Not only was the weather unkind for our last meeting, but the gods also appeared to be working against us in another direction!

There was a small attendance, which is not surprising, given the rain. But when Michael tried to make his presentation, while it showed up as designed on Robin’s MacBook Pro, all that could be seen on the screen was a black square with a small white square in… Read more…

We started off with a Q&A we were told us of a scam attempt received, and a question on how to connect a USB flash drive to an iPad also a question regarding creating a web site.

A short description of some items that are used in Pages, changing from word-processing to page layout mode, using headers and footers putting a graphic… Read more…

After a battle with a Mac and projector that were not on speaking terms, John Hooper got off to a late start in showing us how keyboard shortcuts, in lieu of using the mouse for everything, can improve the efficiency of common tasks on the Mac and now iPad too. We discovered that most of us use few shortcuts beyond cut and paste.
John distributed a comprehensive reference sheet of shortcuts and highlighted their… Read more…

There were eleven members at this meeting.

John demonstrated some of the features just released in iOS 9.
There were three main changes, and he used a downloaded You Tube video to demonstrate these as they were not designed to run on his version of iPad.
The three features, namely Picture in Picture, Slideover and Split Screen Multitasking are likely to be more beneficial on the soon-to-be released iPad… Read more…

Hopefully it was not the subject that kept people away, since spreadsheets
aren't everybody's cup of tea. Whatever the cause, there was a very small
gathering to hear Michael's presentation on the basics of Numbers. This was
designed to show newcomers what Numbers is about, what is available to get
started and how to set up a very simple spreadsheet, for example on the
lines of a bank statement. Some… Read more…

A fairly small group gathered after the Summer break and we were pleased to welcome two prospective members, Steve & Mary.

Tony then introduced the main item of the evening, an introduction to the dark art of HTML by John Ansell.

HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) was invented by Tim Berners-Lee while working at CERN in the late 1980s. He had worked locally for a while in the 70s, including at Plessey… Read more…

14 people attended this meeting, including four guests.

Mick gave us quite a comprehensive talk about how to get started using the Pages app for the iPad. He demonstrated many of the features by using a previously saved letter heading template.
Apparently you can do all the text and format adjustments the same as on the Mac version once you know where everything is. He also showed us how to insert a… Read more…

Mick introduced us to Accountz, a simple user-friendly accounting program. Accountz comes in two forms: Personal and Business. Mick demonstrated the Personal version which offers a better and easier way of tracking one’s accounts compared to messing about with spreadsheets. Mick’s demonstration included Money Accounts (i.e. Bank Accounts and Credit Cards showing the state of one’s financial balances) and Income and Expenditure accounts (showing where the money… Read more…
