I buy the new iMac with i7 and I'm running a migration using the assistant from MacBook Pro to the new one. I have my doubt in how to grab all the messages I have in my mails in this migration. I have like 2000 mails from several years that I store in the mail of my MacBook. I can't imagine if the Migration assistant just pass my documents and won't grab my flagged mails in the MacBook Pro . The migration didn't still runnig so I'm not sure what is going to be after all end. By the way I do this with a USB connection frim one to the other. Is any body know about my inquirie of the mails?
Lately was experiencing a very bad malfunction from my PowerBook G4 drag and drop. As far as I know for this feature, we are able to drag then hold while we move our mouse over to a desired folder or destination, that selected folder will spring up it's internal folders' view. However this seems not to be working any further. Anyone knows what could be the issue? I was unable to find this piece of advise from else where and hence decided to seek advises from here.
I have previously used the GRAB utility to take a snapshot of an open Safari windiw, and the snapshot included the entire windiw contents. When I opened the snapshot in Preview, I could scroll up and down and view the entire contents of the original Safari windiw. Then, I tried it again a few hours later on a different Safari window, but I then got only the part of the windiw that was visible in the browser at the time that I GRABbed the window (i.e., when I took the snapshot).What do I need to do to get the entire windiw?
I use grab quite a lot on my ibook g4, but to get to it i have to open up preview and go through file>grab which is annoying. I would do it through the application menu by going Safari>Services>Grab but on all the programs, this option is greyed out and i can't access grab through that menu.
Im having problems executing a successful screen grab on my iMac.Ive always used Shift+Cloverleaf+4 to select a portion of the screen and then get a snapshot, and that still seems to work because im hearing the photosnap sound.The problem occurs when i go to paste this captured selection, nothing happens. I cant paste it in photoshop, email, or anywhere for that matter.
Is there a way to "grab" and move a window without having to move the cursor to the borders? On linux you can hold down "alt" then click anywhere on a window and the cursor becomes a "hand" so you can grab and move a window around. It makes it easier especially on a laptop so you don't have to move the cursor up to the border.
When I take a screen shot, it automatically makes it save as a .PNG file with is too big to post on the web in most cases. I was wondering if there's a setting I can adjust to make it default save as a .JPEG image. Thank you!Edit; I thought I remembered being able to do such a thing in Tiger somewhere but now I am running Leopard and can't find anything.
I am able to buy a bigger hard drive, but I'm wondering if it should be external or internal.If I bought an internal, what is the best kind to get, and how would I install it?If I got an external, which is the best one to get?
I could have sworn that, somewhere, it's possible to select whether screen grab saves as PNG, JPEG etc. I can't find that option anywhere now. I know you can convert it in Preview, but that's no good. Am I losing my mind??
The service shows running but will not give an IP address to Mac or PC. As the leases are running out on the machines they are not being renewed. I restarted the service and then the server. Then I reset the DHCP Client list.I turned on a computer lab so that they would all grab a new address.... none of them did. I logged on to a computer and told it to renew its DHCP address and nadda. If i assign a static ip they are fine
After having a mac for many years I never knew what grab did. So I opened it up and now I know whatit does. I don't think I will ever have a chance to use it. So I quit it. After I shut the computer down and later opened it up the gab icon was back in the dock. I again quit the application and again it is back in the dock. I don't know what else to do. Can anybody help?
I used to be able to grab a portion of a web page or a document by pressing command shift 4. That no longer works for me, though command shift 3 does work.I can us the Grab app of course but that's a bit more cumbersome. Am using 10.9.3 on a late 2013 iMac.
I was doing several things at once on my iMac (ripping a DVD, on iChat video, etc) and my mac crashed. Now it won't open iTunes. I have a 500 gig music library and hundreds of playlists etc, so I'd hate to have to reinstall iTunes and lose all that. Is that what would happen if I reinstalled iTunes? I have Time Machine hooked up. Could I go into that and grab an iTunes prefs file from before the crash, and put that in the current system folder? Would that be something to try?
for some reason the grab application on my computer is simply not working. i can not take pictures, i've tried to press the shift-option-3, but it is just not doing anything. i'll open grab up and go to 'capture' and then 'screen' and it won't do anything. it won't take a picture at all.
I used GRAB to grab a couple of maps off of mapquest. I couldn't find them afterwards and I discovered they were in dashboard. Wierd??
Now I can't get rid of them. I've tried dragging them to the trash, clicking on them, trying to find them in the Finder. Nada. Nothing. I can't figure out how to get rid of them. When I clicked on one of them the entire machine froze and I had to turn the power off to get it to start up again.
I have a G4 powerPC cube system running Tiger currently and all is working fine except the optical drive, as follows:
I see it in the Hardware>disk burning section clearly showing it is being seen, of course with , Media: No [URL] to this thread, Ettor was able to get it working with some sort of software tweak, which may or not may not apply to my Cube system .
Only thing im not positive about , is if my HD is set to master or slave, but I imagine if it weren't right in combo with the Optical drive, then hardware list would not be showing it at all ?
I am not new to the Grab utility and have used it many times before, but as of just a little while a go I have captured a screen, but when I try and save it the save button is blocked out. I would really appreciate some help with this.
My 4 year old macbook air has become nearly unmanageable when playing on-line bridge. The cursor flits all over the cinema screen tho is stable on the laptop lcd. Also, the wifi drops off intermittantly, and takes upto 2 minutes to refind. The software is original, but up-to-date.
Info: MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.5.8), bluetooth mouse, cinema hd display
So I've just about run out of memory on my MAC, actually, I have! I was able to delete some things and it's already functioning much better. What is taking up so much space are my photos. I have an external drive I would like to move them all to and everything I look up says it's as easy as a drag and drop. The only problem is I'm unable to drag and drop. Nothing at all happens when I try to do that. I've tried it off of Finder with just one item and nothing will move at all.
