SpacesSpaces Overview [F8] too crowded?
[This process is basically combined in Mission Control in Lion]
If you look at your Spaces in Leopard using F8 and there are too many applications in a window to easily select one you can still use F9 while in spaces view and they will spread out just like on the normal desktop. Podcast 97Another way to drag an application from one Space to another
Grab a window's title bar and then use Command-Tab to switch to an application which you know resides in another space -- hey presto! The clicked window is transported to the new space for you as soon as you release Command-Tab. Podcast 101Want to have more control over your TM backups?
You can switch it off in System Preferences, then in the Finder, right click on the drive you use for the Time Machine backup, that will give you the "Backup now" option, left click that and it will do a one off back up. The next time you want to back up click "Backup Now" again.
You can also right click the Time Machine icon if you have it in the Dock and it will give you that same option. Podcast 97Finder - "View/Hide Path Bar"
A new command in the View
menu in Finder.
If you select it you get a path menu at the bottom of the Finder window like the one you get in a Spotlight window when you select a file.
Also, when you can see the path bar you can R/Click an item in the path to get a menu for "Open" "Open enclosing folder" (in a separate window) and "Get Info" Podcast 97Spotlight - calculations:
If you put a calculation such as 256 + 512 in the Spotlight search box it will calculate the answer. [/list]Podcast 97The following were discussed on Podcast 98Archive and Install - Hint
If you install a later version of OSX using the Archive and Install option you may find that some of your Dock icons are still referring to the previous systems applications in your "Previous System" folder.
The solution is to "poof" the old icons by dragging them off the dock and then install the new ones on your Dock as needed.Repair Permissions in Leopard
When repairing permissions in Leopard you may wind up with a bunch of SUID warnings. With 10.5.0 there was usually one (ARDAgent) but in 10.5.1 you may have several. If you updated using Software Update you may have 9 or so warnings. Interestingly enough if you use the "Combo Updater you will have one (ARDAgent) or none.
At any rate as discussed on this thread it really is nothing to be concerned about.SUID WarningsThe following are from Podcast 99Look at your Fonts using Cover Flow and Quick Look
You can go to your font folders and see a sample of each font in Cover Flow or see the full font using Quick Look.Close Printer Utility on Dock
in Leopard when you finish printing something you don't need to close the dock icon. Just R/Click it and choose "Auto Quit"Keyboard Shortcuts
Keyboard shortcuts you make will now show up in the application drop down menus.
For example: I have said I wanted the great "Merge All Windows" function to have a keyboard shortcut. Go to System Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts. Select Application Keyboard Shortcuts, Safari, Type in "Merge All Windows" assign a shortcut - in my case Cntrl/Command/ M and not only will the shortcut work but it will show up in Safari's drop down menu.Quick access to System Profiler
Rather than first going to the Apple menu and clicking on "About this Mac" and then "More Info" you can just pull down the Apple menu and hold down the Option key. "System Profiler" will replace "About this Mac"From Podcast 100Time Machine - Finding Previous Versions
Time Machine can help you easily find the place in your backups when a file was changed.
Start Time Machine and select a file in the Finder whose previous version you'd like to locate. If you put the Finder in List view, you can see the preview for the file using Quick Look, modified date and version for an application.
Click on the big "back in time" arrow to search through the list of backups. Time Machine will automatically stop at the point where the file was last changed. If you click the back arrow again, it will stop at the next previous change point. Likewise, the forward arrow scans towards the present for changes.Toggle Quick Look's view mode via the keyboard
If you select a number of files in the Finder and activate Quick Look (by pressing the Space Bar), you can then see either one file at a time (the default), or by clicking the Index Sheet button, see thumbnails of all selected files at once.
Also, you can get to the Index Sheet without touching the mouse? Just press Command-Return while viewing one file, and you'll see all files; press the combo again, and you'll return to single file mode (and yes, adding Shift to the mix will do it all in slow motion).
And by the way, Command/Option y brings up full screen - Esc to exit!
