OS X V10.7 Lion :: Cannot Input With Track Pad

Jun 5, 2012

I am using MacBook Air with OSX Lion.  I need to input Chinese characters using the track pad and I have set it up in the Preference > Language. 

I called out Pages, started the track pad inputing area.  I write on the track pad, it can display the stroke I write on the pad and suggested the characters. Then I choose the charater for input.  However, nothing was input to the pages.  The curser did not move.  If I input using the keyboard, it is OK to input what I type.  It just did not respond to the track pad.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard And Track-pad Input Acting Different?

Mar 6, 2012

I have a really annoying problem with my macbook pro. Often (maybe 40-50% of the times) when i click some text field (on a webpage in Chrome or Safari, or in Finder's search field - actually any text field on my mac) and start to write something, nothing happens. Then if i use my trackpad and CLICK on the text field, all of the letters which i wrote, suddenly appears. The same thing happens with scrolling (in Apple's Preview app, browsers, finder etc.). Sometimes when i try to scroll, nothing happens. If i then click anywhere inside the window, it scrolls. Same thing happens with gestures if i use Preview to view a pdf in fullscreen. If i use 3 fingers swipe to browse to another page, nothing happens. If i click anywhere it immediately go to the other page. Is this software or hardware related? I'm thinking software, unless it has something to do with my trackpad. It's a 13" Macbook Pro (2.3 i5)

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Why In World Would Apple Make Track Pad LESS Useful In OS Lion

Mar 18, 2012

Why in the world would Apple make the track pad LESS useful in OS Lion? I hate that I can't g back to the top of a web page with a singe swipe. And of course all the other gestures are totally reversed. IMHO, this was not an improvement.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Switching Between Multiple Input Languages?

Apr 7, 2012

I use English, Korean and Google Japanese. I used to use Windows with the same set of languages and it was even more difficult than in OS X, because each IME may have multiple languages (for example, Korean IME has both Korean and English mode). Now in OS X it is better than Windows because each IME has only single language, but still there are some troubles. 

I use long command + shift. It shows the list in the middle of the screen, but the order is change depending on the current IME. And it only has text, no flag icon, so it is difficult to get the IME I want without carefully watching the screen. 

It looks like OS X does not support assinging a shortcut for each langauge. For example, if I could assign F1 for English, F2 for Korean and F3 for Japanese it would be much easier. Or if only the popup language screen had flag icons... 

Is there any third-party app that helps switching between multiple IMEs?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Change Input/Output With One Click?

May 24, 2012

I would like to find a way or an app that would allow me to change the input AND output sound device with one click.  I realize you can to ALT-Sound icon, but you have to individually choose the input and output. 

The idea is this:  when I switch to a USB headphone with mic, and would always want both the input and output to be the headset.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Audio Input/Outputs Quick Switching?

Feb 4, 2012

I have one particular application I use that requirems me to temporarily switch my audio input and output to different sources. Once I've used the app., I switch them back to their previous state. 

I use Soundsource which gives me quick menu-bar access to the inputs/outputs but I still have to set them indiviudally. I was hoping there might be a way to have one or more 'sound sets' which have different combinations of inputs and outputs and then just switch between the sets. 

In the absence of any such app. (or is there one?) does anyone know how I could write an Applescript to do this?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Why Doesn't System See Audio Input (jackplug)

May 5, 2012

I have an acoustic guitar, attached to my Mac Mini (Lion 10.7.3) via a guitar pickup by a jack to audio input, with output to external speakers.  System prefs are 'Audio line in port' and 'headphone port' - the only choices -  but it doesn't even 'see' the input - there's no response from the input volume bit.  I can play itunes, dvds, cds  through the external speakers, but not hear anything attached via the audio input.  I tried through garageband, and set the audio according to instructions, but even with 'hear playing while recording' set, I can't hear it. 

I had been able to hear the guitar through the speakers before I (unfortunately!) had to reinstall Lion.  This may be part of the problem: I forgot (yes, I know - daft!) to install Snow Leopard first.  However, I do have it on another partition, which seems to be sufficient as in all other respects Lion so far is working fine.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Finder Keeps Asking To Input Password Whenever Delete File To Trash

Jun 23, 2012

Suddenly Finder keeps asking me to input my password whenever I delete a file to the trash. Emptying the trash is fine, though.I thought maybe I had clicked an option in Onyx that caused this, but having looked several times, I can't see anything in Onyx that would cause this.I've tried repairing disk permissions using Disk Utility, with no effect.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Track Network Usage By Program

Jan 31, 2012

My Macbook Air (running lion) is consuming a large amount of bandwidth. Yesterday 20GB of data were uplodaded. I don't know which program(s) is doing it.
I'm not doing any of the obvious things that might lead to such usage: I don't use torrents, watch internet movies, etc. Even when I'm doing nothing, or have the browsers closed, I'm uploading between 32 kbs and sometimes 3 mbps. Activity monitor shows total network usage, but it doesn't break it down by program. Is there a way to make activity monitor do that? I've installed little snitch, but no program that it tracks is taking up enough bandwidth to account for the usage I'm seeing.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Use A Different Scroll Setting For Mouse And Track Pad?

Mar 28, 2012

I'd like to be able to hook a mouse up to Macbook Air and have it scroll properly, without breaking the scroll direction on its trackpad (or my magic pad). In other words, I want to disable "Move content in the direction of finger movement when scrolling" for mice, and enable "Scroll direction: natural" for trackpads. These seem to be the same setting, though, as checking/unchecking one has the same effect on the other. 

How can I do this, as I'd love to be able to easily switch to a mouse, without having to mentally reverse the direction of the scroll wheel.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Wallpaper Flashes And Windows Expand Whenever ITunes Changes Track

Jun 22, 2012

basically my wallpaper image flashes and any windows I have minimized to the Dock expand whenever iTunes changes tracks. It's not a huge problem, but it can be a bit of a pain (there, it just happened again, I had to minize stuff in order to get back to this window).

P.S.: I listed the topic under Lion because it never happened before I upgraded to it.

IMac :: How To Know About 27" DVI Input?

Oct 28, 2010

Just reading the other post related to 27" input I have a question about connecting a G4 MDD that has a DVI output to a quad i5 or quad i7 iMac.

I need to connect the G4 since my kids have some games that still run in Classic mode and only have enough room for one monitor. Is there a cable that will allow me to use the iMac as a monitor for the G4?

Applications :: Is There A DVR With HDMI Input?

Dec 1, 2010

Is there a DVR with HDMI input or component cable input, but only a one-time fee and can copy encrypted channels (HD or SD) that doesn't use a CableCard.

Elgato products don't do it. TiVo does it but I don't like the monthly fee and they want me to get rid of my Verizon FIOS Box.

What would be even better is a DVR that has a HDMI in and out that connects from my Verizon FiOS HD Cable Box to the DVR then from the DVR into the HDTV.

Mac Pro :: Need Input On 3M Document Wedge?

Mar 23, 2010

My question is not really pertaining to MP or MBP, but I use both of these computers. I have been on the hunt for the best document holders, I do a lot of looking at the papers and typing it on the computer. After a little bit of research I came across this document holder and it looks cool. Of course, these are a wee bit on the expensive side, but ebay searches came up with these search results: [URL]. Has anybody used these document holders? Even though it is a minor accessory I would love to have your input on this document holder.

Mac Pro No Analog Audio Input

Mar 26, 2012

The analog audio input on my Mac Pro has stopped working.Audio output still OK; USB audio input works fine but nothing from analog audio input.I know it's getting a signal as I can send the mixer output to a Zoom H4n and it records fine, but I need it to go directly into the computer for tutorial voiceovers. I've tried recording in Quicktime Player, Soundtrack Pro, Camtasia and Screenflow.I get no volume indication in the System Preferences>Sound panel.I opened Apple Midi Setup>analog input and I can adjust volume on the two channels but "Master" is stuck at zero.

OS X :: No Audio Output From External Input.

Sep 12, 2010

I have a mac mini (solo intel) 10.4 OSX. I have no audio output when attaching an external input source like a CD player or ipod to the input jack on my Mac Mini. Audio output from ITunes or movies clips in IPhoto works fine. I have checked the cables and connections. I have checked the "sound" location in System Preferences to make sure the "built in output" source is selected. The input volume display shows that the audio input is being registered. I have checked "system profiler" in the Utilities folder in Applications to make sure the "built in output" AKA headphone outlet is recognized.

I have the "Soundflower" App. installed but turned off.

why the audio output from the internal sources like ITunes and IPhoto music clips work but the audio output from an external input source does not? Is there some software or a driver required for audio output from an external source that is not required for audio output from an internal source?
