    Don't get that choice on my work computer...and many of the things I need to do for work don't work on macs.

    Also, I am pretty sure acrobat professional is pretty much the same on macs.

    then use the lighter trick to make it not frayed.



    come on guys, tricks I learned while playing ice hockey shouldn't translate this easily in a men's style forum.

    Lighter Trick works well for paracord, nylon ropes, cable sheathing, and several other applications to prevent fraying. Alternatively a heat gun could be used as well.

    It's shocking to me that there are grown men who have never heard of using a lighter (or other heat source) to repair frayed ends.
