To benefit your enjoyment of Second Life amidst the hectic days of modern society, I’m starting a new video tutorial series: Tip of the Week. The guidelines for each tip:
- Must be relatively easy to do!
- Must be less than 5 min. in length!
- Must teach you something useful and fun!
- Is likely knowledge that’s commonly passed from Resident to Resident, but hasn’t been officially shared by Linden Lab!
Suggestions for new tips in the comments please! I can’t cover them all, but I’ll read through ’em, and but if you make video tutorials too, let me know.
So, here’s #1… ever want to turn off the default clickity-clack typing and animation and sound? Maybe it interrupts concerts or other live events you’re at (annoying!). Not satisfied with turning down the Sounds slider or using forward slashes in the chat bar (/) to hush? Watch this video to learn a better way:
I’ve also been passing this out inworld:
Also, I’d like to warmly thank the Resis who’ve been filling in info-gaps and correcting errors; while I’m a Mac user too, I found out from Montana Corleone and others that I had previously listed the wrong Mac shortcut for the Client menu — it’s Opt-Ctrl-D, not Cmd-Ctrl-D (sorry about that!). [Edit: Randall Allen also let me know that Cmd-Opt-Shift-D also works, thanks!]
What will next week’s tip be? Come back and find out!
