Aperture :: Library Info Directory Path Contains A File - Where A Folder Was Expected
Cannot reopen my Aperture library (Aperture 2) after successfully exporting a few images to desktop as jpegs and then closing Aperture. Tried to reopen Aperture and got the following message:

Library info directory path contains a file where a folder was expected.

The Aperture Library could not be created at "/Volumes/Data/Pictures/Aperture

Library.aplibrary/Aperture.aplib". Check the path and try again.

No idea what has happened here. Anyone know how to fix?

I have a referenced library on my data drive (4 drive Mac Pro) Data drive/d300 Masters folder/another sub folder/then all my images. Did nothing other than to adjust,crop and export images. Images all still there (can open in PS).

Intel Mac :: Print Out The File Directory?
Years ago, I could print out a list of files in a folder from the finder window. Is there now a workaround utility to do that? I don't want to use screen shots, as the directory is too long and would require several screen shots.

OS X :: How To Dump A Volume Directory Into A Text File
I have several old internal hdds that I have collected over the past 4 years and I would like to be able to see what is on them without actually attaching them to my Mac Pro. Is there a way to generate a text file (better yet, a Finder like graphical representation of the file structure) that would list the directories and files contained on a volume that is normally offline?

OS X :: Print Out Text File With The Contents Of Folder?
This is my first Mac and on my PC I would occasionally email myself a simple list consisting of what programs I have installed so that next time I format (or if something goes wrong) I would know what I had installed. Problem is, with this Mac I have too many quality software to type out by hand so I'm wondering if there is a program or a function built in to OS X (maybe terminal command even, but I'd prefer something visual) to list the contents of a folder and save it to a text file?

OS X Leopard :: File Locked Even Though File Is Unchecked In Get Info
Copied a .psd and .doc file from Mac SL Server share to ~/Public/Drop Box.

I can edit the .doc without issue and save it as is.

When I open the .psd in for example Photoshop CS4 to edit it and try to save any changes, it says that the file is locked. I checked the Get Info information and the file is not locked (unchecked). On the server, the .psd is not locked as well

Snow Leopard :: Cannot Print Highlighted Text From Preview
I am having problems printing annotated pdf file from Preview using Epson Aculaser CX11NF). Specifically, highlighted text prints as a solid color bar with no text showing through at all. However, the same annotated pdf file prints fine from Adobe Reader, which I am trying to stay away from. Also, if the text is highlighted in other applications (MS word, e.g.) and then save as a PDF and open in Preview, then it prints fine, with the text showing correctly.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: My Printer Cannot Print Text
I am having a problem with my Canon Pixma 5200. For some reason it has stopped recognising text. It will print out the test print ok. I can print pictures but no text. I have used different applications, Pages, Word and pdf and although it sounds as though it is printing I end up with a blank sheet. I have a letterhead with my email address on it and having typed a long letter only the email address came out (this was in the same font as the letter but a smaller size).

OS X Leopard :: Making Simple File Directory Of External Drive?
I have an external Firewire drive I use only for storing media. I unplug the drive from the Firewire port when it's not being used. (I prefer not to have the drive plugged in continuously.) However, I would like to know the names of all my files without plugging in the Firewire drive - maybe some kind of directory. How can I make a document listing all of my external files, and view the list on my iMac?

OS X Leopard :: File Kind In Info Window Is Not Correct - How To Fix It
I have a strange problem. I'm getting persistent crashes with Logic Pro which may or may not involve the preference file for the Logic control surface that i use - this file resides in the user preferences folder and is called "", ".cs" , standing for "control surface" I would guess. The weird thing is, if i open the info window for this file, it's kind is listed as "SD2 split", which is a legacy sound file type - "Sound Designer 2", with split left and right channels. This is clearly wrong. SD2 files don't have the suffix .cs, they have the suffix ".sd2" (not surprisingly) and I need to clear up why this is happening so that I can discount this as being one of the reasons for my crashes.

Has anyone ever experienced the finder mistaking one file type for another? Have you figured out a solution, or a reason why it may do this? just to be clear, if i trash the file, the next time I boot logic it creates a new pref file, but it always come back thinking it's a SD2 file, complete with icon.

OS X Leopard :: Finder Info Displays Incorrect File Size?
i am trying to free up space on my startup drive and while doing so discovered that my "Movies" directory, though now empty, shows a file size of 10.23GB!

i've copied the folder contents to another drive and the result is that the same. in essence when i copy the movie files one at a time it amounts to a little over 1GB. but when i copy the whole folder i get 11.64GB which seems to mean that "somewhere" a ghost 10+GB space is hidden.

OS X Leopard :unable To Run Disk Warrior / Crashes During Step 5 Of Rebuilding Directory File
After upgrading my Core 2 Duo MacBook to 10.5.6 with Combo Updater, I have had kernel panic when I try to run Disk Warrior (version 4.1.1) after rebooting from external firewire hard drive (with OS X 10.5.5 on external drive).

That said, I was wondering what other benefits there are to making the switch. The server acts mainly as a file and DHCP server.
