/duplexing is working when it didn't work before. I suspect a case of PEBKAC - funny thing is I don't what changed to resolve the problem. What do about the bounty? None of the suggestions below resolved the problem.

I know what I want is possible since - Canon says in their docs: The default setting for [Print Style] for some printers that support two-sided printing is [2-sided Printing]. For information on changing the print settings to 1-sided printing, refer to change_default_Mac.pdf included with the driver download.

...stack overflow cut me off... thanks for the comment. This is exactly what I tried the first, second and third times. I even tried again just a second ago rebooting before I did anything. As you can see in !http://www.flickr.com/photos/36331075@N00/8097753322/ the printer will print but I don't have access to any of the options I bought the printer for i.e. DoubleSided etc. <br>Double Bonus I don't understand MarkDown and images yet.

comment Safari Extension to Manage Tabs?
I'm using glims now. It brings Safari closer to Chrome in my mind. However if my safari pain continues I may just jump to Chrome.
