Finder issue after Mavericks and LibreOffice

The upgrade to Mavericks was ok, only for one detail: it deleted the LibreOffice from apps.
After the re-install of LO, Finder got a bug: when it arranges/organizes files per Type, it shows, at top (before the folders) files (documents) related to LO (docs, odts, odgs, etc).
I've tryed changing to None, than back to Type. Uninstalled LO. But the problem persists: it does not show Folders at top in any folder that has a doc or odt file in it.
Any ideas? Thanks.

Ciao Von Stripes,
I've just found the solution:
Open - System Preferences, then open - Spotlight
There is a list of categories.
Find - Files on the list, then click, drag and drop to the position number 1 and "voilá"
I hope it works for you too...

  • App Store Issues After Mavericks Update

    Hi. I upgraded from Mountain Lion to Mavericks yesterday.
    When I run the App Store app, it shows that IMovie is available for an update. When I click the update button, I get a message saying my IMac (bought in late 2007) doesn't have the video card requirements for the new version of IMovie. The problem is that every time I run the App Store app, it still lists IMovie as an update. Is there a way to prevent it for continuing to list IMovie as an update?
    I also own IWork '09. After I updgraded to Mavericks yesterday, I was able to download the new Pages, Numbers and Keynote for free. Apparently, the download also slightly updated the versions from IWork '09.  Today, I ran the App Store app again, and it redownloaded the updated '09 versions of Pages, Numbers and Keynote. I have no idea why it downloaded them all again. Is there any way to stop it from doing it again?

    I had this issue on 3 different macs when upgrading to Mavericks. 
    I resolved it by deleting the Compressor app and the "Compressor" and "Apple Qmaster" folders from Library\Application Support\, emptying the trash, rebooting the computer and reinstalling from the App Store.
    Unfortunately this did delete all of my encoding presets and qmaster cluster/settings but the app is up and running again.
    Also Get Info on the Compressor app after reinstalling and disable App Nap.
    Good luck!

  • Is there a known issue with Mavericks and Outlook 2011 printing?

    Title says it all. I was reading up on past forums both Apple/Microsoft when 10.6.8 messed up Outlook printing, was wondering if anyone else is having a similar issue. I am currently on 10.9.2. I began noticing the issues after updating to 10.9.2.
    To clarify, as a user I can open attached documents from Outlook 2011 and print them that way. But if I use  Command + P, or right click, or any other method I cannot print the actual message of the email. The icon will blink when proper keys are pressed but it will do nothing. Nothing is pending in print queue either.

  • MAJOR Wireless, Safari, Dock & Finder issues after latest updates

    I'm having major issues after the latest AirPort, Security Fix and Safari updates in 10.5.2: Safari keeps crashing every hour, Wireless connections time out and Airport occasionally crashes when I try to turn it off/on. Sometimes the systems gets stalled and has lag - I'm not sure if Safari crashing is causing this or it's the system that causes Safari to freeze and crash - often the dock becomes unresponsive too and makes me force shutdown and reboot. I've had to reboot like this more than 4 times today, something isn't right. My questions, therefore:
    1) Is there a way to restore my Mac to the state BEFORE the latest upgrades?
    2) I can't recall the exact names and versions of the updates, is there a way to access the update log files, so that I can take notes on what actually was updated and when?
    3) Is there any other way to access log files that may have more information on the crashes that I've had lately?
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Reinis,
    In this situation, the first thing I would do is log into a different user account (if you do not have one, create one) and then see if the symptoms persist with the new user account. To directly answer your questions:
    1) Is there a way to restore my Mac to the state BEFORE the latest upgrades?
    Archive and Install using the OS DVD or by using Time Machine if you have it enabled.
    2) I can't recall the exact names and versions of the updates, is there a way to access the update log files, so that I can take notes on what actually was updated and when?
    Fire up System Preferences, click on the Software Update icon and then select the Installed Updates tab.
    3) Is there any other way to access log files that may have more information on the crashes that I've had lately?
    Console, which is in your Applications/Utilities folder.

  • Cd burning issue after installing and updating snow leopard

    After installing and updating snow leapard to the latest version, the cd burner for i-tunes quit working.  it says" burning disk initializing" then "burning disk finishing"  comes up with the error "the attempt to burn a disk failed.  the disc drive didn't respond properly and can't recover or retry.  Any suggestions to fix this problem?

    First try other disks, brand new, then try another brand, then consider backup user files and (clean and polish then) c booting off the 10.6.3 disk and simply reinstalling OS X then updating to 10.6.8 again.
    Hopefully this should fix the issue in OS X software, you may have to reinstall certain third party software again that it's kext files got kicked out of OS X by the reinstall.
    If you get hung booting at any time, simply hold the shift key down and then update your software then reboot normally

  • Finder issues in Mavericks

    I am having MAJOR issues with finder since upgrading to Mavericks. I am a full time professional wedding photographer and use cover flow constantly to sort through images. Ever since I upgraded to mavericks, It is not working correctly. When I forst open a folder it will show the file names but the cover flow only shows the first few images. Once I close and reopen they are back. but... when looking at files, if I press the space bar to view them up close it does not open the file that is highlighted. It will open the one after or before.  also... if I am moving a file to a different folder, it will move the wrong one no matter what view I am using. It is VERY FRUSTRATING and is causing my work flow to suffer. I have 3 different machines and it is the same issue on all of them.
    It does not happen on my wife's older macbook pro as I have not upgraded the OS yet. PLEASE HELP!!

    Finder has some bugs. Hopefully a 10.9.1 update will resolve some of these issue.

  • How to auto close finder window after drag and drop?

    In Tiger, I would file away items on my desktop my dragging them to the hard drive and then digging down to the appropriate folder. The finder window would then close automatically after dropping the file. Is there a setting in Snow Leopard that will enable similar functionality? Whenever I complete a drag and drop now the finder window just stays open, which isn't a huge issue, but I'd still like to change it. Thanks!

  • Flickering Screen issue after Mavericks update released on Feb 26, 2014

    I own a Macbook Retina display bought in early 2014. After installing the recent Maverick update released around Feb 26, 2014 the display developed flickering problem while scrolling and now the scrolling is not smooth any more. The originally shipped machine did not have this problem. I tested other software including Photoshop and the display still flickers while panning the canvas. I also tried resetting the SMC - System Management Controller but it didn't work along with other attempts of resetting the disk permissions, running a systems cleaner, changing the wifi-router etc.
    How to fix this flickering screen issue?

    The problem came back lately and I tried this solution and it worked. Go to system settings > power saver > and switch off the Automatic Graphic switching. Not sure if this is a good solution, but it seem to have worked for the time being.

  • Permissions issue after Mavericks upgrade

    I have just updated an early 2008 IMac with OSX Mavericks.
    All software running fine, but I noticed occassionally I was getting an authentication prompt on some files, didn't follow, but simply authenticated as and when I need to, I assumed it was when I moved files from my Mac Pro to my Imac.
    Having run the upgrade however, I get an error message to contact the vendor (Battlefront) as my copy of Combat Mission Battle for Normandy has lost its license.
    After the upgrade I had also purchased from the same vendor Combat Mission Fortress Italy. Having downloaded this and gone to run after copying to applications, this software gives me an error message saying unknown developer so I have got no where near installing a license.
    Having contacted the vendor and tried to get a work around, I am now getting the message it is you Mac not our software, despite the fact that all my other software is working fine (and the fact that the Combat Mission Battle for Normandy game worked fine until the upgrade).
    I do feel some sympathy for them, I do think the Mac has some sort of permission issue - I also probably compounded this by deleting a user which I did not recognise called 'wheel' which I suspect now is some form of default permisison.
    Anyone got any ideas, how do I 'reset' the system - I have tried fixing the permissions through disk utility.
    My vendor got me to run a sudo command through Terminal, but I got the message...
    sudo: unable to stat /etc/sudoers: Permission denied
    sudo: no valid sudoers sources found, quitting

    Update Saturday Jan 4, 2014
    Before my Mavericks upgrade on my Mac Pro, no problems ever (use my Mac 4-8 hours a day) using my Bose Companion 5 USB connected speakers. I've tried shutting the Mac down and plugging the Bose USB cable into another open USB port = no joy and other combinations. I tested the same Bose Companion 5 USB speakers on two other laptops with NO issues (ouch...they were running Windows 7) I have deleted the two .plist files, did the CMD+OPT+P+R reset, etc... = no change. Looked into Midi Audio Setup and did not see anything in there to change even though I tried a couple of things and no avail (there was no Garageband setting/entry).
    I still get a solid "BEEEEEEEEP" sound every 20+ seconds, when the sounds tries to toggle, by itself, between the Bose USB Audio device and the Internal Speakers.

  • Issues with Mavericks and Photoshop and Illustrator Cs6

    My illustrator cs6 and photoshop are unable to save documents, every time I try to save or save as the save window keeps disappearing. Occasionally I can save if I am really quick, but on average this is not an option,
    The same happens when I try and open something through either program, the open window disappears before I can click on anything.
    I can open psd or ai docs in finder but just not in the program.
    This has only happened since I installed Mavericks.
    any help?

    Same problem for me with CS5 so I downloaded the trial version of Photoshop CC--same problem again and Adobe does not know how to fix the issue.
    For a while holding down the shift key while opening Photoshop worked, then it failed yesterday. I'll try Alljeffedup's key combination solution.
    Current workaround is the Open With command in the finder.

  • Scanning Issue with Maverick and Office Jet Pro 8600

    Just wanted to add my voice to the numerous problem reports.  Specifically:
    1)  I could scan just fine until I upgraded to Maverick (Mac OS 10.9)
    2)  to address the problem, I downloaded the latest HP drivers for 10.9-didn't help
    3)  Tried to use the separate HP Scan application-no luck; couldn't fine the computer (even though I have been printing regularly)
    4)  Based on the HP problem solution posting (which seems a bit out of date), tried to uninstall the software and reinstall; the uninstall would not complete, although it did delete all of my printers.
    It appears that it is finally time to abandon HP for printers, if they can't keep up with Apple's releases.

    Hi amaltz,
    I understand you are having an issue with the scan software working with Mavericks. I can't help you with this. My suggestion is to completely remove all HP software from the computer and reinstall. Follow the instructions below to resolve the issue.
    Open the Applications folder > HP or Hewlett Packard folder > HP Uninstaller
    Click continue, click on one of the printers in the list.
    Hold down Control, Option and Command
    While holding the three buttons down, Click uninstall.
    Reset Printing System
    Click the Apple icon (     ), and then click  System Preferences.
    In the Hardware section, click Print & Fax/Scan. The Print & Fax/Scan  dialog box opens.
    Right-click (or Ctrl +click) in the left panel, and then click Reset printing system…
    Click OK to confirm the reset.
    Type the correct Name  and Password.
    Click OK to reset the printing system. The Print & Fax dialog box shows no printer selected
    Note: This will remove all printers in the print and Fax/Scan, any printer removed can be re-added later by clicking the plus (+) symbol.
    Repair Disk Permissions (I know many of you have done this but because we have now done a scrub it is good measure to ensure non of your permissions differ)
    On the Dock, click Applications, and then click Utilities.
    Double-click Disk Utility.
    Highlight your hard drive/partition on the left (by default this is "Macintosh HD").
    Click the Repair Disk Permissions button at the bottom of the window.
    Once the repair is complete, restart the computer.
    Restart the computer.
    Now you will have a fresh start and be able to reinstall the software. Please let me know if this resolves the issue you are experiencing. If it does not, I will gladly follow up.
    Please click the Thumbs up icon below to thank me for responding.
    Please click “Accept as Solution” if you feel my post solved your issue, it will help others find the solution.

  • IOS 4 photo issue after downloading and deleting in iPhoto

    black blocks show up where the removed photos are, until a new photo is taken. any ideas ?

    That's an iPhone OS issue. I read there was a problem with photos on the iPhone after upgrading to OS 4. Check the iPhone forums.
    Can you set the iPhone into disk mode? If so you might be able to find the photos that way and drag to the Desktop.
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto (iPhoto.Library for iPhoto 5 and earlier versions) database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
    I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger or later), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. There are versions that are compatible with iPhoto 5, 6, 7 and 8 libraries and Tiger and Leopard. Just put the application in the Dock and click on it whenever you want to backup the dB file. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.
    NOTE: The new rebuild option in iPhoto 09 (v. 8.0.2), Rebuild the iPhoto Library Database from automatic backup" makes this tip obsolete.

  • Bootcamp Issues after Mavericks Upgrade

    I was happily running ML, Win 7 and VMware Fusion on a MBP Mid 2010 then decided to upgrade to Mavericks. After sucessfully performing the upgrade and updating Fusion to the latest version I found that the Win 7 VM would throw an "operation failed on rdisk0s4 " after around 10 minutes. I can boot into Win 7 and it runs fine but won't in the VM. I thought it may be a Fusion problem so I installed Parallels and it has the same issue. I'm assuming the Mavericks upgrade did something to the Bootcamp partition. Disk Utility shows the Bootcamp partition and everything looks ok. I did notice that in Disk Utility the partition is named Bootcamp but after the VM failure it is named rdisk0s4.
    Could the partition name be part of the issue here? i've seen some issues with others losing the Bootcamp partition from the boot menu after a Mavericks upgrade but not this problem.
    I have a Winclone backup of the Win 7 partition but it's not that recent and now Winclone fails on the creation of a clone process. Somehow I don't think restoring a Winclone backup is going to sort this out. I'd appreciate some expert opinions on this problem.

    The size of the MS Data should be roughly the sum of the 'gap' (107,422,440) and GPT 4 (86,753,280), which is roughly 90+ GB. Your current disk0s4 is about 45GB. In Testdisk you should skip the smaller 6174 and 28800 or similar sized entries.
