You ever been sent a document or form digitally, only to have to print it out, sign it with a pen (like a Luddite), and then have to rescan it into your PC only to email it back off to the original sender. Seems like a lot for just a signature. So, Apple has handily come up with a great solution to make sure that making your mark on any document is as easy as possible.
All you have to do is head into your PDF preview, then go to Tools, then Annotate, then Signature, and you are going to be met with two separate options. The first is to use your trackpad to draw in your signature (or your iPhone if it is connected to your Mac), or you can use your Macs camera to take a picture of your actual signature on a white background, that your Mac can then drop into documents at the click of a button!
You might not need it right away, but I promise this is an amazing feature when the time comes.
2) Set Up Your Own Keyboard Commands
We all know the classics. Command + C is copy, Command+ V is paste, Command + P is print – the list goes on, we’re all familiar. But did you know that on a MacOS you can actually create your own keyboard shortcuts to execute commands that you design yourself?
A pretty handy feature – especially if your involved in musical, video, or photographic editing and want to streamline some of the lengthy processes you use to improve the assets you are working on.
All you have to do is navigate to the system preferences menu, then to keyboard, then shortcuts, then app shortcuts. From here you can create keyboard shortcuts to open up any app you want, which is useful if you don’t want to spend ages looking through your file systems for different programs that perform different functions, and you only need a plugin for just a second!
