I have the same problem with lectures slides.
Furthermore, sometimes the text box, when doube-clicking, turns  the text into a one-liner. Causing the text box to sometimes get 3. times wider than the pdf itself.

By pressing [cmd + I] the Inspector opens up and clicking on the rightmost tab 'Annotations' you should be able find those Annotations again. I do this regularly to find the empty annotations I accidentally create while clicking through slides.

    iMovie works best with uncompressed audio. If your track is MP3 or AAC, you may get better results by converting your track to the AIFF format and then using that in iMovie.
    You can do this in iTunes. Go to iTunes/Preferences and click the General button. On the General page, click the Import Settings button. Choose IMPORT USING: AIFF ENCODER.
    (note: remember what you changed it from so you can change it back later, before you import another CD)
    Now, in iTunes, select your track. Then click FILE/CREATE NEW VERSION/AIFF VERSION.

  • Many of my recently uploaded photos are horizontal when they should be vertical, and vice versa.  I've corrected all these on my laptop but in my iPad and i Phone photo streams they are still mixed.  How can I fix this?  Thanks.

    Add the corrected ones to your PS - PS contains only what was added to it - changes made are not applied to the PS - you have to re add the updated photos

  • TS1468 I bought songs from the same album at two different times on an iPod touch. After syncing to iTunes and following this article, they are still seperate. How can I fix this?

    One album has 4 songs and the other has 3. The album artist, album name and "show" are all the same and they both have "part of a compilation" checked, but they are still two seperate compilations.

    apparently no oone knows..  well I went to a genius bar and they figured it out.   Solution for this: Make an appointment at your local Apple store with the Genius Bar.     Thanks for nothing people here 

  • TS1702 I have three apps that I tried to update and now they are stuck in waiting how do I fix this

    I have three apps that I tried to update and now they are frozen any ideas on how I can fix this

    You can try any or all of these suggestions that have worked for others in the past .... But ... YMMV.
    Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons.
    Make sure that you do not have a stalled download in iTunes - a song or podcast .... if you have a download in there that did not finish, complete that one first. Only one thing can download at a time on the iPad so that could be what is causing the problem.
    If that doesn't work - sign out of your account, restart the iPad and then sign in again.
    Settings>iTunes & App Store>Apple ID. Tap your ID and sign out. Restart the iPad by holding down on the sleep button until the red slider appears and then slide to shut off. To power up hold the sleep button until the Apple logo appears and let go of the button.
    Go back to Settings>iTunes & App Store>Sign in and then try to update again. Tap one waiting icon only if necessary to start the download stream.
    You can also try deleting the waiting icons - tap and hold down on an icon until it wiggles - the tap the X on the icon to delete it. Then try to download again.
    You can try resetting all settings. Settings>General>Reset>Reset All Settings. You will have to enter all of your app preferences and device settings again.
    If all else fails, download the updates or the apps in iTunes on your computer and then sync the content to your iPad.

  • TS1702 I have purchased some episodes of a tv series but they are failing to download - how do I fix this?

    I have just got an iPad and attempted to purchase some tv episodes and they download until the end when I get a message saying "unable to download episode" can anyone help please?

    Dear Mr. Churchill,
    Anastasia here. Same problem. Restarting the device does not help. The new episodes show in my Apple MacBook Pro (OS 10.8.5) Itunes (11.1.3(8)), but not in the Apple TV device. Both have the same Apple ID, I have restarted, log on /off both devices several times and the problem remains: last week's episode of 3 different series will not download.
    This has happened to me on several occassions, each time something else solves de problem. I have been having the probem since the last Apple TV software update. It is usually after software updates that this type of problem appears.
    I can also see the new available episodes in my Iphone 5.iOS6 (I have not installed yet the iOS 7.0.4)
    What is going on? How do I solve it now? I have tried everything that worked in the other instances, but nothing is working now. Please answer to [email protected] Big thanks.
    Another question: What is the different between "Restart" and "Resert" of the Apple TV device? What will I loose if I reset, instead of restart, which I have done till now. Will it solve the problem?
    Big thanks,
    Anastasia

    Could be a defective SIM.  Try a new one from your carrier.

    When you look at your iPhone, are you looking in the Music app or in the iTunes app?  Be sure you are looking in the Music app, and look in the Songs category.  If your songs are not here, you may want to try syncing your information again through iTunes.  To do this, uncheck "Sync Music" and then click apply or sync in the bottom right corner of iTunes, and then recheck "Sync Music" and then click apply or sync again. 
    I hope this helps!

  • On my iPad 2 I can nolonger view maps.  It says there are JavaScript errors.  How can I fix this problem?

    On my iPad 2 I can nolonger view maps.  It says there are JavaScript errors.  How can I fix this problem?

    First, try a system reset.  It cures many ills and it's quick, easy and harmless...
    Hold down the on/off switch and the Home button simultaneously until the screen blacks out or you see the Apple logo.  Ignore the "Slide to power off" text if it appears.  You will not lose any apps, data, music, movies, settings, etc.
    If the Reset doesn't work, try a Restore.  Note that it's nowhere near as quick as a Reset.  Connect via cable to the computer that you use for sync.  From iTunes, select the iPad/iPod and then select the Summary tab.  Follow directions for Restore and be sure to say "yes" to the backup.  You will be warned that all data (apps, music, movies, etc.) will be erased but, as the Restore finishes, you will be asked if you wish the contents of the backup to be copied to the iPad/iPod.  Again, say "yes."

  • My app store will not open. when i try to open it i get an error that reads "You can't open the application App Store because it may be damaged or incomplete". How can I fix this?

    my app store will not open. when i try to open it i get an error that reads "You can't open the application App Store because it may be damaged or incomplete". How can I fix this?

    I am having the exact same problem.  MacForums has been helping me, and I called Apple.  After trying everyone's suggestions, and Apple's, no success.
    My App Store app still says "incomplete or damaged."  There is even a circle with a line through it on the icon.  Apple said reinstall my Snow Leopard upgrade disc (not my original Leopard disc) and then run the Combo Update (like your suggestion).  Did not work.  I also updated the software from "Software Update".  Rebooted.
    I think this started after I replaced my hard drive with a SSD and moved the hard drive to where the DVD was.  I wonder if the person above who had the same problem also installed a SSD?
    Anyway, anymore ideas?  Even Apple is stumped.
    (In answer to the other post above, my Quicktime works fine.)

    Just did some more reading.  I was going by the icon in the dock.  When I checked in Finder, there it was, fixed and brand new!!  Thanks, anyway.
