    Hi - Is there a way to copy custom keyboard shortcuts in macOS to another Mac? I have quite a few I've built and I'd love to copy them easily, but all I can find is that these shortcuts live in the .plist files (some are system, others are in the application's .plist file). Thanks in advance...

    Did they break the 3-finger-tap dictionary shortcut?

    For years one of my absolute favorite things about the Mac trackpad was being able to 3-finger-tap while hovering the mouse over a particular word, and then the Mac would define that word for me in a small pop-up dictionary window. It seems that after Sierra, this feature broke for me. Now it's...
