OS X :: AFP Share File Rename Loses Focus?

Apr 14, 2009

I have an AFP share on my nas box containing many files. My problem is that when I try and to rename files by hitting enter, the finder window refreshes and I lose focus of the file rename. This seems to be happening when finder is refreshing the thumbnails for each file's icon.

How can I stop this very frustrating behavior. This doesn't happen when not using AFP.

Applications :: ITunes Loses Focus / Changes Songs While Trying To Edit Song?

Jun 12, 2010

we all know that iTunes is a worthless turd, but maybe someone can help me figure something out before I get to the point of chucking my brand new MacBook Pro through the window.

When I go to rename a track or artist in this awful, awful software it almost always kicks me out of the renaming process, and since I'm merrily typing long it takes me to the first song in the library that starts with whatever letter I just happened to press.


I'm typing in "Bob Sinclar". I get through Bob and the space OK, but then as I'm about to his the S it kicks me out of the renaming process, I hit S, and the iTurd takes me to, say the first State of Shock song in my library.

It does this every! damned! time!

OS X :: Moving Focus Using The Keyboard Options?

Oct 9, 2007

If I have a dialog box on screen with multiple options such as "Yes" and "No" and "No" is the default option selected (it's blue) but I want to select "Yes" without using my mouse how would I do that? Tapping the left and right arrow keys does not move the focus like it does in Windows.

Software :: Windows Loose Focus On Their Own?

Feb 6, 2009

On my single 1.8 G5 PPC 10.4.11 about every 90 seconds my desktop goes blank and the current application window looses focus. It just started doing it so I did a full virus scan and found nothing. It doesn't matter if I am in the middle of making a selection or typing in doc and it stops if I logout and login as root--but then I keep getting keychain dialogs.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Tab To Move Keyboard Focus

Mar 9, 2012

I've been looking around for quite some time and cannot find a solution for my annoying problem: I cannot keep the 'Tab to move keyboard focus between: All controls' to stick. I am able to change the keyboard setting so that the Tab key changes keyboard focus through settings -> keyboard -> keyboard shortcuts -> full keyboard access and the simple control+F7 until I log out, reboot or power cycle.  

I have reset all of my keyboard settings to default and I have gone so far as to create a new user with admin priviledges but the problem persists.

Safari :: No Keyboard Focus On New Window?

Mar 20, 2012

At some point recently (I don't recall precisely when) on two different computers under my control (both iMacs: work 10.6.8 and home 10.7.3) I now find that when I open Safari the new Safari window has no keyboard focus. I must tab twice to get keyboard focus on the address bar. However on a third machine I use (MacBook Air 10.7.3) when I open a new Safari window the keyboard focus is in the address bar (as I expect and as it has always been). I've poked around in the Preferences in Safari and System Preferences: Keyboard and Universal Access Keyboard but can't find any kind of setting that might control this behavior (lack of keyboard focus on new window).why this is occuring and how to restore keyboard focus to the address bar on opening a new Safari window?

Mac :: Apple Broadens Focus Of OS X 10.5.8 In New Beta Version

Jun 19, 2009

While the first two beta releases of Apple's Mac OS X 10.5.8 Leopard update signaled a focus on underlying service technologies, a third pre-release made available to developers overnight expands upon those areas to include several forward-facing apps and additional frameworks. People familiar with the beta, labeled Mac OS X 10.5.8 build 9L16, say the Mac maker has for the time being tabled its focus on components such as Bluetooth, Automator, graphics drivers, iDisk syncing, Spotlight and Sync services.

Software :: Who Grabbed The Focus - Name In The Menu Bar Does Not Change

Aug 13, 2009

I started having a weird problem about two weeks ago. I'm working in an application (any application, I think) when suddenly the focus is gone. That is, any keystroke draws a beep. If I single-click in the window, life goes on normally. When this happens, the name in the menu bar does not change.

MacBook :: Shift Keys Change Focus?

Apr 11, 2012

I have a MacBook running OSX10.6. Someone else was using it the other day and now whenever I hit my Shift key, it changes the focus to either the task bar or the other open app(s). I have reset the keyboard settings in System Preferences, tried another keyboard and still have the same issue. I created a new user account and the Shift key functions properly in the new profile. where else to look to restore the normal behavior?

Mac Pro :: Graphics Card - Speed Up Photo Loading In Focus?

Dec 4, 2010

When I load a photo from a thumbnail in iPhoto the photo loads a version that is slightly blurry, then after about 5-10 seconds it jumps into focus. I am using a 2006 24inch iMac and the graphics card only has 256k of memory.

Is the delay in focus a function of iPhoto or is it because I have an older graphics card? I'm asking because I want to buy a newer computer (probably a Mac Pro) and am wondering if a faster graphics card will speed up the photo loading.

Software :: IWeb 1.1.2 - Website Appearing Slightly Out Of Focus

Apr 30, 2010

I created my website with iWeb 1.1.2 & have had absolutely no issues with it from running Tiger right through to Snow Leopard (10.6.2) which I am running at present. However, in the past couple of days, I have noticed a few strange issues with a few of the images...they appear to be slightly out of focus...not only on photographs but also on parts of my website whereby I have added text & these are then saved as PNG files. I haven't changed any preferences whatsoever & everything appears as it should within iWeb itself.

The issue is only occurring once I have published to a folder. I've emptied the Cache in my Browser but the issue is still there. I've added a link below to an image which shows the problem I am having. The top & bottom appear as it should however the centre appears very soft. It doesn't appear like this within iWeb, only once I publish the files. [URL] Would it be worth deleting the preference file for iWeb, & then relaunching the application?

Hardware :: Amazon Unveils 9.7 - Inch Kindle DX With Focus On Education

May 6, 2009

Amazon on Tuesday introduced the Kindle DX, a new multi-purpose version of its digital eBook reader that, thanks to a 2.5 times larger screen, is garnering the support of several universities, newspapers and textbook publishers who've announce pilot programs around the device. Thinner than most magazines at just over a third of an inch, the $489 Kindle DX sports a large 9.7-inch e-ink paper display with 16 shades of gray, making it ideal for newspapers, magazines, and graphic-rich textbooks that include an assortment of images, tables, charts, and equations.

Also new to the DX model is an Auto-Rotation feature for displaying content in landscape or portrait mode, and a built-in PDF reader leveraging Adobe Reader Mobile technology. Like other types of documents on Kindle, users can email their PDF format documents to their Kindle email address or move them over using a USB connection. Each Kindle DX ships with 3.3 GB of memory, which Amazon says is sufficient for storing up to 3,500 books, or more than double that of the Kindle 2 (unboxing, review). The online bookseller will also automatically back up a copy of every Kindle book purchased so users can wirelessly re-download titles from their library at any time....................

OS X :: Why Doesn't Paging Move Focus Of Selected Item In List?

Aug 23, 2009

Maybe I'm missing something...

Say I'm viewing the contents of a folder containing a 1,000 files in list mode. I can "page" through the list and all the items scroll but the selected item doesn't change. I have to "mouse" to the item I want when it comes into view.

Is this by design?

MacBook Air :: Does AIR 11 Loses Hinge?

Oct 24, 2010

I just unboxed this beauty. This is my first mac ever and I love it so far. However one thing I noticed straight out of the box was how loose the hinges are. The screen tilts if I move the macbook air to a 90 degree angle. I've own quite a few laptops but this is the first one with a loose hinge straight out of the box. Is this normal or should I be meeting with a nerd?

MacBook Air :: Loses All Computer Settings?

Nov 20, 2010

I just got my 13" (4/128) MacBook Air yesterday, and I decided to use Migration Assistant instead of Setup Assistant - because I didn't want all of my applications to be put on the new Air.

Well, Migration Assistant screwed everything up. I ended having to reinstall iWork (it wouldn't recognize it), had to reset defaults, had to pull off a few files directly from Time Machine, etc.

Well I've got almost everything back to normal - except my Safari bookmarks!

Prior to all of this, I thought I could restore to factory settings using the little Apple stick - but even that was a hassle. It would only reinstall my OS, but it wouldn't erase and install the drive. I could get into Disk Utility, but the "Erase" button was "grayed" out...

Frustrated... if I could just get the Safari bookmarks somehow OR if someone could properly show me how to restore to factory settings (main issue is not being able to Erase and Install)...

IMac :: How To Fix Hinge Loses On 2010 I7?

Aug 11, 2010

I searched the forums but can't seem to find a definitive answer in regards to having a loose hinge on the i7.

I picked mine up yesterday and it seems a little too lose for my liking. It stays in place when it is not touched, but if you push with one finger on the bottom it will switch quite easily.

Is this how they make the hinges now or is mine too loose and should be exhanged? I don't seem to have any problems with dead pixels/yellow screen/noise and would hate to exchange it.

Hardware :: Time Capsule Repeatedly Loses WAN IP?

Jan 4, 2011

Problem with Time Capsule acting as a router for home Internet connection. It would lose it's WAN IP address after 5-10 minutes, sometimes longer. Rebooting the Time Capsule would fix it temporarily. Also, renewing the DHCP lease for the Time Capsule using the Airport Utility would bring it back instantly. It's a 500 GB Time Capsule and has 7.4.2 firmware. An update check says that that's the latest. I tried a factory settings reset. At first I thought it helped because it lasted more than 20 minutes afterward. But then did the same thing again.

Some background: Time Capsule faithfully did it's duty at another home for extended period of time without any known issues. At old home it was connected to a different cable modem - an RCA I believe. At the new home it's connected to an Arris modem that provides data and voice. For the first three or four hours it worked without issue, then it started losing it's connection (right about the time I was leaving )

The cable company tech had me believing that I had a glitchy Time Capsule. Now I think I have either a:
- incompatibility between the Time Capsule and the new Arris Telephony cable modem
- network conflict on the cable company's side of things. The Time Capsule was running connected to a different modem at a different address (and account, I believe).
- final choice is a glitchy Time Capsule.

(I first wrote this post on 9/30/10, at that time firmware 7.4.2 was current, now 7.5.2 is latest. I'm attempting to recreate the problem now. This happened at a client's home with their setup - I'm now hooking it up as my main router and using the same Arris Telephony modem. It's been running with my Arris Telephony modem on my Internet connection for over twelve hours without issue).

Applications :: Keynote 3 (iWork 06) Loses Transitions?

Jan 17, 2006

I just installed iWork 06 but it seems although I have gained a bunch of new transitions I have lost several, and some of them I used often!

Why is this? And is there a way to add the old removed ones from Keynote 2 into keynote 3?

It appears to be:
One of the Mosaic Flips
Falling tiles
Motion Dissolve

Those were good transitions!

And some of the text transitions are lost too. One odd thing I noticed is that if i bring in one of the old Keynote files with the old transitions it adds that old transition to the list!

Below is an attachment of Keynote 2 and 3 transition lists
