I love the Drawer Feature and Don's comment to store "pinned" documents there. That is something that could replace "Yoink" or "Dropzone" for me.

Kurt Werstein

Appreciated the general remark about setting the Finder preference such that new Finder windows open to a default of your choosing, not the annoying, in my opinion, choice of "All Files".

Jose Gonzalez

What else can we do apart from open / save files with pages, numbers and keynot?. What other files are somehow applicable?.

Claude Neves
