Diereses prevent diphthongs; support diacritics awareness

--

Hi. My name is Daniel.

I'm mostly active on Ask Different, where I'm now a moderator◆, but I sometimes visit some other Stack Exchange sites (more to read than anything else).

I first got into computers in 1982, and learned to program on an Apple //+. Switched to Mac in 2003. I'm not a computer pro; it's just a hobby. I hope any of my questions or answers are helpful.

Questions about Ask Different moderation? Contact me at daniel.ask.different@gmail.com

Ticking, not tickling. Big difference!

comment Selective file sharing in a public coffee shop
You can share a folder by selecting it in the Finder, press <kbd>Command</kbd><kbd>I</kbd> (Or select Get Info), and check the box that says "Shared Folder". You will need to enable file sharing in System Preferences if you have not already done that.

You have several questions here. It would work better if each question were its own post. But let me try to take this on.

Any approximation of accurate is better than doing it all by hand.

comment Disable Inverted Scrolling using Mighty Mouse
Why post a picture of a wireless Mighty Mouse if yours is wired? A screenshot of your mouse System Preferences would be far more helpful.

comment What monospace font is most legible at the smallest size?
Lucinda Grande, while eminently readable, is not a monospaced font, as requested. But good choices!

Or you could follow the instructions here -- someone else has already asked and answered this question, it appears.
