Applications :: Tuning Volume Increments?

Oct 20, 2010

I know that if you hold down Option + Shift, it allows you to fine tune the volume. This is absolutely awesome, and I'd actually love if this was the default behaviour. I was so sure that I had come across an app that would do this, but I can't seem to find it anymore. Hopefully it wasn't just my memory playing tricks. Anyone know of an app or script that'll do this?

OS X Technologies :: Create A Log File?

Apr 24, 2012

Been up for a while trying to figure this out with no luck. I created an app that will uninstall a program and all of it's files. 

example try                    do shell script "rm -rf /Applications/TestFakeApp"           end try     try                    do shell script "rm -rf /Applications/TestFakeApp2"           end try     try                    do shell script "rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.FakeTestApp.plist"           end try          try                    do shell script "rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.FakeTestApp2.plist" end try          try                    do shell script "rm -rf ~/Library/Logs/FakeTestApp*"           end try          try                    do shell script "rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/FakeTestApp" end try 

there are alot more paths to remove but this is just a few for example 

I want to be able to create a log.txt file on the desktop to show what has been removed and or what could not be removed. 

I then tried by creating a text document by using 

do shell script "touch ~/Desktop/test.txt" tell application "Finder" open file ((path to desktop folder as text) & "test.txt") using ((path to applications folder as text) & "TextEdit.app")end tell 

but I don't know what to do next. 

1. Have it check for each file to see if it was deleted or not

2. add it into the test.txt file

3. save the file once done

Applications :: Adding Page Number To PDF File

Mar 3, 2009

I've created a huge PDF file that I need to add page numbers to. The pages are numbered separately because the entire pdf file is an aggregation of several page numbering documents. But, I need a Master Page number that I can use to create a table of contents for the big PDF file. Anyone have any ideas that are not going to cost me a fortune? I've found several free programs that do that for Windows XP, but I need to be able to do this in OS X (Leopard) without spending a bunch of cash for software I don't need. like a full version of Adobe. I've created the PDF file using Preview by dropping in the pages I need.

OS X Technologies :: Folder Action Does Not Run On SECOND File Only

Mar 7, 2012

Does any one know of a bug or a log for folder scripts that do not run? I am trying to get a basic folder script (to replace %20 in the file name) of the Downloads folder.

When downloading multiple files (two or more) it runs only on the first file, successfully without error, and then never runs on the second file. If I move both of the files out of the Downloads folder and move it back it, the one file that does not get the folder action now does and everything is peachy.So it is not that the folder action is not scripted properly. It is just that the folder does not catch the second file download - guess maybe too fast? Has any one seen this or have this bug?

OS X Technologies :: It Loads All File In The Folder When Tried Ro Move One

May 29, 2012

I have a folder action set up to open movie files in a conversion app but every time I add a new file it loads all the files in the folder.  How can i exclude a file that has already been opened by the folder action.  I can't move the file due to queing up moves for conversion if the file is moved after it is opened the the program doesn't know where to look for it. Ive tried Filter finder items by last opened and set it as today but that did not work. It opened nothing.  May I could set it up to know if the file has been there longer then 5 min that the folder action should not open it.

OS X Technologies :: Does The Exclusion Of A File Or Directory Remove Any Existing

Mar 15, 2012

Does the exclusion of a file or directory remove any existing, already backed up versions of that file or directory from TimeMachine? I have a large file I don't want backed up every time I connect to my backup drive.  It's 50GB+. I rarely touch the file, and when I do, I don't use it for anything that needs to be saved, it is a historical only version of my Parallels from an older Microsoft OS.  I occasionally need to open it to just look at something, but never 'do' anything with it. 

I want to exclude it, but don't want any older version of the file to be removed from backup. Does anyone know if exclusions are retroactive into the TimeMachine database?  Given this is 50GB+, trying it to find out is a quite slow process.

OS X Technologies :: Add Account Privileges To A Newly Created File?

Jun 11, 2012

I have multipe accounts on my Mac.  Two of them need to share certain files, but not with everyone else so I can't use the Shared folder.  When I create a new text file with AppleScript it has default ownership to the account that created it, but I need to give read & write privilages to it to the other account as well.  I can do this manually, but there are lots of files sometimes.  One trick I've found is to reset privilages from the next higher folder.  This saves time, but sometimes I forget.  Also when I do this it causes Time Machine to think all the files in that folder have been updated.  If the folder is large it may cause Time Machine to purge a old backup version.  What I'd like to do is find some AppleScript code I can use to add user "A" with read & write access to the permissions of a new file at the time my AppleScript creates that file.

OS X Yosemite :: Disk Utility - Incorrect Number Of File Links Error

Dec 1, 2014

I recently ran a ‘verify’ scan in Disk Utility as a precaution after Word crashed. An ‘incorrect number of file links’ error message showed up, as well as a prompt to repair this using Disk Utility from the Recovery HD. However, when I do a scan from the Recovery HD version of Disk Utility, no error messages or repair prompts appear.

My questions… Is this something to be concerned about? How can it be fixed? Would it be best to do a clean install of OSX? I only lost a little bit of data so I was pretty lucky.

MacBook Pro :: Number Keys On Keyboard Are Malfunctioning Besides Number 0

Sep 2, 2014

-OSx 
-Processor: 2.4 GHz Intel Core i5
-Memory 4GB 

Only the number keys on my keyboard are malfunctioning besides the number 0.  For example when I press 1 it appears as q1.  When I press 2 it appears as w2.   

I am not sure if I accidentally pressed something on my keyboard that has changed the functioning of my number keys. I've tried fidgeting with the keyboard settings in System Preferences and holding down the f6 key but nothing has worked.

Does the logic board serial number match the computer serial number?

results in a picture (picture2.jpg) that is the size of the sum of picture.jpg and hidden.rtf.zip. I presume this means that I am successfully putting hidden into the picture.I can open picture2.jpg, but I can't figure out a way to access the hidden zip.

OS X :: Searching My Mac For A Serial Number?

Feb 6, 2009

I recently bought Rapidweaver and received the package today. I installed it, entered all the pertinent information including my email and the serial number, registered, and then went upstairs for lunch. Came back down and found that my cute little golden retriever had decided that the envelope, not the box, and not the little booklet... was tasty, so she ate it. I'm left with some cellophane and tiny wet pieces of white paper and no serial number! The software was installed and it is working just fine, and when I "unlocked" or activated it, it said OK, everything is done. Fortunately, the CD was in the Mac while Daisy had some fun.

I don't need to reinstall... but unlike other software (or on a PC in the registry) where you can look in the "about" section and see your serial number, the SN is not shown in the about window. I'm not about to phone the UK over this, but just for security's sake, I'd like to know how to retrieve the serial number on my mac so I can write it down inside the booklet and put it up high.
