Here are some OS X things that I wish I'd know about earlier (and that
are useful in MacVim):
The Find pasteboard: Whenever you search for text in OS X it is added
to the find pasteboard which is shared between all apps. Thus if you
search for something in one app you can simply hit Cmd-g in another
app to search for the same string. This works with MacVim as well.
You can copy the selected text to the find pasteboard by hitting
Switching between windows in one app: On a US keyboard you can hit
Cmd-` (that's the "tilde key") to switch between windows like Cmd-Tab
does, but it only cycles through the windows of the active app.
Hmmm...can't think of much more at the moment but those two things may
come in handy.
