This may be because some files in the editing process may be corrupted. You could try screen recording the corrupted files and replace the files in the iMovie with the new files.

I recently tested Mail in a new User account to find all the files that are modified after adding an account to Mail. These following files contain account info. I can't say with certainty that you will need to reset all files in order to reset your account. Remember to log out/in and empty the trash before resetting. Make sure you have backup if needed. ...

Your PATH environment variable seems to have been changed somewhere. Type the following command at your Terminal prompt: echo 'PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:~/bin:$PATH' >> ~/.bash_profile Exit terminal by typing exit and closing the Terminal app. Relaunch. Everything should be working now.

I suggest trying kwm https://github.com/koekeishiya/kwm From my experience, the whole intention of having one window always on top is to read/compare/reference to it while working on another app. "Tiled window manger" solutions works much better for this purpose. After having tried Athethyst https://github.com/ianyh/Amethyst, I came to kwm. I find kwm ...

You cannot change the permissions on /usr/sbin/networksetup on a Mac running El Capitan with default settings. In order to that you need to disable System Integrity Protection. Do this by rebooting the Mac, holding down Command + R to enter Recovery mode. In Recovery mode click the Utilities menu and select Terminal. In the Terminal run the following ...

Your iMac cannot find a Bootable Volume I am assuming you have something similar to the image below. This means that your iMac can't find anything to boot off of. It can be for any number of reasons - a corrupt drive, a new drive, a missing drive, etc. But basically, your iMac searched and found nothing to boot from. Recovering Your Data Stop ...

This error appears when the startup disk's operating system is corrupt. The safest way to recover the drive's data is to pull it out of the machine and connect it to a different machine. However this is difficult and not likely an option for you. I would try getting someone you know to create a bootable flash drive of an operating system (which system ...

on run {input, parameters} is AppleScript syntax, not a valid shell command. If you want to execute AppleScript in the service, use the Run AppleScript action instead of Run Shell Script.

The MacBook 13" Mid 2007 is obsolete! Meaning that even with the latest version of Mac OS X it supports, 10.7.5, the OS is no longer supported in any respect, has un-patched security flaws that will never be fixed. From a security standpoint, you'd be better off running a current version of Linux Mint then Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 on that MacBook. That said, ...

Turns out I was lucky. Booting into Single User Mode (for obtaining administrator privileges as described here) apparently caused some extra disk check. This presumably led to the restoration of some corrupted piece of (meta)data and in effect my account A, including its previous administrator privileges. Looks as if the system is back to normal now: much ...

You can install OS X using either a Snow Leopard installation disk (which should have been included with the computer–however you'll need 10.6.8 to go further, as earlier versions contain no online-only upgrade path) Or: With a thumb drive that has been set up to install OS X. You can easily create these thumb drives using instructions in Create a bootable ...

It's unfortunate that there aren't keyboard shortcuts for native split screen mode. However, I use a cheaper program called BetterSnapTool (it's like 2 or 3 bucks on the App Store) and it does have keyboard shortcuts.

What is the capacity of your flash drive ? More than 8GB ? If yes then NTFS will do. If you want to use your flash drive on Windows, only FAT32 or NTFS will be nice. If you haven't download yet, there is a lot of software that allow OS X to write into NTFS partitions. Like TUXERA NTFS or Paragon NTFS.

exFAT is the only format which will work for you as it will allow files greater than 4GB and work on Windows. Disk Utility can format using exFAT.

If you literally want the calendar week to show on your desktop, you will want to check out the program Blotter. It can be found in the AppleStore. I have been using it for over a year, very pleased with it.

Apps don't disappear automatically. If you have iMovie '11 (version 9.x, gold + dark grey icon), the Mac AppStore will show the current version of iMovie (version 10.x, purple-coloured icon) as a new item because Apple charges for major version upgrades (e.g., version 9.x to 10.x), unless the user has a voucher from purchasing a new Mac.

Activating fast-user-switching is indeed what it is meant to do. It does not log the user out, so to speak, but it does prevent account access without the user's password. We must first understand that logging out involves quitting everything that a user has open, and locking only secures the account in its current state. This does introduce some form of ...

As long as it is ok to forcibly log-out the user, you just need to to logon as the local admin using Apple Remote Desktop (available in the App Store) or ssh (through a terminal), and kill that user's loginwindow process. You must login to the computer and not simply "Share screen" from Finder. Then you will be able to login. Here's a really ...

The best way I've been able to do this is to have Spaces turned on, start the presentation, then use Exposé to take the presenter's display from the second screen and drag it to the primary monitor (same one that is doing the presentation). However, be aware that clicking on anything on your desktop will loose focus of Keynote. You could potentially use ...

I tried going into System Preferences --> Keyboard --> Text (uncheck) "Correct Spelling Automatically" It seems to have worked (so far) - I still get the option to correct without it automatically correcting (or autocorrecting to a word that was not a real word), at least in my emails, which was my biggest problem.

Your assumption about inferring total system performance from the number of running processes is incorrect. There is no such direct correlation. The underlying operating system easily scales to thousands of (idle) processes without any noticeable effect on system performance on a modern Mac. Therefore it makes no sense to spend effort on reducing the number ...

You can use the sips command to pad any JPEG or BMP image to a specified size, with a specified colour.

El Capitan has a new split full screen feature, where you can have two apps open at once. I use it all the time, but the one thing I find inconvenient about is that it will very strongly blur the un-focused window when resizing a pane: You can hold down ⌥ while resizing to see both screens respond to your resize changes -- neither will be blurred.

Try using Helium. It uses a 'customizable translucency' to keep a window on top of other windows. Plus, it won't intercept mouse clicks on top of it unless you want it to. As of now, it only supports a browser window but the question doesn't indicate if that's a requirement of the OP or not.
