Very useful info!

Just a couple of presentation notes.

1. Slow down and/or leave a little pause among steps. This will facilitate pausing the video while we try out the steps.

2. Especially with the fast pace, the inclusion of the command and option key commands become distracting. Maybe, just put up a (smaller) graphic and omit the verbal description.

Wow, you really re-created the original Star Wars hologram message look!

Don't miss the bonus tips clip that follows, too!
