    I'm trying to use an application, Poser 9, and it keeps crashing with memory errors. It always crashes when it hits approximately 2GB of memory. I contacted their tech support, and they told me to adjust the amount of memory allowed for the specific application. Is this possible in Lion? They told me to right click on the application, go to Get Info, and adjust it in there. When I go to the info screen, I don't see anything about memory. Is this hidden somewhere else in Lion? :confused:

    No, they suggested an OS 9 solution for an OS X problem.

    Looks like Poser 9 has memory issues on some Macs. You might find better support on a Mac animation related board.

    No, it's not. Mac OS X manages memory automatically, without user interference. It sounds like the problem lies with your particular app.
    Launch Activity Monitor and change "My Processes" at the top to "All Processes". You can then click on the column headings to sort by CPU or memory usage, etc. Click on the System Memory tab at the bottom to see overall memory usage.
