iMessage Not Showing on Multiple Mac

Problem:

SMS texts messages are received on iPhone fine but is only forwarded to one of the Macs, regardless of the model of Mac.

I have a slick Mac Air that I take with me everywhere and a sexy iMac at home. To keep all my offline data synced, I find it easier sometimes just to restore my Mac Air to the iMac or vice versa. The restoring process is not difficult, just use the Migration Assistant with the connection to a Apple Time Machine.

I soon find out that the SMS text messages that I receive on my iPhone would only be forwarded to one of the Macs, not both. I turned off iMessage on the iPhone then enabled it again but I can only see one of the Macs displayed under the Text Message Forwarding option. For example:

text-message-forwarding

eBooks: iBooks Author or Pages

  • TextWrangler to me is equivalent to Notepad++, a text tool that recognise a lot of syntax from programming languages. I even use it to write instead of Word.

How to Enable Trackpad Dragging on OS X

Problem:

I have recently updated the OS X to Yosemite on my Mac Air. All was good except that the “double tab on the trackpad to drag an item around the screen” function stopped working. I had a look around in the System Preference but couldn’t find anything. Mainly because I didn’t know that the “double tabbing on the trackpad to drag stuff on the screen” action was actually called “Trackpad Dragging“! Else, it would be so much easier to search the Mac or the Internet for a fix. I tried to live without of it but soon the annoyance was creeping up on me. After a bit of persistent research, I found where Apple hid the option to enable “Trackpad Dragging“. The following explains How to Enable Trackpad Dragging on OS X:
