Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

Primitive problem. I have a desktop file in my macbook that contains the documents from a long book I am writing. I bought CS4InDesign mistakenly thinking I could manage it. Now: I have one desktop INDB icon ("greatest") and next to it on my desktop I have a file called "GREATEST"" created under microsoft word (office) via mac. What I want is to drag my "GREATEST" file into the "greatest" indb file. (the files are either word docs or rtfs.) Then I want to be able to work with in design and move my files around to make a coherent list that conforms to my outline. I want to be able to move my material into something chapters and then write within those chapters.

Its possible by using the insert features of the INDB, possible that you can attach this file.

    You need to chose a final format for your file.

    Let say that you want the final result in ind from indesign.

    You have two choces.

    You save from word to RTF format, then import on indesign the file.

    You copy and paste part of the files from Word to Indesign, you will still lose part of the format.

    Another option may be saving the file as html , that is opened by word and indesign, but here the problem is that in HTML you have poor formatting options.

Hello, I recently bought an LG DX5 mini external hard drive and didn't realize that the only disc it came with was a mini disc for a web book. I need to know how to format it so I can use it with my...


Your MacBook should recognize the default file system already used to pre-format the LG extenal hard drive at the factory. You'll be able to write and read from it without issue. In fact, if you intend to ever also use it with a Windows machine, using it and leaving it in its pre-formatted state is recommended. As a novice user, I'm imagining you'll use the external drive for file storage. You'll only need to format it specifically for your MacBook if you intend to use it for more specialized MacBook tasks (like using the built-in Mac backup utility). In which case, the instructions to format it for Mac is available here -

Hi
you may face this issue because of differences between mac and windows file systems/partition table and security attributes that may disallow any further changes.

1-try to connect you HDD to a windows Computer and Backup all your files before loses any data(use more newer version of windows like windows 10 build 1709 windows XP is old/out of services and has many problems)
2-after a full backup in windows try to connect your HDD to your mac and format it via your MacBook
3- after formatting your HDD try to reconnect your HDD to windows and copy your files to HDD(windows has a compatible file systems that could read/allow/write mac file systems/partition and its attributes)

4-enjoy

best regard

I mistakenly changed the hard drive name on my MacBook and have lost access to iPhoto and iMusic files. Is there a way to recover my previous desktop and access settings?


I take it that you have forgotten the original name of the hard drive if not just rename the disk. Failing that go into itunes go to preferences and then click on the Advanced tab and you can then change where you media files are.

For iphoto look at this article on the apple website

Migrate Palm address book to MacBook


This is a general answer to head you in the right direction, I hope. Reply back if you need more detail.

If you are syncing with Windows Palm Desktop software, you can (most likely) export contacts, calendar and memo items to a CSV file.

CSV files are data standards. They're simply text files with a comma-delimiter that designates where fields end. This makes them cross-platform compatible.

Once you export to CSV files, get them on your mac (email them to yourself, put them on a flash drive etc) and then import them into iCal, Address book etc.

Need to add employee e-mail address to xerox 440st so we don't have to type it in each tme



NOTE: Accessing the Public Address Book is optional. The Document Centre will accept a Public Address Book file that contains a list of user names and their E-mail addresses. This file must be Comma Separated Values (CSV) format for the device to be able to read the file contents. The majority of word processing packages will allow you to create a CSV file. A selection of e-mail applications will also allow you to export a list of users in the CSV file format.

The completed CSV file is imported to the device through CentreWare Internet Services. The file must have the .CSV file extension. A valid CSV file format includes the name and SMTP e-mail address. The CSV file should be created so that the Names are in one column and the E-mail addresses are in the next column. For example, the following are both valid format CSV file entries:

Smith, Smith@company.com
Smith, John - john.smith@company.com

The order in which entries are displayed in the Public Address Book at the Document Centre will depend on how the entries are sorted in the CSV file.

NOTE: This solution assumes Microsoft Internet Explorer is being used as the web browser. Other web browsers may vary. You may need to contact your System Administrator to perform this solution, as it requires knowledge of the network’s email system. Configuration of the LDAP directory settings requires the network to support LDAP Services.

The Document Centre will have to be configured for TCP/IP (IP Address, Subnet Mask, Broadcast Address, Gateway Address). Before you begin, print a Configuration Report and make sure the Document Centre has an IP address and the HTTP protocol is enabled.

From the workstation desktop:
  1. Click on [Start], point to [Programs], and select [Internet Explorer] to launch Internet Explorer.
  2. Click on [File] from the toolbar, then select [Open]. The Open window will be displayed.
  3. Enter the IP address for the Document Centre in the Address: field, then press [Enter] on your keyboard. CentreWare Internet Services window will be displayed.
  4. Click on [Index] in the upper, right corner of Internet Services. The Index window will be displayed with a list of hyperlinks to different areas of Internet Services.
  5. Click on [Public Address Book ] from the list of hyperlinks. The Public Address Book Settings window will be displayed.
  6. Click [Browse]. The Choose File window will be displayed.
  7. Browse to the location of your Address Book File (*.CSV).
  8. Highlight the CSV file and click on [Open]. The path for your .CSV file will be displayed in the Address Book File (*.CSV) field.
  9. Click on [Import Now]. An 'Are you sure you want to overwrite the existing Address Book? This cannot be undone' message may be displayed. Click [OK] to import the address book.

    NOTE: You cannot import a .CSV file with a blank name or e-mail field.

  10. An Enter Network Password window may be displayed. In the User Name: field, enter the system login of admin, in lower case letters. In the Password: field, enter the system password, then click [OK].

    NOTE: If you do not know the system password, contact your administrator. The initial system password at machine install is 1111 for the Document Centre 460|470|480|490, and 22222 for the Document Centre 425|430|432|440. If the administrator encounters a problem with changing or forgetting the machine password, a service call must be placed.

  11. Click on [Map Existing Address Book] to identify which headings in the CSV file contain the name and e-mail address to use in the Public Address Book.

    NOTE: If the CSV file contains names and e-mail addresses only, the file may map automatically.

  12. Click on the [Display Name] drop-down menu under the Imported heading. Select the heading that corresponds to the data you wish to use as the display name in the address book. The data you selected will be displayed in the Imported Sample field.
  13. Click on the [E-mail Address] drop-down menu. Select the heading that corresponds to the data you wish to use as the e-mail address in the address book. The data you selected will be displayed in the Imported Sample field.

    NOTE: If you are using a DC460|470|480|490, and if the CSV file does not contain a heading row, the drop-down menu will contain information from the first line of data in the file. For correct Public Address operation, the display name must map to a user name and the e-mail address must map to an SMTP format e-mail address, for example, name@domain.com.

    If you are using a DC425|430|432|440 and if your CSV file does not contain a heading row, the first row of data will be lost.

  14. Click on [Apply New Settings] to save any changes.

    NOTE: If you click on the [Clear All Addresses] button all entries will be removed from the current public address book.

  15. Click on the [X] in the upper, right corner to close Internet Explorer and return to the desktop.
