where do you put text documents n such? on the desktop or what?
seriously? like someone said their arent folders so were do you save txt documents n pictures n stuff?
Office software does not exist, you draw it all out in photoshop and save it as a .psd in the magical photoshop save location that you shouldn't even bother trying to access outside of photoshop. Browsing a file and directory hierarchy is considered an advanced feature, and mac users are shielded from such things so that they can't break it. Thats why they are so reliable, apple dictates the hardware it runs on and severely limits user interaction with the OS.
no folders? what the fuck?
Macs have an indexed file system meaning every program you run has its own file index. That means each saves things where it wants to and understands where they are. This prevents things like viruses from finding your files because the Mac keeps them hidden in the index where they belong. If you override the defaults and start moving things around you'll run into problems.
As was already said, you should use photoshop, and it will handle where the files belong on its own, by default. You don't need to mess around with anything else. When you want to open something you worked on before, just tell it to open, and it will automatically take you where you need to be!
wa? im saying like on microsoft i can left click and open new text document and i can type out a list and then put that text document in my briefcase... im wondering is there a way to make list and stuff like that...
Not really, you shouldn't really be messing around with files on a mac outside of the programs that created them.
Briefcase? wtf are you using windows 95?
so you cant make text documents and save them?
there's no way to make list or do coding?
YOu can make text files. Get nufile.
yeah cuz im starting a site/forum and ill need to be able to edit shit
no, really dont save it in that folder called documents or anything
only as pdfs saved from photoshops though
It's really pretty sad that you have to download a program to jot down a quick note on your computer. I can't believe macs come with no office software.... what do you people use? OpenOffice? Because I heard MS Office runs like crap on that emulator thing you guys have to use to use any good software.
dude, motherfuckin textedit.app
I dont know about anyone else ... but I put them in my Documents folder
There is a MSOffice for OSX and it runs perfect after the latest update. No need to run Windows on our computers. Honestly, the times Ive needed to run XP on my Mac is when I wanted to play Skifree or Scorched Earth which are old DOS games.
holy fucking hell your dock is a clusterfuck
i highly doubt google earth is launched on a god damn daily basis
command+space > app launcher
app/docs/utility folder in dock ftw
I use every app on there at least weekly..or it wouldn't be there
And yes, I usually do use quicksilver. It's also much larger and prettier at full res.
2 versions of toast? really?
One of the things I do a lot of is burn media. I have 2 internal burners, one for each. There are actually 4 instances of it on my G5 because I have a stack of externals on that rig
The folders labeled "Documents, Pictures, Music, etc." is where I keep things just like on a Windows PC.
