comment Do apps placed in the background consume resources?
I had not found the similar existing question, and I agree that my question is a duplicate, but it has elicited a good and more precise answer. Is there a way to unify the questions, say by transferring the answer here to that question?

comment How to make aliases go away when main file is deleted?
Indeed, I even hope(d) in some hidden OS option, or something. It seems a somewhat natural request.

comment How do I combine two or more images to get a single pdf file?
@HMage: Yes, right. Indeed, my sheets have no text on them, so this is not much of an issue. But your remark is useful for people with a different problem.

comment How do I combine two or more images to get a single pdf file?
Yes, this is what I tried too. Perhaps I am doing something wrong, but if I start with image files, I drop them one after another in the drawer, I select all and save as a pdf file, only one file ends up being saved in the pdf file I get. (Plus "what's so difficult in this method" is slightly patronising and not terribly helpful, if I may afford an opinion.)

Sorry, I was not clear. The link is about combining pdf files, and that is fine. What if I want to combine image files, and get a pdf as my result? Have I to convert them all into pdf files beforehand?

Thanks, but this just strips fonts etc. from the file, but does not show the html source (tags etc.).

comment MacBook freezing?
Great, this seems to be exactly what happened to me. I had deleted some "Application support" files for programs I had deleted. I hope I deleted one file too many. Thanks!
