There is away of opening an open application which is something like cmd + tab. It opens the icons in a panel on the centre of the screen but how do you open them? Cheers David Gary Rosenzweig 8/11/10 @ 9:00 am Command+Tab tab shows you the Application Switcher — these are applications already running. Just hold Command down and continue to press Tab until the application you want to switch to is outlined. Then let go of Command to switch to it. Brian 8/11/10 @ 5:46 pm I also noticed that CMD+DownArrow opens a selected application or file. I don’t think it was covered in the video. I don’t remember how I figured that one out. Also, what software did you use to do the screen capture? It’s definitely not ScreenFlow. Gary Rosenzweig 8/11/10 @ 9:17 pm That’s at 0:23. Usually I make the MacMost Now videos with Wirecast + iMovie. But in this case I did use ScreenFlow, yes. JJJ 8/12/10 @ 8:17 am Gary, You video’s are probably very interesting but many non-Americans do have great difficutty in understanding what your talking about; – please talk •much• slower and – get rid of that terrible American accent – take a course in “BBC-English” Or – even better – show story in writing also. BTW: Apple’s promotional video’s are just as bad as yours (!) Best wishes (I’ll keep on readung MacMost) Gary Rosenzweig 8/12/10 @ 6:03 pm From me, I guarantee you will always get one thing: me. That is, me doing my videos as a genuine person that really talks like you see in the videos using his real voice. I’m sorry if that isn’t what you would like. But I realize I can’t please everyone. :) Scudman 8/12/10 @ 9:01 am Informational and cool too. No trouble understanding you at all. Don’t change a thing. Trisha 8/12/10 @ 4:53 pm I am Australian and have no trouble understanding your accent. Don’t change a thing. David 8/13/10 @ 3:15 am Hi Gary Thanks your reply worked, opened running apps. As for your videos don’t change a thing. If we all spoke/sounded the same it would be pretty drab world!;) Cheers (as we say in the uk:) David Pat Birkmeyer 8/30/10 @ 9:22 am Gary– Thanks for all the great podcast videos. I have learned more here about my (MAC|iPhone|iPad) than anywhere else. Of course, I let all new advocates to the Apple world know about your web site, http://www.macmost.com . In episode 436 (17 ways to open an application) you used some mouse pointer software that would create an expanding red circle when you clicked something; and created a little red ball when you were choosing from a drop down list. What is that software? I would like to acquire it, as I am planning to do some tutorial podcasts of my own in the near future. Thanks! Gary Rosenzweig 8/31/10 @ 5:52 am Thanks. That screen effect is done with ScreenFlow. rdsii64 9/21/11 @ 7:11 pm Your videos are spot on, very conversational, and barney simple to understand. I would suggest that you change NOTHING. They are fine the way they are. Comments Closed. Welcome to MacMostMacMost is brought to you ad-free thanks to its supporters!
