The April 1st meeting at Beaminster was, by the standards of the group, quite small with 15 people attending. We were given another of Mick Burrell’s crystal clear presentations, showing us how to set up both iCloud and Dropbox on Macs and mobile devices and then how to synchronise or swap files between any of our machines. Saving files in these locations allows them to be accessed not only by their owner, but… Read more…

Tony (Still) gave us a master class on page layout. Unsurprisingly, he used Pages! He told us he was familiar with the 4.3 version and thought it very good, but at Alan’s behest he had used the current and recent 5.1 version for this talk. This is very different from 4.3 and lacks some its useful facilities (eg. Roman numerals) that could be critical to a particular project; he hoped… Read more…

Sixteen members were present for the February meeting, swelled by a welcome group of Dorchester members.

The star of the show was undoubtedly Alex from Solutions, who took us through the Apple TV device from ‘the ground up’.
