Diereses prevent diphthongs; support diacritics awareness

--

Hi. My name is Daniel.

I'm mostly active on Ask Different, where I'm now a moderatorâ—†, 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

You could put the phone in Airplane Mode, but that would disable wireless networking also.

Actually, he question asked if anyone else encountered the bug. This answers that.

Tags are for filtering; your question shouldn't rely on information in the tags to make sense.

comment Has anyone else been able to find out why Back to my Mac isn't working in Yosemite?
Answers on ask different need to be more than a link. Plinks are okay, but the answer needs to stand on its own if the link breaks.

No. I cannot find a key combination (except the power key) that does anything.

comment How do I share sections from the notebook via e-mail in Microsoft OneNote for Mac?
You had two questions in here. This site works better when there is only one question per question. That way, it's easier for other people to find solutions if they have the same problem. I've edited out your second question, but feel free to ask it separately.

comment finer control of Preview anti-aliasing (font smoothing)?
My point is that we shouldn't have a bug tag, and this is one of the steps in the process of making it go away.

comment finer control of Preview anti-aliasing (font smoothing)?
Tags are for filtering. There are people who are interested in reading or not reading posts about Yosemite, so the Yosemite tag is helpful. No one is generically interested in bugs, or is an expert in all things bug-related, so it's not a helpful tag on the main site.

comment Apple Shellshock patch for 10.6?
Answers on Ask Different need to be more than just a link. It's okay to include a link, but please summarize or excerpt it in the answer. The idea is to make the answer stand alone.

The a Gold Master is pre-release software, and thus off-topic for this site.

It's okay to include a link in your answer, but the content of the answer needs to stand alone in case the link breaks.

comment Finding number 968 on my bill
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the phone company and not specific to Apple software or hardware.

comment How do I search Recent Calls on iPhone?
It would indeed be reasonable to assume that the default phone on an Apple page is an iPhone, but knowing the model and OS version helps people look for an answer, and also sometimes people post off-topic questions here. Similarly, you could be talking about searching for recent calls in Skype running on a Mac, or in some other program; it is better to specify, but yes, your defaults do make sense.
