I am trying to figure out how to determine if a file has been opened by a revolution standalone so that another user running the standalone on a networked Mac won't be able to open it and edit it. The files I am using are xml files. I have tried to use the lsof file command using the terminal but it...

If there is just the one type in the command it will not show anything in the file dialog. if I have the two types then there is a pull down menu called 'Enable:' with the two options, in this case 'Description' and 'All files' Thanks to both of you for your help on this.

Thanks for the quick reply. One further question about the type values. The first value you put is 'Description'. What is this used for and what should you put here. I did not see the word 'Description' anywhere in the file dialog. Is this text that I use to describe the type of file or is it a pred...

The 'always buffer' was already false. I tried turning that on just to see what would happen and the movie would not even play.

Thanks Mark I can use the detailed folders command to find out the owner's, group and others access permissions are but on Mac OS X I can't find out who the owner is so I can't determine what the current user's access permissions are in relation to that folder. I took another approach and used an ap...

Player step buttons change to slider with control key down

When a quicktime player is in a web page you can click on the step buttons while holding the control button on the Mac (or alt key on windows) to get a slider that will allow you to move back and forth in the movie. I can't get the player object to do this in revolution. This also worked in Hypercar...
