OpenOffice, while adequate, isn't all that great on OS X, especially since it's essentially an OS X port of OpenOffice that runs under X11. I tried opening an RTF file in AppleWorks and it crashed on me, so that's out. For idealogical reasons, I refuse to use MS Office. Is there a good, stable word processor for OS X with a basic but reliable set of features? If all it does is reliably edit RFT files, I'll be happy.
Thanks. I had no idea what the oval was for. I must have pressed it unknowingly when I first ran Safari. Now I can see the icons. From here, it was a simple matter to set my default browser. As you can see, I'm a former Windows/Linux user who has yet to master every detail of the Mac world In fact, I just got my Mac on Thursday. I was afraid there was a flaw in the installation. Thankfully, as with the rest of OS X, the system is pretty much flawless.
There's something wrong with my preferences screen. This is what I see:http://www.home.mycybernet.net/~ldeg...l/Picture3.pdf As you can see, there are no icons at the top. It only shows me my bookmark preferences with no way to switch. This happens regardless of what I do in Safari. It looks like some kind of bug or something that was installed incorrectly.
I tried going into Safari, but when I go into System Preferences, it only gives me the bookmark preferences. There are no icons for any other preferences. Is this normal? I tried everything in Safari, and I can't seem to get into the right Preferences screen.
I'm looking to set my default browser and email client in OS X 10.3, and I read that I'm supposed to go into System Preferences and choose Internet. However, I can't seem to find that option. I'd post a screenshot if I could, but I'm not sure if this can be done. Basically, this what I see in System Preferences, Internet & Network: .Mac Network QuickTime Sharing Is there a way for me to get into the Internet preferences to set my defaults? It doesn't...
I just got my MacMini on Thursday. As a first time OS X user, I'm absolutely thrilled. The OS X experience has been absolutely delightful. However, there's only one dissapointment. For an OS that's a descendent of NextStep, I was expecting more in the way of keyboard shortcuts. I used to run WindowMaker (GNUstep) on Linux, which is supposed to be like the original NextStep OS, and I could basically assign keyboad shortcuts for everything. First of all, let me...

Somebody mentioned in another thread (can't find it) that they were looking to convince somebody (probably a relative) to buy a MacMini, but that potential customer had hear negative comparisons, and that the poster was looking for counter-arguments against the "you can get a cheaper equivalent computer from Dell" argument. This column is a detailed, methodical and convincing analysis of why Dell's bargain-basement trash is substantially inferior to a MacMini, despite...

I have a Windows PC, but I ordered a MacMini and will be transfering my files to it, including my MP3 collection and my playlists. Recently, I had to do a fresh resintall of Windows. While my MP3s were saved and I'm still able to sync up with my iPod, I lost all my playlists. They're still in iTunes, but they're empty. The first time I ran iTunes, it asked me to scan my harddrive for MP3 and I ended up with duplicates of every single MP3 I had. I had to clear my...
