MacBook Air :: Dashboard Widget Causes Error And Can't Get Dashboard To Stay Open?

May 11, 2012

I put "levelwidget" on the dashboard - it is supposed to make a macbook into a Level.  Sounded I regret! The widget is corrupted and now when I try to open the dashboard it immediately closes and gives me an error message "you can't open the application motion because power pc applications are no longer supported" How do I delete this widget so I can open the dashboard. I've tried to look up the file, but can't seem to find dashboard widget files.

OS X :: Widget Disappearing From Dashboard / Day In History Widget Has Become Invisible

My day in history widget has become invisible when I open up the dashboard.. Invisible but not gone because when I click in the icon in the list at the bottom of the page it sort of semi appears on the page but disappears with an effect like ripples in a pond (,which is in it's self a fantastic effect) The cross is still there in the top right corner though.

Any ideas as to what I have cocked up now

Software :: Keep A Widget Active Without Dashboard Tips

Jul 20, 2009

Keep a widget active without Dashboard

The Dashboard in OS X is a convenient tool for accessing quick bits of information or using conversion, translation, or reference utilities among many other tools. Depending on the task at hand, sometimes the requirement to activate Dashboard every time you want to access a widget can be cumbersome, especially since the Dashboard prevents access to other applications while it is open. Luckily, however, there is a way around this.

Dashboard supports the use widgets without activating the Dashboard interface, which basically prevents them from being hidden whenever Dashboard is inactivated. This is done by enabling the developer mode for the application, by entering the following command in the Terminal:

defaults write devmode YES; killall Dock

After this command is run, the Dock will relaunch and Dashboard will be in "Developer" mode. From here, all widgets will behave the same as usual, except now you can select a specific widget to keep on the Desktop by the following procedure:

1. Activate Dashboard.
2. Click and drag a widget.
3. Deactivate Dashboard (while still dragging).
4. Release the mouse.

This will keep the individual widget active while the rest close with Dashboard, and the widget will be kept above all other running applications. To reverse this for a widgets, do the same process in reverse order as follows:

1. Click and drag the Desktop widget.
2. Activate Dashboard.
3. Release the widget.
4. Deactivate Dashboard.

While this is a convenient trick, keep in mind it will keep the widget active and alive, which in some cases can use up system resources. You can check this by using Activity Monitor.

To deactivate developer mode, run the command in the terminal and replace "YES" with "NO".


If you have any other Dashboard tips, post'em here.

App Store :: Dashboard Widget Linkpage Of Apps

Jun 11, 2012

I am looking for a dashboard widget that allows me to arrange my most frequently used mac-applications (Evernote, I-Tunes Podcasts or other locations on my mac) )and web-applications (RSS reader, Radio etc)in one section from which I will be linked to the actual application or webpage? Is there anything alike out there?This would help to stay focused when working on the computer as all the main research places would be accessible from one place.

MacBook Pro :: Will Not Turn On Or Respond To Power Button

Apr 17, 2012

My MacBook pro (15" unibody, non-removable battery) will not turn on. The battery claims to be fully charged. The computer will not respond to the power button in any way. I had turned it on previously by draining the battery completely of any charge (draining power, then pressing and holding down power button for 60 seconds). When this occurred the computer booted up and ran fine. However, when I closed the lid, it turned off immediately, never to return. I'm wondering if this is a problem with the battery, or if it's a problem with the logic board.

OS X Mavericks :: How To Delete Multiple Copies Of A Widget On Dashboard

Aug 25, 2014

I upgraded to Mavericks and one of the widgets that was in the + area has been duplicated on my dashboard and I can't get rid of them. There is no 'manage widgets' button like there was in Snow Leopard. I can't get those little Xs to appear, unless I want to delete the widget entirely.

OS X :: Unable To Copy Calculation Results / Dashboard's Calculator Widget 10.4

Nov 18, 2010

I finally go around to upgrading to 10.5 from 10.4. One thing that struck me was that I could no longer copy to the clipboard the result of the computation in the Dashboard's calculator widget. Something I could do under 10.4

I can paste into it. I can copy/paste/cut in the Stickies application. But I can't copy out of the Calculator.I opened up the .html and .js files for the widget and yes there is a handler for the copy event but its not getting invoked.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Print Button Won't Respond?

Apr 10, 2012

I have a new MacBook Pro at the new job. All software is up-to-date (10.7.3). 

In all apps, when I click on the PRINT button, nothing happens. I opened the PRINT QUEUE and there's no record of anything being sent to the printer. I've gone and done the RESET THE PRINT SYSTEM process. No change. 

In a Windows network environment, printing over network. It seems to not have anything to do with the network, though, as I can see the printers and get them set up, and I get no error message. The PRINT button is just...dead.

Hardware :: Mighty Mouse Not Working Fine / Middle Button Unable To Open Up Dashboard

Dec 19, 2008

I have had my mighty mouse for a couple months and it has worked great on my macbook. Just recently the middle button won't open up the dashboard and the two side buttons go through spaces instead of exposing all windows. In system proferences under mouse and spaces both are set for the middle button to open the dashboard and the side buttons to expose all windows but they don't do that. It could be an easy fix but I don't know what else to try?

Final Cut Pro X :: Reveal Event Of A Clip In Browser?

Nov 30, 2014

I have a Library containing 22 Events which are numbered instead of named. Each event contains Green Screen clips whose thumbnails all look the same. I found the set of (Piece to Camera) clips I want, using a keyword search of the Library - but now I want to create a Compound Clip in the relevant Event so that I can do a rough edit (discard unsuitable and duplicated narrative etc). 

Next, I want to copy the remaining good clips from this Compound to a new Project - in a different Library. I don't want to copy the unwanted clips.My problem is, finding the Event these clips originated from. I can use the disclosure triangle on each Event in turn, but surely there's a better way to find the parent Event of a clip in the browser?

MacBook :: Installed New Superdrive - Worked At First Now No Respond

Jul 6, 2009

So my regular cd-rom/burner died immediately after my warranty was up, so I went on ebay about bought this $65 superdrive:

I took my macbook apart, managed to crack the keyboard in the process (tack on another $50), and eventually swapped out the drive. Before I reassembled everything I booted it up and the drive took my cd and played it on itunes. So, I put it all back together, every little friggin screw, except like 4 and now the drive won't respond. I can hear it spinning when it boots, but when I log in there's nothing. There's a cd in it, and I can't eject it. When I hit eject, nothing happens, not even the little graphic that appears on the screen. I know its still connected because I hear it spin on start up.
