John Hooper was in the chair for this meeting and took us through his efforts to go paperless - at least keeping or using less paper if not eliminating it completely. His method is to scan documents using the Notes app on his phone and then transfer them to his Mac into a filing system that makes it easy to find them. His did a live demonstration of the scanning process pointing out how the app… Read more…

Another polished presentation by Tony looking this time at colour. He looked in detail at the Colour Picker that appears in most apps when you're choosing a colour and in detail at the tabs along the top giving different ways of selecting one. New to several of the audience were the small pane at the bottom of the picker, visible in all tabs, where you can store frequently used colours for consistency and the palette… Read more…

Two weeks after the WWDC, we had our biggest audience yet, to listen to Euan's carefully prepared synopsis. Looking briefly at the changes to the upcoming iOS 14 snd Mac OS Big Sur (likely to be known as Mac OS 11 rather than 10.16). With a selection of videos, we were shown the exciting future of Macs running on Apple's own ARM chips, possibly appearing in a Mac by the end of the year… Read more…

The point of Tony’s presentation was to get us all producing attractive documents, be they Pages documents or Keynote slides. We first looked at a few of the templates that Apple provides - all very well designed and a good place to start. Tony then moved on to his self designed layout and took us through the reasoning behind the size and positioning of each element. He was working on principles that Robin Williams… Read more…

Stuart took great pains to walk us through some fairly technical stuff, explaining how all our devices, Mac, iPads & iPhones are based on the same kernel called Darwin. This was launched with OS X in 2001. Macs had worked by developing the Classic systems up to OS 9 but to progress further, Apple needed to either buy in an OS (which they considered) or start with a clean sheet of paper. At launch, OS… Read more…

Probably the most hilarious presentation we've ever had! Let me explain. John Ansell has created a web site for his grandchildren to draw on, working together from wherever they are in the world. He talked us through the thought processes and how he went about it but then allowed the AUGWessex "grandchildren" to have a go and that's where it descended into hilarious chaos!

One or two were able to display… Read more…

Tony Still gave the Keynote - a pretty comprehensive description of how to produce greetings cards using Pages. (A typically professional looking Keynote - perhaps we could persuade Tony to do one on graphic design!) He covered how different paper folds would require graphics/text in different areas of your A4 sheet, some being upside-down, different fonts and where to get graphics if you don't want to use your own photo, chiefly those inbuilt in Pages… Read more…

David Parnell bravely admitted to falling for a scam. He talked us through how an issue with updating a GPS device led him to looking online for answers. The site he found included the name of the manufacturer so looked genuine but was anything but. His "helper" offered to investigate why the update wasn't working by checking David's machine. Of course, many genuine help desks will also take over your screen so suspicions… Read more…

In our second online offering, about 25 people heard David Moon take us through Apple's Continuity. Whilst most of us will have used the odd part of what's available, there's far more than some of us realised. That meant that there was a lot to cover which David did in his usual, efficient manor making it much clearer. However, if it was too much to take in, there's a small re-run this coming Tuesday… Read more…

Today saw the first of our online meetings, our response to not being able to meet in person. This was very much a trial for us to get used to the processes. Mick gave us a brief run through of Cloud Computing using Keynote Live whilst members were able to ask questions and have a general Q&A session afterwards using FaceTime. The Keynote worked perfectly but there were a few hiccups with the… Read more…
