Hi Big black shark,
Thanks for the clue.
I did so and do so till date. So you mean to say we have to drag one line by one for 30 or 40 rows. Where as in EXcel we can select 50 or 60 rows and click format we will get the option of row height and we can give the number 20 25 according to that all rows are extended and one click.Where as it may not be possible in iworks.

Of course that too can be done, my solution was based on the assumption that you want to just change the height of one row, in case you want to select the whole table of 40 rows, you can make your selection and in the inspector, click the table tab and select height for rows, it will alter all at one go. Do give it a shot its quick and simple.

Latest addition with latest edition.

Last month I bought my first mac. Its a 13.3 incher Pro running on i5, 4 gb ram and 500 gigs.

I have also bought a Speck see-thru cover, to save it from scratches and also has a keyboard cover to protect from dust.

Thank you Big; It really works and you helped me saving my time. With the inspector we can do lot of changes. Hope this thread will help solving many things. To day I could copy all my old contacts into my Iphone.

Its good. Does the job well. None of the ports are blocked not even the vents so the bottom doesn't get hot.

You got a transparent one? Or is that a camera trick?

I've been reading a few reviews that the speck is flimsy and cracks easy. I know you've hardly used it, but what is your experience so far?

Yes it transparent. I didn't get the opaque one because I wanted that illuminated apple logo to be seen.
I don't think they are flimsy. And don't appear that they'll give away just by daily use. I haven't tried throwing them

I would recommend it unless you cannot see your mac in any other color except silver. Don't go for transparent (colorless), it will looks out right cheap in a week's time. Red looks more Dell-ish. Green and Blue are the colors I liked. I prefer blue over green.

This picture might give you clear picture

Thanks man. Just ordered the black. Somehow I think you got an older version of the speck. I got the speck see through satin. Its got a special satin feel on the top which gives you a better grip on the laptop. This is what I ordered:

Speck Products | SeeThru SATIN for MacBook Air

I got the black one. Dont let the image fool you - the apple logo illuminates with a very faint ghostly glow.

Mine is the latest too. I use the '11 Macbook Pro and I had ordered See-thru and you have ordered Satin. I saw couple of satins but they gave more of Dell-ish look hence ordered See-Thru. Plus I got the See-Thru for $26 whereas all satins were $50.

This is what I got See-Thru

Its worth.

Ah...I just wanted the satin finish. Supposedly feels better to hold.

However, maybe since you got something this cheap, you should augment with this: Apple MacBook Air 13 Armor Carbon Fiber protectors by BodyGuardz

Now I wish I had done the same. This carbon fiber thing looks so frickin cool.

Ok.I ran into a very strange problem.

My hard drive, formatted in FAT 32 to run on both Windows and Mac. I plugged in as usual into my mac and to my surprise, all the files are now grey and are .lnk file extensions. I don't know what happened, how it happened. Has someone else faced this problem? Whats the way out? It has data which has no back up hence everything is important to me.

I used to plugin the HD in my TV to watch movies.

I can understand that we can use MS office in MAC Machines. But I am not sure whether we have some Windows O S for MAc. If so is that windows OS is specially made for MAC like office or the same windows 7 can be installed in MAC. Some one can throw some light on it.
