IMac Intel :: How To Set Entourage As Default Program To Email Pictures From Preview
I'm a PC-to-Mac convert and am really enjoying my iMac, except for a few little nuisances. Here's one:

I have set Entourage as my default email program, both in (Mac) Mail and in Entourage. Everything works smoothly when clicking on an email link on a web page, or sending from iPhoto or from individual, open documents. But when I try to mail an image or a Photo Booth picture from Finder>Preview>File>Mail Image, it always opens Mail and not Entourage.

There must be a way to set the default email program in Finder and/or Preview, but I sure can't find it and Apple support wasn't able to help much either. My experience is that users often know more than the experts, who are expected to know a little about a lot of varied topics. I've searched on this forum but can't find any reference to this exact situation.

Mac Safari :: Log In Get The Default 'Messages Per Topic Page' (10 Or 15) And Default Is Set To 25?
When in the forums, the search field looks as if it's superimposed onto itself, that is the magnifying glass shows twice, the one on top and one underneath (the search field underneath also extends to the right a little too)AND when I log in I get the default 'Messages per Topic Page' (10 or 15) and my default is set to 25, it's only when I refresh that it behaves as it should.

Mac Safari :: Setting FTP Program As Default
I currently have Speed Download and Transmit FTP clients installed on my Mac. At the moment, when I click on a download link in Safari sometimes it just pops into the Safari Downloads window but sometimes it launches Speed Download. Is there anyway to make Safari launch Transmit FTP instead of Speed Download? Also, is there anyway to get Safari to always use the FTP clients?

Mac Safari :: Google Set As Default But Search Running In Yahoo?
Despite selecting 'Google' as my default search engine, Safari 5.0.3 insists in running every search in Yahoo. Recently I was having lots of Safari problems, so I deleted and completely re-installed Safari on my iMac. Since then Safari has been working more or less normally, except for this one quirk. I tried removing the file to my desktop and restarting Safari, but it continued to search in Yahoo, so I put it back.

I feel stupid for even asking this because it seems like something I'd normally be able to figure out but I've searched a bit with no results. Oddly enough, this only seems to have become an issue since the 10.6.4 update. In Mail, I can't seem to set the default email address to be used when composing a new email.

Applications :: Safari - No Contextual Menu With Right Click On Link
When going to a linked page in Safari I usually want to open it in a new tab or a new window and occasionally to do other things with it. So I'm used to right-clicking on links to bring up a contextual menu offering me:

Open Link in New Window
Open Link in New Tab
Download Linked File
Download Linked File As...
Add Link to Bookmarks...

Copy Link: I noticed the loss of this menu when my wife wanted me to look at web pages she had found related to a possible holiday. Using Safari in her account on our iMac, I found no menu appeared when I right-clicked on a link. I checked she had the "secondary button" set up OK in the mouse preferences and I also found right-clicking worked OK elsewhere. I then tried other ways of making the menu appear on a link (CTRL-clicking or holding down the left, primary button); neither worked!................

Pages 09 :: Default Hypertext Link (URL) - How To Change
Within Pages when I select a word and open the inspector and select the link tab, choose the checkbox to make the word a hypertext link, Pages inserts a URL automatically. It is a very specific URL that I can't imagine why it would use that URL as a default. However I cannot find any preference that will allow me to change this default. Where is it - how do I change it. I'd much rather have a blank default that this: [URL]

IWeb 09 :: Cannot Publish Link To PDF - Program Crashes
I have published links to documents (pdf/doc) on my iWeb website several times in the past, using MobileMe. But now iWeb crashes when I try to do this. I'm using the "insert hyperlink" function in the inspector. I have found that I can publish a doc by dragging it onto the page. That doesn't crash the program, and it publishes just fine. But I really need to link to a pdf, and nothing I try is working (can't drag pdfs onto iWeb to make links). I have used only 1GB of my 10GB iWeb account, and my subscription is up-to-date.

Applications :: How Does One Change Safari Address Bar Default Auto Completion
A co-worker (who isn't English speaking) would like to change Safari so that when he enters a site name into the address bar (for example "ford") that Safari doesn't automatically add ".com" to the address. Instead he wants the browser to use ".ch" (Switzerland) as the default autocomplete in the address line. Anyone know how we can change that (maybe in Terminal)..?

Applications :: Make 'RAR Expander' Default Program For .rar Files?
How do I make "RAR expander" my default program for .rar files?Or is there another program you would recommend?

Background:I used "RAR expander" for a long time until I came across a file it was not compatible with. I then downloaded and installed "The Unarchiver" and it worked on the file "RAR expander" would not open.

After that "The Unarchiver" became the default program for .rar files. The problem is that "The Unarchiver" does not work well with password protected files. So for months now I have just manually opened "RAR expander" whenever I try to open a password protected file.

I want to keep both programs so I will be able to open any file, but as I rarely use "The Unarchiver" I would like to have that be the one I have to dig through sub-folders to use. That is, unless there is some excellent program I have not tried.

Logic Studio / Pro :: Program Number Not Retaining Link To Sound In External Midi Keyboard
I have Logic Pro 8 and a MAcbook connected via a Midi cable with a Yamaha CVP 109 keyboard which has its own really cool sounds.

I can record from the keyboard using the keyboard sounds into Logic Pro, and I can playback the results as long as I am within the same session (i.e. I have not closed down Logoc Pro or OI have not switched off the keyboard.

Problem 1 - If I switch off the keyboard, the Program number visible in the INspector in Logic Pro changes from say 40 to 0 every time. I see it happening in realtime on the screen. So if I subsequently save the Logic pro project, all the instrument program numbers are set to 0.

Problem 2 If instead of switching off the keyboard, I exit Logic Pro and reload the project, the program numbers are correct but they still play as if they are program 0. I have to select another number and go back to the one originally visible to get them to work.

Pages 09 :: Set A Different Default Language?
I'm really angry with Apple this time. This is something you couldn't be so difficult to change, but it is. I'm using MacOs in Italian and I don't want to change it. I like it. It's my language and it's my right to chose what I want.

But I write in English. And it's impossible to have a different language set as default. I want simply to change the language for the whole document. Otherwise nice feature as the Outline mode is useless (you have to change the language for every new section).
