Just saw a plug for "Evernote" on one of Apple's web pages. Looks potentially interesting, and free -- but what's the catch? (in the spirit of "no such thing as a free lunch"). Does your content get presented back to you with added advertisements? Your email address sold to spammers? Who's giving this away? And why?
Command + Shift + X is not working for me. (In TextEdit, MacBook black 15", Snow Leopard 10.6.8) Also can't follow your instruction "View, Toolbars, Customize toolbars, Keyboard, (then select either Format style or strikethrough- under "commands" There's no View in TextEdit or Font Panel. Tried Settings, Keyboard but no ability there to customise appearanace features like Bold, Italic, Strikethrough. Sorry to be dense ! Could you step through it in more detail ?
