Applications :: Candybar Dock Background - Options Under Preview Background Are Grayed Out?
Jun 11, 2010
I cant figure out how to change the background color of it in candybar. I'm sick of the standard grey mac color.When I'm in candybar I go to the dock section-->view-->dock-->preview background..the options under preview background are greyed out. Also when I am in the dock section-->view-->background-->change color. I try changing the color but it doesn't change. Am I doing something wrong..or what?
I have a Macbook Pro and I have been recently changing around my backgrounds including my login background. However, when I changed my background via command in the terminal by switching the defaultdesktop.jpg with another picture in the CoreServices folder, My picture does not show up on the login screen instead it is just a plain blue screen. Is there anyway to restore the original login background settings?because I actually found a program "loginox" that easily changes the login picture however, it will not open because it says I have changed the original background photo.
i have returned my dock back to 2d, but it has a transparent background??? I don't want that, I simply want the black background with the 2d dock, how would i get that ?? like so...http://reo-2007.deviantart.com/art/L...Style-69915653
I've been trying to change my docks theme for the past few days but have been unable. I've used Candybar, Dock Library etc. and none of them seem to work. I'm really annoyed because it used to work for me. Any suggestions on how I can remedy this problem?
I have this problem on my new MBA (2012) and mac mini (2011), both running the latest update of LION (10.7.4). Basically, if I am using preview, it shows up on my dock no problem and I can close windows/hide/quite no problem. Usually a while later, a copy of Preview ends up showing up in my FORCE QUIT menu (if I happen to be there), but is not visibly open. (see pic).
Odd that it occurs on both. Only things that are non-apple installed on MBA (and mirror with MM) are:
i just purchased candybar about 2 weeks ago on my imac. love the convenience of the program, but i may be selling the computer soon.i'll definately put a fresh install of leopard on the imac befor selling.if i buy a macbook, can i use my candybar serial..or do i need to purchase it again?
when I switch users on my mid 2007 iMac (with Mavericks 10.9.3), the background pictures resizes and the dock doesnt load. I've noted also that switching applications via command+tab doesn't show the icons of the applications, and when accessing "Notifications", it doesnt draw correctly on the screen (the area of the notifications center appears on the right of the screen, but an extension of the notifications is also drawn under hte desktops icons).
I was using candybar to edit some icons. Then while it was restarting the dock the application, i think, crashed. After that my dock was no more I have tried making another login but still the dock is missing I dont believe that anything got deleted idk. Also I opened candybar again and I pressed the button to make it restore all the changes is made. It completed the restore but my dock was still missing.
First off, I've searched the forums, but can't find an answer -- sorry if I missed something.Just got a new machine running 10.6.3 -- ugh, the dock and folders and so on look like clunky Windows junk :-(I miss my simple, elegant 10.4.11 dock ...I don't want to add novelty icons or that kind of thing, I just want a borderless dock that's semi-transparent or clear. And apparently all the apps out there to change the dock background don't work with Snow Leopard.I know CandyBar can help me with the folder icons and app icons, but as far as I can tell, not the actual dock background.
is it possible to launch OSX applications in the background without allowing them to steal focus from the current app? i sometimes want to have an application launch and not interrupt what i am currently doing.
here's an example:
i'm copying text from a webpage using safari and that i plan to edit in MS Office Word and so right after i open the webpage and its loading i use spotlight to launch Word and then go back to Safari. What happens is that while it is opening, at some point it will come to the front and interrupt my session in Safari.
I was wondering if there is an app (willing to pay) that will run in the background of my MacBook Pro and store all the log (when the computer is turned on, what app is launched, what time when that action take place....so on)
Maybe something that will take a snap shot of my screen every XX second and keep record of what key is pressed.
It would be great if that application has password protect so only I can access it.
I know that it might not be a good thing to do this, so please feel free to PM me.
I've found (and somewhat modified) an AppleScript to sync a research folder on my MacBook with a directory on my FTP server so I can have access here and at the office to an exact close of a file system (as well as backup remotely).
Is there any way to change the background inside iTunes, when I select Music it used to be dark grey, now it is bright white and it is really annoying but I can not seem to figure out where you can change the backgrounds or background colors inside of the new iTunes.
I'm seeing this weird Safari bug where when I "Open in new background tab" on a link, the new tab opens, but its graphic shows that it is selected. See screenshot attached. Anyone else experiencing this? The only thing I can think of that I did to my system is I installed SIMBL and GreaseKit, but I have since uninstalled them both, but the problem still persists. I'm on 10.6.2, Safari 4.0.4.
I have an app called Teamviewer for both my iPhone and my iMac & I want to be able to have it running in the background of my iMac all the time so I can connect to it from my iPhone anytime I want. Otherwise I have to open the program to let it get connected to the web. I'd like for it to always be on without any notification of it being on like dock or taskbar menu. Here is what it looks like when it is up and running. The little grey window in the upper right corner is semi transparent when your mouse is not on it. I do have dock dodger installed so the app icon is not docked but I want both of the windows seen to be able to be gone and it still remain connected. Is this possible?
I recently took delivery of my 27" i7 iMac. I've installed MS Office and when I recently went to use word for the first time since installation, I noticed the background is divided into 2 shades of grey.
Word is functioning normally other than for this but the split display is just a little distracting. I also use Word on my MBP and don't have the same issues there, nor did I on my old G5.
Admittedly, I'm one of the not-quite-thinking-straight early adopters of Snow Leopard. I performed an update install & everything went quite well (very fast boot times, etc.) However, my Photoshop CS3 has some weird things happening (all other CS3 apps work fine!). I can open, edit & save images with no probs. But, there are numerous menu options that are grayed out, like "File>Quit"!! In order to quit the app, I have to force quit every time. Also, several other commands in the Path window are grayed out. I have not tried reinstalling SL, since everything else is working perfectly.
Is it possible to set the rather bright and empty/windows looking iTunes 9 background to black? If not, then I'm going back to version 8. However, I'd like to stick with the most up to date if possible.
Upgraded to Safari 5 today. As a web developer working on projects, I should have known better, but I did discover a bug:
Safari 5 incorrectly displays some embedded Flash backgrounds.
On every browser except Safari 5 (including previous versions of Safari), the Flash text is displayed properly with a transparent background. In Safari 5, the text is displayed with a black background. I tested this on Safari 5, Safari 4, Firefox 3.6.3, Chrome 5.0.375.55, and IE8 for Windows 7.
I don't know yet if adding more variables to the Flash SWF file will allow the black background to go away, but I intend to find out.
It's not just a small website, either. For those of you with Safari 5, check out Adobe's CS5 page. Notice anything weird about the headline text?
I recently downloaded and installed Office 2011 and I was wondering if anybody knew of a way to change the background color from grey to anything you want. In 2008, there was a file in the Contents-->Resources folder called "Page Layout View Background Rest" that you could replace with any image and the background would change (by 'background', I mean the actual grey color on each side of the word document, not the background of the document itself).
Mail is running in the background, but it won't quit or open. I need to reboot (i.e. hold down start for 10 seconds) to restart. Other applications are also very slow to respond during this, incl. Safari. I'm on a Late 2007 Macbook running 10.6.2, which I updated yesterday.
Edit some template background colors in Garage sale. I know you have to use the template editor but Im not really sure what to do there. I wanna change some of the background colors from black/brown to white.
