How do I split Imovie events?  I find the option in File menu and have selected the part of the event that I want to split before, but the option to split is not bolded (allowed) in the File menu.

I have imported video to iMovie and want to split the event.  I have selected part of the event and when I go to File> Split the event before the selected clip it is not bolded in the menu and it is not an allowed selection.  I had imported directly to an external HD so moved the event to the Mac HD and tried it again. This did not work either.  Any ideas why this option is not available to me???

Use iMovie to move the events to your Movies folder, otherwise you're can't.

  • I have Acrobat XI on a PC and have received a Fatal Error message indicating that "Acrobat failed to connect to a DDE Server."  Acrobat will not open now.  How do I regain access to the program?

    I have Acrobat XI on PC.  After trying to convert a webpage to PDF, I received a Fatal Error message indicating that "Acrobat failed to connect to a DDE Server."  Now, the program will not open.  How do I regain access to the program?

    I have Acrobat XI Pro and have been experiencing all sorts of "freeze ups" with it ever since Adobe released the new Acrobat DC the other week.  I see that an automatic update was pushed down to my Acrobat XI Pro at the same time.  Is this the first issue you have encountered with your Acrobat XI, or have you been having other issues suddenly as well??  Just wondering ...

  • My ipod touch stopped playing music in the middle of a song and now stops playing music. It says that it's playing a song but i don't hear anything. I've tried turning it off and on and restoring it's settings.

    So like the title (which i thought was suppose to be a question to tech support) suggests, my ipod touch has stopped playing any audio sound. I've turned it off and on and restored it to it's default settings and still nothing. If it helps, it stopped playing music a few minutes after i accidently had some water on it.

    - First place the iPod in a sealed container/bag of rice for a couple of days. Change the rice daily. Do not turn on or charge before it is dry.
    - The try the standard fixes, reset and restore, including restoring to factory defaults/new iPod.
    - Try both headphones and speaker.
    - If no usccessful then the water caused permenent damage to the iPod and service is required.

  • Hi. I opened iPhoto and, suddenly, it tells me " WHAT IPHOTO LIBRARY DO I WANT TO USE?" but i had a iPhoto library. When i search on my Pictures, i have the file IPHOTO LIBRARY but it appears on a dim letters and i can not open it.

    Hi. I need some help on the following problem. I opened iPhoto and, suddenly, it tells me " WHAT IPHOTO LIBRARY DO I WANT TO USE?" but i had a iPhoto library. When i search on my Pictures, i have the file IPHOTO LIBRARY but is was not the icon on it i previously remembered and it appears on a dim letters and it can not be opened ... How can i recover it??

    Option 1
    Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild. Choose to Rebuild iPhoto Library Database from automatic backup.
    If that fails:
    Option 2
    Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. This will create a new library based on data in the albumdata.xml file. Not everything will be brought over - no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your albums and keywords back.
    Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one. .
    Regards

  • I have a WD 2 tb hard drive that I want to use to back up my Mac Pro quad core.  How do I create a back up startup disk?  Also, when I used Time macine, it only backed up users and not the system or library folders.  Ideas?

    Welcome to Apple Support Communities
    Time Machine should be enough to make a backup of your files. Also, it should back up all folders, so open System Preferences > Time Machine > Options, and make sure that there are no folders included in the excluded items list.
    If you want to create a bootable clone of your hard drive, you need to use an app like Carbon Copy Cloner or the Disk Utility's Restore feature > http://pondini.org/OSX/DU7.html

  • HT204370 I purchased a movie yesterday and started the download.  The download seemed to hang up at about 90%.  Finally, it showed that it was ready to watch, but the movie will not play.  Download is apparently corrupt.  How do I get a working version?

    Depending upon what country that you are in (films can't be re-downloaded in all countries) then try deleting the film from your iPad and redownload it via the Purchased tab in the iTunes store app (or the Purchased link under Quick Links on the right-hand side of the iTunes store home page on your computer's iTunes).
    If you aren't in a country where you can re-download films, or if you have problems with the re-downloaded version, then try the 'report a problem' link from your purchase history : log into your account on your computer's iTunes via the Store > View Account menu option and you should then see a Purchase History section with a 'see all' link to the right of it ; click on that and you should see a list of your purchases ; find that film and use the 'Report a Problem' link and fill in details about the problem (iTunes support should reply within, I think, about 24 hours).
    If the 'report a problem' link doesn't work (it's been taking some people to this site on a browser instead of showing a form in iTunes) then you can try contacting iTunes support via this page : http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/- click on Contact iTunes Store Support on the right-hand side of the page.

  • TS3391 iMovie 11 is not working. I try to open it and it says it is generating thumbnails for one of my previous projects. All the commands are gray. I have to force it to quit. I just want to capture clips to start a new project.

    iMovie 11 is not working. I try to open it and it says it is generating thumbnails for one of my previous projects. All the commands are gray. I have to force it to quit. I just want to capture clips to start a new project. I googled the problem and there were discussions about deleting files in various folders and renaming clip extensions. I don't like the solutions I saw there and I am not sure they will work.

    Nobody replied so I called Apple. They seemed to think they could fix the problem but I had to agree to pay about $20 first. I told them to put it down as a complaint. I only want to use the software I bought. I can't see that it is my fault it is malfunctioning. I guess I will have to pay. It doesn't seem right.

    If it's a text box it means the text has overflowed the boundries of the box.  Check for line returns which won't be visible but will trigger the warning.

    I have created an iMovie but cannot share it. I have looked at the help menu and have tried to follow these instructions but cannot get the sharing button to open anything.

    Do you have MacKeeper installed? If so, you need to uninstall it. There is a known issue where MacKeeper disables all the sharing functions from the new iMovie.
    Uninstall MacKeeper, then re-install iMovie.
    Keep MacKeeper uninstalled.

  • I have a 10.5.8 MacBook Pro that I want to upgrade to Snow Leopard.  Where do I find the upgrade code

    I have a MacBook Pro from September 2007 that I want to upgrade to the latest OS.  I have 10.5.8 on it now, but can't seem to find the code or files any where to upgrade it to 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) so I can then step it up to Mountain Lion.  Anyone have a link to where I can find this code.

    Upgrading to Mountain Lion
    You can upgrade to Mountain Lion from Lion or directly from Snow Leopard. Mountain Lion can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for $19.99. To access the App Store you must have Snow Leopard 10.6.6 or later installed.
    If you need to purchase Snow Leopard contact Customer Service: Contacting Apple for support and service. The price is $29.00 plus tax. You will receive physical media - DVD - by mail.
    Third-party sources for Snow Leopard are:
    Snow Leopard from Amazon.com
    Snow Leopard from eBay
    After you install Snow Leopard you will have to download and install the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 to update Snow Leopard to 10.6.8 and give you access to the App Store.
    If you need to purchase Lion contact Customer Service: Contacting Apple for support and service. The cost is $19.99 (as it was before) plus tax.  It's a download.
    Be sure your computer meets the minimum requirements:
    Apple - OS X Mountain Lion - Read the technical specifications.
    Macs that can be upgraded to OS X Mountain Lion
    iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
    MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
    MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
    MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
    Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
    Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
    Xserve (Early 2009)
    Are my applications compatible?
    See App Compatibility Table - RoaringApps - App compatibility and feature support for OS X & iOS.
    Am I eligible for the free upgrade?
    See Apple - Free OS X Mountain Lion upgrade Program.
    For a complete How-To introduction from Apple see Apple - Upgrade your Mac to OS X Mountain Lion.
