Like everything, there are pros & cons. Every time i open a file from Explorer I hover my mouse over the files and scroll with the mouse wheel expecting the files to move, but they don’t until I actually click in that ‘pane’. I am so used to the mouse changing focus to the window that is underneath, and I grew up on BASIC & DOS.
The irony is that I have really only been a full-time OSX user with Rhino. How many years as a graphic designer on Windows with everyone else on MAC. I started using Rhino in early 2008 and discovered RhinoOSX in July 2008, while visiting my Mom, a Mac user, and using Rhino on her computer. Such is life.
I wonder if Marlin & team are going to be implementing AppleScript. Part of my workflow (new task at work) is to prep all Rhino files and send infer to company for mould & sample work. So I use Applescript to make a text file of all the Rhino file names which I then import into an Excel file. I also use it to create folders & subfolders based on Company name & batch number. Most Adobe & Microsoft Office programs can be controlled with Apple script. That would help with OSX specific tasks, maybe.
The whole export // save as difference between OSX & Windows is another can of worms. Not to mention Rhino preferences. I must admit the fact that I can move & rename open files on OSX is kind of great. Usually each rhino file has at least 3 versions, work copy, a clean copy (as in small for emailing) and a render copy (objects moved to simulate a finished design), and all in different folders as well.
