Move your mouse all the way to the top of the screen so the menu bar drops down. Then hit the blue double-arrow button in the upper-right corner.

Workgroup Manager is busted.


I just installed the Server Admin Tools for 10.7. "Server Admin" seems to work, but not "Workgroup Manager".

- Every time you open it, it opens with however many connection dialogs you had open, plus one (open it 20 times, it will open with 20 windows).

- It will NOT connect. I enter in the server name, username, password, then hit enter - it just sits. I can close the program, so I know it isn't locking. It just isn't connecting or doing anything.

I deleted the com.apple.WorkgroupManager* files from ~/Library/Preferences, but it didn't seem to help any.

That works fine in Safari but not in full screen Chrome. I've no idea how to exit full screen in Chrome.

Dave, promise me one thing: next Christmas, let's take the bus.

So I was in such a rush to install Lion that I didn't make myself a copy from the installer. Is there a way to do this after you're on Lion? Re-downloading from the App Store doesn't work because it says I have a newer version already downloaded.

Chrome isn't using the system fullscreen support, it's using its own implementation.

Try hitting ⌘-Shift-F.

Server in general is a hot mess.

I wouldn't bother installing it yet even for evaluation purposes. Hopefully they can sort out the issues for Server 10.7.1, because there's a solid foundation underneath the slapdash finish work.

Unless you're trying to admin a Snow Leopard server from 10.7 client, in which case I got nothin'.

Nope, it's new for Lion. Great little feature (especially if you leave "please randomly rearrange my spaces" turned on).

This is me trying to install the newest version of Xcode from the App Store. It's telling me to close iTunes but iTunes was never open to begin with. What do I do?

error1 posted:

The new Safari version is probably awesome enough to make me switch back from Chrome, full screen browsing and swiping two fingers left and right to navigate pages is implemented really well.

You realize that in SL you could swipe three fingers left and right for the same functionality right?

It's a new feature of Lion. You can also see this in action in TextEdit. If you want to see your minimized windows instead of recent documents, sucks to be you.

Well whatever is it, I want them gone. How do I get rid of them?

Holy poo poo this owns. If you replace the drive on your new MBA or Mac Mini, you just boot up to Internet Recovery mode, connect to wifi, authenticate your App Store ID and it re-installs Lion for you over the internet.

This is how I feel as well. I don't really get what Launchpad offers that isn't already available through the Application folder. Or by just typing in the name of the program you want to run through the search.

It doesn't offer anything strictly new, but it has advantages over those two methods. For instance, you can't search for an application if you can't remember the name (or misremember the spelling). The Finder interface is a little unintuitive and hard-to-find for new users. And you can reach the launchpad with a single multi-touch gesture.

It's not really designed for power users but it's a helpful crutch if you're new to Mac.

There's much hate for two monitor setups. I have five programs always open, visible on all Desktops on my left screen for monitoring and such, and now every time I switch a Desktop it animates the left screen and changes its wallpaper and zoome those applications in again.

How do I add a js-bookmarklet to the Bookmarks Bar in Lion?

For example: http://translate.google.com/translate_tools
In SL I could just drag the link to the Bookmarks Bar, this doesn’t seem to work anymore.

//edit: Nevermind, it works just like it used to. Not sure why I couldn't drop it the first few tries, maybe I had a hidden dialog box open.

will there ever be a way to jump from leopard to lion or is SL always going to be a required step? I've googled around and there's no good info on what will happen down the road. Will the thumb drive edition allow for direct upgrades?

I want to upgrade but I'm not in a huge rush, and find it kind of annoying having to buy an OS I will not use.

You don't need to do this. The OS X installer is smart enough to do a proper upgrade.

Is it possible to burn a DVD after running the install? I thought making a boot disc was officially supported, so I ran through the process expecting to see some option somewhere. When I didn't see it, I searched Google. Everything I found said to go into the "Install Mac OS X Lion" package, but after installing, it seems to have deleted itself.

Just installed Lion...

Using the reversed scroll thing with the magic trackpad is not bad at all. It actually makes a strange kind of sense.

Safari is MUCH more responsive. I don't know why. It was terribly sluggish and occasionally didn't even load pages on 10.6.whatever version it was yesterday. It felt like using Opera when you tell it to "load new page data every 20 seconds".

iTunes looks better for some unknown reason.

Still fiddling with it, but it is a definite improvement. I'm a new Apple user, but this has made me a bit of a fan. Then again, it kinda frightens me to think of how cruddy Safari might have been for the last 9 years or so for the rest of you.

The full screen option is awesome considering the maximize button doesn't actually maximize some windows the way Windows does it.

edit: the scrollbar can be turned on in the preferences...

how much do you think this sweaty ceo is worth?

Aww, the new version of Safari got changed the behavior of the back button. It used to do something (always rerun scripts?) that meant unread post counts were accurate when backing into thread lists. Now, it shows the old count like Firefox does, meaning to get the updated counts, I have to hit refresh. The new features are nice otherwise, but that one feature made browsing the forums even nicer. Is there a reason for the new behavior?

How so? I tried opening the Organizer from a fullscreen Xcode window, and it actually went through the whole animating to fullscreen deal itself.
