Как настроить сенсорную панель Touch Bar в MacBook Pro 2016: 15 подсказок для эффективной работы

Главной изюминкой новых MacBook Pro, представленных в октябре нынешнего года, стала сенсорная панель Touch Bar, заменившая ряд физических клавиш в верхней части клавиатуры. Панель представляет собой полноценный MultiTouch Retina дисплей, являющийся дополнительной панелью инструментов для активного приложения, с которым в настоящее время работает пользователь. В данной статье мы предлагаем 15 советов, которые позволят сделать работу с Touch Bar простой и эффективной.

Как отобразить функциональные клавиши F1, F2 и т.д.

Для того чтобы вызвать функциональные клавиши F1, F2 и т.д., просто нажмите и удерживайте кнопку Fn, расположенную в левой нижней части клавиатуры.

Всегда показывать функциональные клавиши в определенных приложениях

При работе с некоторыми приложениями может возникать необходимость постоянного отображения функциональных клавиш. Пользователи могут самостоятельно настроить данную функцию. Для этого нужно зайти в «Системные настройки» → «Клавиатура» → «Сочетания клавиш», выбрать «Функциональные клавиши» и нажать значок «+», чтобы добавить нужное приложение. Теперь при запуске данного приложения функциональные клавиши всегда будут отображаться по умолчанию. При нажатии и удержании клавиши Fn на Touch Bar появится интерфейс Control Strip (правая часть Touch Bar, отображающая различные переключатели macOS).

Быстрая корректировка уровня громкости и яркости дисплея

Для того чтобы настроить уровень громкости или яркости экрана, просто нажмите, удерживайте и изменяйте положение ползунка в Control Strip.

Настройка интерфейса Control Strip на панели Touch Bar

Откройте «Системные настройки» → «Клавиатура» и выберите опцию «Настроить Control Strip». Значки в панели Control Strip начнут покачиваться. В этом режиме можно перетягивать (удалять, заменять) выбранные иконки переключателей с дисплея MacBook Pro на панель Control Strip.

Доступ к расширенным возможностям Control Strip

Нажмите на кнопку в виде шеврона (стрелки) слева от интерфейса Control Strip для того, чтобы получить доступ к развернутому списку системных функций и элементов управления.

Настройка развернутого Control Strip

Нажатие на кнопку в виде шеврона (стрелки) в процессе настройки Control Strip позволит получить доступ к более полному списку системных функций.

Как разместить необходимые инструменты выбранного приложения на панели Touch Bar

Для того чтобы разместить необходимые инструменты определенного приложения на панели Touch Bar, запустите приложение, инструменты которого вы хотели бы разместить в Touch Bar  и перейдите на вкладку «Вид» → «Настроить Touch Bar». Стоит учесть, что далеко не все приложения имеют такую возможность.

Как кастомизировать Control Strip в процессе изменения настроек приложения

При изменении настроек приложения вы можете быстро перейти к корректировке Control Strip путем простого тапа на интерфейс.

Клавиша Escape

Клавиша Escape размещена в верхнем левом углу сенсорной панели управления, однако ее расположение слегка не совпадает с расположением физических кнопок под ней. Тем не менее, владельцам MacBook Pro, привыкших к слепому набору, не стоит беспокоиться — нажатия на клавишу Escape будут регистрироваться, даже если палец не полностью соприкоснется с кнопкой.

Спящий режим

Подсветка Touch Bar приглушается после 60 секунд неактивности и полностью выключается после 75 секунд для сохранения заряда батареи ноутбука. Для того чтобы вернуть ее в рабочее состояние, можно коснуться либо панели, либо клавиатуры, либо трекпада.

Трекпад + Touch Bar

macOS позволяет одновременно работать с трекпадом и Touch Bar. Например, вы можете добавлять объект в Pixelmator и одновременно менять его цвет или размер.

Возможность делать скриншоты Touch Bar

С выходом macOS 10.12.2 у пользователей появилась возможность делать скриншоты сенсорной панели Touch Bar (подробно). Функционал доступен владельцам MacBook Pro под управлением macOS 10.12.2 или более поздних версий.

ПО ТЕМЕ: Трезвый взгляд на недостатки MacBook Pro 2016. Может не все так плохо?

Siri

При вызове Siri с помощью Touch Bar нажмите и удерживайте значок Siri для того, чтобы подать команды голосовому помощнику.

Управление медиаконтентом

При проигрывании музыки или видео на Touch Bar появляется панель, позволяющая управлять элементами воспроизведения. Нажатие на соответсвующую клавишу в левой части интерфейса Control Strip позволит получить доступ к элементам управления воспроизведением аудио или видео.

Возможность использования Touch Bar на MacBook Pro с Windows

Среди владельцев MacBook нередко можно встретить пользователей, которые с помощью Boot Camp ставят на ноутбуки ОС Windows. На ноутбуках, использующих Windows, Touch Bar работает в качестве стандартных функциональных клавиш F1-F12, включая кнопку Esc. Доступ к клавишам можно получить путем нажатия и удержания кнопки Fn. Стоит отметить, что помимо стандартных функций, пользователи не смогут получить доступ к другим возможностям сенсорной панели.

How to Disable Touch Bar on MacBook Pro

The Touch Bar on MacBook Pro is arguably the most controversial component of the current generation MacBook Pro (aside from the keyboard itself anyway), and if you’re a MacBook Pro user who does not like the Touch Bar experience for any reason, whether it’s poking around to find and use the touch ESC key, or the constantly changing nature of the little touch screen in lieu of a simple function key row, you can effectively disable the Touch Bar on MacBook Pro models that come equipped with the thin touch screen strip.

By disabling the Touch Bar with the method we will demonstrate here, you will effectively have a static row of keys like a regular Mac keyboard does, no matter what app you’re using or what you’re doing on the Mac. With this setting, the digital Touch Bar keys will always remain consistent with touch buttons for ESC, brightness down, brightness up, Mission Control, Launchpad, keyboard brightness down, keyboard brightness up, skip audio back, pause / play audio, skip audio forward, mute, volume down, volume up, Siri – or if you customize the Control Strip of the Touch Bar those customizations will appear instead. Regardless, you won’t have the Touch Bar frequently changing to other digital buttons and flashing colors, sliders, thumbnails, and other options on the small touch screen above the keyboard.

  1. Go to the  Apple menu and choose “System Preferences”
  2. Choose the “Keyboard” preference panel and then select the “Keyboard” tab of the control panel
  3. Look for “Touch Bar shows:” and pull down the dropdown menu alongside that, choosing “Expanded Control Strip”
  4. Confirm the Touch Bar screen is now showing the touch buttons for escape key, brightness, Mission Control, sound, etc, then exit out of System Preferences as usual

Effectively you’re stopping the little Touch Bar screen from changing appearance and functionality constantly with each app and depending on what’s going on on screen, so the Touch Bar remains consistent and behaves slightly more like a regular keyboard function row, except it’s still a tiny touch screen of course.

If you don’t like the Touch Bar, then disabling Touch Bar functionality this way is about as close to a normal keyboard experience you can get on the current MacBook Pro lineup, aside from using an external keyboard anyway (if the external keyboard idea appeals to you, then the Apple Magic Keyboard remains fantastic, with a crisp feel, nice key travel, a hardware escape key, and the entire hardware function row of f1 through f12, and no Touch Bar).

Of course, disabling the Touch Bar is not going to magically give you back a physical Escape key or the other physical buttons that are missing, but it may help you to use the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar keyboard if you’ve found yourself frustrated with it’s behavior, and thus some MacBook Pro with Touch Bar users may appreciate this option.

Like most settings, this can be reversed, so if you decide that you prefer to have the ever-changing dynamic nature of the Touch Bar back again simply return to the Keyboard settings and adjust the Touch Bar options to suit your needs.

If you find yourself wanting to disable the Touch Bar because you don’t like it, you’re annoyed with it, or you don’t find it to be useful, then you might also want to consider customizing the Touch Bar; for example if you accidentally hit the Siri button constantly then removing Siri from Touch Bar is quite effective at preventing that, and putting a screen lock button on the Touch Bar is another really nice customization trick. There are a bunch of other goofy uses for Touch Bar too, so it can be worthwhile exploring some of the Touch Bar tips to get a better feel for if the hardware component is compatible with your particular workflow.

And if you have any particularly helpful or interesting insight into Touch Bar for MacBook Pro, or perhaps another way to disable the Touch Bar, then share with us in the comments below!

Everything you need to know about the Touch Bar for MacBook Pro

Apple still insists it has no interest in multitouch screens on its Mac line — that's what the iPad is for, after all. But that doesn't mean multitouch can't have a place on the Mac: The company's new Touch Bar (currently available on the new 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro) is a touch-based OLED bar that replaces the row of function keys on your keyboard. Depending on which app is active on your screen, the bar's options change to reflect the best controls for that program. The Touch Bar also includes a Touch ID sensor on its right side, integrated into the Power button, which adds quick account switching and Apple Pay authorization to your Mac.

Whether you just picked up a new MacBook Pro or you're still considering a Mac with Touch Bar support, we've put together an ultimate guide for all your multitouch controlling needs.

Which Macs get the Touch Bar?

How does it work?

There is a small strip at the top of the screen that features a light-up panel with different options, depending on what you are doing on your Mac. For example, if you're using Safari, it will show you navigation controls and favorite websites. If you are checking your email, it will show you mail actions like replying or flagging.

On the right side, Apple offers a stationary Control Strip, which offers quick access to system features like Brightness, Volume, Siri, and more. To the left, the Touch Bar offers contextual functions that change from app to app. Not only is the Touch Bar completely multitouch, it can support up to 10 simultaneous inputs (one for every finger), enabling many potential creative options in third-party apps

The Touch ID button has replaced the Power button as the best way to turn on and authorize your Mac: It's located to the far right of the Touch Bar and connect to the Mac's T1 Secure Enclave chip, which encrypts your fingerprint and keeps it offline. You can use it to log into your account on your Mac, or pay for purchases using Apple Pay on the Web. You can add and name up to three fingerprints per account, or five fingerprints total.
