OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To See Path Of Current File In TextEdit (or Any App)

Feb 22, 2012

Pre-Lion the way to see the path of the file you are currently looking at (in any app, but for simplicity let's say TextEdit), was to select Save As... and it would default to the directory the file is open in. At least that's the way I did it... 

So now in Lion (which I generally like) how do you see what directory your current file is located in??

Even though my permissions are set to read write, I can't save changes to a TextEdit file. The program keeps saying I don't have permission and asks me if I want to create a duplicate. How can I fix this?

May 24, 2012

how to find the path to a file in a Spotlight search result. In Snow Leopard I would get the path to a file or folder by just holding the mouse over the search result in Spotlight. I don't see that in Lion.

OS X :: Is It Possible To Print A File Path?

Nov 23, 2010

I have a detailed hierarchy of folders and files that I need to print a table of contents for. Is it possible to do this through OS X (either by directly printing, or exporting to another file, etc.)? I'd hate to type out the whole thing if there's an easier way.

OS X :: File Path In Finder?

Jun 16, 2008

Is there any quick way to get a file or folder's path in a copy/pastable form from the Finder (you know, like the location bar in most other file browsers)?

I know you can right-click on the little icon at the top of the window and it'll display the parent directories in a clickable form, but that's not very useful when I need to have the actual path (when coding, for example). Dragging the little icon won't work, either, as TextMate does weird things with that.

Basically, is there some Cmd+??? combination that'll copy the path to the clipboard?

ITunes :: Organizing By File Path?

Jul 22, 2010

I've always hated how itunes doesn't let you order by file path. It's really an overt ommission intended to get people to abandon their folder structures and have itunes take control. Anyways I've held off since I've built up a good system which works for me and I hoped that maybe one day it would get patched into it. Well it didn't look like they'd ever put it in so I started looking around for alternatives and I found one which works.

OS X :: How Do You Find The File Path To Mount An ISO?

Jun 21, 2009

i've no idea what i'm talking about really haha, but here's the deal! i have a download that requires steps that i've no idea what the heck they are talking about, and i think it's mostly PC instructions too so i'm totally lost, all i know is what i downloaded isn't complete. so they tell me to do this

1. Burn or mount the Application ISO using one of the many ISO utilities. ( I personally use PowerISO to mount, but daemon tools should work fine too.)

personally i don't have the slightest clue as to what an ISO is in the first place but whatever. so i look up ways to do whatever it is they are asking for macs and i get this from [URL]

If you're wondering how to mount an ISO image in Mac OS X, it is very easy. In the Terminal type the following command: hdiutil mount sample.iso with sample.iso being the path to the image you want to mount. After the checksum is completet, your ISO will appear mounted on your Mac OS X desktop - that's it. You you can actually mount virtually any other disk image type with hdiutil as well, so give .dmg .img a try too.

still no clue what anyone is talking about but ok! i find terminal which i didn't even know existed. i type in what i think is that path cause i've no idea how to find it and i get this

macs-macbook:~ mac$ hdiutil mount /User/mac/Desktop/japanese1/data/00.rsd hdiutil: mount failed - No such file or directory.

OS X Mavericks :: What Is The Correct File Path For Library

Sep 5, 2014

My MBP crashed, and I had to restore by dragging and dropping from an external hard drive.  I fear I may have put the "library" for my user account in the incorrect place.  I am trying to create and modify MS Excel Templates and am learning to do so watching Lynda.com videos and the file path they illustrate has the library listed after selecting a user...on my MBP I have library and users in the same category so when I go to my "user name" there is no library in the next category.  I hypothesize that is why Excel is not automatically creating a "my templates" file for the custom templates I am creating.

ITunes For Mac :: Forget File Path When Closed

Aug 19, 2014

If I change a folder name, while iTunes is working it's okay, it keeps playing the file just fine, but when I close iTunes and re-open it, it forgets the file path and make me find the path manually, then appears to be all right, but why it forgets the path when I close it? 

I mean, even if I change the folder name (path) of the song that is actually playing, nothing happens and keep playing all the songs just fine, but if I close forgets all changes...

Applications :: How To Append File Names With Folder Path?

Mar 18, 2009

I'm looking for a way to rename a batch of 30,000 photos. I have renamer but I don't think it does what I need it to do. I want to append the file name with the folder path. The photos are organized in folders which give info I want to make part of the filename itself (country, city etc.)

I am sure there is a way but...don't know how. Freeware or native apple way preferred over having to buy a new program.

ITunes For Mac :: Changing File Path To External Drive (XML / ITL)

Dec 8, 2014

On Mavericks, Current itunes. My iTunes library files, the folder, iTunes Library.itl , iTunes Music Library.xml and so on, are stored in the Music folder of my system on the main hard drive. 

All of the actual MP3s etc are on a separate drive, "Beagle Music". (I have iTunes set to not import and to leave my files the way I have them organized)

I've moved those to a new External, "Beagle Media".  

I would like to point iTunes to the new drive, and would GREATLY PREFER not to have to rebuild the library files from scratch. 

I TRIED editing the file path in iTunes Music Library.xml, thinking that would fix the .ITL file, but that is actually the reverse of how it works, so the XML reverted when I restarted iTunes.

OS X :: How To Input Approximate File Path Information Into Search Query?

Sep 26, 2009

The original message was too long, so here is a shorter version. Suppose I have the following file structure: Joeirthdayphotos. I want to type, "photo, joe" to get me to the "photo" folder. Is there a simple way to do something like that?


Spotlight seems to only allow users to find files but without relation to where the file might be located. This works fine if the filename is "New_York_Birth_Rate_2008.pdf". How about if it's stored as "Birth_RatesNew_York2008.pdf"? Searching for "2008.pdf" would bring up a whole host of files and one could select the one in the right folder. But what if you have a large number of files called "2008.pdf", stored under various folders (birth rate, mortality, morbidity, rain fall, humidity, crime rate, etc etc etc" and you want to narrow the search? Sure, one could use the advanced search, but this defeats the purpose of a file launcher like Spotlight.

Ideally, I want to input something like, "new york, birth, 2008" in any order and it would search for all folders and files with similar names, sorted by placing ones with more matched terms in terms of the file path. Is there an input method to do this? Surely this is a common scenario?

Here's another example, "Sales Person ABronx2009SeptInsurance Plan A.pdf". Now imagine I have 200 sales persons, and 50 areas. I want to type "richard, longevity plus.doc, bronx" to narrow the list. Sure, I can use advanced search, but as I said, this defeats the purpose of spotlight.

Applications :: TextEdit Not Responding When Open Existing File

Mar 1, 2009

If I open TextEdit, it seems to work ok. But if I open an existing file (RTF), TextEdit opens but is "not responding" (says the Activity Monitor), for about 2 minutes. Then the file I wanted to open suddenly appears and works fine.

How come? And how can I make TextEdit work normally again?

OS X :: Error - Don't Have Permissions For Folder - Make Textedit To Write That File

Oct 1, 2010

I have a config file, /etc/my.cnf that has permissions set via the finder gui to have read/write for anyone that's an "admin". My user is an admin (turns out I'm the only user as well), but when I open this file (it's plain text) in text edit it gives me an error on save saying that I don't have permissions for the folder that it's in. I can, however, use nano via the terminal and modify the file without any issues. I don't want to set read/write permissions on /etc to everyone, so how do I make it so TextEdit (and thus other programs having the same problem) can write to that file?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: See The Doc Path In A Program Like Pages?

How do I see the doc path in a program like Pages? Lion's lack of "save as" means that (as far as I can see) the only way to see the path of the Pages doc I'm working on is to 

1) make a duplicate

2) save the duplicate (which shows me where the original was.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Set PATH Environment Variables When There Is No ~/.profile?

Apr 18, 2012

I have a MacBook Air and just installed MySQL.I read the doc which I downloaded and should be able to run "mysql" from terminal as descibed below:Suppose that your MySQL programs are installed in /usr/local/mysql/bin and that you want to make it easy to invoke these programs. To do this, set the value of the PATH environment variable to include that directory. For example, if your shell is bash, add the following line to your .bashrc file: PATH=${PATH}:/usr/local/mysql/bin I checked on my terminal with ls -al, but no ~/.bashrc also no ~/.profile files.  Echo $SHELL shows me that I am using /bin/bash as shell.When I run export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/mysql/bin  then it works and I just have to type "mysql" to get the mysql command line but as soon as I kill my terminal and open a new terminal this setting is lost.

MacBook Pro :: How To Display Path In Spotlight On Lion

May 23, 2012

The function of Spotlight has changed so that it no longer displays the path of a selected file.  There are additional keystrokes that need to be performed to display path.  Not only is this change inconvenient and frustrating it is also a productivity killer.  Those 2 or 3 seconds to click on a box or do a key combo add up at the end of a long project.  Does anybody know if Apple has Business Analysts that vet any proposed changes like this.  If so, are the BAs keeping the path open that goes to us users.

OS X :: How To Add Current Date To Automator Save File Name

Jun 23, 2010

I have an automator script I made myself that I use constantly. When I run the script one of the steps takes a screenshot and saves it as a PNG file. When I run the script again, it replaces the old PNG file with a new one. I would really like it to save the PNG file so that file name begins with the current date at the beginning of the name. Meaning the PNG file would be named something like "6/23/10 screenshot". Is this possible?

I'd be almost as happy if I could at least get it to simply make a new PNG with any random filename just so long as it doesn't overwrite the old version. That way I could simply look at the date created column in the finder and get the same info.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: TextEdit Saving Without Asking?

Jun 4, 2012

My computer is set up with a network drive that does not allow for the new feature "versions" to function properly. I guess at some point a window popped up and asked if I wanted to save anyway and I clicked the "do not show message again" and cancel. Well it has remembered my choice to not show this message again but now it just permanently overwrites and saves text files when I close them without even hesitating. So 10 minutes ago I had a very important file open and accidentally modified it, I was done with the file but did not want to save it so instead of undoing I just closed the file. This new system has completely overwritten the file with this new version and when I reopen it there are no undo options or previous versions available to restore. How do I turn this stupid feature off?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Change Name Of TextEdit / Trash?

May 5, 2012

It looks like some icons names cannot be changed in OS X Lion via the Resources technique? I used to use the tips from this thread in Leopard and Snow Leopard but now the game seems to be up:


I would, normally, replace the app with a copy of itself to overwrite the name but Lion won't let me delete the original because the OS needs it and like I said, the Resource lproj trick doesn't seem to work.

Is there a way to change the name of the Trash or TextEdit app?
