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 :: 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.

Safari :: Get "find As You Type" Within The Current Page?

Jun 11, 2012

Both Firefox and Chrome let you search within the displayed webpage by just starting typing ("find as you type").

This bypasses the added step of having to to do CMD-F, as Safari requires. 

Is there an available extension that will add this functionality?  I miss it....
