A student named Gerald Smith wrote me with a question about the Apple Mac program Garageband. He wrote:
“I have been having trouble with making a podcast.Everything seems to be alright but the bar with the start record button on it does not appear.I would appreciate it if you could tell me what I am not doing right or what I am doing wrong.GS”
Hi Gerald, I took a look at Garageband and can’t see any way to hide that toolbar — often these things are located in the View menu, but not in this case as far as I can see.
I’m not sure what version of Garageband and what version of Mac OS X you’re running, but I wonder if maybe you’re using an older version of Garageband and haven’t updated it to keep it “even” with the version of Mac OS X you’re running (this sometimes causes bugs to appear, and this could be a bug).
