OS X :: Navigations Between Multiple Windows In Multiple Programs?

Jul 11, 2009

I'm new to working on mac, I come from a windows background and I'm having a bit of a problem navigating quickly between multiple windows. Some times you need to open a lot of windows while working, like a couple of firefox windows (with tabs =)), 2 pdf documents, skype, xcode, word documents etc. In Microsoft Windows all your 'windows' are on the task bar and you can click on it to show it or alt tab your way through your windows. In mac if you alt tab it gives you like the root program not the windows and to access the windows you have to choose them from the Windows menu, and I tried expose and its a cool thing =D but still i'm not comfortable navigating with it, so i was wondering if i'm missing sth. Can you tell me what is the way you comfortably handle multiple windows?

OS X :: Multiple Burn Errors With Multiple Programs?

May 7, 2009

I'm on a Powermac G.5 dual 1.8 with an upgraded superdrive running 10.5.6

About 3 days ago I noticed that I couldn't burn a dvd using Roxio's Toast 10. I would receive a medium write error.

I tried a second time with the same results.

I then moved to itunes which I have updated to the fullest version and tried to burn a playlist to cd and also received a medium write error.

Finally I tried to burn the original dvd using disk utility and it almost worked up until it hung on finishing. The funny thing about the run with disk utility was that the disk played in my home dvd player with no problems despite quitting the burn prematurely.

OS X :: Sync Programs On Multiple Macs?

Feb 12, 2010

I've had a MacBook Pro for some time, and am now wanting to sync all my programs (preferably without mobileme).

Many years ago, I was able to network multiple mac computers and have each of those macs draw their information from a common file on the server. For example, the mail program on each computer would reference it's mail file in the library which was an alias that pointed to the actual data file that was stored on the server. This was an easy way of linking the email, so when mail was altered on one computer, the changes were made (in essence) to all computers.

I would like to do that with my iMac and MacBook, but also the music library, iCal, Address Book etc.

Is there a way to set my Time Capsule up as a server to handle something like this?

MacBook Pro :: Merge Multiple Files And Multiple File Types Into A Single PDF?

Jun 20, 2012

Can I merge multiple files, and multiple file types, into a single PDF with my MacBook Pro?, Can I merger multiple files, and multiple file types, into a single PDF with my MacBook Pro? 

I need to combine word docs, .jpgs, .PDFs, .pptx files from multiple sources into a single PDF.  In the past I've used software such as Nuance but I'm wondering if there's something in the MacBook Pro OS or applications that support this function.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Automator Workflow To TAR Multiple Files In A Single Directory Into Multiple TAR Archives In Succession?

Jun 12, 2012

I have set up an automator service that TAR's a folder into an archive for me and it works quite nicely. Idealy however, I would like to be able to highlight several folders, right click and have automator tar each folder into it's own TAR archive, but do it one by one.  


I'm not 100% sure so I guess it would be a good time to verify, is there a problem with having the system try to TAR multiple folders at one time? If it is not a problem then I guess this discussion itself is pointless and I can simple right click on each folder and select "TAR Folder" and just wait until they're all finished. I would think that it would be ideal for the system to do each one individually and not try to do them all at one time.

ITunes :: Setup Multiple Users With Multiple Devices?

Mar 12, 2012

I'm trying to find the easiest solution to our family music situation.  4 users, 4 devices (ipods, ipad, imac, pc laptops), and 4 different musical song interests.  I'm sure there are millions of households that have the same exact situation.  I want to be able to pull up only my musical library, not my kid's music, and then easily synch it to my ipod.  Everyone in the family wants to do this same thing.  I have spent alot of time trying to search the forums/internet and there does not seem to be one "most popular" solution.  I did setup iCloud for each family member using a different Apple ID than my main Apple ID, and I'm happy that ALL the music shows up on my ipad.  But between iCloud, MobileMe, Home Sharing it all gets very confusing.  Some say to setup multiple computer login accounts, and others say to setup 1 playlist for each family member and synch from that playlist.  

I would think 1 itunes account allows you to easily share a purchased song with 4 users, instead of buying songs twice. 

So here are a few of my questions-

1-Is it best to have only 1 itunes account and then synch all devices off of 1 main computer?   

2-Or since we each have iCloud accounts, will they be able to synch their ipods from their own pc laptop? 

3-And when they synch, what is the easiest way to exclude other users music in itunes? (other than unchecking hundreds of artists) 

4-Or setup 4 separate computer login accounts on the imac and then keep 1 itunes account?  If so, how does this work when they open itunes?

ITunes :: Integrate Multiple Devices For Multiple Users?

May 26, 2012

I have a Mac that my wife and I share.  We own and iShuffle, iPod, iTouch and two iPhones.  My wife's iPhone is her own and my iPhone is through work.  We only have one Apple ID and we share our iTunes.  What do I need to do to make all devices work together on iTunes with relative ease?  Do I need to create multiple Apple IDs?  Can we link them together so we don't have to log in and out of iTunes, yet keep it so that what she does with apps / music on her phone doesn't effect what apps / music I move on my phone?

OS X :: Multiple Docks - Use In Multiple Spaces?

Jan 18, 2009

I was thinking that Apple should let us have multiple docks that we use in our multiple spaces. So in one "Space" you could have a "work dock" which has all your applications for school or work such as Safari, iWork/MS Office. Then in another "space" you could have a dock for "Play dock" which has iTunes, Safari, iChat, Photo Booth, iLife or any computer games you have on your Mac.

Windows On Mac :: Booting Options With Multiple Windows Partitioning

Jul 14, 2009

I have Windows Xp and Windows 7 on two different hard drives in my Mac Pro. Windows 7 had been working fine, but I needed XP to run some older programs that 7 couldn't do. I have been working in XP some time now but when I try to boot from the Windows 7 drive it just reverts to the XP one. Even when I click on the Windows 7 drive to make it the start up drive it still goes to XP. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

OS X :: Cannot Open Multiple Windows

Aug 27, 2008

I have a user that seems to have a broken X11 in Tiger. She is unable to open multiple xterm windows by pressing the key combination or selecting from the menu. When she closes the window, she cannot open another without closing the program and reopening. I've tried creating a .xinitrc with the path to /usr/X11R6/bin, but that then wouldn't even open any windows.

Applications :: Can Timemachine Backup Multiple Drives To Multiple Drives?

May 21, 2009

I have searched but I can't seem to find an answer to this question...

I have 4 x 500MB drives in my Mac Pro and 4 x 500MB external firewire drives.

Currently I use Carbon Copy Cloner to clone each internal drive to it's respective backup. ie Drive 1 > Backup 1, Drive 2 > Backup 2 etc

Is it possible to use Timemachine in a similar way? so that each internal drive has it's own corresponding Timemachine backup?

Windows On Mac :: Multiple Partitions With Boot Camp

May 8, 2006

I am not sure if there is anything I can do, but here is my situation.Boot Camp will not install if my main hard drive which contains OSX has more than 1 partition on it. I have previously successfully installed boot camp before but recently have reformated and repartitioned my drive into multiple sections, One for the OSX and one for Multimedia, Movies Music and pics.Now Boot camp is telling me, Boot Camp cannot install because your primary drive is partitioned.So My prediciment is this. I want boot camp, because I need windows for games... no problem. However I need an extra OSX Journaled Partition for my Music and stuff, because I do not want this on my OSX partition. what can I do? before I reformat again

Applications :: Unable To Use Multiple Safari Windows

Now that I got my 24" LCD that apparently can't be pivot from landscape to portrait mode in OSX, I would like to at least be able to view two web pages side by side, since the 24" display is wide enough for this. Alas, I don't see a way of opening a second instance of Safari (the way you can do it with IE Explorer in Windows side).

I used to be able to scroll the pointer down to the lower right hand side of the screen to display the multiple Internet Explorer windows that i had open. Now, for some reason it wont work and the only way to do so is to minimize each screen till i find the right one. I am not sure what, if anything, i have done to change this setting.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Multiple Application Windows Cannot Be Displayed At Once

May 24, 2012

Since installing Lion (currently 10.7.4) on my home iMac, I've been unable to have windows for more than one application appear at one time. For the most part, applications run just fine. But say I have Adobe Illustrator open and want to drag an image from a folder in Finder into my document. The second I select Finder from the Dock, Illustrator disappears. Click back on Illustrator from the dock, and it reappears, but now my Finder window has gone AWOL. Seems like it's all still there, just becomes invisible.

At no time will it display more than one application. Two windows of the same application? But any time I switch between apps, it shows only the most recently selected app, regardless of what's actually running on my machine. Makes dragging and dropping from one app to another near impossible.Quitting and restarting does nothing. Even a fresh install of Lion did nothing. I find it hard to imagine this could be a hardware issue though.

My iMac works perfectly otherwise. As for my current settings, I have no desktops/spaces setup (aside from the one), and have turned off all associated features for Mission Control in the System Preferences - more out of an attempt to simplify in the hopes that it would work than out of any dislike for the features. The iMac itself is a 20-inch, early 2008 with 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo and 4 GB SDRAM.

Mac Pro :: Utilizing Multiple Processors For Games Under Windows Bootcamp

Oct 6, 2010

I've just established that my copy of Windows 7 home premium only uses one of my two duel core processors on my 1,1 mac pro. I need to upgrade to Windows 7 professional for it to use the other processor. I only use windows for games and would like to know if my system is/will become CPU bound unless I upgrade to Windows 7 professional. I've run a test running Portal and coming out and looking at the processor history in Resource Monitor and both my cores on the single processor it sees have been maxed out while running the game. I'm currently using one of the new Apple 5770 graphics cards but am thinking about buying another one to run under cross fire. However, if I do this it looks like I will need more CPU power to make use of it so I will have to upgrade to Windows 7 Professional. My concern is will the games use the 2 processors if I upgrade. I would hate to spend �130 on Windows 7 professional upgrade only to find that games don't use the extra processor anyway.

Windows On Mac :: Can Install Boot Camp For Multiple Users

Mar 21, 2009

I created 4 profiles/users in OS X; when I installed Boot Camp, it was in my wife's profile (she will be the primary user). My son went into his profile last night to use Garageband and I noticed there was no Windows disk on his desktop, nor was the Fusion icon on his dock.

So, can you/should you install Boot Camp for more than 1 user in OS X?
