I don’t often post these (but when I do, I prefer Dos…ah, never mind). Had to share a really complimentary review of the Gabriel trilogy I just saw on Amazon. Yes, it’s a bit of crowing, but I’ll take the heat. I’m flattered and humbled, and gosh darn it, proud of my editing.

Is it just me, or is the SORT CELLS function GONE from Apple Numbers 3.0 (Mavericks version)? Are they serious, removing one of the most useful functions of a friggin' spreadsheet program? I'm searching Apple support forums and everyone seems to agree it's gone. WHY??

This might be the ONE thing in history that makes me turn BACK to Microshaft. Ridiculous.

Yeah, saw some notes about Pages losing some formatting, trying to get closer to the iOS version, but that wasn't much of a deal. This one - losing sort function - is crazy.

It also appears I can no longer print a single page of a sheet (the print range window is gone). Genius.

Great story of a tragedy that culminated in a sense of closure and monumental art. Absolutely amazing.
