I create my own music and sometimes people ask if they can have it on a CD. Since I really do not want people to be able to rip it to their computer's I have denied these requests. However as the demand apparently grows and more people start asking I feel that I would really want to be able to share my music with them, securely. What I would like to do is burn a cd containing my music that people cant rip. I know there will always be some way of doing it, but fore the average computer user preventing mediaplayer/itunes from being able to rip the music will be enough to keep them from doing it.
My daughter's camp musical was burned to DVD and I want to rip it to my iMac. It is NOT copyright protected. I tried to make a disk image with disk utility but I must have used it incorrectly because I can't figure out how to play it.
I just got a copy of Toast Titanium 10 and want to back up my dvds. The first one i tried said that the disc is copy protected. How can i get around this or can I? I just want to have the files so i can watch them on my computer and store them on my hard drive so i can watch them whenever wherever without the disc.
Some free fonts that i have downloaded refuse to be saved as PDF's due to copy protection issues. When downloading new fonts I now look for info on this, but I have downloaded many before and some are annoyingly PDF resistant ! Can I disable all fonts that are copy protected in one go so they won't appear in the Font Toolbar? or alternatively, can I disable the copy protection segment of font? Fonts are for personal use but would like to print them off.
I am new to Apple and have always used windows in the past. I always found it easy to right click and copy and paste in windows, but find it very hard with my mac. I try to highlight words that I want to copy and find in hard to bring up the copy sign. What is the quickest way to C and P on the mac
Greetings -- I'm having trouble copying-and-pasting an image from a PDF. When I use Preview or Skim, I can select a region of a PDF and click "copy" and then paste that image into another program -- HOWEVER, the resolution of the pasted image seems to be fixed and not very good.
In Windows using Acrobat Reader, I would just zoom in and copy a region to get a higher-resolution copied image. However, no matter how I zoom in OS X I don't get higher-res copies.
I found a limited alternative, which is to use Previews 'grab' to select a region of the screen and copy as a tiff. This is essentially a 'print-screen' so that the resolution is as good as the current view. HOWEVER, this is rather limited and annoying because one needs to have the entire image able to fit on screen and because one has grab, then open the resulting file on the desktop, and THEN copy and paste from that new file.
Does anyone have tips on how to grab high res images off a pdf?
I have had my 15" macbook pro for about 6 months now. Amazing labtop...
Now i have learned almost all of the keyboard shortcuts and use them very frequently. The main ones I use are obviously + C followed by + V . However, recently my + C refuses to work! To copy something I have to manually go into the edit menu and select copy. Yet, all of my other keyboard shortcuts, including + V continue to work!
I don't understand. How do I fix this? Keep in mind, this has been going on for about a week so the computer has been turned on and off many times.
My mom bought this mac G4 from a guy and he didn't include a keyboard, so i've been using one of the keyboards we use for our PCs. On a PC simply holding down ctrl + C will copy and holding ctrl + V will paste. I can't do that with a mac. Is there anyway to copy and paste on this mac? I don't know if it's important or not but this mac is considered "vintage" as the guy at the mac store called it, meaning they cant get parts for it and we have to get a Tiger disk to upgrade it any.
As a complete newbie in the mac-world, I am faced with some challenges since everything is (fortunately) not identical to the windows world.
One that is driving me nuts is that I am unable to cut anything in almost all applications and folders. I know the shortcut is what-that-keys-name (ctrl in windows) + X, but it doesn't work, since it is always "greyed" out/inactive.
Could someone explain why that is? I should say that most, not all, of the files were copied over via an external HD from my old windows machine.
My question is about the copy and paste functionality of the Mac while using Safari. For some work I do, I need to copy and paste website content to word documents (for example, in PC, I would select all, copy, and paste into Word). I can do the same thing with Safari and Pages, yet when I am on a site with drop-down menus and have selected the item from the menu and try 'select all, copy and paste' with Safari & Pages, it copies ALL drop down menu options. I only want it to copy the one I've selected. Also, this site allows me to enter free-form text in text boxes, but the select all/copy/paste doesnt pick up the text I've entered either.
Just a real stupid question. Is there a generic way to copy and paste between applications without copying the formatting? If I copy from a website in safari to Excel (for example). The cells in Excel will be formatted exactly the same as on the website including different fonts, and sizes. But often I just want the text, not the formatting. Is there an easy way to do this?
I am getting really pissed off with Mac OS X now... freezing frequently, VLC jumps all the time, loading is slow, and no it's not my iMac (@2.66GHZ) as it run fine with Leopard, but has anyone just suddenly lost the ability to Copy and Paste?
I've read a lot about Keychain but I must be missing something. I want to be able to secure Keychain itself whereby if someone where to get to my Mac while I got up for a second, they wouldn't be able to open Keychain at all without a password. I don't want them to be able to gain access to the program at all without a password. Is that possible?
Is it possible to put a password on a flash drive/eternal drive? I know many companies sell drives that have encryption software built in, but is it possible to just simply password protect. So basically it asks for a password before it shows the content of the drive?
I am switching from blogger to Word Press and am frustrated in Word Press because I can not copy and paste. I can't do it with my command c and v or my mouse. I can highlight with the mouse but then can't paste it anywhere.
Occasionally I can copy a full paragraph and then try and paste it and only the first sentence will paste not the entire thing.
My designer is also on a mac and is not having any problems in my wordpress.
