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?

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 :: 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?

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 :: How To Use Spaces With Full Screen Apps And Windows Effectively

Aug 27, 2014

I've started to use Spaces to manage multiple full screen apps and windows but I'm having problems, especially with the Finder. It seems to make arbitrary choices when opening new windows, often placing new windows floating over fullscreen without switching spaces or opening them in other spaces underneath fullscreen apps so I can't find them. Sometimes it switches to a clean Space whist the window opens in a different Space altogether. I'm running Adobe software- CC '14 applications so I don't know if this causing the problems but most of the issues seem to be with the finder and apps that actually run fullscreenBP  

I'm running a MBP with an external monitor- it's a one monitor set up, not dual so it shouldn't be causing the issues I'm having. I like the idea of spaces running fullscreen apps and windows- the tech has a lot of potential but seems crude and irrational presently.

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?

OS X :: Full List Of Controller Names In Logic Pro?

Apr 9, 2009

When browsing controllers in Logic, only a few show, such as pan and main volume, but none of the rest (like effects depths, portamento etc.). Is there a setting that makes the rest appear in the list? Also, if I import a MIDI file in, it uses sounds from GarageBand, and not the quicktime MIDI sounds. Is there a way to make it take the quicktime, or other GM sounds instead of the GarageBand ones?

Windows On Mac :: Brightness Jumps To Full When Doing A Full Screen Apps

Jan 20, 2010

When I have my brightness at a certain setting and then start playing a game, the brightness jumps to full. When I then press the button for less brightness, it jumps immediately to the setting it was originally.

This also happens whenever I do alt+tab to return to the desktop. So it appears it happens when I do something that requires to switch to full screen mode cause it also happens with other programs.

At normal use, surfing, office,... this problem does not occur. And also it doesn't happen under OS X

Is there a way to view the attached files with their names ? Not open I mean. Sometimes customers find it difficult to save the images I have attached to an email so I would prefer if they could see the names. Like normal files with their titles.

OS X Mavericks :: 10.7.2 Sometimes Places 31 Character Limit On File Names?

Sep 3, 2014

This error notice doesn't make sense, since many of my file names exceed 31 char. This error message pops up when saving documents, esp. web pages. As a consequence, OSX will refuse to let me save the file, until I shorten the name and so remove informative identifying features of the file name. But most of the time, OSX is perfectly happy to save files with names longer than 31 char. How can I get this error notice and block to turn off?

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.

ITunes :: Cannot Show Visualizer In Full Screen

Mar 15, 2010

The title pretty much says it. If I uncheck the "show Visualizer in full screen" box it works, but if I have it checked it won't run the visualizer. Even if I am already running the visualizer then right click and choose show in full screen it just brings me back to the music page. This is realy been baffling me.

This particular system is running Windows 7 64 bit. My Win 7 Laptop running 32bit it works fine. Not sure if this has anything to do with it but I figured it was worth a mention.

OS X :: DVD App Dropping Full Screen When Using Other Apps?

Mar 27, 2009

Triple head system (a 2009 mac pro octo w/2 of the gt120 cards).

I put in a DVD and the dvd app starts automatically. So far so good.

Then I drag the movie window into another, empty screen. So far so good.

Then I make the movie window full-screen. So far so good.

Then I move my mouse back into a DIFFERENT screen and type something into the terminal APP.

At this point the dvd window reverts OUT of full screen. Even though I am not in that window, or interacting with that window in any way.

How do I make this incorrect behavior stop happening ?

OS X :: Snow Leopard And Acrobat Pro (not Show Full Document)

Sep 7, 2009

MacBook 2.4 GHz Dual Core
4GB SDRAM 10.6

Anyone noticed when making Combined pdf files (into single document) that Acrobat Pro only shows the first page, and not the full document. Meaning that one has to manually pull the sidebar down to scroll other pages? My install went perfectly, aside from a few minor glitches, Illustrator and Photoshop (CS4) quit now and again, but removed permissions, restarted and repaired permissions and is a lot more manageable now.
Safari and Mail are almost twice as fast now. Let's see how soon 10.6.1 appears.

MacBook Air :: Keeps Switching Between Desktop And Full Screen Apps By Itself

May 3, 2012

My 11" MacBook Air recently just started randomly switching from full screen apps back to the desktop by itself without me using the 4-fingered swipe to change desktops/apps. I've tried quitting (almost) every app and no matter what app is left open, it keeps sliding from the full screen app back to the desktop. I've rebooted the laptop a good three times and it's also been fully shut down and turned back on twice and it still keeps switching.
