    Hello,

    My OS is in French.

    1) I open Spotlight and converted any currency to ARS (Argentinean peso), but Spotlight doesn't recognise this currency. It doesn't recognise AR, ARS, $AR, $ARS, Argentinean peso, peso argentin, etc.

    2) In Pages and any applications, when I pressed Ctrl + More to increase the letter size, it aligned the text to center.

    I switched OS X's language to English:

    1) It isn't solved yet either. Spotlight doesn't recognise really this currency.
    2) It works, it doesn't align the text to center, it only increases the letter size.

    Make that three.

    10.10.2 still hasn't solve a problem they know about, where a save window is too tall.

    (3) Open up Text Wrangler, not in full screen mode.

    Create a new text file; save it.

    The text box where you type in the name of the file is above the top of the screen.

    OOPS!

    And Four and Five

    Time Machine - backing up external drives:

    Scenario:
    1. Run Time Machine
    2. Dismount external
    3. Run Time Machine
    4. Mount External
    5. Run Time Machine

    Should work, but...
    On Run Five, for its space calculation, Time Machine ignores the prior backups of the external and uses the total used size of the drive. However, when it then does the backup it only copies a few bytes.

    Why is this important:
    If the total size of the files already backed up on the external is greater than the free space on the Time Machine drive, then old backups will be deleted to create space that is then not used :rolleyes:

    ----------

    And Five

    Though seems to have no effect over than to fill the logs with garbage:

    Scenario:
    1. Run System Preferences
    2. Choose Accessibility
    3. Press button top left with grid of dots

    Result:
    30+ pairs of messages that read:
    <date and time> com.apple.preference.universalaccess.remoteservice[1171]: CGContextDrawImages: invalid context 0x0. This is a serious error. This application, or a library it uses, is using an invalid context and is thereby contributing to an overall degradation of system stability and reliability. This notice is a courtesy: please fix this problem. It will become a fatal error in an upcoming update.
    <date and time> com.apple.preference.universalaccess.remoteservice[1171]: CGContextRestoreGState: invalid context 0x0. This is a serious error. This application, or a library it uses, is using an invalid context and is thereby contributing to an overall degradation of system stability and reliability. This notice is a courtesy: please fix this problem. It will become a fatal error in an upcoming update.

    Now either these are serious errors (unlikely) and should be fixed, or the message is rubbish
