disappearing scrollbars - MAC

I have been totally frustrated with disappearing scroll bars on my Macs since the Lion update. Found and answer and wanted to share in case someone else was in the same boat. Such a simple thing.

Answer: With OS X Lion, Apple made some interesting design decisions. The missing scroll bars is one that has many people frustrated. Sure, the scroll bars show up when you actually start scrolling. However, without them there, you might not know there's more information on the page. Fortunately, getting the scroll bars back is easy enough. Go to system preferences and click General. Find the Show Scroll Bars section. Here you can set when the scroll bars appear. You can choose to have them appear automatically depending on the input method you're using, such as a mouse or trackpad. You can set them to appear only when scrolling. In my case I selected the Always option. Now I always see the bars, just as it was before.

Looking forward to teaching my Lightroom 102 Workshop tomorrow. Cant wait to show all the students even more tips and techniques for getting the most out of your photographs with Lightroom. We will be building on what we learned in our beginning 101 class. Expanding our understanding of the various modules. Learn how to organize, develop, print and present your images like a pro! We will focus on the advanced elements of post processing so you can spend more time shooting and less time in front of your computer. By the end of the day you should understand how Lightroom works for you and how to create amazing images for print and the web!
