OS X :: How Do I Reverse Stacks Order

my stacks have started displaying backwards � in other words, rather than showing me the most recently added item first, it puts it last; when the stack expands, the �open in finder� option is at the top of the screen, with the most recently added item at the bottom. Instead of the other way around, which is the default. How do I change it back?

Snow Leopard :: Reverse Order Of Stacks List View?
Is there a way to reverse the order when viewing the contents of a stack in list view by date added?

For example, the downloads stack: the default setting puts the most recently added at the top of the list, meaning I have to scroll up to it, rather than at the bottom, where it'd be right there above the icon to click on.

ITunes Mac :: Albums Show Songs In Reverse Order - Play Songs In Reverse Order?
I've experienced the most ridiculous bug in iTunes for several years now which I figured would eventually get fixed but with the release of iTunes 10, it is still there! Clearly this needs to be bought to someone's attention.

In short, my albums in iTunes play backwards. Thats right, they play in REVERSE order.

When I double-click an Album to jump into it, the Album is sorted by reverse order by default. I can click the first column to sort it by normal order (which works) but if i double-click the first track in the list to begin playing, that track plays but then playback stops after the track has finished. If I hit the Next Track button during playback of that song, playback finishes. If I hit "Previous Track", it jumps to Track #2! If I hit Next Track while on Song #2, it jumps back to track #1. Basically Next Track = Previous Track and vice versa. This includes the normal play order too so if I double-click track #5 to start playing, iTunes will play back to track #1 and then finish!

Some albums in my collection are OK, some are broken. I've tried so many different things to fix it including deleting / recreating my library but so far to no avail.

Does anyone else experience this problem?

FWIW, these are just regular .mp3 files with the usual meta-data (tracks, names, artists, disc numbers etc).

Pages 09 :: Reverse Page Numbering - Using Reverse Page Order
1st question: Is there a way to reverse the numbering of pages in a Pages document? For instance, in a 20 page document, is there a way to make the last page be numbered as "page 1" and the first page be numbered "page 20"?

2nd question: is there any way to "flip" the page order of a Pages document? By that, I mean making the last page the actual first page and vice versa, along with a corresponding re-ordering of all the pages therein.

I looked through the Pages manual but found nothing on either topic. I also tried searching the Apple discussion forums here, but found nothing there either.

Side rant: The forum search function is pretty crude. My various searches for "page number" or "page numbering" kept giving results as though I was actually searching for "Pages" and "Numbers." And no matter how what search terms I used, with or without single or double quotes, I kept getting the exact same citations. Curse you, Apple, for giving your applications such generic names.

OS X Leopard :: Setting Reverse Page Order Of PDF
I need to reverse page order of a PDF file. I tried Preview and Automator but couldn't find right option.

Printer driver has a reverse order option but when I did Save As PDF, it doesn't seem to work.

I tried a utility called Moonwalk but it does not run on my system with no reason.

Any solution? I prefer Automator action but any idea will be welcome.

What I'm doing is scanning documents. My scanner has ADF but does not duplex scanning. Automator make it possible to combine odd and even pages but the even pages should be reversed before scanning. If there is an Automator action for it, it will be great.

ITunes Mac :: Reverse Sort Order On New Computer
first off i use iTunes to keep my music I Dj with organized by genere. breaks, dubstep, etc. i recently transferred my playlist from my laptop to my new iMac, and the sorting order has been reversed. i sort my genres by the number column on the left.

The problem is my newer tracks are at the end of the playlists and when i add new tracks it adds them to the opposite end of the playlist.

i dont want to have to manually reverse the playlist one by one because we're talking about thousands of tracks per genre.

IPhoto 11 :: Slide-show Playing Reverse Order
Just upgraded to iPhoto '11 and when I click on an event and choose slideshow, it begins to play in reverse order (most recent first). My main Events homepage is set to sort descending by date and my photos are all ascending by date within the individual events. When I change the main Events view to ascending, it plays in the correct order, however I like my most recent events coming up first...I noticed I can get around this by opening the event and selecting the first photo and then starting slideshow. Is there something I am missing or is this just something I have to get used to?

ITunes Mac :: CD Tracks Being Burned In Reverse Order - How To Set It
There have been previous threads about this, but they were closed without a proper answer, so I'm posting this as a new thread. This post applies to iTunes 9.2.1(5).

I was trying to burn an album to CD. At first, I tried this:

(1) In Library->Music (Albums & Grid view), click the album
(2) click File->New Playlist From Selection
(3) click that play list in "Playlists"
(4) click "Burn Disc"

This resulted in tracks being burned in reverse order (19, 18, 17, ..., 1). Presumably this is a bug in iTunes. It was nothing to do with the sort order arrows next to "Name", "Track", etc. (as many users had suggested).

The fix is to construct the playlist manually:

(1) click File->New Playlist (and rename the "untitled" playlist to the album title)
(2) In Library->Music (Albums & List view), use "Search" to filter, and select the tracks in the album
(3) drag those tracks into the new playlist
(4) click "Burn Disc"

ITunes :: Song Order In Alphabetical Rather Than Correct Album Order (only For Some Albums)?
I have a problem with SOME of my albums in itunes. Some of them ( aprox 20%) are displaying the sogns within an album in an alphabetical order. I do not have "track" in the column header selected. I have tried selecting "track #"but this does not rectify the track names into the original album order. I can not manually enter the track number either in the "track #" field to manually rectify this as iTunes does not allow you do this. It is really frustrating that I have to listen to some of my albums in alpabetical song name order rather than the order the artist wanted me to. See an attached example screenshot for Erykah Badu's Baduizm Album.

Applications :: Can ITunes Have A Play Order That's Different From It's Display Order?
There's something that's been bugging me for ages, literally years:

I've got a whole lot of music, 45 days worth, and I view it by date added and want to keep it that way for a number of reasons.

Problem is, when I want to play an album I have to click on the first track, then switch to album (or artist) display by the end of that track.

The other day I added an album by dragging it into iTunes in the Finder. I noticed that I could start and stop and advance and rewind tracks and it would go in order, from first to last track, even in Date Added mode, so it was visually moving up and down instead of from top to bottom.

Is there secretly a way to view in Date Added but have the next track be the next track on that album? Besides dragging the tracks into iTunes from the Finder I mean.

If anyone has a way to do this, it would seriously improve my life and I would be infinitely grateful.

ITunes :: Registering Original Album, Alphabetical Order Vs Album Order?
I just finished an original rock album, registered it with Gracenote, and it is being sold through itunes and many other places via cdbaby.  The album is also available to download via Dropcards to people that buy or receive a download crad from us in person.  PROBLEM is, when you download the cd, the tracks are in the proper order as on the album when they are in a folder from Dropcards, then you drag them into itunes and they are in ALPHABETICAL order in the RECENTLY ADDED folder!  Under the MUSIC tab, they however are in proper album order.  ??  It's good that the cd is properly registered and is in the right order in peoples main MUSIC list, but when I download albums, the easiest way to find the new album is under RECENTLY ADDED, which in my case would have people clicking on the wrong song to start listening to our record (not the intended feel we wanted to start the record with)

OS X :: Always Allow In Parental Controls - How To Reverse
I have my daughter's accounts setup with parental controls (she's 9). I use the Parental Controls to limit the apps that she has access to so she does not get into trouble with applications that she should not be using.

I was working in my daughter's accounts the other day and I accessed the "System Preferences" application. Because this was one of the applications that I blocked, I was prompted (something to the effect of): This application is blocked by parental controls do you want to "Always Allow access", "Allow Access One Time", "Cancel"

I selected "Always allow" by accident. Now, when I go into parental controls, the "System Preferences" box is still unchecked, indicating that it should not be accessible by my daughter - but, when I go into my daughter's account, she has free/clear access to system preferences. I've tried checking and unchecking the Systems Preferences in parental controls, but it does not block access.

Mac Mini :: Internet Sharing In Reverse?
I have been searching the forums for information regarding what I would like to do without success...posts seem to be from people connecting the Mini to the internet via ethernet and sharing the wireless connection - I sort of want to do the reverse:

I have a 2009 Mini purchased with a Sony Bravia for use in my family room and it works great. I also bought a (now affordable) Sony Blu-Ray player which has an ethernet port on the back for BD Live stuff / this is apparently internet 'extras' available with some Blu-Ray titles. My Mini is connected to my home network via an AirPort Extreme. Is it possible to configure the Mini to share its Wireless connection via the Ethernet port? Or do I need to get the fish-tape back out and run another wire? (though my understanding is BD live stuff at present would likely not be worth the effort!)

Keynote 09 :: Reverse And Repeat Animation Effect?
I have a presentation which has been created on and imported from Powerpoint. It contains an animation of air molecules entering the mouth and traveling to the lungs (its for First Aid Training). On the PPT the animation reverses and repeats itself so the air enters and exits the mouth/ lungs etc like the person is breathing. In keynote the animation only runs once - air enters the lungs, then stops. I'm fairly new to Keynote and its builds/ animation so not sure if I can duplicate the effect on the original PPT.

OS X :: Reverse That Transfer Of Images Into The Waste Bin?
Thinking that the contents of Finder's images folder were merely a history of images accessed, I placed the entire contents (2,020 images) of the folder into the waste bin. I realized my error upon opening my photos folder and seeing that no photos appeared.

Is there a way to reverse that transfer of images into the waste bin?

I couldn't highlight and move all the waste bin contents back into the images folder, so I tried moving just one image from the waste bin into the folder, but without success.

Applications :: How To Reverse The Large Gray Catastrophe
When I first installed iWork the document would be centered on the screen and viewing it in fullscreen mode would have the document centered with black on both sides. While toggleing a few settings to try things out I realized the document was now shoved into the upper-left portion of the window, with large gray areas to the right and below. Also, when I activate fullscreen, the document is on the left half and there is a huge gray box on the right. I am wondering what setting I changed, and how to reverse the large gray catastrophe.

MacBook Pro :: DVI Splitter Working In Reverse?
This is sort of a general question.... But I was wondering if a DVI splitter will work in reverse. Basically what I want to do is use my monitor for my Macbook Pro, and for my PS3, but I want to optimize the picture on both. The best way I can think of doing this (without having to unplug whichever one I am not using at the time) is to plug a DVI splitter into my monitor (coming out of the monitor) and than plugging my Mac into one side, and my PS3 (via HDMI-DVI adapter) into the other side. If I do this, will my monitor recognize whichever one is powered on? Or will I just confuse the crap out of the monitor?
