Yellow boxes?

I'm about to post an instructable about applique with some close up (but not blurry) photos that will really benefit from some yellow boxes for explantations of what I am showing, but for some reason I am not able to put yellow boxes in - is is because I have a Mac? When I tried to do this for my last instructable I was not able to. Is there a trick to it other than the instructions which I did follow. Thank you. PS I don't have a mouse with a right and left buttons (as refered to by Lemonie in his excellent answer to this very same question by some one else

This is a bug with I'bles under Safari, as I've just confirmed. If you use any mouse-button it just drags the image Mac-style as though you want to save it to your desktop. Images with pre-existing notes (yellow boxes) show those and they behave normally. But you cannot create new notes uisng Safari. A number of I'bles features are designed around the performance capabilities of the (free) Firefox browser. Until Staff can figure out how to fix this problem, you may want to consider installing Firefox on your Mac and using it instead of Safari.

  • What browser are you using? I have noticed occasional glitches with some of I'bles stuff in Safari.
  • Do you have JavaScript enabled? Many of I'bles dynamical features rely on JS.

Safari. What are dynamical features? Is "dynamical" a real word or something you made up? I will check on the JS. In the mean time I have moved each photo into photoshop and written on them there. I wish I had the yellow box option though.
Dynamical is a real word -- I borrowed it from physics to apply to this situation. I'm using it to refer to something that "appears and disappears" depending on your actions, rather than something that is written into the Web page itself.

Oh Thank you - I like that word and now it makes sense (to me). I gave you the best answer award. Why don't you go pro?

I didn't fully approve of the original division of pre-existing features (which has since been reconsidered). We're also having some financial issues such that any sort of "discretionary" spending (regardless of amount) is being postponed. Soon, I hope.

Java script is indeed enabled, I will try un enabling it to see if that helps but it doesn't look like it would according to your reply.

When I looked for JS I found it in my Photoshop CS3 - is that it? How do I tell if it is enabled. How come no one else has this problem?
JavaScript in this case is something that is handled by your Web browser, not Photoshop. In Safari, go to Preferences...Security. Look for the checkbox related to JavaScript (separate from Java).
