Adding folders to projects or otherwise changing projects will be retained for as long as the instance of the app is open. Your changes will be lost when the app is quit unless you save the project.

Actually, there are a lot of things on OS X that need to be "installed". Normally, the apps that are "installed" are packages that include certain instructions. To put it simple, the package runs a script and tells the system to create/move files in different parts of the OS. This is necessary for software like the Adobe CS suite or Microsoft Office. The ...

You could use Automator to filter the contacts according to that criteria. I haven't actually tried it, and I'm including a screenshot with some of the conditions I'd use just for reference. But still, this might help.

All software in Mac OS X is installed in /Applications, which can be found in the Finder sidebar The most Mac applications don't have to be installed, you just have to copy the applications in the Applications folder.

I finally found something that worked, and I have verified it does as well. Please see the link: http://www.dbsysnet.com/how-to-mount-ext2ext3-linux-volumes-in-mac-os-x-snow-leopard-with-readwrite-access/ Basically there is a mount option that can be added "rw+" to the file: /System/Library/Filesystems/fuse-ext2.fs/fuse-ext2.util under the Macro() ...

It sounds like something broke, as the description sounds like you're unlocking the disk but then the OS is running a disk check (that's the bar) and failing (that's why the machine shuts off.) One thing you may want to try is booting to Apple's Internet Recovery and using the tools available there. To boot to Internet Recovery: Start up your Mac and ...

My issue began after migrating from a time machine backup (10.9.2) so I can't imagine there's an OS conflict. I've done many migrations from time machine, and Mac to Mac (I'm no novice) and never experienced this issue. The external drive used for the backup isn't connected when I attempt to fast user switch, so at the moment I can't imagine what the system ...

Microsoft changes NTFS in whatever way they like because it is their filesystem. The only way to be certain that you handle all edge cases, new features, and have little to no risk of corruption is by licensing the driver directly from them (if they would even offer such a license). Remember: NTFS is far more advanced than HFS+. For example, it supports ...

You can read the current state with the following. (1 for F-keys, 0 for media/brightness etc) defaults read "Apple Global Domain" "com.apple.keyboard.fnState" You can write it, however it won't change until you reboot.

There is officially no 64-bit version of Google Chrome for Mac, neither is there a 64-bit Chromium version for Mac. You can however, download an experimental build of 64-bit Chromium for Mac.

I certainly don't speak for Apple, but to me a simple reason is that any code that Apple ships is installed across the globe and the code could have vulnerabilities, bugs or worse in it. Even perfect code has support costs associated with integration and end user support. Unless you want to pick a specific library, let's assume the popular OSS packages are ...

For Quicksilver users—exactly what I was looking for. Here is an (old) Gigaom post about it. It can be activated with a trigger key (mine is Option-Space) and then you can just type the menu item’s name in. You can install the plugin in Quicksilver’s plugins pane. Thanks to sayzlim, I found it through an Alfred Forums link in his blog post. * ...

Run defaults write -g NSOverlayScrollerHideDelay -float 3 where 3 is a value in seconds and quit and reopen applications to apply the changes.

Minecraft specifically will also recognize a jar without any compression at all—you can just rename your folder from (for example) 1.7.9 copy to 1.7.9.jar. I find this really useful with Minecraft since I don't have to zip and unzip every time for it to work.

Until Keynote 6, this was true. However, Keynote 6 uses packages for storing keynotes: test.key ├── Data ├── Index.zip ├── Metadata │   ├── BuildVersionHistory.plist │   ├── DocumentIdentifier │   └── Properties.plist ├── preview-micro.jpg ├── preview-web.jpg └── preview.jpg This doesn't stop you from creating older-style XML keynotes, since Keynote 6 is ...

It seems as though you are asking if the version numbers for iBooks on OSX and iOS are different for everyone else. The answer is that yes, these two apps which have the same name are actually wholly different apps, one for each operating system, and the version numbers are equally different. The most recent versions (as of the time of answering this mail) ...

Did you follow the instructions exactly? I had the same problem, until I realized that I had omitted the / at the end of mount -uw /. Can't comment on slowness or damaged hardware, that seems unrelated.

Stub applications are smaller apps that do work for larger, more complex apps. For example, an app can request information from a stub app concurrently with a main process that the original app is running. Then, the stub app can return information back to the main process that initiated the stub binary.

AirMail, PostBox, Thunderbird, Mailbox(Beta), MailMate, Mail Pilot, UniBox, Inky. I personally like AirMail a lot and it is very cheap. But you are free to use any of those. There are actually quite a lot Mail-Clients out there.

From terminal use: jar -cvf filename.jar ./foldername jar works much the same as the unix archive command tar, the parameters cvf mean essentially Create Verbosely Filename which will just display the contents of foldername as they are added into filename.jar. Instead of create you can use x for extract or t for test extract (aka list).

you would need to create a new instance of the application via terminal: In general it is simply : open -a 'application' -n But for Google Chrome it is: /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome --user-data-dir=my-profile-dir that gives you the ability to switch between two windows in full screen mode that are completely ...

Just had this problem myself. My setup is a media server on one bridged router with ip-192.168.1.2 bridged to another router with internet =ip-192.168.1.1. My media server is 192.168.1.222, I simply put this ip on the DMZ for router 192.168.1.2 As internet traffic still has to pass through 192.xxxx.1 I think its perfectly safe!

There's no disk letter in OS X unlike Windows. The mount point for disks is usually /Volumes. For example, files on a flash drive with the name FLASHDRIVE will be located in /Volumes/FLASHDRIVE/. The startup disk is the root, /. Therefore, the Users folder is /Users. No drive letter is prepended to this.

You say that you ran the following command: echo export PATH='/usr/local/bin:$PATH' >> ~/.bash_profile This would have appended the line export PATH='/usr/local/bin:$PATH' to your .bash_profile. However, you then ran the line without the echo. This would have broken your path, but only for the session that you're in. The ">> ~/.bash_profile" ...

You didn't see any effect because you should have restarted terminal or alternatively source ~/.bash_profile To make the changes into effect. Addings paths into the .bash_profile file is sort of like adding shortcuts into the desktop, except these are shortcuts for the terminal, i.e. you tell it where stuff is.

You certainly don't need to reinstall - just remove the offending last line of the file and restart terminal to see the effects. If you don't know how to edit the file from terminal, you can open the file in your system's default plain text editor: /usr/bin/open ~/.bash_profile Just delete the last line and save the file.

To see the rest of the permissions (ACLs and file flags), add -e and -O to the ls command. I habitually use ls -leO@ as a "tell me everything" version of ls. In this case, the problem was a "deny" access control entry, which will override the regular POSIX permissions. I have no idea how that might've gotten added to your ~/Library folder, but you can ...
