Upgraded to Office 2011 from 2008, when I open existing spreadsheet on MacBook the bottom of the page extends below the dock so I cannot access resize corner. I can maximize to get access to resize but am looking for fix so that when a sheet is opened the page does not fall below dock. Even happens on new default spreadsheet.
I can't believe I'm even posting this question. I just opened iTunes and the window is so big the bottom is cut off so I can't resize the window from the bottom right-hand corner. Clicking the minus just gives me the player controls and "x" of course closes it. The "+" gives me just the player controls. I just want to resize the window so it's say, 1/4 my screen. How do I resize the window when I can't see the bottom corner?
I have a VGA HP monitor that runs at a native resolution of 1680x1050 at 60Hz. I plugged the Mini in, some weird resolution came up. 1680x1050 didn't show up in "Displays". I downloaded SwitchResX, and set it to 1680x1050 at 60Hz.The resolution is now set, but the monitor is very blurry, and the dock extends beyond the bottom of the screen.I really want to get this working. I'm not quite sure how SwitchResX works so could anybody give me a hand?
I'm trying to send a message to an Address Book mailing list in Mail. For some reason, my email account isn't functioning properly (another problem for another day), and Mail reports that the account doesn't recognize any of the addresses on my list. Mail, of course, lists ALL of the addresses, so the error message (and the buttons to deal with it) extend past the bottom of my 1920 x 1200 display. (I found that out by moving the dock somewhere other than the botom of the screen.)Does anyone have any idea what to do? I can't make the screen resolution any finer. I tried quitting Mail; the message pops right back up when I restart. I tried deleting the message from my Outbox, but the displayed message + error doesn't budge.

I just got a new Macbook Pro with a 15" screen. When I moved files from my 27" iMac the iTunes window is so large that I cannot see the bottom third of the window on the 15" screen. And I cannot access the lower right-hand corner so that I can resize the screen to fit the 15" window. Therefore I cannot see about a third of the music currently in iTunes. If I encounter the same problem with other applications or files, is there a solution that works for all occurrences?

Some weeks ago I dropped my MacBook Air (well, actually I couldnï¿½t do anything, my bag was broken so it dropped) and got quite a noticeable dent in the bottom left corner on the screen (outside, you can see the dent while closed). I tried to live with it but with such an expensive machine I can barely do that. So I tried to find a replacement part, the display housing. But - I canï¿½t. I can find replacement LCD displays, replacement housings fï¿½r MacBooks, for MacBook Pros - but NOTHING like that for the Air. Seems like this is Murphys law, eh? This really sucks.
Ok so my bottom left corner of the trackpad doesn't like to register. It only happens when I want to click on it. It doesn't work however when i tap on it. Sometimes it works and other times it doesnt..
Our eMac seems to be developing a green tint in the bottom right hand corner of its screen. I've done some quick searching online and it seems that a few people have suggested a cold boot so it runs the degaussing process on a startup.
I left the eMac off for about an hour, unplugged. It did the degauss once it was plugged back in and "seems" to have removed nearly all of the green tint.
There are a few threads on various forums when I search on Google about this issue but they have no conclusive reasons why this is happening.
Could my eMac be developing a fault at all? I'm not too sure if anything magnetic has been placed on our table near the eMac so this may be the reason.
has anyone had an issue with office mac 2011 excel and osx lion? i make excel spreadsheets with pdf storyboards on them, and too often the excel file will not reopen. instead i get a corrupt file notice. i choose fix file and the file opens without the pdf files. sounds like a pdf/excel issue to me. it is maddening.
I guess this is a bit trivial, but I want to change the display at the bottom of my iTunes screen. The part that tells you how many albums you have, the total playing time, and size. Currently, this is displayed with the European system of using commas instead of points as the decimal separators. I may be crazy, but I'm pretty sure it used to have points and then a few days ago, it switched on me. I noticed it after I installed an update. Is there a way of changing it back?
There seems to be some discoloration or burn it at the bottom of my display - it's a bar that extends across the bottom of my screen and just slightly up either side. I tried to take a picture of it but it doesn't really work well. When the screen is on, but dark (say, netflix or a darker game), it appears faded.Anyway, I am wondering what this is, if it is an easily resolvable issue, and whether it would be covered by the 1-year limited warranty? I'm out in rural VT, so I can't take it to an apple store without driving an hour or so (at least) - can Apple Authorized Repair places do warranty repairs?

I've got an imac with a dead monitor and when i plug in an external monitor to get a display it only shows me the far corner of the desktop and I cannot access the dock or anything else to change settings. I need to change the monitor setting to MIRROR MODE which I believe is located in System Preferences but I cannot see anything with the current limited display.
I looked and I didn't find any info so I just wanted to tell you that Solver for Excel Mac 2011 is now available as a free download here: http://www.solver.com/ This guys also have some other really cool tools if you want to check them out.
I've had great success with Excel 2011 on OS 10.6.8.Â Up until today.Â Now, Excel crashes on launch, tries to recover, and crashes again.Â I read the previous comments about a) hold down shift key and launchÂ and b) delete the /plist file.Â Tried both, no success.Â I can still launch Excel 2008, fyi.Â And Word, etc, all other MS office products...Â

I created an excel document but I don't want the first line of information for the next bank of data showing when I print it. I basically want to be able to choose what prints on what page and how much of something prints on what page, by dragging the print line or whatever it is you do.
I've seen conflicting information about the new Office Mac release. Have Macros been restored to Excel? And if so, what language are they using? Has anyone tried them or tried to import Macros from Excel 4 or Excel 5 macro languages?
MS has added many styles to default worksheet in 2011. Previous versions I could create my own default workbook and put it in the Startup folder for Excel. That does not work in 2011. Anyone able to tell me how to use my former default sheet in 2011 (don't want to Template feature)? I am talking about the sheet created when you start Excel.
I am experienced in Excel VBA on the PC but not on the Mac. I am building an application on my PC that will run on my sister's Mac (latest OS, Excel V14.0.2). The problem involves the use of FormulaARRAY in my code. I have extracted the problem statement into a small example routine shown below: Public Sub example() Dim lastcol As Long With ActiveSheet lastcol = 12 .Cells(4, 6).FormulaArray = "=SUM((MOD(COLUMN(RC9:RC" & lastcol & ") -COLUMN(RC9),3)=0)*(RC9:RC" & lastcol & "))" End With End Sub
Here is one of the correct and working formulas that resulted on the PC (note the brackets for the array formulas are missing but they are there. I got what I am showing by using the 'display formulas' option which apparently does not show the brackets): =SUM((MOD(COLUMN(RC9:RC12)-COLUMN(RC9),3)=0)*(RC9:RC12))
Here is the incorrect and non working formula that resulted on my sister's Mac: (again the brackets are there) =SUM((MOD(COLUMN(RC:RC)-COLUMN(RC),3)=0)*(RC:RC))
Both systems were set to display R1C1 Reference Style. This is irrelevant on the PC and I would assume the same for the Mac. I bought an old G4 for $60 to use to debug my PC code in the Mac environment. Curiously the code runs fine on it under Excel 2004.
Excel on my mac is so confusing and i have never used it before. It prints out everything but the grid lines for the graph..without the gridlines, the graph looks weird and not easy to read..The print preview shows the grid lines on the mac but when it prints out, i get a weird graph..
Does anybody know where the controls / forms toolboxes are. Just got to the end of building a spreadsheet, and cannot find the control toolbox anywhere for adding spinners, check boxes etc. Is it even included anymore, as web searches draw a total blank for me.
Two strange issues that I can't fix on my new MB Air 13 with MS Office for MAC 2011 and Excel.
1) I can't get the Standard Toolbar to show up when I open a new worksheet. I go to view, toolbars and then see that the Standard Toolbar is checked, but it doesn't show up. The only way to get it to show up is to do a series of steps: - uncheck Standard Toolbar menu and go back out; - go back in and check the Standard Toolbar and back to the spreadsheet - the Standard Toolbar still doesn't show up; - so then I click on the Layout tab on the ribbon and then it shows up!
2) I can't see the bottom of the window/spreadsheet - which means I can't resize the window. To resolve this, I have to do these steps: - open system preferences and change my MBA screen resolution from 1440 x 900 down to 1280 x 800 - then go back to the spreadsheet, and resize the window (make it smaller on the screen) - go back and resize the window back to 1440 x 900 - and then close the system preferences at this point, the Excel spreadsheet window is smaller and I can see/use the bottom of the screen to resize, etc.
Can't figure out what setting I have wrong or why I can't get Excel for Mac 2011 to work correctly on the MB Air screen.
I am running Lion 10.7.3 on a 2.8GHz CoreDuo iMac from 2007 and on a Macbok Air 2.13 GHz Core duo from 2010.Â The iMac has 4GB of RAM the Macbook has 2 GB RAM.Â
I run Microsoft Office 2011 on both machines.Â For the same file the Macbook operates normally on Word and Excel.Â The iMac is slow at best and when I try a Save As it hangs for up to 15 minutes brfor letting me change the FIle Name. This effectively makes it unusable.Â
As far as I can tell the set up of Office on both Machines is identical and I have eliminated duplicate Fonts as suggested by some posts but the problem remains.Â I have checked Activity Monitor and I am not getting any Page Outs so RAM does not appear to be an issue.
At the moment I do not have Microsoft Office for my mac but I am looking into it as I will be going back to study soon and know I will encounter problems when it comes to transfering documents from my mac to a PC with Microsoft software. However I really love the mac application 'Pages' for personal projects so I am just wondering if I can still use it alongside Microsoft or I must give it up?
I'm selling my trusty G4 Powerbook and have a quick question about keychains. I erased my entire drive & reloaded all software. I had to log into my airport express to finish the installation and make sure all my software was as current as could be for the new owner. Somehow my keychain got populated with my password for the airport express and would like to know if I delete it from the keychain access page - is this securly deleted or could the new owner retrive it if he wantd to?
A few months ago I was persuaded to set-up a "Linkedin" account which I did. To begin with it seemed to be working fine and I steadly started to build up my profile.
But in the past month, whenever I log in, the site just hangs. I either get a blank white page or the browser just never finishes downloading the page.
I've tried Safari 3, Safari 4 Beta, Firefox, Camino and Opera web browsers. I've also fired up Parallels desktop and tried accessing the site through Internet Explorer 7 and the PC versions of Chrome and Firefox. Again, I can't get beyond my Linkedin homepage before the site freezes on me.
I've tried accessing the site on my new iMac, and eMac and iBook on the same network.
I'm using an Airport Extreme base station (UFO type) which is configured to use Open DNS.
I do not have this problem with any other websites and I've done all the basic stuff like deleting cookies, resetting Safari, fixing disk permissions etc. to no avail. Other people I've spoken to (other Mac users) don't seem to have the same problem I do.
Under normal circumstance I would have contacted Linkedin to request technical support, but alas, the contact page wont load!
I bought my Macbook Pro in January of this year and had to get the hard drive replaced over the weekend. It has been working fine except every-time I want to access the internet (using Safari) from sleep mode it will not connect to the internet and I have to restart the computer. The wireless sgnal in the top right corner by the clock will show maximum strength, but refuses to go to any websites. Never happened before my hard drive crashed and it's getting annoying to have to restart the computer every time I want to go on the internet.

Apple on Thursday released a small software update for users of its photo applications that adds RAW support for nearly a dozen new digital cameras.
The 2.2MB Digital Camera RAW Compatibility Update 2.0 extends RAW file compatibility for Aperture 2 and iPhoto '08 for the following cameras:
Hasselblad CFV-16 Hasselblad H3D-31 Hasselblad H3D-31II Leaf Aptus 54S Leaf Aptus 65S Nikon D60 Olympus E-3 Pentax *ist DL2 Pentax *ist DS2 Pentax K100D Super Sony DSLR-A200 Sony DSLR-A350
The update also includes a lone security fix that was also included as part of a much larger security update released on Tuesday, which affects DNG image files.
"A stack based buffer overflow exists in the handling of Adobe Digital Negative (DNG) image files. By enticing a user to open a maliciously crafted image file, an attacker may cause an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution," Apple wrote. "This update addresses the issue through improved validation of DNG image files."
The security update is applicable for users of Aperture 2 or iPhoto 7.1.2 with iLife Support 8.2.[ View this article at AppleInsider.com ]
