Woah. I learned something new about Macs today. (Option dragging displays in sys prefs.)

New job is going well. I'm trying to figure out my display setup and found myself wanting to span across two displays, but mirror the MBP's display with one of the bigger displays. I could figure out mirror, or span, but not hybrid.

Then I found out: in sys prefs, option drag a display onto another display. Boom. Two are mirrored and a third is not. Apparently this has been around a long time.

Apple even included install disks.

Do you remember when you could RENT programs from a company. WORD, PAGEMAKER , FREEHAND, ETC ETC all big name programs. Copy and send back.
