ExactMouse acceleration killer:
ExactMouse from Steelseries removes mouse acceleration on the Mac.
Acceleration is a a problem for me when using a mouse on any computer that requires precise pointer placement. It is not easy to disable it completely on the Mac without using some fancy terminal command.
To make it easy to disable acceleration either term-rally or permanently you can use the ExactMouse tool from Steelseries. The improvement in general mouse work are subtle but noticeable and improve the feel of high quality gaming mice.

For some reason Web Browsers such as Safari have added the ability for Web Sites to request the sending of Notifications using the OS notification system. Quite why anyone would want this on 99% of the sites is beyond me.
If you are fed up with constantly having to say no to these requests there is a way to turn off all requests in Safari, and certainly other browsers too.
To turn of the prompts go to:
Settings > Websites > Notifications
and deselect the check box at the bottom of the pane.
To layout separate Mesh items in an array pattern in Modo you use the Transform Array tool in the Layout Tab.
This works the same as the Array tool for components only in Items mode.
Recently I selected update all from the Mac Store which downloaded the latest version of OS X High Sierra. This is not an update I want or need at this time, issues abound which is enough said.
I found it tricky to remove the update from the list on the Appstore. It turns out there is a slight bug on the App Store app whereby Right Clicking in the description doesn’t always register. To reveal the hide this update it is sometime necessary to click in-between the characters, you may need to right click about a little to bring up the button.
To remove this update if you chose it mistakenly you first need to remove the downloaded package from you Application folder then right click (control click) on the description in the App Store listing and when it appears chose hide this update.
Apple in their wisdom seem to delight in us having to jump through hoops at the simplest of tasks.
After years of avoiding weapons I have just completed my first one an Assault Rifle concept of my own design. I did all the work in Modo including the concepting while I modelled this meant it took a bit. I may do some more in the future as I learned a few tricks in doing the piece.

To quickly space out items in the Item List in Modo you can use the Curve Transform Tool under the Duplicate Tab in the Model Palette F2 shortcut.
In this video William Vaughan demonstrates how to use:
This one is too easy but I never got it so:
Select the Curve in Poly mode (3 key) then hit F to flip.
Boom the curve direction is reversed, F is used to Flip the polygon faces so I would never have guessed but when you know it makes sense.
This little experimental beta command allows one to drag elements within the MODO UI for placement.
Fire it in the command line to use.
