Applications :: Resizing Text Fields In Safari?

Jan 15, 2008

"Resize at will.

Maybe the text field you're typing in is a bit too small to read. Or maybe you just have a lot to say. Either way, Safari lets you resize text fields on any website, just by grabbing the corner of the field. Resize a field and the web page reflows to make room."

From: [URL]

Can anyone actually get this to work? I've never seen a website, Apple's included, that let's you do this feature. Yet it's listed on Apple's webpage.

OS X :: Tabbing Through Fields Skips Non Text Entry Fields?

Jun 10, 2010

I can tab between text entry fields, but it won't select ratio, checkboxes, or buttons. This seems to be universal, and not program specific?

OS X :: How Do I Get Safari To Present Auto-fill Options In Text Fields Like Firefox Can

Aug 2, 2010

How do I get Safari to present auto-fill options in text fields like Firefox can.

Seems like a cookies thing but I think not because it presents me with all previous names I've used on other website's text fields before.

For example in Firefox if I go to sites I haven't visited before and I'm asked to type in my new username, as soon as I type the first letter, Firefox gives me options from previous text fields I've filled in before all over the net and unrelated to the site I'm on.

Applications :: FileMaker 9 Database Design - Defining Text Fields

Nov 10, 2009

I've been using Filemaker for years, but I've never had a need for anything too complicated - until now. I am in the midst of designing a vote database. I am hoping to find a way to have a choice made from a drop down menu that would define the text fields. I need this to be accurate as possible.

OS X :: Dock & Expose Gone As Well As Black Backgrounds In Text/dynamic Fields?

Feb 23, 2009

I installed the updates yesterday and restarted. Upon restart, the dock was gone. I went into the preferences, and made sure everything was correct with the settings. Also, the background image is going bezerk, changing every 3-4 seconds, even thought it's not set to do so. Expose is not working, the "Application Switcher" (cmd + tab, sorry, don't know proper name) is not working, and there is a strange black background in nearly every window.

Screenshot of what is happening is posted here:[URL]

Please note weird look of text on windows, and black backgrounds in the fields.

I've repaired permissions and restarted multiple times. i've never had this happen before...

MacBook Air :: Cannot Click Links Or Fields In Safari

Apr 20, 2012

Just purchased a new MacBook Air for my wife.  While it is a huge step-up from the previous macbook, we've run into a very frustrating problem.  Every now and then Safari will no longer accept any click on links or the ability to enter data into fields.  You tap and click and it's like a brick wall--no response.  We've tried forcing a refresh of that page, still won't work.  If I quit Safari and then go back to the page, it's works.  But unless I quit the app, it just remains an unclickable webpage. 

Any thoughts?? I've never encountered this before and it is hard to duplicate as it is not consistent with specific sites or work flow.

Applications :: Safari 4 Text?

Applications :: How To See 'To' And 'CC' Fields Without Using Long Headers

Jan 7, 2011

Am trying to use Mail (version 3.6 on OS 10.5.8) and when I view a message would like to be able the 'To' and 'Cc' fields without having to use Long Headers or Raw Source options (which I found under the View - Message menu). These give far too much unnecessary information, but I need to be able to easily see who else the message has been sent to. This seems really basic for an email program and I suspect it is really obvious, but I've looked everywhere and on the web with no answers!

Applications :: Does Pages Have Fields/Variables

Sep 19, 2009

One feature I like about NeoOffice is the ability to create user-defined variables (what it calls Fields) and then insert them into the text. If you were writing a contract, for example, one variable could be a name. By inserting a variable several times in a document, you can save time and effort updating the document by simply changing the variable's value and having the several instances in the text updated automatically.

Applications :: Searching Within Text On A Webpage In Safari?

May 27, 2009

I often find myself searching for a piece of text that I wrote myself within a webpage. For example, when writing a long email in gmail, I want to look for a certain word I wrote somewhere in the middle. Firefox dynamically includes all the text that is present on the page (as opposed to just what's in the source of the page) and I'm wondering if there is a way to do that with Safari.

Applications :: Scratchy Text On Safari Webpages?

Jan 14, 2010

Every once in awhile I'll go to a webpage (usually not the same one every time), and some of the text will be Scratchy looking (for lack of a better term). Kind of like those website verification systems where you have to type in the letters and numbers they give you, but there are lines scratched all over them so that bots can't read the picture and fill in the letters and text automatically. Here is a picture of what I'm talking about: The only thing that I can think of that might be causing this is that I have like 1,500++ fonts loaded on my computer and it might just be getting confused with all those fonts running simultaneously.

Safari :: 5.1.2 Keeps Changing Text Field Randomly On Text Input

Feb 21, 2012

Safari keeps changing the text field on input, do you know how to correct this issue? 

Here is an example:

Let's say I load, it appears in the safari window as usual.

Suppose I begin to type a search in the google search field at the top right of the safari window (not the one on the google page)

if when doing this the sentence is long for the search, at some point randomly, the rest of the text will be entered this time in the google search text field on the google page! (which is the very next text field) So when I hit enter it makes google search half of my request...

Safari changed the text field I was into with no warning. I want to say I do not press tab at any moment. This is annoying really, and this does not appear anywhere else than in Safari. It seems the issue is not systematic, but appears quite often.

I have no universal access setting except "enable access for assistive device" I had to check this box upon installing a software in the past but I can't remember what it was.

Applications :: Safari On Windows Keeps Forgetting Text Size

Nov 13, 2010

I'm trying to use Safari on Windows again now that a smooth scroll extension has finally been released. However, I have now encountered another problem and was hoping someone could point me to the relevant option or checkbox to make this work. I like to make the text size on different websites different sizes using Ctrl & +. That works fine. However, unlike Firefox, IE and Chrome, Safari keeps forgetting my text size preferences, so when I close it and then re-open it, every website where I've altered the text size has gone back to the default text size. Is someone able to tell me how to get Safari to remember these text size preferences?

Applications :: Firefox 3 Text Rendering Versus Safari

Jan 2, 2009

I would like to know which renders text better. In other words, where does text look better, on Safari or on Firefox 3.xx?

I am now using Firefox as my main browser and the things that bother me are the lack of Mac OS X integration (drop down menus, text boxes, no bouncing download icons, etc) but I can live without them because for me Firefox is technically superior...

I still have the impression though that the text renders best on Safari. Am I wrong? It seems to me that the character spacing works better on Safari than Firefox, not that the latter isn't any good. This thing could make me return to Safari again, so now I am trying Firefox out for the next couple of days.

Applications :: Resizing Of Itunes Possible?

May 2, 2009

Progressing quite well with my conversion over to Mac - few teething problems sorted.

However, got one, quite a basic one that is doing my head in.

Most applications I can resize the window, however, on itunes, when it opens, the corner that you would normally use to resize is obscured by the tool bar thing along the bottom (sorry, cant recall the name, is it the dashboard?) anyway - have tried moving this dashboard, but still cant get to the corner I need - when you minimize, it just goes to a very small box.

I know its something very simple, but cant find the right thing to do.

Applications :: Resizing Of Windows In OSX PROCESS?

May 23, 2006

Well I just switched over to Macs on sunday with a new MacBook. Coming from Windows XP theres two things I miss and I want to know if there are any applications to chnage this:

1) In OS X you can only resize windows from the bottom right corner which gets kind of annoying. In Windows XP you can resize from any corner including the sides with that little black adjuster arrow, is there any program or any way I can naturally do something similiar in OS X?

2) I want my Dock to be more like the Start Bar in Windows XP. Meaning that I want all my programs to stop at the Dock on the bottom. Some program automatically stop at the Dock and can't be pulled down behind the Dock, such as iPhoto. Other programs however, such as iTunes, can be pulled down behind the dock and I don't like that. Is there any way I can naturally change this or any application I can download?

Applications :: Resizing Photos For Avatars?

Dec 2, 2009

I am quite an amateur when it comes to resizing digital photos, so I need some help please.I just hit my 500 post count and I am now able to add an avatar. I wanted to use a photo from my iPhoto library, but the photo seems to big for what is allowed by this site for an avatar.

I tried Exporting the photo and using various settings in iPhoto to make the photo smaller, but I keep getting "file upload failed", so I am guessing that it is not within the specified size for avatars.What is the easiest way to change the size of photos so that I can use them, not just on this website, but also the many other sites that require certain sizes for avatar uploading?

Applications :: Photoshop CS4 Visual Corruption When Resizing Windows

Nov 12, 2008

So I just installed PS CS4 as downloaded from Adobe's website. When I resize a window, the gray area in the background becomes totally corrupt. Doesn't affect the document itself but it's distracting. I tried turning off OpenGL drawing in the Preferences but that didn't help. I've not seen any visual corruption anywhere else in OS X but wonder if it's a problem with the ATI 3870 at all. Never saw anything like this with CS2 or CS3. It is OpenGL drawing. It wasn't obvious I had to restart Photoshop for it to take effect.

Applications :: Unable To Resize Videos / ITunes 10 Video Resizing?

Sep 2, 2010

Am I correct in noticing that when I watch some video content within iTunes now I can't resize it without first "Open Video in New Window" ?

The only view option I get when the video is constrained within iTunes is Full Screen, all other options are greyed out. I don't want all my video automatically resized to max my iTunes window.

If so, that's a bit of a pain.

Applications :: Disk Utility (Leopard) Resizing Partition On External HDD

Mar 24, 2009

I'm trying to use my 500 GB external HD as solely a storage drive now whereas it used to be storage and backup, with separate partitions for each. I have deleted the backup partition (the first partition) successfully with Disk Utility, but how can I resize the remaining partition into the free space before it on the disk? I can't drag it or enter the desired size in the text box, it doesn't seem to want to get any larger. Is there any way to do this without purchasing ipartition? I have an old version from Tiger, but I'm not sure if that will work safely on leopard, and I do not want to lose my rather larger collection of ripped dvds on this external drive. Here's a screen shot of what i now see in disk utility.
