OS X :: Deleting Sticky Note From Pdf In Preview
Recently found out that there is a really cool feature when reading pdf files in preview. You can add notes, that show in a side column. in the file itself, it shows just a little yellow square that looks like a dialogue box from a cartoon, but yellow in side with lines (ie: a reminder that there is a note attached) To me, when reading professional articles I've downloaded, it's a great feature. It's just like making notes in an article, or on sticky notes, but it's all stored in one place, with the article's pdf file. My question (and perhaps there will turn out to be a simple answer I've overlooked) is: How do you delete one of these notes if you don't want it anymore? I've tried everything I can think of, and can't figure it out.

OS X Leopard :: Looking For A Spaces Aware Post-it/sticky Note Program?
Anyone know of a good screen post-it or sticky note type application?

Stickies fails because it does not remember which space each note as on, and when I restart they all appear on the first desktop.Leopard has been out awhile now, so I thought maybe someone might know of a new app that was Spaces aware to replace Stickies.

MacBook :: Sticky Surface - Something Like Wax
This may sound silly, but the sticky surface of the new MacBook really bothers me. I'm wondering if anyone else feels this way, and whether using something like wax might make it just slippery enough to be closer to the MacBook Pro. Any suggestions?

Applications :: Sticky Widget - Can It B Backed Up
I have been using the stickies widget provided with OSX Tiger and I love it, but is there a way to back it up? I have quite a bit of info on the widget stickies. (currently 10 stickies)

This is what I read in the help on OSX

Sticky notes in your Dashboard remain available until you close them. You can copy and paste items in sticky notes, but you cannot save your notes.

This leads me to believe that I am living dangerously with all this info???

Is there a better widget that I can store short lists on? What I use the widgets for are questions I need to ask each one of my employees. I am a school principal and can't just call up a teacher and ask them something so I jot it down on the widget sticky and ask them when I get a chance. I like having an easy way to bring up the lists and getting rid of them without opening a document or anything. Is there a better way?

IMac :: Keyboard Buttons Sticky And Sometimes Locks Up
It's my clumsiness that's got me into this. Last week I spilled what seemed to be a small amount of coffee (black, nothing added) on a small area of my keyboard. I turned it over and let it drain and then turned it up on end to make sure all liquid drained out and then dried. However, now a few of my keys sometimes lock up on me and won't press down easily. Is there anything I can do to restore the way the keys operate?

MacBook Pro :: Sticky Spacebar On Brand New MBP17
I've had my MacBook Pro 17" for a couple of days now and I've noticed that the left side of the spacebar tends to stick in a “pressed down” position. After half a second it comes lose and pops back up. Nothing has spilt in the keyboard. It acted like this almost immediately out of the box. Does this mean a trip to the local Apple Store, or is there another fix?

MacBook Pro :: Cleaning Sticky Keyboard Internally?
There was drink spillage and now some of the keys are a bit sticky, but thus far none in a full-blown malfunction. However, I would like to get all the sugar out.

I have a 15'' MacBook Pro Unibody 2.53. I've been looking at online tutorials for how to disassemble; the problem is, these are all assuming there is a battery latch on the back, which I don't have. Should I try to gently pop the keys out and clean them individually? If I disassemble, will that wipe out everything on my computer? I'm a grad student, so I really need the stuff I have on here.

Logic Studio / Pro :: Automation Shelves Seems Sticky?
When doing automation in Logic 9 I've noticed a programming change that's very frustrating. I wonder if there is a setting to change this back? When I mix vocals I like to select a small phrase of a few words and using automation send it to the bus with an echo. To do this I create two automation points before and two after the phrase on the send automation of the track. Then I just grab the inside line with my cursor and move it up. This creates a "shelf" of automation that looks like __/--\__. The problem is, from -infinity to -15 it takes a whole lot of just moves up in such small increments that it takes like 15 seconds to move the shelf up. In Logic 7 and 8 it just zipped right up to -6 with hardly a move on the mouse. Is there any way to get the shelf to move up like it used to in Logic 7 and 8?

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard Working But Some Buttons Are Sticky
I spilled some red bull on my brand new macbook, it wasn't much, I let it dry and I cleaned the outside. Everything works fine, the keyboard works too, every single key works. But some of them are sticky! And it is very uncomfortable to write on! Obviously with these keyboard designs I can't take the keyboard off and clean under it, and I don't want to take it to the Apple store because it's not really damaged and they won't cover spills. Is there a way to clean under the keys to clean out the stickyness?

MacBook :: Sticky Spill On Keyboard - Some Buttons Not Working
I spilled coffee patron (which is a syrup-like coffee flavored tequila) on some keys on my macbook 13" last night. I immediately flipped it upside down and wiped it dry. I then wet a cloth to try to save it from stickiness. It was fine but today the space bar, the "b", "command", "option", & "control" keys are very sticky. Also my caps lock, tab and the squiggly dash (that's use to abbreviate the word approximately above the tab key) are not sticky but don't work at all! My caps lock wont even light up! I would like to remove the keys to wipe under it before taking it to apple care. (which will most likely turn me down.)

Mac Pro :: Mouse Movement Sticky On Screen

IMac Intel :: Sticky Keys On Aluminium Keyboard - Clean It?
I confess, it was my fault - I spilled a couple of drops of orange juice on my keyboard which I wiped off immediately, but some must have got between the keys as my T and one or two others around that area stick.

Is it OK to splash some water on there to dilute the stickyness? IIRC the old white keyboard was almost waterproof from above, using a one-piece rubber membrane.

Does the aluminium keyboard come apart easily? Just enough so that I can clean under a key, or will the keys flip off with a small flat screwdriver? I just don't want to break anything here.

Snow Leopard :: Faulty Sticky Keys Display Position
I use Sticky Keys regularly and I use the option to display the pressed keys on screen. They used to be displayed in the upper-right corner. I have no idea how or why it happened, but since a couple of days, the pressed keys have been displayed in the centre of the display instead, which is rather annoying. I wonder how to get these back to the corner.

MacBook Pro :: Sticky Keys After Spill And Now Unresponsive Keyboard
A little over a week ago someone spilled some tea on my MBP. I immediately turned it off turned it upside down an left it alone for about an hour. It was working fine after, just a few sticky keys, most of which was the space key. A friend recommended taking a q-tip dipping in rubbing alcohol and rubbing it around the sticky keys because it had a low evaporation temperature and that it soak up the remaining liquid. I tried a few times and it worked, but certain keys, mostly my space key just got stick again. I tried earlier today and may I over did it a little and spilled a bit of the rubbing alcohol on the keyboard and track pad. I turned it off and left alone for a bit. I restart my MBP; I heard a weird beeping with a blank screen. I restart again, everything seems to be working fine. Now the keyboard is not responding and the track pad assumes that I'm always right-clicking.

MacBook :: Spilt Apple Juice Over Keyboard - Buttons Sticky
So I spilt a cup of apple juice over my Alum. Macbook and it seemed fine at the time after I tried to dry it. But now around 5 or 6 of the keys are really sticky, and take a while for them 'rise' again after being pressed. Has anyone got any tips on how to clean the keyboard properly? Or should I just take it into Apple?

MacBook Pro :: 2010 Model Cleaning Sticky Keys?
I was just wondering if anyone can offer some advice on cleaning macbook pro keys.

I spilt pepsi on my 15' macbook pro about a week ago and somehow managed to save it. I took it to next byte and they took it apart and cleaned it, although they informed me that they couldn't clean the keys for me and that they were sticking from the pepsi residue. They told me the entire top case would need replaced at a cost of $630.

I have looked up how to clean the keyboard on macbook pros, but am having trouble finding the right model, everything i find is from older versions of macbook pros.

I need to know what I should do to stop the keys sticking, and if with the new pros if it really is that hard to remove and clean the keys?

What should i do taking into account that I have never taken a computer apart before and wouldn't really know what to do.

It is the 2.4 GHz 15" macbook pro.

Mac Pro :: No Sound From External Speakers -- System Preference Not Sticky
I have external speakers plugged into my Mac Pro, but on startup sound only comes out of the box. I can change this with system preferences, but the preference doesn't seem to be sticky; I have to do this every time I reboot. Is this "normal" behavior? Is there a way to make this preference stick?

IMac Intel :: Intermittently Sticky Keyboard After Sugary Drink Spill
A few months ago I spilt a sugary fruit drink over my (full size) aluminium keyboard. I immediately "cleaned" it with a very damp cloth, hoping not only to remove the deposits but also dilute them. After drying, the keyboard seemed OK except some of the keys had a "sticky" movement and also made a slight "crunchy" sound. To my relief, after a few days the keys started feeling normal and everything was as good as new. Then a few weeks later, the stickiness suddenly returned but once again disappeared after a day or two.

Yesterday, the problem returned and I suspect it must be something to do with atmospheric conditions or temperature. Is it possible to remove the keys to clean underneath? I have actually heard of the old plastic types of keyboards being washed successfully by putting in a dishwasher but I am not that desperate and don't own such a device!

MacBook Pro :: Dropped Coffee Now Keyboard Broken And Trackpad Sticky
I had a bit of an accident and dropped some coffee on my Macbook Pro 13" Unibody. It's been about a week, I didn't touch anything because I wanted it to dry but it seems something went wrong and the keyboard just won't work anymore. The backlight still works and the trackpad still works too, although it has gotten a bit sticky (like the keyboard). I didn't have AppleCare for this computer, and am still in my first year of warranty.

Is there any chance that I could work out a deal with Apple about buying AppleCare and them fixing this? Considering AppleCare would be 219.99 since I am a full-time student, this would be a way better deal for me then having to pay for the Uppercase (which, as it seems, is the only way to fix my keyboard) which starts at around 280$, plus labour (which I would do myself). Otherwise, does anyone know a good website for refurbished parts for Macbook Pro (in my case, the Upper case with keyboard and trackpad)?

MacBook Pro :: Is There A Laptop Page I/O & Swap File Sticky

Page ins: 1.32GB
Page outs: 1.28GB
Swap used: 2.15GB.

MacBook Pro :: Spill Sticky Drink On Trackpad - Not Register Movements
I've just, rather stupidly, spill a sticky drink on my mid-2009 macbook pro. I've managed to dry some of it off and wipe it down but it is still sticky. Nothing went on the keyboard thankfully, but it all went on the trackpad. Now my trackpad feels all sticky and won't register any movement of my fingers. When it does, it only moves a couple of millimeters on the screen and stops again Also, wherever I click, it only registers the right click. Luckily I managed to attach a bluetooth mouse and use that to switch it off. Also, the mouse seemed to jitter and wander when I am not touching to trackpad. Another thing I noticed is that the performance dropped rapidly when I spill the drink.

OS X Leopard :: Cannot Save New Note
10.5.6 Mail 3.5 (930.3). I have old notes, and can display them. Note toolbar or menu 'File/new note' gives a window and I can type a new note. When I click the done icon in the toolbar it says the note can not be saved. When I close the window it says nothing about saving the note. I can make new to do's

From searching the forums I have tried these:
I deleted the Mac account, I only have a pop account.
I have preferences set to save notes and to do's on my mac (I also tried last viewed mailbox)
I have a font chosen for notes.
I have fixed preference and verified the disk.

I think a related problem is PocketMac will not transfer any new notes from my BlackBerry to Mail now. These all worked not too long ago, At least they did before upgrading to 10.5.6

Logic Studio / Pro :: Midi Note On/Off?
i have a single midi track and an external midi track sending midi information out of Logic.

I have the environment areas set also, there is a clear midi signal coming from Logic.However, for some files and some midi information there is a clear Note ON / Note OFF signal and for other files, regions and events there is simply a Note ON, without any Note OFF.For the work I'm doing at the moment, I need both the Note ON and Note OFF.

Has anyone else run into this issue and is there some general fix for individual midi notes to 'force' a Note OFF? Have I missed something simple?I've ordered and should be receiving 'Snow Leopard' and Logic Pro 9 tomorrow, however today I'm with 10.5.8 and Logic Pro 8, so this thing may already be resolved?
