Mac

Mostly for myself when setting up Mac.


The Original Macintosh - Anecdotes about the development of Apple's original Macintosh, and the people who made it.

Below are things to set up Mac / tools I use.

Sign PDF

https://support.apple.com/en-ca/guide/preview/fill-out-and-sign-pdf-forms-prvw35725/mac

Shortcuts

https://github.com/orta/keyboard_shortcuts

On Paste

System Preferences > Keyboard > App Shortcuts > All Applications

add "Paste and Match Style" ⌘V
add "Paste" ⌘V

Context

Sudo with your Touch ID

Add this line to /etc/pam.d/sudo:

auth       sufficient     pam_tid.so

Enable Audio Codec

For better headlphone performance.

sudo defaults write bluetoothaudiod "Enable AptX codec" -bool true
sudo defaults write bluetoothaudiod "Enable AAC codec" -bool true

Faster key response

I really cannot live without this.

defaults write -g KeyRepeat -int 2
defaults write -g InitialKeyRepeat -int 12
KeyRepeat: 120, 90, 60, 30, 12, 6, 2
InitialKeyRepeat: 120, 94, 68, 35, 25, 15
lower equals faster

Open file by editor on iTerm2

Show Hidden files

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES

Open App from 3rd-party developer

defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.security GKAutoRearm -bool NO
