Due to what appears to be a general consensus that the touchbar is nothing more than a useless gimmick, I thought it'd be nice to start a thread that counters the pervasive negativity that is quite ez to find on this board. Please refrain from engaging in debate, assertions of uselessness, imposed cost, or opinions of what constitutes a 'real' professional. Just the finer points, please. -- I'll start w/two features that are incredibly handy for me. When authoring a draft, I sure like that I can add bullets or other construct modifiers in my docs with just the tap of an icon at the ready as opposed to having the stupid format sidebar that appears in Pages. I like Pages and that's Mac's native drafting app..so thanks Apple, it's handy. In Calendar, another native Apple app - I really, really find the option to scroll through yrs, mos, et al along the touchbar a HUGE convenience. Thanks for optimizing your hardware to dovetail into the functionality of your native calendar program, Apple. This one's especially handy for my use. Please share how you use the tb and how it helps your productivity.
