You are unable to extract code from the controller to be saved. Once it's on the controller, it cannot come off of it.

You will need to pull the INO files off of the old laptop and then migrate over to the new one or re-create your INO file.

You could have the Preference set to "Use external editor". If that's set, then the sketch screen is grayed out and you cannot type in it.

You don't have the correct files in the proper place.
Make sure to install the Reef Angel Installer from the download page.
Is it a windows machine?
What do you have inside /Users/palmer/Documents/Arduino?

Did you move the Arduino folder to your Documents folder?
Please check the manual for instructions on how to install it on the Mac.
