Pages just crashed on me and I lost 5 really important links which took hours to find. Why would they not put an auto save in? How hard can it be? Did they say something like our software doesn't crash so no auto save? I've found this thread http://www.macworld.com/forums/ubbth...08&Main=487629 But I really cant work out how to get this to work in automator, can someone help me at all, I put it in script editor and it does nothing for me when I run it.
I bought a MacBook Pro this summer. It had a free Lion upgrade due to the timing. I just upgraded, and now I can't open iPhoto, iTunes, etc. This is NOT COOL... I would not have installed this Lion crap if I'd known it would mess with my programs! I don't want a link to pay MORE money to Apple, I want my freaking computer to work like I paid for.
I have a slightly older MacBook.It was purchased when leopard was out, but has been upgraded to lion, with ram added.Had no problems with the OS until I installed the seagate diagnostics software about a week ago at their recommendation.During the install, the computer hung during the shutdown of the mandatory restart. It took me a pram reset to get the machine to start up again. Since then, the following has been a problem:
-Spotlight has no index and won't search.
-The computer will not shut down, have to pull the plug.
-Finale (which uses java runtime) doesn't work, and the auto install of java run time won't go in.
-Software update starts, but the percentage bar freezes after a moment.†
I have run the system restore partition, which went in okay, but did not change anything.I have also followed the steps to uninstall the seagate diagnostic software. However the problem still persists.I'm guessing there is some sort of shut down script that is hanging the system, and preventing indexing from happening which prevents all of these other processes from happening.Does anyone have any ideas for what to do next?
I have a older G4 running 10.4. All of (nearly) my photos and music are on that computer. I also have a Mac BookPro running 10.7. My phone,laptop and new ipad are on icloud. Is there any way of transferring my data from the old computer to cloud.
I imported my photo collection into iPhoto. I wanted to know if there was a way I could make changes i.e. enhance function on the photos and then do a "save as" to another individual file as opposed to saving it in the main, big iphoto file. I couldn't find a way to do that through iPhoto.
Will the albums still be available to the groups that I have identified to be uploaded & downloaded via "Web" in I-Photo? Gallery was Mac's answer to Shutterfly & I am confused as to whether this aspect is still available under "Web" in I-Photo.
Each of my MobileMe Gallery albums have been synced to my Mac, I see all of them in my iPhoto v8.1.2 (Snow Leopard).¬† I'm not clear if they will still be on my Mac when MobileMe expires on June 30 so I want to move the albums to Photos in my iPhoto. The instructions I found in Apple's Support area say once photos are downloaded I can drag & drop them to Photos in the left hand column to ensure they are in my main iPhoto library.¬† I can't seem to make that happen.¬† Tried clicking on one album and dragging it to Photos - didn't work.¬† Tried selecting all photos in one album and dragging the group to Photos - didn't work.¬† I'm sure this is basic stuff to most but I am still fairly new to Mac.¬† ¬†will the contacts & calendar in my iPhone & iPad continue to sync using iTunes after MobileMe expires?¬† Presently not going to upgrade to iCloud or Lion.
I finally decided that I need something were to save my photos and music. All my DB of music and photos is consuming lots of my disk space at my imac (just 350GB) what should I buy? Any ideas on what brand and good external HDD?? would it be smart having a mini server instead?
In mid august i received an update notice to update my macbook pro, i updated to safari 7.0.6...since then when i scan on my photsmart D110, my scanned photos do not transfer to iphoto.¬† I am receiving a message about files be not readable.
If I do not use Time Machine, and open a new document in Pages, and type for ten minutes, and close the document, and click "Don't save" by mistake, is there any Auto Save or Versions of that document or just 100% out of luck? url...but I don't get any clear yes or no from it.
Since upgrading to Lion, I can't save changes or even save new documents in Pages on my laptop. When I try to save, I get the dialog box:¬† "The document ‚ÄúUntitled 2‚ÄĚ could not be saved as ‚ÄúUntitled 2‚ÄĚ. Permission denied"¬†¬† I can't find anything in Pages preferences or in the System preferences where this setting can be changed if it is a setting.¬†
I'm about to get a new Mac Pro (the most modest configuration) and I'll be using it primary for music production (i.e. Logic). I won't really be doing anything graphics intensive. At best, I'll watch the occasional movie on it and play a game or two.
The thing about the ACDs is that they're so expensive! So I'm wondering, is it really worth it for someone like me to fork over $899, or should I stick with a cheaper one in the $300-$400 range? I'm going to need to get two eventually...
Now that Snow Leopard is out and unavailable for older Macs without Intel processors, how much of an issue is this likely to become in the future? I have a Imac G5 1.8 and and just wondering if Mac is leaving us behind?
Can someone point me to a link or provide some clarity on what NOT having a firmware password means in terms of security and, as a home user, do i need to put on on?
All my personal files are in 'Knox' dmgs - i work out of the dmgs - works perfectly. But i dont know for sure where else other background/usage info is stored on the computer.
I remember i while back reading that without firmware password if someone got your mbp (physical possession) then they could reset the password and get into your user account (with mac osx cd) ... can someone confirm (im reasonably sure this is correct).
I had the password on my last mbp but havent got around to putting it on this new one. I was about to today but its been awhile and maybe there is new information or perspective for me to consider.
I have the late 2008 MBP which has only 2gb of ram. I'm planning on upgrading the ram. With this, I'm just wondering if there is anything one has to know when doing this. Considering that I boot on both windows (bootcamp) and osx, would the ram be recognized immediately? Or do i have to install or do something first before it does. Is it more advisable to reformat the whole computer? Maybe because of some performance issues.
I am going to pick up my mac pro today. I will be ordering HDs soon after. How important is it to have my 4th drive (backup) be fast? I will be getting 1 WD 640 aaks, 2 samsung spinpoints, and a 4th for back up. Should I get another spinpoint or just go with a seagate for reliability?
