General

Is there a difference between the Mac App Store version and the non-MAS version?

Gibt es einen Unterschied zwischen der Mac App Store Version und der Website-Version?

Generally both versions have exactly the same features. Sometimes there are updates that fix an issue that only exists in one of the two versions, so the version number might be slightly different. The Mac App Store version of Rocket Typists requires an extension for some features. You can learn more about that here.

Allgemein, gibt es im Funktionsumfang keinen Unterschied zwischen den Versionen. Es kann Vorkommen, dass sich die Versionsnummern unterscheiden, wenn mit dem letzen Update Fehler behoben worden sind die nur in einer der Beiden Versionen existieren. Die Mac App Store Version von Rocket Typist benötigt für einige Funktionen eine Erweiterung. Sie können mehr darüber hier lernen.

How can I recover my lost license code?

Wie kann ich meinen verlorenen Lizenzschlüssel wiederherstellen?

If you buy an app outside of the Mac App Store, you will get a license code. Download the app from it's product page and enter your license code. If you cannot find the license code, please contact me via the support page. Make sure you include the email address that has been used to buy the license in the message. If you have bought the app on the Mac App Store you do not need a license code. You can download the latest version directly from the purchases section on the Mac App Store.

Wenn Sie eine App außerhalb des Mac App Stores erwerben, bekommen Sie einen Lizenzschlüssel. Laden Sie die App von der entsprechenden Produktseite und geben Sie Ihren Lizenzschlüssel ein. Sollten Sie Ihren Lizenzschlüssel verloren haben, kontaktieren Sie den Support unter Angabe der Email-Adresse, die Sie beim Kauf erworben haben. Wenn Sie die App im Mac App Store erworben haben, benötigen Sie keinen Lizenzschlüssel. Sie können die neuste Version im Mac App Store unter "Gekaufte Artikel" laden.

Why is the app not downloading from the Mac App Store?

Warum wird die App nicht vom Mac App Store heruntergeladen?

You have probably downloaded the trial version from the website before. Delete every copy of the app you can find and then download the latest version directly from the purchases section on the Mac App Store. If you still have difficulties installing the app from the Mac App Store, please contact the Apple support.

Sie haben vermutlich bereits die Trial-Version der App heruntergeladen. Löschen Sie jede Kopie der App auf Ihrem Mac und laden Sie die App dann aus dem Mac App Store. Sollten Sie dann noch Probleme bei der Installation aus dem Mac App Store haben, kontaktieren Sie bitte den Apple Support.

Network Radar

Why does Network Radar not display every information of a host?

Warum werden nicht alle Informationen zu einem Host angezeigt?

There might be one or several reasons for this:

If you perform a scan for devices outside the subnet of your Mac’s current network it is not possible to figure out the MAC address of these devices. Therefore information such as the vendor name are not available, too.

Certain network services are disabled or blocked within your network. Please contact your network administrator.

Some devices in your network or services of a device might be blocked by a firewall.

The device simply does not reveal certain information. I.e. there might be no NetBIOS name if SMB is not enabled on the device.

Why does Network Radar not find all hosts I expected?

Warum findet Network Radar nicht diejenigen Hosts, die ich erwarte?

Did you scan the correct IP range? Make sure that the devices you miss are turned on and connected to your network. Some devices such as smartphones often turn off their Wi-Fi in order to save energy if they are not being used. In most cases refreshing your scan helps.

Why does Network Radar list hosts I can not identify?

Warum werden Hosts angezeigt, die ich nicht erkenne?

In rare cases Network Radar might find a not existing device. This is due to network irregularities. If you refresh your scan and that device keeps showing up as an offline device you can delete that device. These devices usually don’t have a MAC-address.

What does it mean if a host's status is 'uncertain'?

Was bedeutet es wenn der Status eines Hosts "ungewiss" ist?

Sometimes a device has an uncertain status shown by a yellow dot in the devices list. This simply means that Network Radar could not ping the device, but it is still in the ARP-Cache. So it was connected to that device recently.

What does it mean if a host's status is 'unreachable'?

Was bedeutet es wenn der Status eines Hosts "unerreichbar" ist?

If the device's scan has been bound to a network and your Mac is not connected to that network, the device is unreachable. You won't be able to refresh the device's status. Also the device will be automatically excluded from monitoring.

Why has a MAC address been found, but no vendor name?

Warum wurde eine MAC-Adresse, aber kein Herstellername gefunden?

Network Radar looks up the vendor OUI (Organisationally Unique Identifier) of a MAC address in a local database. Devices that have MAC addresses, registered after the most recent release of Network Radar are not included in that database.

PDF Squeezer

Why was PDF Squeezer unable to reduce the file’s size?

Warum ist es PDF Squeezer unmöglich die Größe meiner Datei zu reduzieren?

This is probably the case if the application that created the document already reduced the quality in order to reduce the size of a PDF document containing many pages and pictures. This can also happen if your PDF document contains no or almost no images. Your file may also contain vector graphics that look like (bitmap-)images. Vector graphics cannot be compressed.

Like all other PDF compression tools PDF Squeezer does not reduce the size of PDF files that have already been compressed.

Why do images end up coming out color inverted in the compressed version?

Warum ist die Farbe einige Bilder in komprimierten Dateien invertiert?

Changing the color profile settings for the selected filter usually helps:

How can I open a PDF in PDF Squeezer from the print dialog?

Wie kann ich ein PDF in PDF Squeezer vom Druck-Dialog eines anderen Programms öffnen?

Due to Apple’s guidelines, PDF Squeezer cannot automatically install the PDF service that adds the Save PDF to PDF Squeezer to the print dialog. However you can use the PDF Print Service Creator app to for that.

How to enable the action plugin in Finder and Preview?

Wie wird die Freigabe-Erweiterung für den Finder und Vorschau aktiviert?

Open the System Preferences and open the Extensions preferences pane. Then click Share Menu and check PDF Squeezer in the list. The plugin requires macOS 10.10 or later.
