Apple's early computers ran on a variety of operating systems, including a Pascal version and one based on CP/M, before releasing its ProDOS with the advent of its 16-bit computer.

hi Apple folks

i prefer using Xcode for Python programming but i notice it has no native support (or full-featured) for debugging Python using Xcode. or, probably i missed something with Xcode?

basically, how can i have full-featured debug functions for Python code using Xcode?

thanks,

OSX Sierra - incredibly slow mostly starting Office 2016 applications.  I have a user that when starting any office apps can take 45 mins.  I logged in with a different user profile and all seemed to be fine.  Could this be cache?  Should I delete it, and if so how?  Disktools came up clean. Thoughts? Ideas?
Thanks

A client is saying they have malware on their Mac and want to reinstall the OS.  I've read through this a bit https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208496 and it doesn't seem to say anything about malware issues.

My question is: Is it better to reinstall Mac OS to clear up malware issues or erase then restore to factory settings?

Are there other things I should be aware of when performing such a task for this macbook?

Hi All,

I've got an iMac, which is doing a restart loop, just a white screen and a chime going in a loop.... the screen doesn't go blank when it restarts, stays white and you keep hearing the chime every 2 to 3 seconds, I've tried all the normal fixes, like holding the shift key, pressing command-option-r-p... nothing seems to work, would anyone know a fix?

I know last resort is taking it to Apple but the machine isn't covered by Apple Care...


Thanks

Need iPhone app to track my location

I need to sell on the road and sometimes need a reminder which stores I visited. So, a map if where I went each day would be helpful.

What options do I have?

Is there location data already on the phone I can use?

Thanks

Hello EE, I've been having difficulty with the IDrive backup software for Mac. The backup (to the IDrive cloud)  inevitably will fail on a number of files having to do with Spotlight Search, temporary browser files, the photos library, etc.

I feel that (for the most part) these types of failures can be safely ignored. I also think the reason it fails is because the IDrive software is not capable of suspending the necessary O/S daemons or processes, leading to activity that causes an issue with the file list it generates. However, it is sometimes difficult convincing my clients of this. Also, I don't wish for myself or my clients to become complacent about a backup status of "Failed."

Instead of pursuing a clean IDrive backup in that manner, I've a new strategy: Use Time Machine to backup to an external drive, then use IDrive to backup the external drive to the IDrive cloud. I think this will avoid the issue described above. I'm posting here in Experts-Exchange to ask if anyone has experience with that same strategy, or if there is some risk that I'm not seeing.

Windows laptop versus MacBook?

I am a Mac user and love certain features of the Mac. But I also love the incredibly low prices of a Windows Acer laptop.

There is one KEY FEATURE of the Mac that would make the high cost worth me staying on the Mac platform. Key Word Search!

When I try to search on Windows, you better hurry up and wait. When I use Finder, I nearly instantly get a list of files with the search word found in the filename or inside the file (GREP).

I consider this a life-saving feature that lets me find long-lost files, often when I have no idea (or interest in knowing) the physical location of the file.

Can Windows match this awesome power the Mac OS gives me to peruse my files?

Thanks.

Dear expert,

I have an external drive formatted with NTFS extension. This drive divided into 3 logical drive as you can see below.
I sold my windows PC and I do not have access to any windows PC.
I am looking for a way to merge these logical drives into one drive then use it as backup on TimeMachine.

Python 3 Fundamentals
LVL 12
Python 3 Fundamentals

This course will teach participants about installing and configuring Python, syntax, importing, statements, types, strings, booleans, files, lists, tuples, comprehensions, functions, and classes.

InDesign CC won't open on my 2018 iMac. It's stuck on loading until I eventually have to force quit. I've tried using past versions of it too, such as 2017, and I get the same issue. My other Adobe programs work fine. I've also tried opening InDesign CC on a work Macbook and a personal Macbook which worked fine. Something about this new iMac is trippy.

Mirror Apple TV on iPad Pro to view MLB-TV

MLB-TV with iPad Pro (iOS 11.4.1) consistently loses WiFi connection with LAN (44.7 mbs / possible 50) iPad rebooting necessary.

Is it possible to mirror Apple TV (MLB-TV OK here) with iPad Pro/Control Panel to view MLB-TV on iPad? Other folks will be watching TV on cable or Netflix/Amazon Prime. This is the reverse of screen mirroring (see Control Panel) as in viewing iDevice on Apple TV.

If so, are there special settings etc.?

I attempted to recover to different system from Apple Time Machine it eventually failed due to a untimely network error. Now I can not umount disk on the targeted machine. When I say I can not unmount it I mean I CAN NOT unmount it no matter what approach I use:
Disk utility -- no
Recover -- no
terminal -- no
force via terminal --no
set as a target disk -- no

terminal commands tried were unmout, unmountDisk, unmountVolume
when using recovery on target machine terminal returns the command "no such command"   (so terminal is currupt?)
I have tried all the logical options Google has presented me, I am hoping someone here has a different solution.
Thanks

Does anyone know what I need to change to get this VBA code to work in Excel for Mac? It works fine in Windows.

It is a show/hide toggle button for rows while the caption on the button changes as well. I used a form button (not ActiveX).

Sub HideDone()
Dim Shp As Shape
   
   Set Shp = ActiveSheet.Shapes(Application.Caller)
   If Shp.TextFrame.Characters.Text = "Hide Done" Then
      Shp.TextFrame.Characters.Text = "Show All"
      Range("A1").AutoFilter 10, "<>11. Published", xlAnd, "<>Cancelled"
   Else
      Shp.TextFrame.Characters.Text = "Hide Done"
      ActiveSheet.ShowAllData
   End If
End Sub

Open in new window


The message I get is
Run-time error 1004
Method 'TextFrame' of object 'Shape' failed

This code is highlighted in yellow
If Shp.TextFrame.Characters.Text = "Hide Done" Then

Hello experts,

As new users to Mac ecosystem, we were glad that we got the MacBook Air last year and didn't have to worry about buying anything extra in order to work using Air.

The USB ports and the Mini DP was good enough to work with our existing monitor, keyboard and mouse setup.

However, we recently bought the late 2016 MacBook Pro with touch bar with those obnoxious USB-C ports.

Would be great if someone recommends nice adapters/converters to use our USB keyboard and mouse and also a converter from HDMI to USB-C or a proper cable from HDMI to USB C port that would work without any issues on the MacBook Pro.

Came across this one:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BK2XL2F

Open in new window


Since these converters and cables are cash cows for FBA sellers, there are tons of these on Amazon making it very hard to shortlist.

Any thoughts would be nice. Thanks!

I have a Sharp MX-C300W all-in-one that has the ability to scan to network drives.

The network destination I have set up is on a newer "trashcan" mac running OSX 10.13.4. I have a working user name and password for the share, and am using the server's static IP in the network path.
Scan-Destination.tiff

After setting it all up, it works....that is until the next day I come in to work. Attempting to scan to this same destination after some time has passed throws a CE-04 error code, which apparently means "FTP SERVER ACCOUNT NME OR AUTHENTICATION PASSWORD INPUT ERROR" according to the error code index

The way I solve this every single time is simply by disabling and then instantly re-enabling the SMB sharing  on the Mac. This fixes it every time, until enough time has passed and it breaks again.

Any ideas why this is happening? It is so annoying to have to do this every day. If it's a bug in SMB running on the mac, does anyone know a way I can program the mac to automatically turn SMB sharing on and off automatically each day? Would love some help from the experts!

Can anyone recommend a Performance Test Benchmark software for Apple Mac's running OS X?

I'd like to measure the Disk/Ram/Disk-Swapping/etc on my current Mac against any scale/benchmark, so that I can go to the Apple store and purchase a new Apple Mac that is at least as fast as my current Mac, or compare the Performance of my other Macs again one another.

I am trying to integrate MacBook Pro's and Windows computers in to an Active Directory domain.   I have a test network setup and I have managed to add Windows computers to the domain (no surprise there) and bind a MacBook Pro.

I have a GPO which sets the basic password security - Length, complexity, age etc and I am able to logon with a standard network account both on and offline and manage the MacBook using accounts in the MacAdmin group I setup.     However I am having the following issues and I would appreciate any feedback with the exception of change to all Windows.  

1) There is close to a minute delay after the logon prompt is displayed on the MacBook before network accounts are available to logon.    This is not a huge deal unless it is the first time a user has logged on, the password has been changed in AD or "User must change password at next logon" has been checked in AD.

2) If a password change is required by AD and a user on the MacBook does not wait for the "Network Accounts Are Unavailable" message to go away and logs on with their cached credentials they receive a message that a password change is required.  If you click ok or hit esc the message goes away but the logon to the MacBook never completes and they are left with a fuzzy screen and forced to power cycle the MacBook to get back to the logon prompt

3) If the password is changed in AD and "User must change password at next logon" is checked and a user on the MacBook does not wait for the …
