Lin,

Quoting: I don't have an alt key, just the shift key, nothing seems to work. I think it has something to do with it being a Macintosh.


On a MacIntosh the Alt key is on the option key which is next to the Apple key. Maybe that will work!
You just gave me an excuse to test the quote feature. It took me forever to figure it out yet it's so simple. So hopefully your efforts will prove to be simple too (once it's figured out!!) Good Luck

Now you've got me trying the smiley! But on some other threads it says it doesn't work on a laptop which I am using (I don't have a number pad on the side). So if you are using a laptop that might be the problem!

The Smiley is something Dave set up for us to use here on DG. It works anywhere here on this site, in any forum/thread. It shouldn't make a difference if you are using a desktop computer or laptop. I'm on my laptop now and the smiley works fine. :-)

I still can't figure out why I can't do all the other cute characters using the alt key. I've tried with both the desktop machine (without using the side number pad) as well as the laptop and still no luck!

I have a PC,not Mac,but if you put on the num lock key,and hold down whatever represents alt on a Mac,it is alt13 and alt14.Just put the numbers in on the number key pad,not the numbers on the top of the keyboard,and release after each number.

Hey Nan. We are a Mac household here. My DH detests pc's and has had Mac's since the very first one they made. I used my sister's pc briefly a couple of times when I was visiting her ... did not like it, possibly because I am so used to Mac's. Everyone I've ever known who uses Mac's say they are much more user friendly. Many years ago when I worked I was used to windows systems but since all we have in our house are Mac's now Iove them, both the desktop and my laptop.

I'm sure my DH will have some pro's and con's I can share with you when he gets home. He knows all the in's and outs of mac's. I've heard many say that Mac's are too expensive but I've heard many say they are worth it, that they don't have as many problems as PC's. We have a Mac desktop, we each have our own Mac laptop's and he has a Mac desktop at work, as well as a PC the University supplied him.
