OS X Mavericks :: Messages App Keeps Switching From Show Pictures And Names To Just Show Pictures

Jun 22, 2014

Messages keeps switching the conversation view from "Show Names and Pictures" to just "Show Pictures". This is in the menu under: View > Messages > Show Names and Pictures. I have to change it multiple times a day, including every time I open the app from a closed state.

This is very confusing in group iMessage conversations where all the iMessages are coming from the same grey silhouette icon. The issue is only happening on my Mac mini. It's not happening on my MacBook Air. Both are running Mavericks 10.9.3...So I keep changing the setting here, but it somehow just switches back to Show Pictures only:

OS X Mavericks :: Make Messages App Show Names And Pictures By Default In Groups

Jun 25, 2014

Is there any way to make the Messages app show names and pictures by default in groups? It's kind of annoying to have to set that every time. I'm hoping Yosemite may add this option.

OS X Mavericks :: Get Messages To Show Contact Names Instead Of Phone Numbers In Notifications?

Jun 22, 2014

Originally, notifications from Messages.app would show the contact name sending the message. I'm not sure what caused it to stop, but now all notifications show up as the phone number of the contact. In the actual app, the names look fine. Is there some way to get contact names to show up again?

Jan 25, 2011

As of three days ago, pictures arriving in MacMail have not been showing up. Instead, there are small blue boxes with a question mark inside. Does anyone know what happened or what I did to cause this or what I can do to get the pictures to show up?

OS X :: Since Installing My Mobile Broadband - No Pictures Show Up

Jul 12, 2009

so I dont know why, but I have recently purchased a tmobile mobile broadband stick on an 18 month contract, but for some reason the pictures are not showing up.

For example , when making a thread, all the smilies and stuff have those white question marks in blue boxes.

Apparently the dongle just makes the mac all messed up and go crazy, and is reversible - have had a look on the web , but to no avail.

Applications :: Receive Pictures That Won't Show Up And Small Blue Box?

May 24, 2008

many times I receive pictures that won't show up and I only get a small blue box with a question mark inside. Is the problem the format of the pictures or some other error? I know that on a PC I would get a small red box at times when something wouldn't load properly. Do I need some plugin or is the problem elsewhere?

Applications :: IPhoto 09 - Modified Pictures Show Exclamation Mark?

Sep 13, 2009

Earlier today I copied my iPhoto library file and the iPhoto prefs file to from my Mac Pro to my MacBook (using Chronosync's "mirror" option), for a week away from home.

I've now come to using iPhoto on my MacBook, and noticed that the thumbnails for my modified pictures had reverted to thumbnails of the originals. Clicking on any of these modified images just brings up a large exclamation mark on a grey circle background.

I know that this normally means that iPhoto cannot find the relevant file in the library (usually because someone's been messing around in the library - which I haven't; I took a mirror image), but the odd thing is if I click on "Edit", the image I'm then presented with is the modified image, so it's still there and iPhoto damn well knows it.

I've tried opening iPhoto with alt-opt to get it to rebuild everything, but it hasn't made any difference.

OS X Mavericks :: Show Nicknames Instead Of Full Names In Apps

Sep 2, 2014

Messages and FaceTime in OS X show full names of your contacts. I cannot find a setting to show nicknames instead. I know editing the contacts would do the job. But it would be very dodgy as nobody's first or last name is 'Mum', 'Uncle Bob' or 'Shaggy'. Is there a way to show nicknames instead of full names in Messages and FaceTime?

How can you show a list of contacts (or buddies if you're using another IM/Chat like Yahoo) that is docked in, connected to, separate column or sub-window of the main Chat window...

I looked through all the Menu bar items and preferences and didn't see a single thing.If I activate my Yahoo chat profile/user a floating window pops up, but I can't find any info regarding combining the 2 windows / showing all info in 1 window.

Safari :: Show Icons Instead Of Names In Bookmark Bar?

Apr 9, 2012

Safari shows websites' names in the bookmark bar (instead of icons). They are all grey against a grey background, which is really uninspiring.

On PC it is possible to display websites icons (in their original colour). In fact the default mode is icon. Anyway to to do that on Safari / Mac?

Applications :: Incoming Messages - Pictures Shown As Attachments

May 21, 2009

Some of the emails I receive from friends show a placeholder for an image. The placeholder has the filename (example.jpg) in the top left hand corner. In the centre of the placeholder is a tiny blue square with a question mark. Is there a way to display the pics in the email along with the text. Funny stories are not quite the same without the pics! I can preview & download the images with no problem. So it looks like the images are there, its just that mail doesn't want to display them sometimes?

OS X Mavericks :: Chat Room Names Not Displayed In Messages

Sep 9, 2014

I use messages a lot with chat rooms for work.    In the example shown below, I used to see the Chat Room name in bold on the left side like Drew DuP... and

I used to have the green dot with available in the bottom left corner with my status.  Now all I see on the left hand side is a picture box with no name and the green dot/available is not there.  When I have several different chat rooms going at one time, it's hard to quickly select the one I want.  I have checked through all the preferences I can imagine and nothing has worked.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Sent Messages Don't Show Addresses Or Cc

Apr 2, 2012

I just installed Lion and Mail 5.2. My sent messages aren't showing the addressee or the Cc recipients. I think everything is checked off in View>Message Attributes, although most of the items are grayed out. I tried Classic View from Mail Preferences but it didn't correct this. What setting can I change to be able to see addressees in the Sent Message folder?

Messages I sent from my IMac using my Fuse email account don't show up in my sent messages on my IPad mail app and visa versa. I have icloud setup for both my IMac and IPad. My iphone behaves the same way as my ipad.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Show Exception Messages In Terminal

Jul 6, 2012

I use clang-3.1 in C++11 mode, with -stdlib=libc++, without any IDE, just on the command line.  

My problem is: my c++ code is expected to throw exceptions (I'm testing it), but the Terminal does not print out the exception messages. Instead of my nice exception messages (which I see with clang-3.1 on linux), I have things like: "terminate called throwing an exceptionAbort trap:" 

How should I act on the environment of the code to display those exception messages? I don't want to change the code.

OS X Mavericks :: Where Are Pictures From IPhoto

Dec 5, 2014

Where did all of my pictures from iPhoto go? I can't find them on my Mac? How do I download my pictures from my iPhone? If I can't download pictures from my iPhone then Apple just killed part of the reason I have an iPhone in the first place. Fix it. I want my pictures back. I have no option to download photos from my iPhone to my Mac. Apple you should have given us a replacement program that just transferred everything over. Now what the heck do I do?
