OK, I just searched every thread in this forum and couldn't find anything to answer my question..

Someone sent me some recipes via cmail that need to be posted on a thread in one of my forums. Is there any way for me to move them from cmail to the correct thread? I tried copy & paste and that doesn't seem to work in Cmail, unless I'm now also c&p impaired on both the Mac & the PC. Confused Thanks for anyone's help. Smiling

Copying and pasting from cmail to a thread works fine for me.
Highlight the text, CRTL C and the CRTL V in the thread.

Connie, Thanks a lot. You helped me figure out what I was doing wrong. I was pressing CNTRL C before I highlighted the text!!! Thumbs up

LOL You'd think that I never C & P'd before. Hilarious! I'd been having so much trouble trying to figure out how to do it on my new Mac, that it was beginning to effect my ability to do it on the PC. Sheeesh!

We all get confused, especially me. Sometimes I think I have just plain lost my mind.

LOL, I do a lot of both, wandering and being lost and sometimes I do them at the same time.

I heard it years ago from a nursing home director. He explained that it referred to those who had lost all mental orientation, but we still physically fine. This was before the discovery & naming of Altzheimers.

Stormy - if your new to Mac, maybe I can help you out. I've been a mac user for years and years.

Up in your menu bar, there is an item "Help" - it change depending on what program your in. For instance, I am using Safari to access Cubits. So, when I go to "Help" the top option is "Safari Help" but, if you click on your desktop, so that in the upper left of your screen next to the black apple it says "Finder" instead of the name of the program your in, then go to "Help" it changes to "Mac Help".... click on that. The first section in Help is "Learn the basics about your Mac" - there is a lot of great info in this section.

Then - in that same Help window... up in the upper right, there is the small word "Index" If you click on that, it gives you an alphabet to choose from to look up what you are trying to find out about.

Another hint if you can't figure out something is just type in Google "how to copy and paste Text on the Mac" and most of the time you will get an answer.

Here is a page you may want to bookmark. It's Apples list of what the symbols in the menu mean, and all the keyboard shortcuts
http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1343

And, last, this company, Lynda.com has great tutorials online. For $25 you can take all the classes you want for a month.
http://www.lynda.com/
if you go there, click on the drop down menu titled "vendor" and select Apple. It will give you a list of all the classes on using the Mac, as well as classes on all the Apple software, such as Safari, iPhoto etc. If you scroll down to the heading Mac OS - you will see several classes. Some of their classes are one or two hours - I have taken some on Photoshop that were 20 hours. But, they are easy to follow, well done. There is one class on switching from Windows to Mac that might be a great start. Also, depending on your software version, I will assume it is Snow Leopard, I'd take
http://www.lynda.com/home/DisplayCourse.aspx?lpk2=365
You can start a class, say it's 7 hours, watch 20 minutes, stop it, come back later, start again - rewind to see parts again etc. Very user friendly.

Will take a little bit to complete them - but well worth the money to learn easy, fast ways to get the most from your Mac. If you don't want to do that, I would recommend getting one of the Dummies books, such as Snow Leopard for Dummies. I've been using Macs for a LONG time, and when they do a major update, I get one of the dummies books... don't be put off by the name.

Thank you very much Jules. You've given me a lot of help. I got lost inside of exploring some of these things for a few hours already. Thank you so much for your time & helpfulness. Smiling
