Frequently Asked Question

Getting Started
After I install the program to my Macintosh desktop, the alias start icon does not work. What should I do? You have two options. First, you can select "Fix Alias" and select the "American Literature" icon inside the "Lit_in_Context_11" folder you have just installed. This will fix the alias so that it launches the program. Alternately, you can dump the folder and the shortcut in the trash (important: empty the trash after you do this), and re-install the program into your applications folder.
Why do I get an error when I quit the program on my Mac 10.3.9? This a programming error, but it does not affect the usability of the program. You can still create and save slideshows and import images. If you would like to avoid this problem, you may need to upgrade your computer's operating system or check back later when a patch becomes available.
Why don't my search results find images that I know are in the program? The program only produces search results based on the unit selected in the dropdown. If you are in Unit 1 when you begin your search, you will see results from that unit. To find the images you have imported into the program, click on the "My Gallery" tab.
