Read Me First: Other App's Welcome

Welcome to the Other Applications Forum

This forum is for the discussion of various applications not specifically noted in other forums.

Note: If a particular application starts getting enough posts, we can always create a dedicated forum for that specific application. Right now this is just a catch all so we can cover all the bases.

Try this first:
If you are experiencing some odd behavior try these things first:

  1. Restart your computer and try the task again with only the specific application running. Sometimes a restart can fix things and it's an easy thing to try.
  2. Use Apple's Disk Utility Application to Repair Permissions, Restart the computer and try the task again

To get the most out of this forum, when asking for help please remember:

  • You can perform a Search to see if your question has been previously covered
  • Post the name and version of the specific application, and the version of Mac OSi X you are using. Some issues may be specific to either or both of those items
  • Be reasonably descriptive as to where in your process a problem is occurring.
  • If things were working normally, when did the new problem occur? For example, did you recently run a software update just before the problem occurred?

To find out what version of an application you are using:

  1. With the application running, choose Application Name menu > About Application Name. The Application Name will be the specific name of your program, for example PhotoShop Elements
  2. A dialog will open listing the version number

To find out what version of Mac OS X you are using:

  1. Click on your Desktop to make the Finder the active application
  2. Choose Apple menu > About This Mac. A dialog opens and the version number is listed there.
