Pages for macOS: Show Inspector and make the window grow

In Apple Pages for macOS, I would like to work with all the panels hidden and only call them when I need it.

When I call the Inspector, if I have the view to fit width, the page gets smaller (the whole window does not change the size):

If I have the width set to 100%, the panel hides some of the content of the page:

What I would like is that the panel appears on the right without changing the page. I mean, I would like the whole window grow to make space for the panel, without changing the page

Is there any way I can do that without resizing the whole window manually?

Airpods use on macOS resets double tap action

I use my apple airpods with lots of different platforms. On windows, iOS & Android everything is fine.

On macOS everything works too but it resets the double tap action to next track on both L/R (I like to have play/pause)

I have second generation airpods. Does anyone else know why this is happening and how to stop it?

FYI: I use tooth fairy on my mac to quickly connect and disconnect and am running the current 10.4.5 build of mojave.

How to delete item in Bin “… cannot be modified or deleted because it is required by MacOS”?

I’m on a 2014 MacBook Air, 10.14.5

A couple of weeks ago I did a quick sweep of my files and drives to get rid of junk, mostly old photos and videos I had accumulated that I didn’t need/want anymore. Everything deleted fine, except for one .mp4 file. This file, it seems, managed to get into my Bin, but is now stuck. I would really like to get rid of it – it was copied off an old USB drive and is about 5GB, which is a lot when you only have 10GB free space.

When I drag it anywhere, it just copies. When the bin is emptied, I get the message “….mp4 can’t be modified or deleted because it’s required by macOS”.

I’ve looked for possible solutions, including turning off System Integrity Protection and reinstalling the OS but to no avail.
Please help! Sorry if I’ve missed any details

How to use Apple Remote Desktop to upgrade lab to macOS Mojave

I have a lab of 16 iMac computers that are currently running sierra or high sierra. I would like to know if there was a command that I could use in Apple Remote Desktop (ARD) via unix that would allow me to have the operating system installer automatically run and update all the computers. I have already used ARD to copy the new file to the application folders on the iMacs, I just need to know if there is a command I can use to run the app and bypass and prompts that may come up.

Firefox Developer Edition [and others] not opening in macOS Catalina

Ok… tell me it’s not just me, when I launch Firefox Developer Edition [68.0b13] in macOS Catalina [beta 2] I get the error message that it can’t open because it’s from an unidentified developer.

So, I try to go to the file in Application and right-click open and confirm that I want to open. The base program opens but there is an updater sequence that Firefox tries to open that hits the same wall as before.

I’ve even gone to Security and Privacy and told it to open anyway. Still nothing.

Does anyone know how to overcome this and get FDE to launch or am I just screwed until Apple and Mozilla figure their stuff out?

How to delete pre-installed apps on macOS Catalina [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

  • Catalina File Structure – Cannot remove 1 answer

I used csrutil disable to turn off System Integrity Protection and deleted some unused pre-installed apps before macOS 10.14. Recently, I upgraded to macOS 10.15 Beta (19A487l) and found this way didn’t work anymore. My admin account only has Read-only access for pre-installed applications.

The /Applications in Terminal is actually /System/Volumes/USER-Data/Applications.

➜  ~ ls /Applications        Alfred              Utilities Google    Visual Studio 

I don’t have write access to /System/Applications.

➜  ~ sudo rm -rf /System/Applications/ ... rm: /System/Applications/ Read-only file system 

I also cannot change the privilege from Finder -> /System/Applications/ -> Get Info -> Sharing & Permissions, it says:

The operation can’t be completed because you don’t have the necessary permission.

I’ve read Is it possible to delete the "useless" apps pre-installed on my Mac? and chflags didn’t work either because of Read-only.

How can I access to the “real” system account or is there the other way to delete or hide those applications?

Thank you.
