Can you copy/paste files from the Finder to Mail in Lion, or drag them onto the Mail icon in the Dock to create a new message and attach the files to it?

Message title says it: Can you copy/paste files from the Finder to Mail in Lion, or drag them onto the Mail icon in the Dock to create a new message and attach the files to it?
I can't find anything in the Knowledge Base that says these two options no longer work or still do.
I do not have a system capable of running Lion, but I need to know the answer nonetheless.

Gee, I don't know: "paste attachments mail Lion"? ;-)
One further question, if I may: in Panther (which is where I've aggregated nearly 7 years of mail), if you copy more than one file in the Finder, switch to Mail, and paste the files into a new message, only the file names paste in. If you copy one file and paste it into a Mail message, you get the file, not just the name. Is that still true, or has that (IMHO) bug been fixed since 10.3.9?

  • I just restored my 13" MBP i5 at the apple store to the newest version of Lion after issues with a previous Time Machine backup from Snow Leopard- this time I created a new account and just ported files and folders, and now MS Office doesn't work. Help?

    I just restored my 13" MBP i5 at the apple store to the newest version of Lion after issues with a previous Time Machine backup from Snow Leopard- this time I created a new account and just ported files and folders, and now MS Office doesn't work.
    ^^ that's the main problem. Here's the full history.
    I bought a new 13" i5 MBP, early 2011 edition. I had an old white Macbook 2.14 ghz core2duo on Snow Leopard. I attempted to port over my time machine backup, but encountered problems in that my User was inaccessible from the new computer after the import finished, and I had to go in and change the root password, etc, and for some reason or another, I couldn't install any programs at all from that administrator's account. By "couldn't" I mean I could install them, but upon installation they would never boot. So, I took it to the apple store and did a clean install from the most up to date Lion OSX. Then, I created a brand new admin account, instead of trying to import the old one, and things seemed great. Then, I just imported my old files from the TM backup, but not any system settings, permissions, or user data. Just my Docs, pics, vids, apps, and itunes stuff.
    Here's where things get weird again. I imported this stuff under the name "old", but all of these folders have a red negative sign on them, marking them as restricted. So, from my main admin account, I cannot even peruse these folders. Since I didn't import user data, I can't sign in to the "old" account to change permissions. I already tried to change the permissions from system preferences, but that didn't change anything. And now, for whatever reason, of all the apps that were imported then, MS Office is the only set of apps that does not work. When I click on it, it just says there was a problem and asks if I'd like to send a report to apple. I tried reinstalling it to no avail. I'm an English student, so i really need access to Word. Can anyone help? The Apple store is a major detour for me and would like to fix this issue myself.

    Most likely you have Office 2004 which are PPC-only applications and will not work in Lion. Upgrade to Office 2011. Other alternatives are:
    Apple's iWork suite (Pages, Numbers, and Keynote.)
    Open Office (Office 2007-like suite compatible with OS X.)
    NeoOffice (similar to Open Office.)
    LibreOffice (a new direction for the Open Office suite.)

  • I "reply"ed to an e-mail message. The next time when I chose to write a new message and type the first letter of the person I replied to earlier, that name and e-mail address appears as a choice included in a pop up list of my contacts.

    I "reply"ed to an e-mail message. The next time when I chose to write a new message and type the first letter of the person I replied to earlier, that name and e-mail address appears as a choice included in a pop up list of my contacts. The persons name is not in my contacts and I would like to delete it from popping up. Do you know how I can do this?

    The Mail app on the iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch does have an option to clear previous recipients. You can learn to live with it.  But if you want to get rid of it, the only way to remove these cached email addresses from the Mail application is restoring the iPhone/iPod Touch as a new phone/iPod.  If you restore from backup, the cache is also restored.
    This article shows you the screens you will see during the restore:  http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1414

  • How can I copy/paste text from one page to another?

    I feel like I am taking crazy pills... is there really no way to copy a text box (or group) from one page to another while creating books in Aperture 3?  Lets say I have my entire book laid out and I want to add one paragraph at the end on one page which will push text and photos down a half page or so... in most programs for the last decade or so they added really cool functionality... cut/paste...  It seems like the apple developers are aware of it because they are in the context menus but they don't work on text, only photo boxes.  Additionally, you can copy/paste text but it erases all formatting.
    Seriously, am I missing something?  I have trouble believing that they can't include this function.
    Anyone else have this issue?

    Update... it seems to only happen with text boxes which I create.  So when I try an existing theme I can cut/copy/paste just fine, but in that same theme if you edit the layout and add a new text box, I can't copy paste it anywhere... the options are in the menu but nothing happens.
    Thoughts? Solutions?
    I am running 3.4.3 on a MacBook Pro OS X 10.8.3

  • Can't copy-paste images from Noteshelf in iOS6

    Hi,
    I use an app called Noteshelf (v7.0). In iOS5, I was able to copy-paste pictures from Noteshelf into other apps, such as Keynote (v1.7.1) or in an email. However, since I upgraded to iOS6, this doesn't work anymore. As the versions of Noteshelf and Keynote are the same, the logical conclusion is that something has changed in the copy-paste functionality of iOS6. Can somebody tell me about this and, better still, give me a fix for it?
    Thanks!

  • How can I copy-paste text from Firefox to Apple Mail preserving all formatting? It works with Safari but not with Firefox, otherwise I'd pick Firefox

    I have a very big list of correspondents to whom I often send articles.
    I cannot copy them from Firefox and paste them onto Apple Mail because they look WEIRD and not at all like the original. Most formatting disappears.
    I do not encounter the same problem with Safari, and THAT is one of the two reasons I am forced to use it even if it gives me lots of problems.
    The other one is that Safari 5 has a built-in RSS reader, which is essential for my work.
    If you could manage to have those two things working, I'd pick Firefox in a second and advertise the fact to thousands who would do the same.

    Try one of these feed readers if the build-in Firefox reader doesn't suit you.

  • HT2488 I imported pictures into iPhoto from my iPhone, when trying to find my pictures by clicking on iPhoto Library it is always empty. I had to create a new folder and copy the same exact pics in the new folder just to be able to access them.. help plea

    I imported photos into iPhoto from my iPhone, however i cannot access them. When clicking on iPhoto Library where they should be stored the folder is blank but if i open up iphoto from the dock menu they appear. I had to create a new folder just to access them. help please, because making a new folder takes up unnecessary space.

    There are many, many ways to access your files in iPhoto:   You can use any Open / Attach / Browse dialogue. On the left there's a Media heading, your pics can be accessed there. Command-Click for selecting multiple pics.
    (Note the above illustration is not a Finder Window. It's the dialogue you get when you go File -> Open)
    You can access the Library from the New Message Window in Mail:
    There's a similar option in Outlook and many, many other apps.  If you use Apple's Mail, Entourage, AOL or Eudora you can email from within iPhoto.
    If you use a Cocoa-based Browser such as Safari, you can drag the pics from the iPhoto Window to the Attach window in the browser.
    If you want to access the files with iPhoto not running:
    For users of 10.6 and later:  You can download a free Services component from MacOSXAutomation  which will give you access to the iPhoto Library from your Services Menu.
    Using the Services Preference Pane you can even create a keyboard shortcut for it.
    For Users of 10.4 and 10.5 Create a Media Browser using Automator (takes about 10 seconds) or use this free utility Karelia iMedia Browser
    Other options include:
    Drag and Drop: Drag a photo from the iPhoto Window to the desktop, there iPhoto will make a full-sized copy of the pic.
    File -> Export: Select the files in the iPhoto Window and go File -> Export. The dialogue will give you various options, including altering the format, naming the files and changing the size. Again, producing a copy.
    Show File:  a. On iPhoto 09 and earlier:  Right- (or Control-) Click on a pic and in the resulting dialogue choose 'Show File'. A Finder window will pop open with the file already selected.    3.b.
    b: On iPhoto 11 and later: Select one of the affected photos in the iPhoto Window and go File -> Reveal in Finder -> Original. A Finder window will pop open with the file already selected.

  • Can I copy/Paste Markers From Clip to Clip

    I have a .dv clip that I have embed markers at the browser. It is a PAL.dv clip I extracted from a PAL DVD a customer wants edited down to 20 minutes from 1:30:00. Used MPEG StreamClip to rip to disc, but, for some reason, there are dropped frames (it plays back with stutters). So, I re-ripped the DVD to Quicktime DVCPRO-PAL and the video seems crisper and does not seem to have the dropped frames.
    However, I have already embedded 40+ extended markers in the DV clip, and I am hoping to just copy ALL the markers and paste embed them into the MOV clip. The timecodes on the two clips are identical.
    In lieu of copy/paste, can I import an EDL or EML list to apply the extended-markers to the new mov clip?
    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Right. Got it. Those markers are in the clip itself.
    I just tried something as an experiment:
    Drop your clip into the Timeline. You will see that the markers are on the video track -not in the time bar of the Timeline. So shift > arrow down will not move your playhead to the next marker.
    Make the Viewer the active window. Press shift arrow down. Press F (match frame). Now the timeline window is active. Press M (places a marker in the Timeline). Repeat for your other markers.
    Swap the video file in the Timeline for the better version. Drag the clip from the Timeline back to the browser.
    You now have your new source clip with markers.
    Not exactly copy and paste, but it's all I have at the moment.

  • Can you copy Subtitle Streams from one project to another?

    I inserted subtitles onto a track and would like to use the same subtitles on a new track; can I copy them and paste them into the new project?
    How can I do this?
    Many thanks!

    What you can do is export the item description for the track (File->Export->Item Description) which will export the track, including the subtitles. Then import that back into the project or new project, subtitles will come in, though you would need to change the video portion (if needed).

  • When I create a new track and region, the new region copies the previous region contents; why?

    In trying to experiment with new instruments included in 10.1. , I create a new instrument track and region, nominate the new instrument, and... I see that the empty region I just created isn't empty at all, it is filled with the notes created in a previous track, and no sound... is this a glitch or am I doing something wrong?

    You can highlight the URL in the Location Bar of a Tab you want to duplicate and use '''{Alt + Enter}''' or you can '''Middle-click the Reload button''' at the right-side of the Location Bar (no need to highlight the URL there).
    Both of those methods will work whether you have '''''Tabs on Top''''' selected or not.

  • How to create a new workspace and change the name of the existing

    Hi,
    can any one help me how to create a new workspace in application express 3.1 on XE DB and how to change the name of a existing workspace.
    thanks

    Jana,
    This is discussed at length in the User's Guide. See the section "Creating Workspaces".
    To rename a workspace using the admin application, edit the workspace attributes and type a new name in the field where the old name appears, then Apply Changes.

  • How can you copy a table from Safari to Numbers

    I am in the process of migrating from open office to Numbers, since Numbers really does look a lot nicer… however there is one point that I cannot find how to do in Numbers.
    If I select a table in Safari, then in Open Office I can paste that table, and it will go into the rows/columns as a table. How can I do something similar in Numbers?

    Welcome to the Apple forums
    Safari & Numbers have improved in recognizing a table on a web page & pasting it as expected.
    Often what looks like a table on a web page really isn't & the blame should be on the web page author not Safari or Numbers. I had this problem for a few years with my online Discover Card statements. Using Firefox or Camino made no difference. When I complained to them their response was "tough, live with it" although maybe not in those exact words. I would paste the data into a Pages document & use a lot of find & replace to get the data formatted to use in a Numbers spreadsheet.
    But… it could be that the problem you're having is that you have the cursor active in the cell when you paste. If the cursor is active Numbers "thinks" you want to paste everything into that cell. Click outside the table then click once on the starting cell, making sure that the cell is outlined but you don't see the cursor & then paste. This is a much more common cause than above.
