    I tried using the keyboard shorcut for Paste Special Value in Excel 2011, making sure I had quit out of Text Expander 2 first, and what I got was a popup of a Untitled Clipped Note. This must be a global shortcut since the same thing pops up if I enter that shortcut in other apps.

    I've got OS X 10.8.6. Any idea how I make this Excel shortcut work and remove or change the global shortcut? Thanks!

    What shortcut keys are you using? I'm not looking at Excel 2011 at the moment, but there is no such shortcut in Excel 2008.

    does anyone know a shortcut key for DELETE as my Macbook Air does not have Delete button in it.

    By using the backspace key in combination with the ‘fn’ key, you will be given access to the delete function; characters to the right of the cursor will be deleted with the combination. Instead of the ‘fn’ + backspace, it is also possible to use the combination ‘ctrl’ + d.

    The backspace has some other combinations:

    fn + backspace
    Deletes the characters to the right of the cursor.

    ⌥ option + backspace
    Deletes the first word on the left of the cursor.

    ⌘ cmd + backspace
    Delete a complete line or paragraph on the left of the cursor. It can also be used for removing files.

    You may have a specific problem with your Mac. Which model is it?

    The legacy of Steve Jobs was to make deleting anything difficult. I exported all my jpegs from iPhoto to an external HD....the next day...they were all back and no, not linked to iCloud.

    Deleting is quite simple, as already explained in this thread.

    Exporting photos doesn't remove them from iPhoto. They didn't "come back" because they never left. To remove them, you need to delete them, not export them.
