Applications :: Word 2008 Ignore/ignore All Spell Check?

Nov 17, 2009

When I am running spellcheck, sometimes I need to click on "ignore" and sometimes on "ignore all". If I click on "ignore" the first time and then move on to the second queried word "ignore" doesn't work. I have to click on "ignore all". Then the third time "ignore all" doesn't work and then I click on "ignore". So basically I have to alternate between the two options all of the time.

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.

Applications :: Is There A Way Can Get The Pics Into Pre Existing Folders

Sep 6, 2010

So I have moved all of my photos from my pc over to my mac harddrive. When I look for the pictures in Finder it uses Preview to open the pictures. To see them in iPhoto I guess I have to import all of the pictures? Is that correct? If I do this the pics will be on my machine twice?

Now let's say I have new pics on a camera that i'm trying to get on my machine. Is the only way to import into iPhoto or is there a way I can get the pics into my pre-existing folders?

Applications :: ITunes Library - To Replace Existing Folders'

Aug 13, 2010

I copied my cousin's itunes music folder onto my external hard drive so I could add it to my own.

I dragged the artists into my iTunes music folder.

I was asked whether I wanted to replace existing folders... e.g we both had "Arctic Monkeys" folders.

I CLICKED REPACE ALL... What a mistake.

I'm very much into music and I have lots of songs, whereas my cousin only had a small library.

Now, my "Arctic Monkeys" folder only has a few songs in that she had, and i've lost loads from my library from many artists that both of us had.

OS X Technologies :: Create Folders And Sort Applescript?

Mar 15, 2012

I am using a script that Jacques Rioux kindly helped me out with a couple days ago. I altered his script a little to complete a different task I needed to create a shortcut for. The script below first creates two folders (TIFF & JPEG) and then it sorts files with an extension .tif into the 'TIFF' folder and files with the extension .jpg into the folder named 'JPEG'. This works great but I would like the script to effect multiple folders. Can anyone help me add to the script so when you click it, a prompt will pop up allowing you to choose multiple folders to apply the script too? As of now it will only work on one folder at a time.

OS X Technologies :: AppleScript - Count Only Visible Folders

Jun 21, 2012

How can one count only visible folders (one level down only) in the Finder? 

The following script works fine except that it appears to count some invisible folders eg: when the selection is the startup disk the count is 6 although the actual number of visible folders is only 4. tell application "Finder"          set vSelection to selection as alias  count every folder of folder vSelectionend tell 

I have tried various ideas such as "whose visible is true" but to no avail. 

Assuming it is possible to perform a successful visible folder count, how could one then move between these visible folders in the Finder prior to performing a command (eg: open)?

OS X Technologies :: Listing Folders In Apple-script Popup?

May 30, 2012

im looking for a more elegant way to list of folders in a popup for users to select at the beginning of my script and use as a path variable.the path i need to filter through to make the list is similar to the following: /Volumes/Network Drive/A/Client Name(s) starting with A//Volumes/Network Drive/B/Client Name(s) starting with B/ other folders will be created in the folder they select.  The complications:  All the folders i want to list are divided into folders labelled with each letter of the alphabet.Also there could potentially be hundreds of these folders once consolidated to a list The current script lists the entire file path in the popup. I want the entire path to be set as the variable but just the folder name to be listed in the popup These are the scrips i have started with but would love a better way to combine and clean up.  

(*set mainList to {"A", "B", "C", "D", "E", "F", "G", "H", "I", "J", "K", "L", "M", "N", "O", "P", "Q", "R", "S", "T", "U", "V", "W", "XYZ"}choose from list mainList with prompt "Choose Client"set listchoice to result as text*)set the_folder to (path to desktop) as stringset with_subfolders to trueset inc_folders to true set the_files to get_folder_list(the_folder, with_subfolders, inc_folders)return the_files on get_folder_list(the_folder, with_subfolders, inc_folders)          set the_files to {}

OS X :: Little Checkbox Said Ignore Permissions

Aug 4, 2009

I had a folder (called "Other") with read and write access for Joseph (Me), everyone, (unknown), and Joseph (Me, again), but for some reason I couldn't write to the folder - I only had read access even though three forms of me had read and write. I tried changing the permissions of the parent folder to read and write (which they already were for everyone, but I added my account too for the hell of it) and then applying it to the enclosed items, but that just added "wheel" to the Repairing permissions did nothing, I ended up just setting my entire Macintosh HD to read and write for everyone and a few other people, then applying to enclosed items. That worked, but then for some reason it changed my external hard drive's permissions to "Custom" for Me, Me, unknown, and everyone. I can't access my external at all now, and nothing happens when I try to change its permissions. There was a little checkbox that said "Ignore permissions"

OS X V10.7 Lion :: "Ignore Ownership" Setting Lost After Restart?

Jun 1, 2012

I'm using Lion 10.7.4 with an external Drive on which I've set a partition to store my iPhoto and iTunes Libraries. I called this volume "Media" and checked "ignore ownership ont his volume" as I wanted to share these libraries between my user and my wife's one.Until a few days ago everything ran quite fine, then I noticed I had read errors running my rsync backup. In fact, "ignore ownership" was off, and is reset to off upon each reboot  

I haven't searched if there's a way to enable it by using a command line tool, which could be an acceptable workaround by launching this command line at each boot, but I'd be interested in knowing why this is happening, I could try to move all data to another partition forth and back and recreating the volume in between, but as I'm talking about 100+ GB I'd be glad if there's another way?

OS X :: Unable To Access Folders / Folders Are Locked After Transferring Files From External Hd

Aug 28, 2009

I bought a Seagate Free Agent Go Flex External drive. I transferred all my files from my previous external HD. When I went to access my folders on my external HD, the folders are all locked, with Sharing and Permission section in the Information "Everyone: Read" only! I can't change any of the information or move things! All of them are locked and "read only." I know how to change it, but only manually, individually. I have several hundreds of folders and I don't want to manually change all of them to "Read & Write." Is their a way to let me re-set the folders to "Read & Write" easily??

Software :: Adding Bookmarks And New Folders Under Multi-level Safari Folders?

Jan 20, 2004

I have a question for the the Safari geeks out here (1.1.1 version 100.1, running on MacOSX 10.3.2): I have imported my bookmarks from a Mozilla install on a Linux box, based on a hint I found here with the debug options (worked great!!!), and I have the following questions related to adding a new bookmark (based on the fact that my bookmarks are organized in multi-level folders, e.g. OperatingSystems->Linux->Security->Firewall, etc.):

- when opening Bookmarks->Add bookmark ..., how could I possibly collapse all the levels, so that I can easily scroll, and open/drill down into the appropriate level of bookmarks, without having to scroll thrrough all (by default) expanded levels? ... especially critical as some sub-categories may match names, with different higher level bookmarks, thus having to make sure I am where I want to be (e.g. I have a Security folder under OS->Mac, as I have one under OS->Linux, and I have to remember which one I am under, if the "parent" is out of the scrolling window);

- is there any easy way to add a new "level/folder", through Bookmarks->Add bookmark, at the time of salvaging a new one, vs. having to open the Bookmarks in a new window, adding the folder, then returning to add the new bookmark?

I hope the above makes sense ... I am probably hopeful - also - that people may have already run into this before

ICloud :: Cannot Delete Folders/sub-folders In It
