Apple :: Some Symbols In PDFs- Greek Letters- Mathematics Symbols- Showing As Black Boxes In Preview.app

May 5, 2010

That explains it. Have a PDF where something as simple as a lowercase alpha, beta -- or a division sign -- is rendering as a blacked-out box.

In Font Book, all fonts on this machine are listed under PDF, as well. Running OS X 10.6.3.

The PDF works fine on a friend's Vista machine.

Apple :: Preview- PDFs- Fonts - Why Does Bold Type Look Weird

Nov 7, 2009

While using Preview for PDFs in Snow Leopard, I've noticed that fonts that should be bold look "strange" in many of the files I have to use often.

This does not happen in Adobe Reader for OSX.

Case in point:

The bottom line is supposed to be in bold print, while the top should be "normal" (as it apparently is). Is there a Preview setting I'm missing?

Apple :: Option Codes For Greek Letters

Jan 22, 2010

I know that I can use the character palette to do this, but I'm looking for a faster way.

I actually do have to use a few Greek letters with some frequency.

I know there are a few:

Option+J = ∆
Option+W = áĒ
Option+P = Éő

and so forth, but what about the other "biggies" -- alpha, beta, and gamma, for starters? Can't seem to find 'em; either there are no such codes, or I'm just not creative enough.

Acer :: Aspire 5536- Missing Screen Symbols

Feb 2, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire 5536 which is running Windows 7. Recently, I have noticed that two of the On-Screen Symbols have gone missing.

Previously, when I pressed the Volume '+' or '-' buttons, a small Icon like symbol would appear on the screen showing a speaker graphic and a moving '|||||||' bar.

Also, if I pressed the button to disable the Touchpad, a symbol would appear momentarily showing that the pad had been disabled/enabled.

How I can restore these symbols?

Dell Inspiron 15 :: Laptop Screen All Symbols - Cannot Get Into Account?

Nov 21, 2014

I've had this Dell Inspiron 15 for all of about 3 hours, and when I'm on the internet, it randomly shuts off, turns back on, and displays this:

[URL].....

This computer has Windows 8 and when I type in my password in the box I suspect is the login screen, it just comes up with more symbols.

Can't get into computer. Computer is covered in symbols and gibberish. Is there a way to factory reset this computer without actually being able to get in? Or should I just send it back?

Apple :: MB/MBP Boxes - Holds The MagSafe Extension Cable

May 9, 2009

I was bored was watching some unboxing videos on youtube (I know lame... ) Mines should be here on Wed. But I noticed something. How come some of the boxes are slighter longer in length and have an extra white box that holds the MagSafe Extension Cable, and some do not have this box and the extension cable is where the magsafe cable is. Did Apple recently come out with a new revision or something?

Acer :: Missing Text On Buttons/dialogue Boxes

Nov 12, 2008

I have just received my Acer Aspire 1690 Laptop back from Acer after repairs (was freezing all the time - they replaced optical drive, hard drive and mainboard).

I am re-installing all my software but every now and then when a dialogue bx appears with a choice of buttons to click on there is no text so I don't know what buttons do what.

It doesn't happen every time but seems to happen when the dialogue boxes and buttons are not the standard windows type but ones made by the software (ie. they may be bigger than usual) - if that makes sense?

Dell Precision M3800 :: Mouse Pointer Will Jump Over Text Boxes

Dec 11, 2014

Got an issue with new Dell Precision M3800 + HD 3100 Dock.  My issue with with the mouse pointer.  After using the laptop for 2-3 hours, I'm getting an issue in which the mouse pointer will jump over text boxes (does this in any browser, when trying to click in the formula field in excel, even when clicking in this dialog box to type).  Basically what's happening is the mouse pointer thinks the text box is higher than it really is. 

So, if I go up to the address bar from under, as I pass over the bar, the arrow changes to a text cursor, but jumps above the actual address bar...if I click, I can type in the bar.  If I keep going, eventually the arrow pointer will come back, but it will jump back down to the actual top of the address bar.  In the case of typing in this box for posting, in order to get the cursor here " ", I have to click where I have the star above (in the word "can"). 

It just seems like something is very out of sync, and I'm thinking it has to do with the graphics card or some resolution setting.  I have an Acer V246HL set to 1920x1080 + a Viewsonic VA2746M set to 1920x1080 as well.  Only fix I've found so far is to reboot.  I've messed around with the resolution numerous times.  This issue only appears when connecting multiple monitors (which is a necessity).  I did not have this issue w/ my previous laptop, which leads me to think this is not a monitor issue either

Apple :: Core I7 IMacs Showing Up DOA And With Cracked Screens

Nov 24, 2009

[url]

Quote:

Apple's new Core i7-based iMac might be a performance monster, but it looks like the whole family's having some problems getting out of the gate: in addition to the previously-noted performance issues with the Core 2 Duo models, a quick glance across Apple's support forums and on other Mac boards around the web reveals that some machines are showing up DOA and / or with cracked screens. We're a little more familiar with the DOA issue, since the new i7 we just bought doesn't boot at all, but the cracked screen issue seems to be equally common and mostly affecting the bottom left corner, from what we can tell. Now, our review Core 2 Duo 27-inch iMac is perfectly fine, and Chris Ziegler's new Core i7 machine doesn't have any problems either, so these obviously aren't universal issues, but if you're about to stick one of these under the tree for someone it might be wise to do some surreptitious testing first.

Wouldn't surprise me if it was happening during shipping, the box my MBP came in had a big hole in it. (luckily it was double boxed) Maybe they have a problem with their packaging design.

Dell XPS 13 :: Fn Key Typing Letters

Anyway my fn key is now typing letters from the middle row of kes, in varying combinations - jfsda, jfsd, jfs, jfa, jfk. When I noticed, I left the machine upside down to dry out for a few days but nothing changed.

HP/Compaq :: Less Then 1 Month Old, Letters On Keyboard Are Already Fading

Mar 15, 2010

I've had my DV7T CTO for less then one month and the keyboard letters (on each key) are already starting to fade/rub off. This is insane! I suppose I'm going to have to do without a computer now to send this in to get it replaced instead of HP just sending me a replacement keyboard... Why do they insist on everything being sent into them? A keyboard replacement takes all of 5 minutes to do.

Dell Latitude E5540 :: Doubles Letters And Spaces Randomly?

May 6, 2014

I regularly find that,  with a  single keystroke, my brand new Dell Latitude e5540 laptop randommly produces 2 spaces (most often) and double letters (sommewhat less often than the doubled spaces, but consistently and  predictably). The faster I type, the more oftenn the errors occur... I have  found  it to be an issue of how hard I strike the keys. The keys  controlled by my dominant right hand are most often affected whereas those controlled by my pinkie fingers NEVER have been affected.

I  amm only one of many employees at my place  of  work who all are experiencing the same problemm. I have asked repeatedly for Dell to let me know the extent of this problem and whether they have a recall of this model (which, as far as I can tell, is pervasive with this particular mmodel). My persistent questions have never been answered by Dell, despite numerous contacts with 3 different agents.

P.S. If you notice double letters where there should  be single letters or   extra spaces in this e-mail and this post scrippt, please read on for the reasonn: I am using the brand new Dell Latitude e5540 computer our school system recently purchased to write this e-mail. I have simmply givven up  editing my typing... you're getting the spontaneous errors caused by this computer so you can see for yourself and hopefully to motivate Dell to fix the problemm soonner, rather than latter.

  IMPORTANTLY, if you are having similar problems with YOUR BRAND NEW Dell Latitude e5540 laptop you specifically will NOT have tthese problems if you use an external keyboard... it only occurs with the laptop's built in keyboard) PLEASE send me your servvice  tag (S/N) nummber from the bottom of your Delll LLatitude e5540 computer and I will include your commputer in my conntact with Delll about this problem. (It is  a problemm of this particular model... I have never experiennced this before with any other computer).
