OS X Mavericks :: Reminders Functions Erratically And Crashes?
Sep 4, 2014
The Reminders App have become unusable. I unable to create a new Reminder or modify an existing one. Every time I want to make a change in a field in the individual Reminder window it closes. This makes creation and updating impossible. From time to time the App just crashes for no apparent reason.
I am using a 27-inch, Late 2013 iMac, 3,5 GHz Intel Core i7, OS X 10.9.4 (13E28).
I had a "To Do" list in iCal running Lion. I just upgraded to Mavericks and now have Calendar and Reminders. My "To Do"s did come across into Mavericks and Reminders.
I found my "To Do" list in Reminders in that when I click "Today" I see reminders for today. When I click on any date on the calendar I see reminders for that day. On my "To Do" list in iCal and Lion I often had items that I didn't have a date on. I called them "Unscheduled". Now for my question.
How can I find my unscheduled items, i.e. those with no due date? How do I get to them? My process used to include reviewing my unscheduled items and if any of them should need to be done, I'd add a date at that time.

I would like to use the 24 hour clock and not have to work about the extra step of AM or PM. Can I set a preference to use the 24 hour clock with Reminders? I can set it with my clock display on the computer but I do not know who to correct with the supporting apps.
Info: MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012), OS X Mavericks (10.9.4)
I just upgraded to MacOSx 10.9.3 (Mavericks) from Mountain Lion. Apple Mail can no longer create a reminder by dragging an email into the reminders icon on the bottom app bar. This was a great function. Was it discontinued in Mavericks, or is this a flaw that I can fix by changing a setting somehow?
It seems that Outlook 2011 Reminders switch the active screen (when using multiple spaces in OSX which I always do) when they pop. This seems to happen whether I have the reminders set to appear on all desktops or just the first desktop. This is hugely annoying when I am in a fullscreen app (e.g. parallels) and suddenly I'm warped over to the first screen again. I'm talking about spaces functionality in OSX, not multiple monitors. This feature. OS X Mavericks: Work in multiple spaces
I have a 4 month brand-new macbook pro which is not heavily used at all, one day my trackpad is working fine, today it is moving around extremely erratically, switching from screen to screen, going to mission control with only one finger swipe etc. I cannot use it at all, I have to use a plug-in mouse. I have checked all my rpeferences for trackpad and nothing has changed. How do I fix this?
Info: MacBook Pro (15-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.3), Trackpad
Just recently my cursor started moving erratically and it's difficult to click where intended. The screen gets big and small without my touching the trackpad. What's wrong - is it a virus or a malfunction in the trackpad? I have an OS X 10.9.5
This began happening recently on my late 2011 MacBook Pro. Nothing new was added. I try to print a message and the application crashes. When I restart it, it's okay. Then it happens again, but only some of the time. Here's the error message. (I found the same error in another query to this community, but there were no answers.)
My mac mail application crashes right when it is opened. Currently I only have my iCloud email and my Gmail being used in Mail. I have narrowed it down to Gmail because it does not crash once that account is removed.
I use Mail on 10.9.3 with multiple IMAP accounts (but almost nothing the servers, all local in many folders). In the last days Mail started to crash several times a day, mostly when I interact with messages (replies, moving to folders, attachment stuff etc.) I am too fast for Mail - but that never was the case before and I have a fast machine and Internet connection.
start getting kernel panel in mavericks quite a few months agoended up taking to apple...diagnosed as hard drive issue, replaced hard-driveafter hard drive replaced, still getting kernel panics (various things including chrome)format and reinstall OS (Mavericks)took back to apple service provided, replaced hard-drive again.Upgraded to Yosemite however in mid 2010 iMac it really slowed things down. Had to take out third party ram because kept result in crashes that quickly lead to damaged sections on hard-drive so had to reintall OS. Only had 4Gb of original apple ram.due to sluggy performance of yosmite, recently (today) "downgraded" to mavericks.Install third party ram back into computer (now have 12 Gb)Experienced 2 kernal panics already. Can't work out what the issues is
This is pretty bare bones. Not much intsalled since "downgraded"to Mavericks. Log below

For the past several months (and only since downloading Mavericks) Finder crashes about 50% of the time I try to name a file on the Desktop. I click the file, hit 'enter', and either right away or while trying to type the first letter, the rainbow spinning wheel comes up and I have to Relaunch Finder.

Relaunching Finder will usually cancel any changes made to the document name before it crashed, and will allow me to then name the file, but usually the next file I try to rename crashes and the process repeats.
On 6/27 I upgraded from 10.8.x (don't remember which version specifically) to 10.9.3. Since then, my 2012 Macbook Pro has been crashing every 20-90 minutes - a complete crash/reboot. The crashes happen regardless of what apps I'm running - there does not seem to be a particular trigger. Upon rebooting, all of the open apps/windows reload and I get the standard "do you want to report this to apple" message. The only time it does NOT crash is if I'm not actively using it - e.g. if I let it go to sleep at night, it will not crash overnight.
Everything was fine before I upgraded to 10.9.3, and I have made no other changes to my setup.
The first thing I tried was creating a new user so I could see if the problem was isolated to my user account - the crashes persisted even on a completely new user. Next, I tried booting from partition and erasing the hard drive entirely, reinstalling the OS, and then choosing "setup from time capsule" - no dice; still crashes. Finally, I tried creating a new user and then using "migration assistant" to migrate my user info, and while the migration assistant itself worked just fine, it's still crashing.
(Unfortunately, my time capsule backup is from right AFTER I upgraded to 10.9.3, so that might be the reason that those "solutions" didn't fix anything)
At this point I would even be willing to start completely from scratch (at least I could import all of my documents, music, etc from my hard drive), but there is no way for me to force it to start "fresh" - if I boot from partition so I can erase the hard drive and then reinstall the OS, I can't get past the Disk Utility screen (so my only option is to set up from the time capsule!).
I'm able to open the app but it won't display any of the actual details of my emails. When I try to open them standalone the app crashes too. Tried googling for fixes, most of them include Terminal which seemingly won't open anymore either.
Must note that I haven't deleted anything or downloaded anything untoward since this error started occurring.
Pasted from the error log of my mail app:
Process: Mail  Path: /Applications/Mail.app/Contents/MacOS/Mail Identifier: com.apple.mail
I'm currently on Mavericks version 10.9.3. This doesn't happen all the time, but sometimes two or 3 times a day. While working, whenever I would use hot corners to activate Exposé, my screen would freeze and Finder would restart.I usually have the following apps running: ChromeSpotifySlackMac MailSafariCord.
Just upgraded from Mountain Lion to Mavericks 10.9.3 on a 2012 Mac Mini 4 core. When attempting to add an attachment to an email, both Mac Mail and Thunderbird start with the spinning beachball and never recover. Force Quit is the only option. Even after that, the Finder has strange screen artifacts left over from Mail (attach file dialog box) and Finder must be relaunched as well.
Dragging and dropping files works okay with Mac Mail. This option does not exist when using Thunderbird, so no workaround available for that App. Also, Mac Mail only gets stuck when attempting to attach files on the desktop. Files from other locations attach OK.
Already tried Repair Permissions, Repair Disk, Reinstalled Mavericks with no change. For now, I have gone back to Mountain Lion since this is a deal breaker, even though everything else seems to work ok (except for the occasional brief spinning beach ball).
