keystroke delay

I am experiencing keystroke delay on my new MacBook Air with Mountain Lion. I might have had it when I first got the laptop and had Lion. It is rather disturbing, though not so bad that I can't use the machine. I have Googled this, and have so far not found anything that works, or that I understand....

Re: Potential problem when using an external monitor

Yes, you are right. Normally the external monitor does go into sleep mode, and I would normally just close the laptop at night. But it wakes up in some kind of digital sleepwalking for several reasons. I have automatic back-up with Jungle disc, and that can do it. I often get emails in the middle of...

Potential problem when using an external monitor

I have had an external monitor hooked up to my older macbook for some time now. I use it when I am working in several windows at the same time. For example, I might open Mail, drag it over to the external monitor, and then open Word on the macbook to compose a reply. This is a really great tool. Oth...

Re: book-making

Yes, Indesign would be a great program, and I know that pros use that, or Quark. I did use Word to do this book. It is a translation of a Danish history book. I did buy Acrobat Professional X, and I "print" the Word docx to Adobe PDF. That seems to be working very well. I did this on a smaller book ...

Re: Mirror pages in Word

Thanks for the reply I had in fact used the same method with other documents, and had no trouble mirroring the pages. After I posted my question I went back and opened several old Word documents that had not been formatted, and had no problem inserting page numbers, and then mirroring the pages. The...

Mirror pages in Word

I have Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 installed on a macbook using Snow Leopard. I am having a problem getting the mirror pages option to work. I have tried numerous combinations of margins, gutters or not, and mirror or not. It makes little difference. I try by printing out consecutive pages, severa...

Yes, that works

I went to the link that Stephen gave above, and it worked well, just as described in earlier posts. So now I think this is under control. If I experience any other problems I will post them.
Thanks!

Re: Downloading pdf files-solution

First of all I have to say that I was mistaken in my last post. There was in fact a check in the box to display PDF in browser, but it was grayed out and inaccessible, so I must have misinterpreted that. So my problem was, how to get rid of that grayed out check. I went to an Adobe forum, where othe...

Re: Downloading pdf files

I am still at the black screen stage. I can right click on a pdf link, and download it, and then open it in preview. I can no longer open a pdf in Safari. I have no files at all in my library/internet plug in folder. My acrobat is configured in the way Stephen's screen shot shows, with no check in d...

Re: Downloading pdf files

I did go to the library, and there was only one file under internet plug-ins. It was something about Facebook, which I never use, so I deleted that. That made no difference. But it does work to right click on a link and download the file. Then I can open it. I still cannot get a PDF to open in Safar...
