How to enter a line break in Excel for Mac

How to enter a line break in Excel for Mac

Most users won't ever need to enter a line break in an Excel spreadsheet cell - but if you do - it's not as easy as you might think! Simply hitting the enter key makes Excel jump to the next cell. So how is it done? Using Shift-Enter doesn't work, but fortunately there is another key combination that does work: Ctrl-Alt-Enter (or Ctrl-Option-Enter) That works perfectly - problem solved! I'm using Excel for Mac 2011 but I expect it will work in all Mac versions. Read more »

Dreamweaver CS5 for Mac loses site FTP logins - a solution

For months now I've been frustrated by a really annoying bug in Dreamweaver CS 5 Mac. For some sites it just refuses to remember FTP logins, whilst for others it keeps them fine.

Photoshop CS5 crashes after upgrading to Mac OS X Lion - Solution

Photoshop CS5 crashes after upgrading to Mac OS X Lion - Solution

After upgrading to Max OS X Lion I found that each time I opened a file in Photoshop CS5 it would crash just moments later. I also noticed that if I created a new file in Photoshop, and then reopened that file, it would not crash. I did the usual Google searches for an answer but nothing I found seemed to help. I tried disabling OpenGL in the Photoshop preferences in case it was a video driver issue (that seemed to be the most popular suggestion I found) - but it made no difference. After lots...

3 Quick Mac OS X Keyboard Tips for Windows Users

3 Quick Mac OS X Keyboard Tips for Windows Users

After being a Windows user for many years, switching to Mac OS X was quite a daunting prospect. But I needn't have worried - it was far easier than I expected. However, there were a few missing keys that threw me for a while: Where on earth is the # key? I couldn't believe that standard Mac keyboards just didn't have the # key anywhere! Maybe it's not such a big deal for many people, but for any programmer or developer it's a very commonly used character. Well here's the solution: just press... Read more »
