In the first half of the meeting, David Moon talked us through some basic settings in iOS and also how they worked in MacOS.
He showed how to get rid of unwanted previous recipients that came up when entering email addresses. How we need to keep details up to date in Contacts, such as if we change addresses.

David P showed us a very neat way to create coloured/patterned paper in Pages. Zooming out to see the whole page, David filled it with a rectangular shape. He then demonstrated the various fill options available in Pages ending with a pleasant gradient fill, and pointed out that images can also be included. Reducing the opacity to avoid a dominant paper colour, he went to the drop down menu ‘Arrange > Section Masters… Read more…

John Cadd travelled to Beaminster this evening to give a two-part presentation - the first part was on some of the more basic of the abilities of Lightroom, which was simply presented in a very understandable manner. The second was a presentation of some of his more recent photographs, of a Tall Ships event which went across the Atlantic to Canada. These were interesting, well shot and there were many terrific shots, sufficient for most… Read more…

This evening’s main event was a presentation by Tony on Blocs, an application for building responsive web sites. A responsive site is one that adapts automatically to different screen sizes, avoiding the need to produce a separate ‘mobile’ version of your site. With 52% of web traffic nowadays reputedly going to phones, this is becoming an increasingly important consideration.

Tony went on to show how, to design a responsive… Read more…

April's meeting revolved around photographs so had a very broad appeal. Derek introduced us to a program he's used for many years - JAlbum. He showed us how photos could be dragged in and then easily moved around until you have them in the order you want for creating a slideshow. Whilst you can play the slideshow directly from JAlbum, a really nice feature is its ability to export it as a series of HTML files… Read more…

Mick dealt with user confusion over passwords, based on the frustrating experience of helping people in trouble with their computers. He ran through the basic principles of Apple ID password use, referring to his own term “password pairs” meaning the username (often the user’s email address) and password. The Mac User/Admin password is created when setting up the Mac; it should never be forgotten and (if not highly memorable) should… Read more…

Michael gave the first of a small series on what are variously known as Settings (in iOS) or System Preferences (on the Mac). He dealt with the first seven or eight as they show when brought up on iPad or iPhone, gave a brief description of what each setting does, and what options may be available, only got lost once, when he couldn’t get out of a setting which showed the area to… Read more…

Euan began with a short history of developments and advances in desktop publishing from his first encounters with PageMaker, through the introduction of full digital setting and layout in about 1986, to the more recently added features all the way to the current version of QX.

Significant recent developments have been driven by the increasingly varied platforms that the final product (ie the document) may be viewed on. As well as PDF files… Read more…
