OS X Mountain Lion :: How To Change Language-specific Font Fallback Preferences

Aug 27, 2014

My MacBook's default fonts for viewing content in the Malayalam script/language seem to be Malayalam MN and Malayalam Sangam MN -- not surprisingly, since those are the default Malayalam fonts that come with the OS.  However, both of those fonts are missing a lot of conjuncts/ligatures.  There are some free fonts that do have the missing characters, so I'd like to put them at the top of whatever preference list the OS is using to decide which fonts to choose.

MacBook Air :: Change System Default Language?

May 24, 2012

Just bought my first mac (macbook air 11") and i bought it second hand.The guy that sold it to me, had the language set to Chinese. I cant read Chinese so i asked him to change it to English, which he did.He also left a lot of his personal information on here, which is not wise, but i am a nice guy and attempted to do a system restore. The whole restore menues were in Chinese but i managed to guess my way through it and now it seems to be doing a restore. I know the language can be changed once in the OS, however how do i do this for the restore partition?

So this is a really silly question but I wanted to know, how do you change the name of your home drive? Like I know how you can change the user name in system pref. but how do you change the name next to the little house icon? Because I'm really super bad at explaining things, a picture is attached below.

OS X :: Can't Change Backgrounds - System Preferences Crashes - Relaunch

Oct 25, 2009

I'm having a strange problem with my MacBook. I'm dual monitoring, and yesterday the screen on my actual MacBook went to the blue apple background instead of the BMW M Coupe I had as the background. Strange, but I didn't really care. Then today, I decide to change the background on the 21". I try and change it once and System Preferences crashes and I relaunch it. Now when I click on a new background it doesn't work and it spikes my CPU a bit. These wallpapers were downloaded off of a forum (downloaded each of them individually) and originally resided on my desktop (icons) but then I moved them to my HD. Thats when the problem started. Is my CPU supposed to spike when my HD is being used (searching for something in finder)?

How do I change the name in the iCloud account details in system preferences? For some reason it has picked up a wrong name and everytime I try to change it it does not memorise the change but keeps defaulting back to the wrong name.

Software :: Can't Change Language Setting In "Language & Text"?

Nov 21, 2010

Under Language & Text there are 4 tabs:




Input Sources

I have added a language under the first tab, Language, only to find that there is no correspondingly supported input option under the fourth tab, Input Sources.

I would now like to remove the entry I added under the first tab, Langauge, but cannot figure out how to do this. I have tried highlighting and pressing delete, dragging it out of the window, etc., but so far nothing works.

Applications :: Multilingual Language Preferences?

Jul 3, 2010

I was wondering if there are ways to split the preferences of Language and Text on Macs. I'm operating on Snow Leopard and I was hoping to have situations where I can isolate certain applications to certain languages.

I.e. - Open web browser in (region + language settings = Japan/Japanese) while at the same time I could also be working on my word processor in Italiano (region + language settings = Italy/Italian).

Is there any application for this? Mainly in helping to split language preferences for alternate applications or maybe even alternate windows in one application.
