Illustrator CS6: Missing small pixels box that should follow the cursor when creating objects

Somehow I've managed to disable a feature in Illustrator CS6 that does two things: 1) it causes a small box to follow the cursor when I'm drawing an object 2) the light green lines or x's are gone now, too. How can I get them back? Are they only visible under certain circumstances?  Thanks!

    Nikon raw files would open up in Adobe Camera Raw and so should jpegs.
    If you select one in Bridge and give the command "Ctrl r" (Windows), what happens?
    Also what is the version of ACR in the title bar?

    I have a Macbook Pro and have just purchased a GSP hidden objects game. It says on the box that it is compatible and when I try and install it it tells me that installation has been successful. However, it then says that PowerPC games not supported. Help?
    No game icon appears on my desktop and I don't know what I can do.
    Really ****** off as i've not played these games since switching from a windows PC to a Mac and was really excited!! All I want is to be able to play my new game that arrived in the post today. If anyone can help I would be really really grateful....
    The game says that it needs Mac OS X 10.3 or higher to run so I don't understand what the problem is or how I can fix it!!

    beckyj3,
    the last version of Mac OS X which supported running PowerPC apps on Intel Macs was Mac OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard). If you’d like to play this PowerPC game on your Intel MacBook Pro, then you’ll need to install Snow Leopard on it and boot into Snow Leopard. (Note that the last MacBook Pro which natively supported Snow Leopard was the Early 2011 model.)
    The game was almost certainly published before Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) was released, so back then, all versions of “Mac OS X 10.3 or higher” would have supported running that PowerPC game.

  • When I open a pdf in Adobe Acrobat xi pro it is not displaying correctly. If a file is all black with orange writing, I will see only the orange writing. Its not until i print it or open crop pages dialog box that i see the background. i am on a Windows 7

    When I open a pdf in Adobe Acrobat xi pro it is not displaying correctly. If a file is all black with orange writing, I will see only the orange writing. Its not until i print it or open crop pages dialog box that i see the background.
    i am on a Windows 7 professional PC, 64-bit.

    If anyone is reading this still looking for what caused the issue and how to fix it here is what I discovered.
    The antivirus program our company uses, Bitdefender Antivirus Plus, was causing some of the PDF files not to open. After troubleshooting the different modules and settings the culprit was..
    Scan SSL in Privacy Control Settings. Turning it OFF solved the problem and all the PDF files that previously would not open now open just fine. This issue has been sent to Bitdefender for them to review. If you use a different antivirus program and are having this issue try locating the Scan SSL setting and see if turning it off solves the problem.

  • My imac wont boot  and a small square shows up next to the cursor

    Hi
    my imac wont boot and a small square shows up next to the cursor. I can open in safe mode. I have reinstalled the OSX, but can't boot from back-up.
    Any advice?

    OK.....I figured it out.....after reading endless threads on the cursor issue, I found out that apple calls the cursor a MOUSE POINTER..! and the square that follows it a 'corruption'...GO FIGURE!
    Anyway, this is what I did.
    I tried reinstalling Mountain Lion....online install. It didn't resolve the issue. Same problems
    Then, I tried reinstalling from the original DVD install disc....this wasn't possible (no access sign over install icon).
    So I finally erased my hard drive (after rebooting command - r), BUT NOT BEFORE BACKING UP MY FILES, APPLICATIONS, SETTINGS and any other important data!!!!!!!
    Then started up command R
    Then reinstalled Mountain Lion online
    My iMac started up like it does when you install 'out of the box'...follow the instructions....
    my cursor, or mouse pointer is now free of it's 'corruption', and boots up just fine!
    Hope this helps anyone out there with the same issue

  • I received a psd file created in CS6 for MAC, I am unable to find the layers when I open it in photoshop in Windows. What can i do to edit the files?

    I received a psd file created in CS6 for MAC, I am unable to find the layers when I open it in photoshop in Windows. What can i do to edit the files? What can be done so that I can either open and see the layers or how can the sender save it in a way that it doesn't "merge" the layers in some way to just one?

    Could try saving as tiff provided layers and transparency are chosen at the time of saving. But it's hard to give a definitive answer as it depends on the final usage. For example PSD's tend to work better in applications like In Design in comparison with tiff.

    I had to delete everything on my computer and install the operating system again , but I had to install Snow Leopard because it was the cd that came with the computer when I bought it. The problem is that I had already paid for the OS Lion and even had upgraded to the Mavericks . I do not think it's fair to have to pay again and I would like to upgrade my operating system without having to pay again for the same system.

    Hi anatuta, 
    Thanks for visiting Apple Support Communities. 
    It sounds like you are trying to upgrade your Mac to a newer version of OS X, after completing a fresh install of Snow Leopard. 
    If you have already purchased and downloaded OS X Lion and Mavericks, you should be able to find these items in the Purchased section of the Mac App Store. 
    You may find the steps in this article helpful with finding the items:
    Mac App Store: Finding your purchased apps - Apple Support
    If you do not see the items in the Purchased section, they may be hidden:

    All the best,

  • Want my JFrame to be the *only* one that can end the program when closed

    Hi all,
    I have an application that is essentially a launcher for other applications -- it's a holder to allow us to demo our work and other Java examples (not necessarily our work). The launcher will either run methods to launch an application or will find a class's main method and invoke that.
    In all cases, the other applications open up their own JFrames, separate from my launcher (this is a good thing). The problem is that, in general, the other JFrames are set to EXIT_ON_CLOSE. This means that if the user closes the second window, everything will close.
    Is there anyway to prevent this from happening? I'd like either a way to say that my JFrame is the only one that can exit the program when closed, or to say globally that JFrames can't exit on close, and then re-work my initial frame so that it is still able to exit.
    Note that changing all the other applications so that they do not include the EXIT_ON_CLOSE line is not an option (several of the applications we have the right to use, but not the right to modify, for instance).
    Any thoughts?
    Thanks,
    Sam

    I have a similar launcher application and this is how I tackled the issue....
    Window[] windows = Window.getWindows();
    This seems like a great work-around. The only problem is that Window.getWindows() is only 6.0, and unfortunately I can only assume 5.0. I can't see another method in the Window class that will return unowned windows -- is there another method that you know of?
    Edit: I found I can use Frame.getFrames() instead, but unfortunately I've discovered this doesn't solve my problem. One of the applications is listening to window closing and is calling System.exit(0) itself, and is not using EXIT_ON_CLOSE as I previously thought. So I think that launching a new JVM may be the only option.... Any advice on how to do this? I'm a little stuck with the ProcessBuilder stuff above.

    edit In future (not this time), Swing related questions should be posted in the [Swing forum|http://forums.sun.com/forum.jspa?forumID=57]
    I guess I was thinking this as a process-oriented question (I had already been thinking of the "different JVM" tactic), but the other option was to think of it as a pure-swing problem, like your solution above. Guess I should have just cross-posted -- everyone loves that! ;-)

  • Billing date should be the date it create

    Hi
    Currecntly we are creating billing document based on the dilivery in that case billing document date dake as the delivery date all accounting enteries post based on the dilivery date.
    But we need to change this when billing is created it should take the date it creates with out taking the delivery date.
    please advice how to do this chage..
    Thanx in advance !!
    Regards
    Kesharika

    Hi Kesharika,
    If invoice dates are defined for the customer, the system proposes the
    billing date from the invoice date calendar. If no invoice dates are
    agreed, then the actual goods issue date is formed on the basis of
    delivery related billing. In order related billing, the billing date of
    the order forms the basis of the billing date.
    If you want different system behavior, you may consider writing your
    own copy control routine and assign it under 'Data VBRK/VBRP' in trx
    VTFA. Or you have to manually key in the system date as the billing
    date in VF01.
    In case you want to cancel a billing document and you want to change the
    billing date (VBRK-FKDAT) of the cancellation into today' date as the
    default on the cancellation, you have this possibility:
    In the level of invoice type (Transaction VOFA), every invoice type has
    its own cancellation type.
    ==> VOFA 'Billing: Document Types' for example: billing type F2 invoice
        Cancell.billing type 'S1'     Invoice Cancellation
        Copying requirements '  ' <     Here
    You've got the possibility to deposit an additional copying requirement.
    against your cancellation type. In here you can set the billing date on
    the document to whatever date you require. Eg: VBRK-FKDAT = SY-DATUM.
    would set it to the date the document is being cancelled (see note
    43318).
    Cheers,
    Alex

  • User statuses on notifications should carryover to order when created from

    Hi,
    I have requriement for user statuses on notifications (IW21/22) should carryover to order when created from notification automatically.
    Did anybody worked on this type of scenerios. I already found some userexit (QQMA0014) but i could not able to find any thing related to user status in VIQMEL view.
    At the time of creation of notification IW21, when i go for creation of order, User status of notification should copied to order automatically.
    Appreciate any help.
    Regards
    MM

    Thanks Anji for your response.Yes there is FM status_read which i can use to get Status but my problem is during creation of order from notification, i don't have notification number so i can't use any database tables to get status for later use. As per requirment, during creation of notification, I can go to order creation. at that time whatever user-status I choose at notifcation, same status should get copied to order. I hope it got clear to you now.
    Please suggest.
    Regards

  • How can I change fullscreen background color, so that it is the same when viewing on mac and iPad? I want this to be able to use MathType in widget text.

    How can I change fullscreen background color, so that it is the same when viewing on mac and iPad? I want this to be able to use MathType in widget text.
    As an example, html widget has white background on iPad, and black on mac. The same goes for interactive widget.
    The MathType text inserted is inserted as a image, and will have the same color when in fullscreen as when not. So I need the textcolor to be the same in both views. Anyone know how to fix this?

    We're still not communicating. This is why I wanted an example .iba.
    Here's a re-creation of my own, going off what you described. You said "all html widgets and all gallery widgets" have this problem. So I inserted a blank HTML widget and a blank Gallery widget, and typed into both. Inserted a MathType equation into both. I don't see any difference when I preview it on my Mac compared to the preview on the iPad. I want to help, but I can't help if I can't duplicate the issue.
    I've attached the screen shots and the .iba file [link to .iba file].
    Feel free to email me directly at bobm at dessci dot com. If you're uncomfortable giving some information here, tell me anything you want in email. I work for the "MathType company", Design Science.
