normally when you install CCS the drivers get also installed and should recognize your launchpad. Try to get the latest version of CCS and try reinstalling, maybe that solves your problem. There is a new 5.1 release from february and a 5.2 beta (which must not be installed over an exisiting 5.1 installation). One thing I noticed is, that when installing a new 5.x release MSP430Ware and Grace are not installed by default and I had to do this via CCS manually.
For people who have used Windows, making windows full screen may not seem like a big feature since it has been included in Windows for ages. In fact, it may sound a bit laughable considering that it has taken Apple this long to integrate any OS wide full screen feature to OS X. However, as usual, Apple likes to reinvent the wheel and do things differently than others, and full screen is no exception.
There is one huge limitation though: running apps in full screen in multi-monitor setup is unusable. You simply cannot run an app in full screen in the other monitor while using another app in the second monitor. When in full screen mode, the other screen will only have the grey background, you cannot move any windows there nor launch any new apps. For example, you cannot run Mail in full screen in your second monitor while browsing Safari on your main monitor. And this is not the only issue. If you have a window on your second screen and make it full screen, it will be full screen in your main monitor. Essentially this means you cannot run apps in full screen in your second monitor, which is really a shame for people with multiple monitors. This is even present with QuickTime Player, you cannot use it to play movies on your TV for instance without making it your main monitor. Luckily this is only limited to QuickTime, and other players with their own full screen modes work fine.
Exposé is comparable to the Alt + Tab switcher as you can switch between windows with it. The main difference is how it displays the thumbnail previews. Now you can open a window from there by selecting it with the cursor. Alternatively, press the arrow keys and Enter to open a software window.
When I first switched from Windows to MacOS, the thing that took me the longest to get used to was app switching. On Windows, Alt+Tab cycles between the open windows of your apps. On MacOS, the similarly placed Command+Tab cycles between open apps; if you want to switch between your open windows, you need to use Command+`, which messes with your muscle memory.
Witch puts things right. This app does not just bring back the Windows method of app switching, but gives you a ton of extra options, down to the finest detail. You can use custom shortcuts to switch between apps, windows, and tabs, change the layout of the app switcher on your screen, switch apps using a Spotlight-style search or menu bar button, and much more.
You can set the Quicklaunch Dock to show all your open applications, all your running windows, minimized windows, and even show system tray icons. You can also customize the position, size, style, color, and animation effects of the dock. For example, you can use a zoom effect like the Mac dock has, or you can make your icons glow when you hover your mouse over them.
Hi Michael! Thank you for your answer.But it's not so trivial as it seems.The "Edge Feedback" icon is not on the Application folder but it is shown on the launchpad anyway, so i can't remove it.
Apple's first major OS X release, known as Cheetah, was a radical change from the previous Mac OS 9, Apple's Classic Operating System. Announced at the 2000 Macworld Expo in San Francisco, Mac OS X 10.0 introduced the new Aqua User Interface, which showcased title bars with a brushed metal look, brightly colored buttons on windows and photo-realistic icons. OS X Cheetah also debuted the dock that still gives modern Macs their notable appearance. New apps were included as well, such as Mail, Address Book and TextEdit.
Apple introduced OS X Leopard at WWDC 2006, and it became a redefining moment for its software, since it was noted to be the "largest update of OS X." It featured a modernized look with a three-dimensional, reflective Dock, a semitransparent menu bar, larger drop shadows for active windows and new high-resolution icons.
OS X 10.5 included Stacks, a grouping feature that displays files in a "fan" or "grid" style in folders on the Dock; an updated Finder that incorporates the Cover Flow visual navigation interface first seen in iTunes, iPhone and iPod touch; Quick Look, which allows a "preview" of items by hitting the space bar; Spaces, a way to group application windows on more than one virtual desktop; Time Machine, an automatic backup utility that allows users to restore deleted files; and Boot Camp, Apple's software client to run Microsoft Windows natively on a Mac. With the release of the aluminum unibody MacBook and Macbook Air with multi-touch track pad, OS X Leopard also unofficially supported multi-touch gestures.
OS X El Capitan was announced at WWDC 2015. It enhanced the design and usability of OS X Yosemite with performance and security improvements. Features included Split View, which placed two full screen apps side by side; a streamlined Mission Control, which made it easier to see all open windows in one place; a smarter Spotlight that delivered results for weather, sports, stock, web, video and transit directions and can deliver information using natural language; a refreshed Maps app that included public transit information for some U.S. cities; Metal, a new graphics core technology that gave games and apps almost direct access to the Mac's graphics processor for better performance; in-app Multi-Touch gesture support; and system-wide performance improvements for further responsiveness and efficiency when using apps.
To find the Mac shortcuts that are already set up on your device, go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts. From there you can look through the different mac keyboard shortcuts that are set up for your keyboard and other places your Mac allows shortcuts, like the launchpad and dock, Mission Control, and Spotlight.
Whereas Mission Control helps you find your way through your windows, the Launchpad eliminates the need to open them. Launchpad brings iOS-like application management to your Mac. Instead of digging through folders to launch an application, you simply start Launchpad and all your installed apps are visible in one place. No digging required.
StepSeq by default works in combined mode. pressing the 4th scene button toggles between combined mode and multi note mode. Multinote mode works in similarly to the the previous step in launchpad85, while combined mode offers mode close to the way Push StepSeq behaves.
You can edit eight parameters of the selected device on the selected track at once. One parameter per column.You can navigate banks of parameters using scene buttons 2 and 3.depending on the type of parameter edited launchpad will display then in different ways. 2b1af7f3a8
