Help with Preview formatting please

Since upgrading to OS X (10.7.3), all Word documents, when opened in Preview, appear as a single sheet without top and bottom margins. They also print like this, just running on and on without a break. This doesn't happen with PDFs and didn't happen prior to the upgrade.  Does anyone have any ideas how to correct this, pls?

Hello ekrapple,
Thank you for using Apple Support Communities!
Sounds like your Pages documents are not printing out correctly.
I suggest these troubleshooting steps from this article:
Troubleshooting printer issues in OS X
Use Software Update to find and install the latest available updates. If an update is installed, see if the issue persists.
Open the Print & Scan pane or Print & Fax (Snow Leopard) pane in System Preferences.
Delete the affected printer, then add the printer again.
If the issue persists, try these additional steps:
Reset the printing system, then add the printer again.
If the issue still persists, reset the printing system again.  Download and install your printer's drivers. Then, add the printer again.
Contact the printer vendor or visit their website for further assistance.

  • Help with Audio Formats please

    Hello everybody,
    I have a problem with the Java AudioFormat class, can you help me please?
    The thing is Im working on a voice chat using the following audio format settings:
    AudioFormat(AudioFormat.Encoding.PCM_SIGNED, sampleRate, sampleSize, 1, 1, frameRate, false);
    audioReadBytes = 1024;
    sampleRate = 8000.0F;
    frameRate = 8000.0F;
    sampleSize = 8;
    My problem is that these settings can cause incrementing voice delay and sometimes even block the application. It works fine on a LAN but on the internet it never works.
    I wanted to ask you if there�s a better audioformat setting that can decrease the size and quality of the sound, so it works on low bandwidths.
    I�m new to audio formats so I don�t understand them much and when I tried to change the settings by decreasing the sample rate I didn�t get what I expected.
    Please help me...
    Thanks a lot,

    Based on the concept of Unity in a gain chain, if you set the levels properly at the output of the analog mixer, then they should be fine coming into the software after the A/D conversion. As long as you don't clip the digital input, you can adjust levels internally on an audio timeline, so it is always better to err on the side of too little rather than too much.
    Digital maximum is -20 dB which is equivalent to 0 dB VU in the analog world. This provides sufficient headroom to avoid clipping in most circumstance.
    Try a few different levels and see what works best for your needs.

  • Help with video formats, please!

    I posted this topic once before, but got no replies. I don't mean to spam up the forums, but I would really like a response. I'm having a problem with putting videos on my iPod Nano. Currently, my videos are in MP4 format, but they're not loading onto the ipod. I can load MOV files, but the matter of converting my MP4 files to MOV files still remains a challenge. I've downloaded converters from the internet, but they're only trials and thus cut the video runtimes in half. If anyone could tell me why my MP4s aren't loading, or where I can find a free converter that won't cut the runtime of my videos, I would be ever so grateful. Thanks in advance!

    No, multiplexed wouldn't be the issue. The iPod will still play them but multiplexed files that have been converted to the iPod often lose sound because of multiplexing, but will still play.

  • Help with access control please

    So I'm trying to set up my brother's PSP to the wirless network through MAC address timed access. What I want to do is make it so that he can only access it through certain times in the day. I'm having troubles with actually getting it to work. Everytime I set it up, the PSP only show's up as a DHCP client and not a Wireless client. I tried the option panel with the add wireless clients through the first try access. Could I get some help with this issue please? Thanks!

    Just to calm your fears... There is no conspiracy. If someone had an answer or a suggestion they would post it.

  • Help with built-in (please) set_group_number_cell

    I am working on a form. The original problem is when I hit a certain button within the form,
    it is supposed to keep the fields the same, but mark the record as new and
    assigin it a new id/row number. Kind of like copying the fields to a new record.
    Initially, when the button was pressed , it would put a zero in the front of the
    year (with the format mask being MM/DD/YYYY) it would change a date such as
    01/16/2000 to 01/16/0200.
    I do not know if it ever worked in the first place, or is not working because we just
    moved the forms from 4.5 to 6i - for a customer..
    I went through and tried to put the to_number functions and the to_date functions
    where they belonged(I think) but now the set_group_number cell function fails.
    Here is the code:
    FUNCTION copy_one_rec_to_recordgroup (
    block_name     varchar
    RETURN varchar
    rg_id          recordgroup;
    rg_name          varchar2 (50);

    p_output.out_debug ('p_block.copy_one_rec_to_recordgroup');
    -- Make sure a valid block was specified.
    validate_exists (block_name, 'p_block.copy_one_rec_to_recordgroup');
    -- Create the record group based on the block definition.
    rg_name := p_record_group.create_rg_from_block (block_name);
    rg_id := find_group     (rg_name);
    -- Populate     the first row of the record group 1 field at a time.
    add_group_row (rg_id, END_OF_GROUP);
    the_item_name := get_block_property     (block_name, first_item);
    -- If the item is a     data item and it's value is not     null,

    Sorry for such a long post. If you can ... please help! Thanks!

    Here is a shorter and more efficient version of your code - apart from the removal of the debugging calls, note the following changes:
    1) Rather than doing everything twice - once for the first item then in a loop for all the rest, everything is now done in the loop
    2) The format mask used by the date manipulation is the actual one used by NAME_IN() - to make this work I'd recommend that you use
    SET_APPLICATION_PROPERTY(BUILTIN_DATE_FORMAT,'DD-MON-YYYY'); in your startup code e.g. When-New-Form-Instance
    3) The item ID is used rather than the name to speed up access and calls to get_item_property() are only made once we know they are needed - e.g. there is not need to get the datatype and value if you already know that this is a button item.
    FUNCTION copy_one_rec_to_recordgroup ( block_name in varchar2 ) RETURN varchar2 IS
      rg_id recordgroup;
      rg_name varchar2 (30);
      the_item ITEM;  
      the_item_name varchar2(30);  
      the_data varchar2(256);
      the_formatmask varchar2(30) := GET_APPLICATION_PROPERTY(BUILTIN_DATE_FORMAT);
      the_property varchar2(20);
      the_datatype varchar2(10);
      -- Create the record group based on the block definition.
      rg_name := p_record_group.create_rg_from_block (block_name);
      rg_id := find_group (rg_name);
      -- Populate the first row of the record group 1 field at a time.
      add_group_row (rg_id, END_OF_GROUP);
      the_item_name := get_block_property (block_name, first_item);
        the_item := find_item(block_name||'.'||the_item_name);
        if get_item_property (the_item, item_type) not in ('BUTTON') then
          the_data     := name_in(block_name||'.'||the_item_name);
          if the_data is not null then
         the_datatype := get_item_property(the_item,  datatype) ;
         if the_datatype in ('DATE') then
         elsif the_datatype in ('NUMBER') then
           set_group_number_cell(rg_name||'.'|| the_item_name,1,to_number(the_data));
           set_group_char_cell (rg_name || '.' || the_item_name, 1,the_data);
         end if;
          end if;

  • Help with photo albums Please

    Hi, i really need some help with my pictures, I've only got a very basic understanding of how my phone works and have somehow put a load of albums on my phone when i plugged it into the computer-I want to delete some of them off the phone but cannot work out how to do it, when i plug my phone in i can find the photo tab but cannot actually see the pictures and can't see any delete button!!! Please can someone help me, basic explanations would be gratefully recieved xxxx

    The photo sync is one way: computer to phone. To remove photos, synced to your phone, remove the check marks next to the albums/folders under the photos tab in itunes & hit the apply/sync button. They will be removed from your phone. You cannot delete photos that were synced to your phone, directly on your phone. The easiest way to manage photos synced to your phone is to create albums or folders on your computer. Move whatever photos you want on your phone into these albums/folders & then select them under the photos tab in itunes to sync to your phone. You can then remove or add photos to these various albums/folders on your computer & the itunes sync process will update your phone every time you sync.

  • Help with re-formatting a PDF for easy printing by anyone?

    I used a template to create a new professional resume, and edited this template in Adobe Fireworks CS3.  It looks good now, but when I try and create a PDF with it, I can't seem to figure out how to make sure it will print properly on a 8.5x11 without the document shrinking or getting skewed.  Can someone help or recommend a service that can optimize my PNG or PDF file to that whoever I send it to will be able to easily view and print it on most any computer?
    [email address deleted by host]

    Thanks for your response.  My OS is Leopard I believe, but am not at my computer right now.  I took a template from a website which must've been in PNG format, and the default application to edit it with was Fireworks I guess. I have it both in PNG and PDF format, I'll forward it to you if you have a minute to take a look.  My whole idea was to create a newer PDF resume with style/format that will stand out far above from my word resume (boring).

    Please can you help.
    Thank you very much in advance.

    Thanks for that. I have tried it on a new page: and here is the validator : %28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0&No200=1- unfortunately loads of errors
    I also tried the recommended template:

  • Help with button code please?

    I am a novice and have just completed my first animated movie. I need help with action script.
    The movie is currently looped and I have created and invisible button the size of the frame with the intention that a user can click on the movie image to stop it and on second click continue the movie from where it stopped.
    I have used the AS event handler method to stop the movie. I have tested it and it works. But I cannot figure suitable code to restart the movie.
    Two questions;
    1. am I going about the task the right way? (should I use two buttons, one stop, one start)?
    2. if my approach is feasible, can anyone give me the correct AS to re-start the movie and put me out of my misery please?

    you can use the following after changing "yourbutton" and "yourmovieclip" to use suitable instance names:

  • Help with Required fields-PLEASE

    I have been attempting to get help with a required field and one of the forum helpers said he got it to work for me but I cannot and I have not been able to get any more responses from him to help me further.
    I am attempting to have a radio box when the YES is selected to require another field to be completed.  The script I was provided with is:
    getField("Location").required = (getField("Group1").value == "Yes");
    Location being the field that I require to be filled in if Group 1 is Yes.  The previous forum helper indicated that I had to have this script in both fields in Group 1 and when I do that, nothing different happens. 
    What am I doing wrong? 
    Please, I need to fix this right away and I will be using this java script on many other forms that I have so I need to get this done soon.
    Thank you in advance.

    Wht you want can get somewhat complicated. One way to prevent subsequent fields from being used is to set them to read-only and/or hidden. You could then use the Validate event of the text field to validate the entry and enable the subsequent fields if it is filled-in adequately. In general, you should also reset the fields whenever you hide them, so they don't contain potentially invalid data from previously being filled-in. So you could initially have the fields set to be hidden, and only unhide them if No is selected, or if Yes is selected and the required text field is filled-in.
    I realize this may not be as helpful as you had hoped for, but I can't suggest specific code without knowing more about the form.

  • Help with a routine please

    Hi experts!
    I have a requirement and I need help with an abap routine.
    I'm uploading a table from de ECC where each record contains one key figure per fiscal period (wlt01, wlt02,...wlt16). I need to have in a dso a unique key figure (called zwlt for instance) and the 0fiscper infoobject filled with the corresponding period, that is, for each record of the table, I need 16 records in the DSO with zwlt = wltXX and the fiscper = fiscyear&0&XX.
    Any help please?
    Thanks in advance.

    there are multiple ways to handle this.
    one way is to use APD to unpivot the data.
    or else you can use the following sample code to derive what you want...this code might just hint at the way to proceed.

  • Help with UILabel subclass please

    Hello all... I have a UILabel subclass I call CustomLabel. Ive been googling and reading the apple docs this entire week to figure this out. The few examples Ive seen, I dont think Im doing it right.
    Im trying to create a subclass to use throughout my project. Every label will have these properties so I figured why not subclass. So through a lot of trial and error I ended up with this...
    #import <UIKit/UIKit.h>
    @interface CustomLabel : UILabel {
    @property (nonatomic) CGSize shadowOffset;
    @property (nonatomic) UITextAlignment *textAlignment;
    @property (nonatomic, retain) UIColor *shadowColor;
    @property (nonatomic, retain) UIColor *textColor;
    @property (nonatomic, retain) UIColor *backgroundColor;
    @property (nonatomic, retain) UIFont *font;
    #import "CustomLabel.h"
    #import "Constants.h"
    @implementation CustomLabel
    @synthesize textColor;
    @synthesize backgroundColor;
    @synthesize font;
    @synthesize shadowColor;
    @synthesize shadowOffset;
    - (id)initWithFrame:(CGRect)frame {
    if ((self = [super initWithFrame:frame])) {
    self.textColor = [UIColor whiteColor];
    self.backgroundColor = [UIColor clearColor];
    self.font = SMALL_CHALKDUSTER;
    self.shadowColor = [UIColor colorWithRed:0.0f green:0.0f blue:0.0f alpha:0.35f];
    self.shadowOffset = CGSizeMake (0, 2);
    self.textAlignment = UITextAlignmentCenter;
    return self;
    - (void)dealloc {
    [super dealloc];
    I then allocate a label like so...
    CustomLabel *myLabel;
    @property (nonatomic, retain) CustomLabel *myLabel;
    myLabel = [[CustomLabel alloc] init];
    myLabel.text = @"Blah blah blah";
    I feel like Im way off on this... I must be since it isnt setting any of the properties Im trying to use in the subclass.
    I found an older post on the forums here for setting the textAlignment but for some reason I couldnt apply the same logic to mine.
    So can anyone help me with this subclass please and thank you?

    xnav... thanks a ton for pointing me to this link. Its got me closer to my end goal than I was before. Right now I have...
    #import <UIKit/UIKit.h>
    @interface CustomLabel : UILabel {
    #import "CustomLabel.h"
    #import "Constants.h"
    @implementation CustomLabel
    - (void) drawRect:(CGRect)rect {
    CGContextRef ctx = UIGraphicsGetCurrentContext();
    UIColor *lineColor = [UIColor whiteColor];
    UIColor *shColor = [UIColor colorWithRed:0.0f green:0.0f blue:0.0f alpha:0.35f];
    //UIColor *bkgColor = [UIColor clearColor];
    CGContextSetFillColorWithColor(ctx, lineColor.CGColor);
    CGContextSetShadowWithColor(ctx, CGSizeMake(0, 2), self.font.pointSize / 2.0, shColor.CGColor);
    //CGRect drawRect = CGRectMake(rect.origin.x, rect.origin.y,rect.size.width, rect.size.height);
    //CGContextSetAlpha(ctx, 0) ;
    //CGContextFillRect(ctx, drawRect);
    //CGContextSetStrokeColorWithColor(ctx, [[UIColor clearColor] CGColor]);
    //CGContextSetFillColorWithColor(ctx, [[UIColor clearColor] CGColor]);
    CGContextSetBlendMode(ctx, kCGBlendModeClear);
    //CGContextAddEllipseInRect(ctx,CGRectMake(size.width-(size.width/2)-(size.width/10), (size.width/10), (size.width/2), (size.height/2)));
    //CGContextDrawPath(ctx, kCGPathFillStroke);
    //CGContextSetTextDrawingMode(ctx, kCGTextFillStroke);
    //self.backgroundColor = [UIColor clearColor];
    //[self setBackgroundColor:[UIColor clearColor]];
    [self.text drawInRect:self.bounds withFont:TINY_CHALKDUSTER lineBreakMode:self.lineBreakMode alignment:UITextAlignmentCenter];
    - (void)dealloc {
    [super dealloc];
    As you can see I have a couple of things commented out. LOL I still cant figure out how to make the background color clear. I also dont know if I need the dealloc in this subclass. But the other properties seem to be working like the font and line color.
    Thanks again for the link and getting me in the right direction xnav. If you can lend any more assistance on how to get that darn background color clear I would appreciate it!

  • Help with Wireless thingy Please!!!
