How do I rename or delete a file I've created in numbers?

I created a file in numbers and now want to either delete it or (at least) rename it. I can find no way to take either of these actions. Suggestions?

OSX.  Find the file in Finder and select > change or delete it there..
iOS.  Hold down the table icon on the main numbers page and it will wriggle > tap to put a border around it  > the delete bin is along the top. Tap and hold the title on the table icon to rename.

    Did you open Automator and just look around?
    Actions are listed in the left pane.
    You drag them into the workflow on the right in the order you need to process the items that you want.
    If this is a on-off requirement, just make a Workflow. If you plan to use it often, make it an Application.
    If you want to select the contacts you want to export, use a get Selected action. You'd then select the contacts in Contacts App before running the workflow.
    I'm not on a Mac to take screenshots, so you'll have to look at Automator's help or google for more info.

  • How can I remove a deleted content file from my book's Table of Contents? I

    I deleted the file, saved the book, updated the book, updated the TOC references, and confirmed that the file has been deleted -- but it's still there in the TOC. How can I get it out of there? And at what point in the proceedings should it be gone from the TOC?

    > I deleted the file ....
    How? You need to delete-from-book using the Book menu. A right-click option on the component file name.
    > ... updated the book, ...
    A necessary step, but might not work if the remove isn't done correctly.
    > .... updated the TOC references ...
    What does that mean?
    I would expect a delete-from-book, followed by an update-book, would suffice.

  • My hard driver is apparently full - but it is full of "other" files.  I have cleared downloads and removed my music and pictures, but it still thinks it is full - how do I access and delete the files?

    I am having real trouble with the mac book air and i dont know what to do.  It thinks it is full, i get warning messages every day, but when i check how the storage is being used it is 45.79 GB of "other" and I can't work out where to locate and delete these files.  I have removed all my music and pictures, there are nearly no documents on the bloody thing, i have cleared the downloads, I have run a cc cleaner programme but nothing seems to touch this "other" amount.  Its so annoying as it is getting to a point where i can't use the computer properly anymore.  Do you have any clue what it could be or how i can deal with it?
    It did this last year but not as bad, i never solved it then i just removed all my own files but now "other" is taking that space too.  On a windows computer you would be able to click through and view what was taking up the space but you can't seem to do that on a mac. could it be a virus that makes the hard driver think it is full?
    Any ideas what I can do?

    For information about the Other category in the Storage display, see this support article.
    Empty the Trash if you haven't already done so. If you use iPhoto, empty its internal Trash first:
    iPhoto ▹ Empty Trash
    Do the same in other applications, such as Aperture, that have an internal Trash feature. Then reboot. That will temporarily free up some space.
    According to Apple documentation, you need at least 9 GB of available space on the startup volume (as shown in the Finder Info window) for normal operation. You also need enough space left over to allow for growth of the data. There is little or no performance advantage to having more available space than the minimum Apple recommends. Available storage space that you'll never use is wasted space.
    When Time Machine backs up a portable Mac, some of the free space will be used to make local snapshots, which are backup copies of recently deleted files. The space occupied by local snapshots is reported as available by the Finder, and should be considered as such. In the Storage display of System Information, local snapshots are shown asBackups. The snapshots are automatically deleted when they expire or when free space falls below a certain level. You ordinarily don't need to, and should not, delete local snapshots yourself. If you followed bad advice to disable local snapshots by running a shell command, you may have ended up with a lot of data in the Other category. Reboot and it should go away.
    See this support article for some simple ways to free up storage space.
    You can more effectively use a tool such as OmniDiskSweeper (ODS) to explore the volume and find out what's taking up the space. You can also delete files with it, but don't do that unless you're sure that you know what you're deleting and that all data is safely backed up. That means you have multiple backups, not just one.
    Deleting files inside an iPhoto or Aperture library will corrupt the library. Any changes to a photo library must be made from within the application that created it. The same goes for Mail files.
    Proceed further only if the problem isn't solved by the above steps.
    ODS can't see the whole filesystem when you run it just by double-clicking; it only sees files that you have permission to read. To see everything, you have to run it as root.
    Back up all data now.
    If you have more than one user account, make sure you're logged in as an administrator. The administrator account is the one that was created automatically when you first set up the computer.
    Install ODS in the Applications folder as usual. Quit it if it's running.
    Triple-click anywhere in the line of text below on this page to select it, then copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C:
    sudo /Applications/
    Launch the built-in Terminal application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the icon grid.
    Paste into the Terminal window (command-V). You'll be prompted for your login password, which won't be displayed when you type it. You may get a one-time warning to be careful. If you see a message that your username "is not in the sudoers file," then you're not logged in as an administrator.
    The application window will open, eventually showing all files in all folders, sorted by size with the largest at the top. It may take a few minutes for ODS to finish scanning.
    I don't recommend that you make a habit of doing this. Don't delete anything while running ODS as root. If something needs to be deleted, make sure you know what it is and how it got there, and then delete it by other, safer, means. When in doubt, leave it alone or ask for guidance.
    When you're done with ODS, quit it and also quit Terminal.

  • Finder crashes when renaming or deleting a file

    on my MacMini I have Snow Leopard (10.6.2) installed and have a lot of troubles with finder.
    Every time i tried to rename a file it crashed. So i did some research and found out that StuffIt used to be a problem but i didn't have it installed. So i search further more and found out that deleting finder preferences may be a solution. I did that an restarted and than renaming files was possible.
    As it deleted my preferences I then switched back to the multiple column view and tried deleting a file. Crash. Switched back to the icon view... it worked...
    So i guess the multiple column view has a bug in it...
    The reason I switched to a Mac was NOT to have problems like that....
    Here is a Crash-log for the finder when renaming a file:
    Maybe it helps you fixing this problem.
    Thanks, Georg

    I can assure you that multiple column view works fine, even when deleting a file. The problem I'm afraid is with you. Have you tried repairing permissions?

  • Accidentally deleted domain files trying to create a second site...

    This is my first post so please be merciful
    I used the freeware iWebsites (that some of you know) and I was attempting to create another website with a different domain name for our church. I accidentally deleted the domain files BUT not before I published a backup to my desktop.
    Now when you type the address:
    You get the template for the church site:
    But this is the one I want to keep for my business:
    So how do:
    1. I get the first address to go back to my third address.
    2. Create a new address for my church
    3. I guess also to delete that second address?
    Thank you very much for taking the time to help.

    So how do:
    1. I get the first address to go back to my third address.
    Modify the index.html file on the .Mac server. First, navigate to your iDisk files using the Go menu in Finder, and drag the index.html file to your desktop so that it is copied there.
    Make a folder and place this copy inside for safekeeping. If anything goes wrong you can put it back on the iDisk.
    Launch your Text, and under preferences, in Text Edit, check the box for Ignore rich text commands in HTML files.
    Now choose File/Open/iDisk/Web/Sites/index.html. You should see this (or something very close to it) in a Text Edit window:
    You will change it to this:
    Note that not very much changed here...just the name of the site in the url. Your old site is simply named, Site, in your iWeb application. You are just changing the index.html file to point to that site versus the New Site. So really, all you will do here is delete the word New in the index.html file. Now, File/Save. Not Save As...; just File/Save. Now your short .Mac url ( should point to the correct site.
    2. Create a new address for my church
    You will need to buy a Domain name and forward it to your address; you could also use the .Mac hosting via a cname alias if you want. Purchase your Domain name from a registrar like Yahoo or GoDaddy.
    3. I guess also to delete that second address?
    You can delete these files from your iDisk by simply dragging them to the trash.

  • How can I locate and delete torrent files from my mac

    I recently deleted a bunch of old files from macbook air from a p2p website I use ( when I checked back on my hdd it was still full, and loaded with 'other files' which I'm pretty sure are torrents. I'm wondering how I can find these files (because I can't seem to locate them with spotlight) and trash them? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    For starters... you may already know this, but be sure to empty your trash.  You can use something like OmniDiskSweeper (free) to show where most of your space is being taken up.  It will list your folders/files in order of size.  This will generally make any folder which is excessively large show up right away:

  • How do I retrieve my deleted Pages files or get them from iCloud on iPad2

    This is actually two questions but they are kinda related.
    I have an iPad 2 with iOS 7.1.1
    Pages deleted all my documents when I opened it and it told me there was an update. I clicked the update button, but when I saw the update was 250 MB I thought I would wait to update. I returned to Pages and all my documents were gone.
    How do I get them back?
    If I go to the settings I can see several of my Pages documents (maybe all of them) are stored in my iCloud. That's great, but how do I get them back on my iPad 2 in my Pages App?
    All the Best
    Jost - Denmark

    If you started the update, you may have rendered the app useless until you finish the update. That's simply a guess o n my part, though. Are you able launch the app? If so, can you create a new document?
    Something else to consider ....I  have deleted the Pages app from my iPad several times in the past for troubleshooting purposes. When I deleted the app, the documents were also deleted from the device, but they still remained in iCloud as they should. When I reinstalled the app, all of my Page documents downloaded from iCloud onto my iPad again, which is the normal and expected behavior. If your files are still in iCloud, that might be worth a try.
