Workaround Probably the simplest / safest option is to 'flatten' the PDF before sending it, by printing it to a new PDF. After completing your form in Preview, go to the Print menu (cmd+P) and use the PDF drop-down in the bottom-left, selecting to Save as PDF... to generate a new, 'flattened' PDF. Flattened simply means that all annotations (including ...

You can install the pstree command using either Homebrew (my personal favourite), MacPorts or Fink and you'll get a command-line, tree view of processes on your Mac. To install with Homebrew it's just: brew install pstree Once you have Homebrew on your machine.

I believe I have discovered the real reason why this happens and the cleanest work around (version 8.2 doesn't fix this for me). Why this happens: The issue for me was tracking speed (and mouse acceleration!) reverting to the OS X default and not using Intellipoint settings. After trying to learn AppleScript for 2 hours to hack around the issue and adjust ...

There is a Way to use the regular IE7 and IE8 for Windows via Wine. A short German tutorial is available at http://www.webmasterpro.de/coding/article/internet-explorer-auf-mac-os-x-installieren.html.

Apple said the following Macs will run 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) So the complement of this list are not supported to run Mountain Lion (as ...

Looks like it's not fully compatible. When you reboot your Mac, Intellipoint doesn't start when OS X boots. You need go to System Preferences and open the Intellipoint preference pane. I'm waiting for Microsoft release new version of the utility. A few links with the same issue on the MacRumors and InsanelyMac forums. I've got a temporary solution: add the ...

If money isn't an issue, or one that you can wrestle with, then I don't think there is really any better tool for this than OmniGraffle by the Omni Group. It doesn't come with interface elements by default, but there is a freely-available extensive library of options on their site Graffletopia.

This is your mac: http://support.apple.com/kb/SP544 4GB (two 2GB SO-DIMMs) of 1066MHz DDR3 memory; two SO-DIMM slots support up to 8GB A cool trick in case you want to find more about it is you can type your serial number right into the support search on the apple site and it will bring up your model and specification article.

Two ideas I can think of. First, dual boot with OS X 10.6, which still supports Rosetta. The other is to obtain a copy of Snow Leopard Server, which had a license which allowed you to run it in a virtual machine. (The license for normal SL did not allow you to run it in a VM. Lion and Mountain Lion changed the license to allow it.) Then use Parallels ...

I upgraded to Lion as well last night, and I also have CS4 design premium (Flash, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc) on a MacBook Pro, late 2008 model. You must manually reinstall the Java runtime stuff in order for the programs to open (much software update automatically began installing them after I had restarted. Please see the link: ADOBE CS4 SUPPORT FORUMS ...

Microsoft has released a new version of Intellipoint: version 8.2. Although the site says it supports support 10.4 to 10.7 only, I tested it and it seems to work on 10.8. All bugs and problems that I know about have been fixed since version 8.0. Here's the download link: http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/downloads#mouse

Snow Leopard could run on early 2011 machines because those machines were originally released with Snow Leopard. However, since yours is a Late 2011 model, a build of Snow Leopard that is compatible with your machine's hardware has never been engineered and thus would not work. If you look at the kbase article, you can see that all the Late 2011 model ...

Yes - as long as you do not rely on a library or other feature that is only available in OS X. The Pure Darwin project is a continuation of the Open Darwin project which was founded by Apple and a non-profit organization called the Internet Systems Consortium. This effort came to an end on 25 July 2006. Pure Darwin continues where this left off and promises ...

You get the following alert box: "We could not complete your purchase. OS X Mavericks cannot be installed on this computer." You then get two options. The first button is Learn More, which takes you to the system requirements page, and the other button simply says Ok. Nothing gets downloaded.

Do you get the same issue if you try Hobiconer to export your icons? Superior to Icon Composer in every way, and free. The commercial successor of Hobiconer called Icon Slate is $4.99 in the App Store, however Hobiconer is still out there for grabs (hence the link to Softpedia's mirrored file)

How to watch a wtv file on a Mac without using VLC Install WtvWatcher on the PC - this will convert all of your wtv files into dv-rms by changing the packaging, not be re-encoding, so it is really quick and deletes the useless wtv file.

According to this source, you will not be able to use a Thunderbolt cable in this fashion. You can, however, get a Mini DisplayPort to Mini DisplayPort cable from Monoprice for about $5 and that should work just fine.

Here's one page which claims that Snow Leopard can be installed on a Late 2011 MacBook Pro by using the install discs of a matching Mid-2011 model (follow the link to the full page for more detailed instructions): After getting fed up with OSX Lion and the way it handles network shares and attached drives, I decided to look into putting Snow Leopard on ...

/private/var/run is the place for system/root level pid files to live on OSX (Darwin) Locking is more complicated (or simple depending on your POV) with the system/API arbitrating device locks rather than writing them to the filesystem. Do consider the implications of fast user switching and the documentation on Multiple User Environments or simply calling ...

I'd like to confirm that it IS possible to run Snow Leopard on a late 2011 MBP 15" without ANY FLAW although AppleCare technicians told me that it is not possible ! I did it on mine (CTO, 2.2 GHz i7) bought in fev. 2012 and had not the slightest issue since. But from Apple side it is NOT recommended and certainly NOT supported . - But hey, my love and I ...

In a blank document, go to Insert → Object → Microsoft Equation Editor to insert new equations. (If you were using Word for Mac 2011, it would be Insert → Equation.) Do you see that menu item or not? If not, note that Equation Editor isn’t part of the default install, and you might not have it. You’ll need to pop your install disc back in and do a custom ...

The short answer is: You can't run PowerPC apps on ML. But as already suggested there are alternatives. Parallels or VMWare for example and a Windows Virtual Machine may allow you to run a relatively old game with decent framerate. (if you have the Windows Version, tho Blizzard games used to be win/mac on the same CD). There's no way to install Rosetta (to ...

If you create a playable CD with iTunes, then the software converts them to a format that can be played through any hi-fi or CD player and burns that to a disc. If it was a data CD you used, then that works in a similar way to a USB flash drive, just copying the files and burning them to a CD. These will not be playable in a CD player, but you can get the ...

You didn't specify whether you have the 15" or 17" model, but both support 8GB of RAM. Crucial.com has a great "Memory Advisor Tool" to help you find the memory specs of any computer. Here are the specs of a 15" MacBook Pro that matches the "About This Mac" screenshot you linked to above.

Wherever you want to there is no standard place for lock files in Unix. Only the Linux Filesystem Hierarchy Standard provides for /var/loc See Wikipaedia for some examples of the hierarchies used from there is FreeBsd As for direct OSX references see NSDistributedLock which gives no directions or example of paths to be used and shlock which gives the BSD ...

I've got a similar model to yours (black one, same age). Lion runs fine on it, and all the features work except for multitouch. You get two finger scroll, but that's about it. It's basically like having a mouse attached. That said, I don't think there are any functions that require multitouch; they all have keyboard/mouse equivalents. The performance is ...
