With my PowerBook G3, when I highlight text that is more than one page long,
it scrolls really fast even if barely to the bottom edge of the window. Is
there a way to slow it down? My previous Macs would scroll slow enough this
was never a problem.
I tried the obvious and slowed the tracking speed of the track pad way down,
but it didn't help.
JPEG is an image file - so theoretically there is no text in it. This is
probably your problem with treating the data. If you want to rework the
image file, Graphic Converter (www.lemkesoft.com) is an excellent piece
of shareware that will permit you to cut & resize most graphic files. You
can try it out as long as you want before paying for it. If you want to
convert the image file to text directly, it's possible something like
OmniPage, TextBridge or ReadIris (which usually work with scanners) may
work, but I've never tried this.
I have been getting some very good information which people are sending to me
in JPEG attachments. I don't have any trouble opening and reading the
documents, but I can't figure out how to copy them. I need to reformat them
for size, remove the email message, a variety of things.
I know there is something simple I am missing.

I finally got a connection!! The answer was using the wireless connection
to upgrade and configure the Base Station rather than using an ethernet
connection as I had been trying to do. Everything's working fine. Now,
all I have to do is figure out how I get my old non-airport equipped
desktop computer to connect to the Airport Base Station. I know I have to
use an ethernet connection, but I'm at a loss as to how to proceed from
there. The answer is probably in the Apple Tech Info Library, so I'll try
that first. But don't be surprised if I'm back here in a day or so
looking for help.
I have been completely unsuccessful in setting up a connection to my
Airport Base Station. I've downloaded four titles from the Apple TIL,
followed each and every one of them religiously, and still cannot get my
Airport Base Station to show up in the Airport Admin Utility.
I figure I must have done something wrong when I first tried to set this
thing up using Airport 1.0 several months ago (I couldn't connect then,
either, and gave up after a while). However, I recently upgraded to
Airport 1.2 thinking that might do the trick, but that hasn't worked,
I've followed the TIL "Base Station Forced Reload", which involved
resetting the Base Station back to its original settings, and still can't
get the computer to recognize it.
Has anyone else had this problem? If so, were you able to fix it? And, if
you did, how did you do it?
I've been trying for several days to get this thing to work without
success. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated!!
