OS X :: ICal Colors- Other Option Doesn't Show Up?
Jun 5, 2009
I would like to add another color for the events in my calendar, but when I click on the drop box, it only shows me home and work with no "other" option, like I've seen other people talking about. How do I add a color?
Was trying to install Windows XP through BootCamp. The installation did not go through, and I quit it. After I tried to restart the computer however, it kept going to a black screen with a blinking _ on top.
I restarted, pressing the "option" key and the only partition that shows up there is one for Windows. I can't see one labeled "Mac" or something like it anywhere. I tried using the Repair Disk Utility but it won't actually give me the option to repair ir.
I can barely see digital pictures and the likes. But websites and such i can see fine so long as the colors are light and looking on this site... [URL]
the first image i absolutely cannot see, it is 100% pitch black.. the other bellow it shows up just fine. But the two left/lowest squares on the color table on the very bottom the page both appear the same shade of pitch black.
I can see light but not dark. I tried callibrating and adjusting brightness and contrast.
I know this may sound a bit stupid, but i noticed whenever i see a picture of iCal or something, some dates and what not are colored ( see below ) yet my iCal is all white, i dont see options anywhere to set a certain color for a invent or anything?
I can change the text ( under get info ) but i cant have that whole date a certain color?
So my problem with my Macbook Pro's pixels is many of them look blurry and are multiple colors almost like a rainbow. They also only show up on white backgrounds, not black. Some of them are in clusters and others are spread out. One of the clusters is very annoying and looks like a big blurry dot on my screen. I am hoping to take it in to the apple store and see what they can do about it because it seems like it is getting worse. I am assuming these are all dead pixels but I am not certain.
New Mac user here. I'm a webdesigner and would like to have a real color picker that picks... REAL colors. I've got the "Hex Color picker" application [URL] which integrates with the built-in color picker in my iMac but it doesn't find real colors when I pick up color from webpages. EX: Real color: #e8effeWhen I pick it up from my page, the Hex Color Picker tells me this is the color: #e2eafe which is not.Little annoying when you're a webdesigner. It's somewhat important to get the real colors.
What happened to the old spotlight show all display? I liked having everything organized and all, so I could just type, click show all and then I could search through all the results. Can I get that back? [URL]. That's the window I want.
My macbook won't show the screen where you hold down the option key and it won't show the apple logo or the spinning gear just a blank white screen when I turn it on. I replaced the old hard drive with a brand new 500 gb 2.5 inch data hard drive.I also purchased a brand new copy of OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.when I put the disc in and power it on holding the option key nothing happens just a white screen with no apple logo or spinning gear.
When I hit Bookmarks>show all Bookmarks, I get a fast visual 'flash' but the Bookmarks window does not appear, and an accompanying change in the bookmark icon in the bookmarks bar. When I again return to Bookmarks, rather than 'show all Bookmarks' I find 'hide all Bookmarks,' but other than the flash and the change from 'show' to 'hide' no bookmarks list has appeared.†On the second attempt, I get the spinning beach ball, then Safari hangs, and the icon in the dock no longer shows 'quit' but 'force quit.'†Running 2008 MacBook and Snow Leopard.
Yesterday I bought my first Mac (13 inch mid 2014 retina macbook pro). But now I have a question. When I want to watch a video on youtube, the highest quality I can choose is 720p. And I know these videos can be viewed in higher qualities (1080p or higher). Even on my girlfriends macbook pro (13 inch non retina) I can view these videos in 1080p. I took a print screen to show you what I mean.¬†

Would u mind giving me a piece of advice?Currently i am seeking for an app that would show up on my desktop(and stay there) and show there tasks for today."Rainlendar" looks good but i didn't succeed in finding way for app to take info from iCal automaticly.
I have an IPad2..I run a Windows under XP for work..My Exchange account at work is synchronised with Mail, iCal and Contacts...So i receive Mail without any problems, and my work calendar appears on my iCal. It works fine both mays.The problem is when I create an event directly on iCal, it does not show on iCloud, as when I create it on iCloud, it shows on iCal without any problem.And even tough it appears on iCal, when created by iCloud, it does not show on my work PC (I understand that it does not come directly from iCal so it's normal, I think, that it does not show at work).The exact same thing happens with contacts.So despite the fact that everything is under IOS 5 or Lion, and everything is selected regarding iCloud, absolutly nothing shows on iCloud, except my own adress in Contacts.
I installed a larger hard Drive (100 GB) on my Apple ibook G4. Everything went smoothly until I tried to reinstall the disks that came with my computer (OSX 10.3). I put in the first disk and it runs fine until it comes to the part on "where to install" and the options button is supposed to light up. It does not so I can not get any further.
I want to update Aperture, but when I go to the App Store it tells me "All apps are up to date". ¬†I'm running an iMac, OS 10.6.8, current Aperture version 3.1.3 (latest version stated on App Store as 3.2.3).¬†
I've tried downloading the update manually, but the updater doesn't work and tells me my version of the app must be updated through the App Store.¬†(This is especially annoying because I transferred my Aperture Library to a MacBook which has a newer version of Aperture installed and it reformatted my library to a newer version. Now I've copied the library back to the MacBook but Aperture won't open the library because it's a requires the newer version of Aperture!)
I accidentally changed my password this morning when I thought I was doing something else.¬† iCal doesn't recognize either my old password (which I would like to get back) nor my new one (which I'll keep if I have to) and so won't syn with my iPhone.
during the system has been actualizing and power down i have close my macbook pro.Since these action the mac mail program and ical don't open. When i click on the icons they are jumping but dont open. system preferences is opening but the subfolders like network, dock, cds&DVDs and so on dosn't open. in the status bar there is shown for example loading network but nothing is going on.
Both the iMac and the MacBook Air are running the same version of OS X (10.7.4). The difference is, I think, that the MacBook Air came with OS X Lion already installed whilst my iMac had Snow Leopard and was then upgraded to Lion via the App Store.¬†Did Apple stop allowing the use of the alt key to produce special characters and I am just missing seeing that support document somewhere? Or is there a switch somewhere that I can go flick that will allow me to do the same on the MacBook Air?

I reinstalled Tiger a few days ago, im running the latest version 10.4.11.Since the reinstall when I try to click the 'send file' option in the bluetooth menu, it just doesn't do anything.My bluetooth is working fine with my mouse, but doesn't even recognise that Ive clicked the option when I try to send file.Anyone know what the problem is and how to fix it?
What's up with that? I just was using my brothers iMac and noticed his Magic Mouse felt a little different while web browsing.. I went into the System Preferences > Mouse and realized that he had enabled the check box of "Scrolling" and had it set to "WITH MOMENTUM".
So I figured out that was why mine felt different. I went into my System Preferences > Mouse and have the dialog box for "Scrolling" but I do not have the option to select "WITH MOMENTUM" or "WITHOUT MOMENTUM". I'm using a Macbook, and he has a new iMac. Both with Snow Leopard.. and I just ran a Software Update, and it says everything is Up To Date.
We have a Family MobileMe Pack and have an iMac with Snow Leopard. When I chose to move 2 accounts that the iMac uses to iCloud, I selected the option to "keep using your email after MobileMe ends" so that these accounts will still work on Mail for the iMac. ¬†
When I check the accounts under the Master account, these 2 accounts show (Remove Account) instead of (Migrated to iCloud) as is the case for my kids' accounts. ¬†Now I'm confused as to whether these 2 accounts are really migrated or not. And I'm not sure I can move the Master account to iCloud before these 2 accounts have been migrated. I've read I cannot manage any of the family accounts anymore once the Master account moves to iCloud. But time is running out.¬†
