I am using Pages '08. This task was pretty simple in MS Word but I can't duplicate it in pages.
I am trying to use bullets with long text. I want the additional lines of text with that bullet to be indented so that all of the text lines up vertically. Here's an example. (The line represents the empty space I would like to have.
This is an issue w/ every word processor I've ever tried to replace Word w/- the only reason I still use it is because it has an easy way to start a new chapter w/ a page number other than one. I am very saddened to see that Pages is also incredibly complicated in what should be a simple task.
I write novels. I prefer to have my chapters as their own document. I am not interested in "master documents" or any of the Open Office "solutions" that were so annoying (and confusing). When starting a new chapter- let's say "Chapter Five"- if Chapter Four ended on page 126, obviously Five should start on 127. I have spent the last hour trying to figure out how to do this, on several different message boards. Can it be done or not? I can't believe MS is the only company in the world to make this an easy task- of all companies to make something "easy". Word is my last piece of ANY MS software- I'd love to be done w/ it, and Pages looks great and is very, very intuitive- but this issue has driven me nuts for years. Again, I am not interested in any solution other than what I'm asking about. If it can't be done, I will continue to use Word, although I've paid for Pages and really feel suckered by this.
I want to insert numbered equations into pages that are centered with Mathtype. In pages there is only an insert Mathtype Equation command, not a full toolbar with different alignment and numbering options as in Word. There seems to be nowhere within Mathtype itself I can see where I can make the equation centered and numbered. Inside Pages I cant center the equation as the option is greyed out and no visible option for numbering.
My screen is continuously flickering ranging from quick lines flashing across various parts of the screen to the entire screen going black for a fraction of a second. This is now happening with more and more frequency. However, I do have a second monitor connected and the flickering is not happening on this screen (A Dell Screen). Is there a certain fix or should I contact Apple Care?
I've just downgraded from my Mac Pro to my 09 Mac Mini, and whilst the transfer has been mainly painless there is one thing that is really irritating me.
I've got an SSD installed so the only noise the Mini makes is the fan, well what it's doing when I'm not doing much with the machine is the fan keeps spinning up for a fraction of a second then slowing back down.
Because it's the only noise it is really irritating. I wouldn't mind if it was spinning all the time, I'd get used to it then, but this constant up and down is really frustrating.
Why does my new mail flashes on for a fraction of a second and then instantly disappear? The new mail cannot be found in Trash. Junk mail filter is activated but the conditions and/or contents are very specific and bear no resemblance to the mail I need to receive.
So, I was using my UB MacBook earlier today. I had a CD in the superdrive. I was shutting down the computer, and all of a sudden, as the screen was going black, the disk in my computer came out half way and the superdrive made a noise. I quickly restarted my computer to see what went wrong. I tried putting the CD back in, it didn't work. You all know how the slot loading superdrives suck in CDs. I now slide the CD in, and it won't get sucked in. In fact, the whole CD won't even go in. A little bit of it still sticks out. So now I'm stuck with a dead superdrive wondering what to do to fix it.
When i insert a dvd it says not supported disc. I copy the movies on my pc and when i open them again it says : The document could not be opened. The movie is not in a format that QuickTime Player understands.You may need to install additional software to open this type of file. i have other programs such as DVD player but it still doesn't open.
Trying to figure out why my new 2010 MBP is getting kernel panics. As a Mac newbie i consulted the manual + internet. Apparently if I hold down the 'D' key whilst booting then the machine should start the AHT, but mine doesn't.I need to insert the Applications DVD in order for the AHT to start.Is there any way I can install the AHT? Was it removed when I reinstalled SL?I also wish that Apple added some more information to the startup screen (like most BIOS based computers) - e.g. press 'C' to boot from CD ROM, press 'D' for AHT etc, because right now there's just no feedback or information for the user :-s
I put in a cd that my computer was unable to read. I tried to eject it using disk utility but it failed. I read that another option was to restart the computer and hold down command, option, o, and f at the same time to open disk firmware to eject it. instead of actually working, my computer froze at the rstart screen, and i have no idea what to do - and i am unable to insert a disc.
When I insert/take out my earphones in/out of the headphone jack it takes OSX about 12 seconds to figure out I have done that and switch audio output settings & set the volume. All those 12 seconds the system seems to be like hung with the colored spinwheel cursor spinning. I have resetted PRAM, and also upgraded 10.5.7 to 10.6.1 but the problem is still here.
I am trying to insert multiple pictures at once into a word document, on office for mac 2011. I am using the 'insert picture' option from the toolbar. Shift-click doesn't work like on a PC, and I have tried a variety of button combinations that don't seem to have any effect! Is there any way around this so I don't have to insert picture files into a word document one at a time?
i have a early 2008 octo mac pro, with it im using a philips 220ws, the problem i'm having is that scrolling a page be it safari, firefox or a pages doc. it seems to jutter along and doesnt move as smooth as my mac book,and when typing into either msn messenger, pages or even text edit letters seem to lag behind what im typing, ok it may only be for a secon and about 2 letters behind burt it gets annoying worse when back spacing. does anyone else have the problem or possible fix? im not using anything more than than the word processor, safari and msn at a time
