I hate how everything is so hidden now, there's no way for a novice user to ever know those operations exist, it's plain stupid. With the release of Canvas Draw, I finally upgraded from Snow Leopard to El Capitan and I'm not liking a whole lot of things, it's so much more awkward and as you say, clumsy, like Windows has always been.
