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…

Spreadsheets
Mick first of all talked us through some or the terminology used for spreadsheets and explained that Apple's Numbers treats a spreadsheet as a huge piece of paper which can have multiple tables on, each with as many rows and columns as you wish. He then said that spreadsheets can be used as a simple database, holding text as well as numbers and equations. But the main part of the presentation… Read more…

David Moon ran through Markup as it is used in Notes, Mail on IOS and attachments in Mail on Mac OS, but also how, with the latest systems, to link from Mac to IOS device to create a drawing. Preview has a greater range of options in Markup which David suggested should be covered on a separate occasion. Whilst using Markup on Photos on the Mac, David showed how to call an IOS device to… Read more…

The evening took the form of the second part of Looking at Spreadsheets and Numbers in particular. First we examined the way the exercise, set members last month, had been done. David P tried to balance his fondness for spreadsheets by issuing warnings on the dangers - JP Morgan Chase is reported to have lost more than six billion dollars relying on a spreadsheet! However, spreadsheets have been seminal in the development of personal computing and… Read more…

With two projectors working, one showing MacBook the other showing iPad, it was hoped to follow the successful format used at our other venues however there were not enough members present to do the programme so Euan explained a selection of the features of Affinity Designer with a comprehensive look at what the application has to offer. There is quite a lot to learn with this interesting session that ended with a few tutorial movies… Read more…

February in Bournemouth brought another way to make Mac users' lives easier. Andrew K presented Keyboard Maestro, a long-standing Mac application that promises "if you can perform it manually, Keyboard Maestro can almost certainly automate it for you".

Keyboard Maestro (KM) lets the user build "macros" in a graphical way, similar to Apple's Automator and Shortcuts, but provides many more "triggers" (ways, or things happening, to… Read more…

Mick talked about the Finder on the Mac and how iCloud Drive offers filing not dissimilar to IOS. He started by running through the Finder Preferences including Finder new window settings and various options that can be switched on and off in the side bar. He showed how other folders, files and documents, can be added or removed from the sidebar. You can move/drag a file within a drive, but when you move/drag… Read more…

Thanks to Roy we were able to have an emergency change of venue and meet in the Yarn Barton Centre. David P addressed the basics of using Numbers and illustrated how spreadsheets could be used for more than just manipulating numbers. Some sheets had not a single number on them. Members used their own devices to enter basic data and autofill columns and rows. The exercise highlighted the difference in commands (not functionality) between the… Read more…
