Re: Having Trouble Finding IDLE on a Mac
On a Mac, the new file option in IDLE is File->New Window. Also, make sure you are choosing IDLE in the MacPython 2.5 folder of your applications. It sounds like you are clicking on Python Launcher, which is the wrong program for what you're trying to do.

Hope this helps,
Carter

Re: Having Trouble Finding IDLE on a Mac
Carter,

Thanks for your speedy response! Unfortunately, I won't be able to try it out as my MacBook is currently defunct. I'll keep you posted.
