This is a hint? Standard use of the program leads the user to this feature.

Totally agree. It's like saying

"Hey, I just figured out how to make a new Sticky! Just go to the File menu and select "New Note". For advanced users, if you want to use a keystroke, trying using Command+N."

This site used to be consistently informative... now it's a waste of time.

Still Valuable

@sapridyne

This site is still useful in many ways, so you shouldn't be so harsh.

I agree that basic "hints" which merely come from someone not knowing how to use the app are not very beneficial; however, at what point does one draw the line? There are some obscure ways that programmers enable functions which seem quite clear to them as they create their apps, but to end users might be well hidden and not quite so obvious. Thanks to MacOSXHints and other places like it, we can sift through great archives of "hints" to improve our own workflows.

That's kinda like saying "Seventh-grade math used to be so informative; now it's a waste of time," and then supposing that we should stop teaching it.

Come on now. What a ridiculous comment! You and the other posters above are correct that this is a marginal "hint". However, super-users such as yourself need to remember that this site gives benefit to thousands of users much less powerful than you.

How about trying to be just a little bit more tolerant, and simply moving on if a particular hint doesn't offer you anything you don't already know?

jiclark - I fully agree with your comment.

Back in 2001 I had never used *nix before and this site gave me a lot of help and insight to that new world.

cp, mv & friends was nonsense for me at that time - while I today find myself solving problems very efficiently by EG. writing small shellscripts and using the Terminal almost as efficient as I used the Finder in the 7.6 days…
