Why can't I alter the Gain control in the voiceover tool?

Whether I use my USB mic or normal mic plugged into Line In, I cannot increase the value of the Gain control slider.
Any ideas?

The problem is solved!
After reading how someone else lost this functionality after upgrading to ML, I booted into Snow Leopard (10.6.8) which I have installed on a Firewire hard drive, launched FCP X 10.0.7 and surprise, surprise  .  .  .  .
.  .  .  .  the Input Device Gain slider was working perfectly.
If anyone else using Mountain Lion 10.8.2 could check this out and let me know their results, I would be most obliged.
P.S. Some eagle-eyed reader may notice that my original screenshot showed the Record Audio tool set to "Built-in Input" and this screenshot shows the "Built-in Microphone" selected.
You can forget about that as I tested every setting several times in both ML and SL and the results were the same. It is just unfortunate that the screenshots show different settings.

  • Why can't I use the mesh tool? - brand new illustrator user

    I am trying to learn to use illustrator - I've been watching the online videos - which are very helpful, but there aren't any that I can find for the mesh tool.  I want to add some shading to the body of this acrobat but every time I try to use the mesh tool I get the not available symbol.  I can't figure out why or how to change it.  I started from a scanned drawing, did a live trace, and converted to live paint to fill in colors.  What should I do now to enable the mesh tool?  Please help!

    You need to select the shape and then click inside of it with the
    tool. I'm not positive but I think it needs to be a solid for it to
    work as well.
    Some tutorials that I thought were rather helpful on explaining it
    were on youtube:

    The person in those videos covers creating the mesh and coloring it,
    patching, very nice. Hope those can help you out.

  • Why can't I use the paintbrush tool?

    I'm trying to paint on an image and when I mouse over where I want to paint I get the "prohibited" symbol and can't paint. I opened other .jpgs and was able to paint with no problem. Is there a type of file that you can't use the paintbrush tool on? Please help!

    I found this to be a way around this issue:
    Open the image that you want to draw on, keep that in its own RGB window.
    Open a brand new document, CMYK.
    Activate your Brush and draw a few lines on your artboard.
    Then, copy and paste your RGB image into this new CMYK color space.
    Voila. I think the Brush can only be used in a CMYK color space. And sometimes this does not work when you convert your document to a color space inside the RGB document.
    Hope this helps. If anyone else has an alternative, let me know.
    I've always had this issue with the Brush.

  • Why can't I get the nested tools to show ?

    I am in Photoshop CS6,  after choosing the box for say a marque rectangle, I hover the mouse over the little arrow in the bottom right corner and the nested tools do not show?  
    I can only see these tools if I hold down the option key and click it.
    Thank you,
    Student 2222

    You should be able to press and hold down the right mouse button or track pad button on the desired tool button to get the fly out tool bar.
    You do not have to target the little arrow, it's only there to indicate there are other tools under the button.

  • Why can't I see the airplay icon in the music app or control centre on my Iphone 4 running ios7? I can see it in the movie app

    Why can't I see the airplay icon in the music app or control centre on my Iphone 4 running ios7? I can see it in the movie app

    I've seen something yesterday that says Airplay in control centre is only for Iphone 4S and onwards. It's frustrating when they take something away without any obvious reason. I'm going to change back to IOS6 until it's sorted out.
    I also tried connecting to bluetooth and only once I'm connected does an icon show up in control centre. There's no direct way to connect to a device from control centre on the Iphone 4 from the looks of it.

  • Why can I not disable the guest user in the 10.8.2 update? I have never enabled the guest user, but after the update, it was automatically enabled with a "managed" tag. It is not selectable even after entering my admin password to unlock the options.

    Why can I not disable the guest user in the 10.8.2 update? I have never enabled the guest user, but after the update, it was automatically enabled with a "managed" tag. It is not selectable even after entering my admin password to unlock the options. I was able to select the account under "parental controls", but again, could not delete it. Why Apple? Why?!!????

    SOLVED Ok. I actually was able to disable it. I had to actually log in as the guest user to make it accessible in the preference window. Then I disabled it and logged out. Apologies if this was obvious for some people, but I have had some sort of issue with something every update since Snow Leopard.

  • Why can I not check the 'shuffle images' box in a slide show settings in iPhoto 9.6?

    Why can I not check the 'Shuffle images' box in settings of a slide show in iPhoto 9.6? All other settings I can check but this one.

    Hey Brad,
    If you are unable to select the shuffle images checkbox, follow the steps in this article -
    iPhoto '11: Change slideshow settings
    Specifically -
    To display slides in random order, select “Shuffle slide order.” If you don’t see this option, play the slideshow, move the pointer to make the slideshow controls appear, and then click the Settings button.
    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.
    Be well,
    Brett L
