When performing tasks such as saving or opening files on a Windows PC, a dialog box will open with a variety of options for completing the task. Dialog boxes are separate entities that float on screen. On a Mac, they look and behave in a similar fashion, but are called sheets, and they remain attached to the application window. In this movie you will know how to work with sheets for saving, choosing options, and performing Save As commands.
- [Voiceover] When you're working with…programs in a Windows environment,…and it's time to save up a file or open up a file,…typically you're going to see a dialog box of some kind.…It's a little floating window that can move around.…It will have buttons for saving or opening,…as well as maybe some other options.…Well here on a Mac, they're very similar,…but again, somewhat different and worth taking a look at.…So we're going to do it with TextEdit,…and as you can see I've closed up…everything from the previous movie.…No more calendar, calculator, even closed up…TextEdit and those documents we started…if you were following along.…
Once you have everything closed up,…we're going to relaunch TextEdit,…by going up to Spotlight in the top right-hand corner,…give it a click, and start to type in TextEdit.…You can see I don't need to type in the whole thing.…The top hit is TextEdit, double-clicking from…here launches the application.…It's running across the top.…I have this window, which looks a lot like Finder…doesn't it, with the toolbar across the top?…
