Default Anyone using Mac OSX?

I'm probably the first Mac user here, but if not and you are a Mac user, tell us.

I'm on Mac OSX using the Safari web browser. So far so good. Everything I tried works.

Hi, I'm a Mac user! Nice to see another one, there are so few around. When is everyone else going to wise up and get a Mac? just teasing

Anyway, everything I tried works as well, except the Spoiler button. When I click it, it just makes the post box longer...but nothing shows up as the spoiler. I'm using Internet Explorer though...gotta try Safari.

I found another item that did not work here, but I have to tell the administrator about it.

That said, it is good to have another Mac person here.

Two questions:
  1. Which spoiler post didn't work (was it mines or the admin or both)?
  2. What version of Internet Explorer are you using?

Both didn't work for me using Internet Explorer, but when I tried later on Safari, they both worked.

I'm using IE 5.2.2.

Thanks

Would it be possible to upgrade to Internet Explorer V6? While I am using a PC running Windows 98 I am running Internet Explorer V6.

I don't know if IE for Mac is up to 6? I think it's only at 5. My computer is supposed to check every Friday to see if there are any updates for the OSX and IE is one of the things it checks, so I think I should have the latest version...Macpro, do you know?

Thanks.

I'm running OSX.3 and IE 5.2.3 and have the same spoiler problem.

Odd. I didn't even know Safari was a web-browser. It has popped up, unintentionally prompted by me, I guess, and I haven't known what to do with it.

Odd that it's IE that's having problems. In my work, it's Safari that we're usually struggling with (and not that there's anything wrong with the application, it's just that most of the world is tweaked to make IE happy).

So the spoiler button clicks and the box opens, but there's nothing to see inside? If you try and select the empty space, does it highlight "invisible" text or nothing at all?

I reported it to the person who came up with it. Sorry for the trouble! Hope we can fix it before we need to really spoiler-tag something!

Strange. The developer says she (I think it's a she) actually created the thing on a Mac -- Internet Explorer 5.2.3 under Mac OS X 10.3.3 -- and that it works fine. I wonder if I did something to break it?

Malia, can you see if you can bump up your IE version? Though Scrivener, if you're using the same config as the developer, I can't imagine why it doesn't work.

That's exactly what happens, and when I tried to select the empty space, it highlights nothing at all.

Thanks.

Microsoft announced a few months ago that Internet Explorer will not be updated anymore for any version of Mac OS. This is because Safari is now Apple's default browser on new installs of OSX as well as newly sold Macs.

Right now I am using IE 5.2.3 which seems to be working fine. The little buttons to indicate bold, italic, underline and linked text do not work with Safari and seemingly not with Internet Explorer for the Mac as well. They do work with IE for the PC on Windows 2000 which I have tried. Ryan already knows about this problem. That said the best way to edit tags on the Mac is to just manually add them in like this.... ok with the brackets around the action and slash bracket around the closing action.... kind of like this but with no spaces.... [ b ] test [ / b ] so that it looks like this: test.

As I mentioned to mel, the buttons don't work right reliably on other browsers besides MSIE on PCs, as well, so it's not so much a Mac issue than a browser one. However, there might be ways to make the quirky behavior of the editor window a bit easier to tolerate.

Log in, go to the User Control Panel (User CP), click on "Edit Options," then scroll down to "Miscellaneous Options." There you'll find a setting for "Message Editor Interface." There's "Enhanced," "Standard," and "Basic." Obviously, "Enhanced," when working properly, gives you all the buttons that work like they do in a word processor. If you have problems with it, try "Standard," and finally, "Basic."

You know it.. MACS RULE!

G5 and G4 (at work), iMac G3 for da' hale... all running OS X "Panther" v.3.3.
So far, no complaints. Great to be able to convert everything right within the OS to PDF's (if the need arises.).

I also use a PC at work with MS XP. What can I say? It's an OS X imposter! lol

I agree, Safari is a DAMNED GOOD browser. That's likely why MS stopped updating I.E. for the Mac. I like Safari's tabbed site markers, the "clean'ness" of how it displays html and it also displays "favicons", that cool icon site designers place next to the URL address to give their site a customized look for bookmarks. We implement those for our business site. I.E. only has this feature on PC's, and only if you bookmark the site. Safari ALWAYS displays it.

Speaking of Mac browsers, check out the latest OS X version from Netscape.. pretty darned good! Much better (read: FASTER) than the OS9 versions. Displays Favicons, and bookmark tabs too!

Anyways, more Mac' chatting later.

Aloha

Default Re: Anyone using Mac OSX?

Wow, this thread has been bumped up. Things certainly have improved for Mac OSX users since I started this thread. Today I use either Mac OS X 10.3.9 or Mac OSX 10.4.11 depending on which Mac I am running. My browser of choice these days is Firefox, followed by Safari and Camino. I spend about 90% of my browser time with Firefox on the Mac.

On the work PC we're at Windows XP SP3.... and stuck with Internet Explorer.

I'll move on to Mac OSX v.5 when I eventually get a new Mac.

Default Re: Anyone using Mac OSX?

FYI, it's OS X (with a space between the X).

We're running Leopard (version 5) in our office on brand spanking new Macs, and so far, so good.

Just a couple of problems.

One appears to be an SMB networking issue, as we still can't figure out (or have bothered anymore) how to get our Leopard OS'd Macs to see Wintel XP users (and vice versa) on our LAN. This wasn't a problem with OS X v.4.

If you know the solution to this one, drop a line!

Also, there's apparently a conflict with the shortcut key Command+H in Adobe InDesign CS3 and Apple OS X V.5's native keystroke commands. If you attempt to hide InDesign by pressing that command, it doesn't work. If you hide InDesign manually by going through the application's menu bar, it hides, then you can't retrieve the application, and are forced to quit.

There's a way "around it", but it's tedious. This is a known CS3/Leopard glitch, as I've researched on InDesign and Apple tech forums, that hasn't been solved yet (as far as I know!).

I also notice Leopard starts up quickly, but takes longer to shut down. Kinda' weird, and a bit frustrating when I wanna' blitz out the door after work.

Another gig of RAM is certainly on the shopping list. Still, even with the gig of RAM currently installed, I can run ALL CS3 apps simultaneously without freezing. Only InDesign is the memory hog and tends to "act up", summoning that "spinning wheel of death".

Also have yet to configure Time Machine (auto back-up). As it stands, Silverkeeper works.

I know said this some where else but for the time being my work system is running OS X (10.5.5) and Safari 3.1.2. Also planning on installing Firefox one of these days to deal with a work related web application that Safari has a minor problem with it.

Mac OS X 10.4.11 with continually-updated Firefox and Safari on the final model of the iBook G4.

Prefer Firefox, but still use Safari about 25% of the time. Especially enjoy the ability to see PowerPoint files on Firefox - although no sound, I don't miss it.

Will stick with Tiger (hey, I wen McKinley !!!) & not move to Leopard.
