Mac OSX and sound files-Thanks MM

 

For those of you like me that use a Mac you may have trouble download sound files from POI Factory’s sound library. With help from Motorcycle Mama my problem is solved. On a Mac do the following:
1.Go to the POI factory Sound Library
2. Choose a sound and click on it.
3.Hold down the Ctrl. key and click on the sound file of your choice.
Thanks Motorcycle Mama you are always a big help!!

I'm glad that it worked for you... I'm a little embarrassed to say that I struggled with a solution until I asked a PC user for help smile)

There are few other ways to

There are few other ways to save them:

1. Click on the sound file. It it will open in a new browser window and the sound will play. Using the save feature ( the upside down triangle at the right end of the control bar) from the Quicktime player to save the file.

2. If you have a 2 button mouse. Right click the sound file and you'll get a contextual menu, from the menu pick "download linked file". It's same as using control click with a one button mouse.

Mac OSX and sound files

You are correct and I use a PC mouse with my Mac and therefore I use the right click for this task. I didn't mention it because I think mac users mostly use a Mac mouse. Also I think that if you want to save the file after you have opened it to a new window you must have QuickTime Pro. I think the easiest way is to
1.Go to the POI factory Sound Library
2. Choose a sound and click on it.
3.Hold down the Ctrl. key and click on the sound file of your choice or right click it if you have a mouse with a right click.
That’s just my option and I know that there are many ways to achieve the same thing. Thanks for the input.

All currently shipping Macs

All currently shipping Macs (well ok, not the mini or laptops) have mighty mice in the box, these mice can do right click if you turn it on in the system prefs.

Mac OS X supports any USB Scroll wheel mouse(even the Microsoft $14 one) and all three buttons (Right, Left and Center Wheel) click will work right out of the box without any added drivers. MIce with more than 3 buttons will need added drivers like (USB overdrive).
