Hey Eric,
Thanks for taking the time. Unfortunately no that does not solve it. Same as swipe it will get me there and it will show separate programs spaced out. The issue I am having is that all my open word files are bunched up in a pile on top of each other. I can see the edges of each one but I want them to be separated from each other enough that I can visually identify what file is what.
Again, thanks for trying, it is appreciated.

  • I have a mac book pro running Lion 10.7.4 and every time I use Google Earth The computer crashes by lowering a black curtain and then asking me to hold the power button down until it closes and press the power button again to restart it. Can I fix this?

    I have a mac book pro running Lion 10.7.4 and every time I use Google Earth The computer crashes by lowering a black curtain and then asking me to hold the power button down until it closes and press the power button again to restart it. Can I fix this? It bugs me when I'm looking at real estate.

    I really don't have an answer for that one. I guess that while trying to get things working correctly, I would use the most basic monitor I had which in your case would be the Eizon using the Thunderbolt port and adaptor.
    When you boot into Safe Mode the startup is quite slow, but you should get the Apple logo and then the spinning gear below it (release the SHIFT key when it appears.) Then after a little more time you should see a gray progress bar appear below the spinning gear. When that disappears the computer will startup to a login screen.

  • Using Logic 9 with mixer and audio line in on Mac Book Pro.

    Hello, I Just began studio recording, and am making the switch from garage band to logic 9.
    I do not know how to make my instruments play through logic 9 using a mixer and a Line In connection to the mac like I could with garage band.
    Please scroll down to the bold underline text for tl;dr
    I am self taught, and never thought I would love working with sound, and I spent over a year touring the US doing live sound for concerts and am now helping out with live studio recordings, and projects on my own.
    It started as something to do to fight boredom and to help, basically making sure nobody touched the mixer or to unplug it if things caught on fire.
    By the end of the year I had been helping "Others" with live sound, and I learned a lot about the features and trims on the analog mixer that are more complex than "mixing the volume of each track" lol.
    So please be patient with me. I do not know many of the terms, I just "feel" when something is not right and know where to go to in order to fix it or make it better, I dont have much practice when it comes to the technical side with computers and sound.
    so I will try my best to understand your help. 
    Anyway's, I looked up online, and I cannot figure out how to get logic 9 to playback instruments set up on my mixer.
    I currently have Male L/R 1/4inch to 8th Inch cables coming from main into the Line In port on the mac.
    I know this setup is called "stereo" (I think?) and Im limited with only two separate tracks to record, so I have my selected tracks panned right and left for two separate inputs on the program.
    I know everything works because I had it all setup on garage band, I changed nothing for logic, but all I can find are MIDI tutorials and I am using analog to line in, not MIDI.
    Please let me know what I have to do to bring up two separate tracks, and also be able to hear them wile I play before recording.

    Kudos to figuring it out yourself.
    Yes, Logic is geared to the professional user, you will need to set up the program to your particular way of working, Logic was well developed for professional use long before Apple purchased it, it's not an Apple program per se. It's complex and offers a myriad number of choices so that it can be configured to many styles of working, there's often 3 or 4 ways to perform the same function.
    Logic insists the user educate themselves... which is a good thing.
    Here ya go!

    "Exploring Logic Pro" is a good one to start with.

  • I can't update the iMovie and iPhoto because i bought my Mac book pro off amazon. is there a way i can take it to Apple and have them fix it? do i need to buy something? New to the whole Apple merchandise lol.

    the title pretty much explains what i need help on....

    It is probably nothing to dowith where you bought you Mac.
    It is most likely because you did not accept them into your Mac App Store account before using the apps when you set up the new Mac. So now they are one-trick-ponies that cannot be installed on any other Mac you may own, nor updated, as per their Terms of Use.

  • I have a Mountain Lion license and I would like to use that license in order to upgrade my old mac book pro running Lion.

    How can I do it without purchasing Snow Leopard again?  Currently this version of OSX is not equipped with AppStore.  Thanks a lot in advance.

    You are going to have to upgrade to Snow Leopard before you can install Mountain Lion.
    Check that your computer is compatible with Mountain Lion.
    To check the model number hold down the option/alt key, go to the Apple menu and select System Information.
    MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer) 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
    Model Numbers                  Computer Compatibility - Apple  
    If your computer isn't compatible, you might be able to upgrade to Lion.      
    Computer Compatibility - Lion
    Check to make sure your applications are compatible. PowerPC applications are no longer supported.        Application Compatibility
    You can also check which applications are PowerPC by going to the  menu, select About this Mac, click on More info…, then click System Report and select Software/Applications.
    If you have applications that you want to use that aren’t compatible, you can retain Snow Leopard and create a new partition to install Mountain Lion on or you can run Snow Leopard  server in a virtual mode.
    Do a backup before installing.
    Boot using the disks that came with your computer, the Snow Leopard DVD (if installed) or the Recovery volume (command -R) if upgrading from Lion. Use Disk Utility to Verify/Repair  the disk and run Repair Permissions. Restart normally.
    Upgrade to Snow Leopard (if required), then update to 10.6.8.     Snow Leopard Purchase    
    If you can/do upgrade, I recommend you make a copy of the installer and move it out of your Applications folder. The installer self-destructs. The copy will keep you from having to download the installer again.  You can make a bootable DVD/USB stick to install using this free program.

  • Ipad (OS 5.1.1) using pages incompatible with icloud.  If I open up one of the docs from icloud, I can no longer open it on my ipad.  Looks like the pages version gets updated to a version that is incompatible with my ipad.

    I have the original ipad (OS 5.1.1) using pages 1.7.2 and backing up to icloud.  If I open up one of the docs from icloud, I can no longer open it on my ipad.  Looks like the pages version gets updated to a version that is incompatible with my ipad.  Is there anyway stopping icloud from changing the version and is there a way to recover the old version of the document on my ipad?

    Upgrade to Snow Leopard - it's compatible with the latest version of iTunes, and still supports PowerPC applications.
    $19.99 - http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573Z/A/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard
    Snow Leopard is required if you wanted to upgrade to Lion, anyway, which you may want to in the future if the latest version of iTunes no longer supports Snow Leopard.

    I have OS 10.8.2 and use wireless at home just fine.
    When I visit a friend with only a cable modem internet my Mac Book Pro will not connect.
    I see that the Mac Book Pro is picking up the internet when I check the internet preference section but it will not open Safari.
    What do I need to do connect via a cable modem?

    You need to power off the modem for 15-30 seconds, then power back up and then connect. The modem is remembering the last connection (your friend).

  • HT201335 Is there an  app that I can use with apple TV to mirror my older Mac Book Pro ?

    Is there an  app that I can use with apple TV to mirror my older Mac Book Pro mid 2009? If not is there a software patch that will allow me to mirror ?

    In my own opinion it didn't work well enough and I don't use it, I have fairly high standards when it comes to stuff like this. But from what I can gather it seems like it's the best of the rest! many here have said they like it.
    There used to be a trial period, but I couldn't say whether that's still available.

    Sounds like you bought the iPad secondhand and the previous owner did not remove it from his/her iCloud account.
    If you are unable to contact the original owner, the iPad is (unfortunately) useless to you.

  • I am using itunes version11.1.3.8 and an iphone 4s version 7.0.4. Is there any way that I can create my own ringtones as I had done in the past? Thank you.

    I am using itunes version11.1.3.8 and an iphone 4s version 7.0.4. Is there any way that I can make my own ringtones? I have always done so in the past (Android). I much prefer to hear my songs when someone calls. Thank you.   

    I have tried to follow all the steps correctly. I presently have on itunes 2 entries:
    1. song.m4r with this highlighted on info screen but song location.m4a on summary screen. I have enetered "OK" several times.
    2. song no suffix on info screen but song location .m4r.mp3 on summary screen
      After syncing I then go a contact and edit it. Trying to change ringtone does not give me an option for the ringtone that I created only those that were preloaded. Is there something that I need to do here? The ringtone (at least one of them) does appear in my song  list and I can play it. I don't know how to check for its properties on the iphone.
    I do not have an itunes created entry on the sidebar for ringtones (I did create a playlist myself).

  • I am getting no signal to my dj mixer using m-audio firewire audiophile sound card connected to my mac book pro using Traktor Dj software can anyone help?

    I am getting no signal to my dj mixer using m-audio firewire audiophile sound card connected to my mac book pro using Traktor Dj software can anyone help?
    The firewire port reads the dj software and I can hear music playing through the sound card when I plug my headphones into it but there is no signal to the hardware (my dj mixer).
    I have reset the firewire by turning off my mac book pro for a few hours and can see the sound card device in the fire wire section after clicking on the apple icon on the top left corner of my mac.
    My dj mixer works on another mac computer with the same soundcard and different firewire cable.
    Hope someone can help
    Thanks
    Wayne

    kmiddlet88,
    yes, it could be due to nearly anything listed in your kernel extensions, startup items, launch daemons, launch agents, or user items above. Please check all of your installed third-party software to make sure that the versions which are installed on your MacBook Pro are compatible with Mavericks; uninstall every software package which isn’t Mavericks-compatible. After you’ve done that, boot into Safe mode, and see if you still get the beach ball of doom there. If it doesn’t appear there, restart normally and see if it appears then.

  • Can I use the IRig to plug in my guitar on my mac book Pro or it just works in ipad, ipod and iphone?

    Can I use the IRig to plug in my guitar on my mac book Pro or it just works in ipad, ipod and iphone?

    From their website:
    Got a Mac? Get an iRig!
    Now for the hidden features… if you have a newer Mac computer, you can use the iRig as an audio interface for it. The newer Mac models feature a headphone jack that act as a headphone/microphone input for headsets. This means that you can also use your iRig with your Mac laptop or desktop machine to take advantage of the higher processing power of your machine and you don't need an additional audio interface to use it. Simply plug the iRig into your headphone jack, plug your headphones/line out into your iRig and you've got a fully functioning audio interface for guitar/bass/keyboards, or any other instrument with a ¼" out. Pretty cool.

    How old is the MacBook Pro?  AirPlay is only supported on 2011 and newer models, due to the requirements it has in hardware for graphics acceleration.

    You can get replacement System Install & Restore CD/DVDs from Apple's Customer Support - in the US, (800) 767-2775 - for a nominal S&H fee. You'll need to have the model and/or serial number of your Mac available.
