Jul 4, 2012

When I press sysmbols on keys the symbols appear differently and not how it is printed on the keypad, please advise where I can go to change the settings.  I have given you examples below so my question is clearer.Shift 4 gives $ instead of Euro sign, actually I would prefer the £ sign which is shift 3 @ appears when pressing shift 2 and not the sign which has this displayed

OS X :: Reassigning Alt (Option) Keys For Typing Symbols

Jan 7, 2011

On my old windows PC, in word I used to be able to type symbols just as if I was typing letters. Not randomly, I custom assigned each symbol I used a lot to each letter. I type a lot of symbols in my scientific notes. If I clicked control shift: ABD where alpha beta delta, 1-9 was subscript 1-9 (for chemical formulas), and I had a load more. I used the so often I could touch type them just like any other letter.

I want to do the same thing on my mac, so I can type the symbols. I have noticed that the alt key does bring up the symbols, but they are very strange and not very useful. I dont need to type a "grave" symbol very often, but alpha all the time (but there is no alpha). And they aren't assigned to my logical letter (beta to B). How do I reassign the alt keys to my symbol, surely there is an easy way, but I have looked and not found one.

Software :: Won't Find Ordinal Number Symbols

Sep 18, 2008

I am aghast at the plethora of special characters available in OS X. However, I cannot seem to locate the ordinal number symbols. I would like to find a single character that would make a cardinal number be an ordinal number. For example, 3rd, 4th, 5th, etc. I would like them, obviously, to be superscript and small but not lilliputian. I would like these characters to be compatible with the Address Book and also with my iPhone. I tried typing it out in Microsoft Word but when I cut and pasted into address book it lost the superscript quality.

I've been using itunes for a while and it just messed my entire music library up! I've found something that is more Winamp style for me named "Cog".

How can I disable the Itunes link to it? I want it to control only Cog player.

MacBook Pro :: Scandinavian Keyboard - No Symbols

May 13, 2010

I just got my first MBP , 15inch AG, on Tuesday. Nice enough machine, getting used to the idiosyncrasies of OS X (like the useless Finder), but fair enough. There is one complete mess up on Apple�s part though: There are no | [ ] { } symbols on the keyboard. I have to use Google to find out how to type on a keyboard that's frigging in front of me! Ok, there's no PgDn and Home keys either, which is annoying (was the shortcut Fn + Arrow, Ctrl + Arrow, alt + Arrow or cmd + Arrow ?!? - I though Macs were supposed to be easy to use) I really wish Apple would fix this - until then I guess I@ll have Letraset it. and the @ and ' are swapped compared to most laptops

MacBook Pro :: Won't Type / Keyboard Changes To Symbols

Jul 26, 2010

When I try to type my password and hit enter/return I get an alert sound then nothing. Nothing about wrong password. Even more rare all of a sudden all I can type are symbols so I'm assuming this is what happens when I try to type my password to wake from sleep. I have to do a hard reboot before I can type in my password. I've re-installed Snow Leopard and updates. Tried deleting some preferences.

It's still happening. Anybody got any ideas? I've searching for similar problems. Can't even find a command that changes the entire keyboard layout to symbols only. I'm running 10.6.4 on a Macbook Pro.

OS X :: Unable To Find File Name?

Apr 18, 2010

Yesterday I updated my iMac's software using the Software Update and ever since then a message appears on the desktop that says...

"Searching for movie file "filename"...

It gives me the option to press "Stop" but I cannot stop it. Shortly after this message a second message appears that says...

"The movie file "filename" cannot be found. Without this file, the movie cannot be played properly."

It gives me the option to click "Cancel" or "Search" but I cannot click on it at all.

I searched the problem online, and it says that it has something to do with iTunes, but the file isn't even in iTunes.
