IMac :: How To Change Login Text


I am new to apple, just purchased an iMac off craigslist, and have a personalization question. I was able to change the user name and all that info just fine but when my computer first turns on and I am prompted to log in the previous owner has a text below the apple icon that I would like to change. Right now it says "Daves ********** iMac" well my name is not Dave and I don't care to have that on there every time i go to log in. I have done a lot of searching and found where I can "change login text" but that is for one of the texts, not the one I am trying to figure out.. here is a sample picture, the text I have circled in red is the text I am trying to change, the text saying macbook pro is the only text I have successfully changed. (This is just a picture I got off the inter-web, not my actual login)

Final Cut / Motion :: How Do I Change Text Attributes Within One Text Box
I am trying to change text attributes within one text box in Motion 3, but am only able to change the font/size for the entire box. Is there a way to change the attributes to individual lines of text within a text box without creating an entirely new one or using the "Lower Third" text effect?

How do I create (two different) multiple colors, fonts, bold, italic, underline in one text box within Final Cut Studio Motion (FCP, FCS)

IMac Intel :: User Account Login Screen Boots Despite Automatic Login?
This has happened to me twice over the past week. I turn on my Mac and normally it boots up and logs me into my user admin account (Which is the only user account on my machine). I do this because I live with family that doesn't use my computer so I don't need the security of asking for a password to login to my account, but I just turned on my machine and the account log-in screen booted up asking for my user name and password. The entered the info, but it would not log me in. I tried using the restart and shut down buttons and they simply reloaded the log-in screen. I had to do a hard reboot by holding down the power button and when I did that my Mac booted up fine and logged me in as normal.

OS X :: User Created Text On Login Screen
When logging in with my password there is some user created text above the dialogue box. I created this text in Tiger but can't remember where or how. It was deep in the root, and I know Leopard is somewhat different than Tiger when it comes to these functions.

OS X Leopard :: How To Change Text Function
I have been trying to use Automator to change the character / to a - in file names with no success. I just end up with a copy of the file in the destination folder with exactly the same name?

It may be I am being a bit thick? :-))

What I am hoping to do is take a file named xxxxx 23/01 and make it xxxxx 23-01

The process I use is:

1. Get Specified Finder Items

2. Copy Finder Items (where I select a new destination folder).

3) Rename Finder Items (I select Replace Text in the drop down menu, then I insert a / in the Find field and a - in the Replace field).

When I then run it I end up with all the items copied to the destination folder without the text being changed.

OS X Leopard :: How To Change The Text Size
Does anyone know how to change the font /text size (which is a hidden preference) in all the headings of settings boxes eg the export window of lightroom where you set the sizes, dpi, etc. It was changed for me but it is too big and I can't read some of the settings as they are now out of the window. I thought the person who changed it had used Onyx but I can't find anything to change the text size. I did read somewhere that someone tried Tinkertool but still couldn't find it. It must be possible as it was changed and increased for me but I need to reduce it. Default settings don't work.

OS X Leopard :: How To Change Default Keyboard And Language At Login
The default keyboard and language of the login page on my MacBook Pro (Leopard) has just been changed. Here's the background:

I was using a French iBook G4 running Tiger and just upgraded to a British MPB running Leopard. I used Migration Assistant to transfer my iBook accounts to the MBP. (Only accounts were moved, no applications - they're being installed fresh).

When I start the MBP now, the login screen is in French and even though the physical keyboard is UK-English, it operates as a French keyboard. As soon as I login the keyboard reverts to British.

I'm sure it must be possible to edit a preference file somewhere to change the login screen and keyboard back to English but I don't know where to look or what to change.

OS X Leopard :: How To Change The Language Of A Block Of Text
Working in a bilingual environment, I am constantly switching languages as I write e-mail. Using Mail 3.5, if I forget to change the dictionary language before I start writing, Mail logically marks most words as spelled incorrectly. After having written a paragraph, I'd like to be able to change dictionary language, and then continue writing.

But Mail doesn't seem to change the language for the text that was already entered -- the words that were "misspelled" according to the old dictionary language are still underlined in red after the new dictionary is chosen, and after I've told it to "Check document now".

How can I get it to re-evaluate the text as now being in the language of the dictionary, so that all those incorrect red underlines will disappear?

IWeb 09 :: Why Text Change Format When Published
I have started designing my first web page and put a logo on using the "bank gothic" font. I have had no problems with this and it still shows as bank gothic but I have tried to add another text box using the arial font, when I publish the site the arial always changes to times new roman. I have tried using every font type in iweb and they all revert to times new roman! It's strange because the text in the bank gothic box still shows correctly but if I add even a letter to that text it converts to times.
