I’ve always wondered: how does it feel to be an #Apple #macOS #dev

You can’t isolate yourself from the ‘official’ #bug reports, the ‘unofficial’, but vocal and public grudges on Twitter, about the character / emojis palette random misbehavior since, when, 2014?

Or can you? 🤔

Each morning, you enter the magnificent ring-office of a company making ≈100 BILLION USD of income YEARLY… sit down in a super-ergonomic #office chair in front of a decked-out, all in-house, state-of-the-art #ARM hardware,

open a rather impressive suite of dev tools and languages like #Swift… and… the bug (and public outrage) persists.

The loses in functionality with each iteration (like, hide tracks by keyword?!), your users can’t listen to the audiobooks playing fine in on their fancy #AppleWatch,

the still pales in comparison to #MacOS Classic spatial awareness.

How do feel? OK? Or #TimCook’s We’re So Excited™? Or do you Think Indifferent™?

Who doesn’t like the elegant succinctness of #Excel #error messages?

“This selection is not valid.

There are several possible reasons:

• Select a paste area that will not conflict with the original copy area and paste again.

• If you are using the Create from Selection command, the row or column containing the proposed names will not be included in the definitions of the names.
• If the names you are creating are listed in a row or column, you must select more than one row or column.

• If you clicked the Data Table command, you must select a single rectangle that is more than one row high and more than one column wide.”

[ OK ]

While, in reality, it’s a “drag and drop while scrolling up through the sheet out of bounds” #UI #bug. 🤦🏻‍♂️
