Software :: Can't Type In Integral Extension Character

Mar 29, 2009

i just figured out that i cant type in the integral extension character, | , i got it there cuz i went thru the character list thing and found it bu thats a pain to do for wen i need to use it. to my knowledge, and according to my keyboard, it is typed by pressing shift+ but for some reason i get nothing. i have looked around for other shorcuts, shift+alt+7, shift+*, alt+i, etc etc but none of them actually work. im on a macbook pro, with the basic us keyboard setup. maybe im just being my normal self and doing something silly or missing something, or maybe its a real problem, idk, lol. if there is no way to make it work, maybe i should change to a different keyboard layout?

OS X Technologies :: Add The Correct Extension Based On The File Type?

Apr 6, 2012

I have a set of photos I"d like to import into iPhoto, but iPhoto doesn't recognize them because they don't have file extensions. Could someone give me a script that will look at each file in a specific folder, check to see if an extension is present, and if not, add the correct extension based on the file type?

OS X Mavericks :: Automator Batch Rename - Removing Type Of File With No Extension

Jun 25, 2014

I've set up an Automator to batch rename files. The renaming works fine. The problem arises when it renames a file which doesn't contain it's extension (a common MacOS practice). Is there some way to make sure it preserves the filetype? For instance, this works fine: 



 And this results in an error: 


Output (file type has been replaced with generic "document" type)

OS X :: Apple Character Is Missing In Character Viewer

Jan 29, 2010

I use the Apple character in Twitter to distinguish myself as an Apple computer user. When someone asked me how I got that in my profile I went through the steps and found that the character was missing from the keyboard and character viewer. Did Apple remove it in Snow leopard or did I do something to lose it? If I can get it back how do I do that?

OS X :: Fixing Leopard Terminal Character Set?

Dec 18, 2007

Can anyone explain to me why this is happening and how to fix it (see screenshot)? It's supremely irritating when I happen to be in a directory where a parent folder ends with "o", because then it does this crap with the slash and it shifts all the text back one space but leaves the cursor out in front. This happens on both my Leopard machines.

On a related note, what's with the fancy quotes in Terminal now? How there a way to turn those off too?

MacBook :: Skips First Character Typed?

Apr 10, 2009

When typing text it often skips the first character typed. This happens in URL address bars, searches, web forms etc. which can be really annoying.

The only 3rd party software installed is Firefox 3, which is the application that has this problem the most, but then it is also by far the most used software.

OS X Mavericks :: 10.9.3 - Filename Character Limit?

Jun 30, 2014

I just tried to save a file with a rather long name.  I got an error message that said I could not use filenames longer than 31 characters,  I seem to remember that before I got this computer (iMac 21.5"), I used to have longer filenames than 31 characters!  Is my memory faulty or is the operating system, "Mavericks" 10.9.3 deficient in this area, also?

OS X :: Character Palette - Changes Font After Double Click

Feb 17, 2009

I'm trying to copy over a specific cross (✚) character from the Character Palette to Photoshop, but when I double-click the cross it imports as another character and changes the font type to Myriad Pro. I try to change the font back to Lucida Grande but it just stays on Myriad Pro. I've noticed this happens with a few characters. I've had prior success with characters like command (⌘) which initially shows up as another character, and then I just change the font to Lucida Grande and it shows up correctly. I'm used to being able to just do a regular copy and paste in Windows but can't seem to figure it out on a Mac. (For example, you can copy and paste those characters I included above.) Edit: I just noticed the layer name actually comes up as ✚ so I'm not sure why it's not showig up in the actual layer. Here's a screenshot of the contextual layer menu.

OS X :: Character Too Close In Mail - Small Text

Feb 2, 2010

I just set up a RAID 0 with two Velociraptors in my G5. I cloned my main drive onto the new RAID drive but it would not boot so I reinstalled OS X from the recovery DVD and it fixed the problem. However, now I am getting these really weird character issues in certain programs. Characters in my Mail e-mails are kerned WAY too close and the text is abnormally small (see photos below). I also noticed the same problem on one of my Yahoo widgets. Haven't found the problem in any other applications yet. Does anyone know what the source of the problem is and how I can fix it? It's obviously pretty important that I am able to read my e-mails.

MacBook Air :: Enter The ~ Character From The Wireless Keyboard?

Mar 2, 2012

I'm working on a MacBook Air (late 2011 model), along with the Apple Wireless keyboard. The keyboard is a physical AZERTY (French) layout, but I change the mapping to US using the system preferences.  I work in the Terminal a lot, and I can't find the tilde (~) key. When I type where it would be on a US QWERTY layout, the output is the plus-minus (±) sign. When I type Option+N, I get the tilde accent character (˜). Terminal does not interpret the ~ and ˜characters the same.  My question: How can I enter the ~ character from the wireless keyboard? Currently, I reach up to the Air's integrated keyboard and type it there.
