disc utility and VoiceOver

macOS & Mac Apps
Hi All, I'm in the process of trying to partition an external hard drive, using Disc Utility. I am "adding a partition" instead of erasing the disc, and creating new partitions from scratch. Having said that, when I "add" a partition, there's a scroll area that comes up. Upon interacting with it, there is the first partition, it's name, and it's size. Then a vertical splitter, and then the second partition, with it's name and size. I cannot edit either the name, or the size of either partition, and from playing with it, the vertical splitter does nothing. Outside of this scroll area, are text fields, reflecting the name and size, etc. but those are dimmed. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. :) Thanks so much, Rocco

Navigate to the partition in the scroll area and press VO space. The textfields should then be available. At least that worked for me.
