  • Good Morning! As a feedback, I still prefer the physical purchase instead of downloads. It suppose to be easier and faster and always end up being slower, annoying and frustrating. I just want to download the software Mountain Lion that I have purchased

    Good Morning! As a feedback, I still prefer the physical purchase instead of downloads. It suppose to be easier and faster and always end up being slower, annoying and frustrating. I just want to download the software Mountain Lion that I have purchased. Redeem is a pain. How do I redeem my purchase without ERROR or COULD NOT RECOGNISE , the code that you have sent to me!!!

    It appears PowerMacs (your profile) aren't supported.
    Check that your computer is compatible with Mountain Lion/Mavericks.
    To check the model number hold down the option/alt key, go to the Apple menu and select System Information.
    iMac (Mid 2007 or newer) model number 7,1 or higher
    MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer) model number 5,1 or higher
    MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer) model number 3,1 or higher
    MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer) model number 2,1 or higher
    Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer) model number 3,1 or higher
    Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer) model number 3,1 or higher
    Xserve (Early 2009) model number 3,1 or higher
    Your Mac needs:
    OS X v10.6.8 or OS X Lion already installed
    2 GB or more of memory (More is better - 4 GB minimum seems to be the consensus)
    8 GB or more of available space

  • How do i turn off messages with the new mountain lion os?

    My husband and I share an Apple ID. When I use the iMessages on my MacBook it send them to both of our iPhones. How can I turn this off on my computer?

    While we all have MacBooks in this forum most of us don’t run Mountain Lion. There's a Mountain Lion Support Community where everybody has Mountain Lion. You should also post this question there to increase your chances of getting an answer. https://discussions.apple.com/community/mac_os/os_x_mountain_lion

    Thank you, this resolved my question as well.

  • How does one publish their calendar from the new mountain lion cloud through iWeb? seems like this functionality has been dropped.

    how do you publish calendar under new mountain lion cloud. seems as though this functionality has been lost.

    There was never a functionality to publish a calendar thru iWeb.
    You could publish a calendar, 100% independent of iWeb, and display it in a browser window.
    Then you could display that window in an iWeb HTML Snippet.
    how do you publish calendar under new mountain lion cloud.
    I recommend asking in either the iCloud or the Mountain Lion forum.

    have os x 10.5.8 how do i get from there to new mountain lion

    Check your system capabilities.
    SL just needs an Intel processor and 1 GB RAM.
    Lion only needs Core2Duo processor ans 2 GB RAM.
    These are ML requirements: http://www.apple.com/osx/specs/

    Sounds that you installed a Persona.
    You can uninstall your current Persona and revert to the Default theme (Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

  • When replacing hard drive and upgrading to Mountain Lion, which should I do first?

    Hey guys,
    So I'm upgrading the HD in my 2011 MBP 8,2 from a 500GB HD to a 1TB hybrid drive. I also have a copy of Mountain Lion that I downloaded from the app store. I'm planning on doing a clean reinstall after I put it my new drive, but I'm not sure if I should:
    Replace the HD, install Lion on it, then upgrade to Mountain Lion, or
    Upgrade to Mountain Lion right now, Replace the HD, then reinstall Mountain Lion.
    Is there really any difference in what order you do it in?

    Thanks man, just finished everything, works like a charm! I decided to replace the HD before upgrading the OS. This silly new dock design is pretty strange to get used to though...

    I would be glad for the opportunity to customize a Premiere Elements 12 answer to your Premiere Elements 12 issue.
    But, I want to make sure that we are together on the details. This is my understanding of what you have written. Please review and let me
    know if I am misinterpreting anything that you have written.
    You have a video created in Windows Movie Maker.
    How did you output the video from Windows Movie Maker...wmv or mp4, what was the frame size and frame rate of that export?
    Next you import that video into Premiere Elements 12 (can we assume that this is on Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit?)
    From what you wrote, you have applied a pan and zoom effect to your video in Premiere Elements.
    Now you go to export the Premiere Elements 12 Timeline content with your video with the pan and zoom applied.
    But, the pan and zoom effect is not seen in playback of the export.
    Is all of the above correct so far?
    If so....we are going to need some more details from you...
    a. What is the project preset that you or the project are setting to match the properties of the video coming from Movie maker? See Edit Menu/Project Settings/General and the readings for Editing Mode, Timebase, Frame Rate, and Pixel Aspect Ratio even if the fields look grayed out.
    b. Are you applying the pan and zoom effect with the Pan and Zoom Tool, fx Effects Presets, or keyframing the Scale (for Zoom) and
    Position (for Pan) in the Motion Panel expanded?
    c. What are you selecting as your export in Publish+Share/. Please give details...are you using default settings or customizing the export
    setting under the Advanced Button/Video Tab and Audio Tab of the preset selected?
    I am suspecting some sort of mismatch of your project settings or some problems with working with the Pan and Zoom tool. I need
    your answers to help me help you. If I have written anything that you do not understand, please let me know. I will re-write if necessary
    so that we are in sync to resolve the issue.
    Thanks.

    hi i have just completed an imovie project and tried to save a hard copy on the desktop so i dragged the project file from the home page then movies folder and now the prioject seems to be lost , how can i get it back ?

    It's a Finder feature, related to Quick Look. You can hit the space bar in the file list to get a preview.
    If that doesn't work, you may have an issue witha  preference file or similar. I find rebuilding the launch databse works quite well resilving tis kind of thing, as does trashing Finder preferences

  • How do I get a copy of the Mountain Lion OS that I can use to recover?

    How do I make a disc image of my Mac Mini HD that id bootable and has the operating system with all the programs, settings and data.  If I need to replace a defective hard drive it would be good to have an image on a USB flash drive to restore previous settings and the operating system -- Mountain Lion, 10.8.1.  I have been told that TimeMachine does not make a true disc image.  I want a "hard copy" of the operating system that does not require an internet connection.

    Unfortunately, the link for getting specific hardware versions has disappeared. So basically:
    Get yourself a spare hard drive freshly erased or with a freshly erased partition of around 8 GBs or more.
    Boot to your Recovery HD. Select Reinstall Lion from the main menu.
    From the beginning screen select your spare partition/drive as the target destination then begin the download.
    At the end of the download you will observe an Install button for you to click. Now this is important - as soon as that gadget appears you must abort the installation process. There are only two reliable ways to do this quickly: a. yank the cable for the drive from the computer; b. pull the power on the computer - shut it down quickly.
    This will result in your finding a folder on the drive that contains InstallESD.dmg that you can now use to create a bootable USB flash drive installer based on the special build for your model. Use it until the next public release of Lion appears or you move on to Mountain Lion.
    If you do not stop the download process immediately upon its completion you will end up with an installer that always boots to a non-functioning installation progress window instead of the normal main menu.
    Make Your Own Mountain/Lion Installer
    1. After downloading Mountain/Lion you must first save the Install Mac OS X Mountain/Lion application. After Mountain/Lion downloads DO NOT click on the Install button. Go to your Applications folder and make a copy of the Mountain/Lion installer. Move the copy into your Downloads folder. Now you can click on the Install button. You must do this because the installer deletes itself automatically when it finishes installing.
    2. Get a USB flash drive that is at least 8 GBs. Prep this flash drive as follows:
    Open Disk Utility in your Utilities folder.
    After DU loads select your flash drive (this is the entry with the mfgr.'s ID and size) from the left side list. Click on the Partition tab in the DU main window.
    Under the Volume Scheme heading set the number of partitions from the drop down menu to one. Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled.) Click on the Options button, set the partition scheme to GUID then click on the OK button. Click on the Partition button and wait until the process has completed.
    Select the volume you just created (this is the sub-entry under the drive entry) from the left side list. Click on the Erase tab in the DU main window.
    Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled.) Click on the Options button, check the button for Zero Data and click on OK to return to the Erase window.
    Click on the Erase button. The format process can take up to an hour depending upon the flash drive size.
    3. Locate the saved Mountain/Lion installer in your Downloads folder. CTRL- or RIGHT-click on the installer and select Show Package Contents from the contextual menu. Double-click on the Contents folder to open it. Double-click on the SharedSupport folder. In this folder you will see a disc image named InstallESD.dmg.
    4. Plug in your freshly prepared USB flash drive. You are going to clone the content of the InstallESD.dmg disc image to the flash drive as follows:
    Double-click on the InstallESD.dmg file to mount it on your Desktop.
    Open Disk Utility.
    Select the USB flash drive from the left side list.
    Click on the Restore tab in the DU main window.
    Select the USB flash drive volume from the left side list and drag it to the Destination entry field.
    Drag the mounted disc icon from the Desktop into the Source entry field.
    Double-check you got it right, then click on the Restore button.
    When the clone is completed you have a fully bootable installer that you can use without having to re-download Mountain/Lion.
    Note: The term Mountain/Lion used above means Lion or Mountain Lion.
    As an alternative to the above you can try using Lion DiskMaker 2.0 that automates the process.

  • How to make a safe copy of all mails or to export these?

    Hello, I'n newbie on Mac OS X. I've been wondering how to make a safe copy of all mails in my inbox or to export all of them, like on Outlook with the function "Export". I don't find such function under MAIL. Can you please help me? Thanks
    Best regards.

    Hi
    Welcome to Mac Computing.
    The folder holding your e-mail plus mailboxes etc. is located (via the Finder) in your User Account>Library>Mail folder. You can copy this folder to external media, such as another hard drive, or CD/DVD.
    If you want to save specific e-mails, follow these directions from Mail's Help section (Help Menu):
    Exporting email messages:
    You can save one or more messages as a separate file to archive messages or to import the contents into another application. You can open the saved message in TextEdit.
    Open the message you want to export.
    Choose File > Save As, and enter a name for the file.
    Choose a location for the file from the Where pop-up menu.
    Choose a format from the pop-up menu.
    If you choose Rich Text Format, the text formatting of the message will be visible.
    If you choose Plain Text, the colors, fonts, and other formatting will be lost.
    If you choose Raw Message Source, the full delivery headers will be visible. If the message has attachments, you'll only see the encoded version of the attached files.
    A Good way to familiarize yourself with OS X is to pick up a copy of Scott Kelby's book OS X Tiger: Killer Tips.
