YES. Because this is a website, it is available for both Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. LiveText’s first browser recommendation for a Mac computer is Firefox. Safari is not recommended for use, though, since the editor does not function as well as when using Firefox.
It is always best to type and save as much as possible. This is best done by saving your work first as a document, and then copying/pasting it into LiveText. You never know if you are going to be knocked off the internet or have some other problem arise. So be sure to have documents saved on your computer, too. This means that you always have a backup: if your computer crashes you have your files in your LiveText account. There is no limit to the amount of files you add to your LiveText account. For highly formatted files such as your resume, it is recommended that you attach your resume into LiveText.

When you inserted your picture, you were given the option to choose a type of display size. If you want to change the display size, please follow these directions:
The "resolution" of the picture you are using may still be set too high. This means that you have more detail in your picture than needed. Resolution is set when you scanned or took the picture. On a scanner, you only need to set the resolution for 72 dots per inch (DPI). On a digital camera, set it for the smallest size, often 640x480. When you attach a graphic with the lower resolution, it should be a more appropriate size.
Please Note: You can only have one image per document section. Pictures that have a high resolution will show up in LiveText very LARGE. You will need to change the display size as explained in #8 above. If your image is still too large, you will need to reduce the resolution of the picture using a photo-editing program or website, such as http://www.picnik.com If you use Picnik, upload the picture file first, then “Save and Share”, give the file a new name (so it doesn’t replace your original), then lower the “JPG compression quality” by dragging the bar to the left. Then click "Save" and follow the directions above for inserting a picture.

As with any website, yes, you can. Files you download are potentially virus infected. Therefore, it is your responsibility to have a virus protection program installed on your computer and keep your virus “definitions” up-to-date. Generally, LiveText cannot create a virus, only proliferate an existing one.
Yes. Sometimes it is easier to prove that you are keeping up with your portfolio development by printing the page you would like your instructor to see. While in your portfolio, click on the “Print” tab. Your document will appear. If you wish to print the entire document, click on print in the upper right hand corner. If you wish to only print a portion of your portfolio, click on the titles of pages or sections to prevent them from printing and then click on print in the upper right hand corner.
Of course, if your instructor would like to review your portfolio online, you will need to properly send/submit it for review to that instructor. Steps for sending/submitting your portfolio are available here on the Beginning Steps for Your Electronic Portfolio using LiveText.
Your LiveText files are private unless you send/submit or share them with others. To maintain this privacy and protect your account information:
