The white typing bar that appear whenever you type something just slightly above the dash board ?
What are you talking about? Can you take a screenshot and post it?

What app are you using and trying to type in at the time that appears?
It appeared when I type randomly on desktop or when the finder is opened.
I don't know if this is relevant but I just installed a Wacom Tablet a day before, but the bar didn't appear till today. So I don't think there's any correlation between them.
And that bar seems to serve as a searching function.
Unless it's a Lion feature I'm unfamiliar with, I'd suspect some 3rd party app you may have installed.
That might be so. Then how would I look up recently installed apps ?
I'm a new mac user :x
It also looks kind of like some of the tools that show up to help with input in other languages and keyboards. Such as East Asian (CJK) languages and input methods.
I'd suspect the tablet though.
To see recently installed apps, go to:
> About This Mac > More Info > Software > ApplicationsThen click the "Last Modified" column heading once or twice until the arrow points down (most recent on top).
To see what's running, launch Activity Monitor and change "My Processes" at the top to "All Processes", then click on the Process Name column heading once or twice, so the arrow points up (alphabetical order). Then take a screen shot, scroll down to see the rest of the list, take another screen shot and post them.
It went from More Info to System specs
They changed it in Lion. Click on System Report:
Then click Software > Applications, as shown in the lower left corner, as shown here:
this is what it looks like
Edit: Ah, okay, system report....
Nope, nothing out of the ordinary
The only things I see that are suspects are the tablet drivers and the Vietnamese Unikey.
Can you disable one or both?
The tablet may went haywire if I disable its driver but I think I'll try to rest its settings
The Unikey has been there forever
The godforsaken thing is still there -_-.
I guess I've to cope with it
It was me that wanted to start using an iMac afterall
Anyway, this is off topic but if you could answer it'd be wonderful.

How'd you go about changing text's font ? In a quicker way where you'd type the first letter of the font you want or the name of it.
Because everytime I type in anything, it automatically turned to Abadi MT, and any excess letters ( say I typed in arial ) will appear on whatever I clicked on ( like font size )
It'd appear as 25 ptrial instead of 25 pt
I know this should be another thread, but seen y'all are here....
i would continue to try and figure out what it was. it could be a key logger of some sort sniffing for passwords.
This is what it does
You type in
and press enter or space
It kind of reminds me of a feature called Ink that came with my Wacom tablet (it's for recognising handwriting and turning it into text), maybe have a look in system preferences for it and see if it's turned on?
Is this off right ?
Well it' Ink causing it then, I'm not sure what it is sorry.
Its not a lion feature... It has to be 3rd party
If this has only appeared since installing your tablet then troubleshoot by uninstalling your Wacom tablet app, if it disappears you will know what it was.
It is ink. It's for handwriting recognition.
It wasn't the tablet app, lol, but the tablet itself.
Anyway, thank you.
You reminded me of the un-plug and re-plug method that solve everything :3
Edit: though, I don't know what's its deal is with the tablet, since you type in it...
Edit 2: But still, is there a way it could be turn off with the tablet attached... ?
