The non appearance of a projector & screen was quickly got over when Mick produced his projector & Stan popped home to get his screen. Big thank you to both for rescuing things!

A smaller than usual number of members 11, (I blame England's World Cup game! ) came along to our July meeting to hear Mick give a presentation on the basics of filling system for macOS and the new files app in… Read more…

For our June meeting we made a movie, a Stop-Motion Movie.

Everyone took part by moving our star “Claris the Crocadile (a large cuddly toy)”

Claris was gradually moved around the tables while a photograph was taken after each move, about 25 photos to create the action.

During the break the camera photos were be downloaded to Photos and made into a slideshow, then save as… Read more…

This meeting started in alfresco style as a group of 12 assembled in the sunshine outside of ‘All Fired Up’, a handwritten notice on the door assuring us that someone was ‘on her way’. For some of us, the assumption that this meant she was headed our way on this particular day at around this time seemed rather optimistic but, happily, it turned out to be well founded.

Furniture… Read more…

The Finder is the heart of the Mac system and Mick took us through Finder Preferences. He ran through the default files under any user and explained that the Application folder here is normally empty as any app there would be accessible only by… Read more…

9 people attended the Fareham meeting on 9th June at the New Venue of Portchester Parish Hall.

There was a bit of confusion initially because a group of Ladies were having a meeting in the room we were booked in, but the larger hall was empty so we used that instead. There ensued about 10 minutes of discovering where the electrics and controls were, the most important one being the electrically driven blinds for… Read more…

Although the subject of this evening’s meeting was not a very glamorous one, it was designed to get people to take a closer look at System Preferences on their macs. This is what Michael did, going through each of the 8 preferences on the top row of the System Preferences pane. Some, like the ones for the Dock, Mission Control, and Spotlight revealed useful ways of getting things the way you want… Read more…

Some people have trouble with passwords, myself included, what is a user name? what’s an admin password? why is your Apple ID so important?

So we asked Mick to explain things.

He first explained the use of passwords after helping some people having trouble out theirs.

He then explained the principles of Apple ID and password usually “password pairs” that is your username most likely… Read more…

14 members gathered at ‘All Fired Up’ to hear John Ansell talk about Safari, and what actually happens when you open a web page - rather more than you might have thought!

Having explained the various component parts of a web address or URL, John went on to describe what happens when you hit return. In response to the request from your browser, the website replies with an HTML file for the… Read more…

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…
