I have reached the end of this chapter and some things just are not clicking for me.
First, at the end of the chapter, the Operation Mask, seems to work by observation of the logging, but I don’t detect any change to the cursor when using modifier keys. The cursor always stays as the “+” symbol.
Next, when dragging from the panel to the trash can on the dock, the letter does of course go away, but the trash can does not reflect anything being added to it nor is there anything in it once dropped. Is this the expected result?
Finally. I invoked the challenge back at the end of Chapter 20 (ref adding bold and italic) and left the code in place. Why is it, when dragging from the first panel to the second, the bold and/or italic does not copy over, but the shading does? I added the bolding and/or italic in the same method (-prepareAttributes) as the shading we did from the book. I realize that they are only traits attached to the font, but still they are part of the font attribute.
