Macintosh

How do I run the EasyStitch software on my Macintosh computer?
(For Flip-Pal Software 1.14 users) When you plug our memory card into a Mac, after a short delay it will appear on the desktop as an icon called No Name. Double-click to open it and view the files inside. Open the Mac folder and you will see the EasyStitch program icon, the User’s Guide and a link to our web site. Double-click on EasyStitch to run the program. (You may ignore all the other files as they are only for Windows machines.)

The Flip-Pal documents on the SD card don’t display properly and appear to be corrupted.
Your machine is probably using the built in “Preview” program to view the PDF (Adobe Acrobat) files the documents are created in. Unfortunately, although PDF files are a global standard, Preview may have issues displaying them. The best option is to download Acrobat Reader for the Mac or Windows from the Adobe web site and set it as the default viewer for all PDF files.

When I insert the SD card, iPhoto launches and imports the scans, but I cannot find them later.
If iPhoto launches when you plug the SD card into your computer, we recommend you close iPhoto so it does not interfere with Flip-Pal Toolbox 2 operations. If you want to use the import feature of iPhoto, you should select the appropriate option during import so that the images are not erased from the SD card. Flip-Pal Toolbox 2 may not be able to stitch images properly if they have been imported or opened with iPhoto.

How do I change the default photo viewing program from iPhoto to Preview or Image Device?
Go to your Applications folder and open a program called Image Capture. Open Preferences from the Image Capture menu in the menu bar. You’ll see a dialog where you can change what happens when you plug in a scanner or camera.

Can I select multiple scans or other files all at once with my Mac?
You can click and select more than one scan by clicking each one sequentially. You can also select a contiguous group of files just like on a PC, by selecting the first of a series, holding the Shift key down, then clicking on the last scan you want to select from the group. They will now all be highlighted and you can drag and drop them to the new location.
(For Flip-Pal Software 1.14 users only) If you only have a single button mouse, you may accomplish the same operation by holding down the Control key first, then clicking the mouse button.
