There’s one font that is almost universally reviled. Just the sight of it causes people to cringe in disgust. You know exactly what font I’m talking about (even if you ignore the title.) Why does everyone hate Comic Sans? Comic Sans is one of those fonts that seem to have been around forever. It’s as iconic as Times New Roman and Arial in the font world. Who created Comic Sans? Was it always as hated as it is today? Let’s learn about the ugly duckling of fonts. Who Created Comic Sans?

LibreOffice Writer bundles in a free auto-complete system, similar to the one you’re probably familiar with on your smartphone’s keyboard. But LibreOffice’s is a lot more powerful, and a lot more customizable—you can more or less tell it exactly which words you want to auto-complete, and which ones you don’t. How to Enable and Disable the AutoComplete Feature By default, the AutoComplete feature is already enabled. You can see it by typing any medium-to-long word more than once. A small word will appear above your cursor as you’re typing: whenever you see a word in this manner, you can press the Enter key and finish the rest of the word instantly. To turn this off, click the Tools menu, then hover your cursor over AutoComplete, then click “AutoComplete Options.” In this window, click the “Word Completion” tab on the far right. The first option here is “Enable word completion.” If it’s on and you want it off, remove the check mark. If it’s off and you want it on, click … [Read more...] about How to Use, Customize, or Disable AutoComplete in LibreOffice Writer
Copy and paste is an amazing convenience we take for granted, but it can be improved. Like many other platforms , Chrome OS has a clipboard manager. We’ll show you how to use it on your Chromebook. What is a clipboard manager? Well, without one, your computer remembers one copied item at a time, which is then replaced by the next thing you copy. A clipboard manager stores several copied items so that you can go back and access more than one at a time. RELATED: How to Access Your Clipboard on Android In the case of Chromebooks, the clipboard manager stores the last five items you’ve copied. That includes text, links, photos, and more. You can bring it up at any time to see the five items and paste them. The clipboard manager can be opened anywhere, but if you want to paste something, you’ll need to actually be in a text box or somewhere that can accept a pasted item. Once you’re ready to paste—or you just want to take a peek at the clipboard—simply press the … [Read more...] about How to Access the Clipboard Manager on a Chromebook
A while back we showed you how to customize your OS X Dock with themes and other kinds of changes with a small, free program. Today we want to take that a step further and create unique custom themes using that same application. If you’re not familiar already with cDock, we suggest you read our article so you know what it can do . It’s best to relocate the tiny cDock executable to somewhere like the Applications folder so it’s always there if you want to use it, plus it can automatically check for updates so you’re always using the latest version. With cDock open, go ahead and play around with it if you like. Today we want to familiarize ourselves with the custom options, so click the menu next to “Dock theme” and select “Custom” and “Apply.” Your Dock will reload plain white and semi-transparent (50%).
