    Keyboard Short cuts

    Is there any limit to the length, or to the structure, of the Phrase one can use? I am trying to,use it as a group email send address.

    Keyboard Short cuts

    You can make a short cut under Keyboard in System Preferences by putting a short cut word with a Phrase into the Keyboard entries. But I cannot discover how to erase a short cut and its associated phrase. you can erase the short cut, but the phrase seems to be immovable. Any ideas, anyone? NM

    Can I once again recommend PDFpen which allows you to collate several pdf files, edit them, add notes, remarks, figures, text etc. it is extremely easy to use. I have used it on the iPad and the iMac for a long time and don't feel a need for anything else..

    Pages and Notes Dictionary

    Sorry I have twice made a mistake in my post When you want to enter a new word into the dictionary, put it into the New Shortcut, and put nothing into Phrase. Normally a shortcut expands into the phrase, but if the phrase is empty, it just accepts the word as a shortcut and leaves it alone...

    Pages and Notes Dictionary

    I have now found how to add new words to the dictionary, thanks to a post in "iPad Academy". You go to Settings, and then to ,General, , and then to Keyboard. Then use the Add New Entry to the dictionary. Enter the word into the Phrase column, but do not add any definition. From now on...

    Numbers Question - Column formula

    Try looking at the excellent book by Gary Rosenzweig, "My iPad. 4th edition". 2012, by Pearson Educational, and quepublishing.com, pages 248-250. I think you will find the answer, which includes using Footers and New Form. . He has explicitly a bright red warning about how to make a function...

    Losing data from cloud and Notes in iPad2 and iPad3

    Suppose I have an iPad2 and an iPad3. I write notes in Notes on the iPad2. I assume they have gone to the cloud. I open iPad3 and access the Notes on the cloud and synch them onto the iPad3. Since I no longer want them on the iPad2 I delete them on the iPad2. What happens is they are...

    Seeing the screen with polarized sunglasses

    For decades there has been a problem with viewing glass screens of all kinds due to reflections and glare. This was true of early TVs, CRTs, and so on. Since any light reflected off a non-metallic surface is at least partly polarised, one idea adopted early - I mean in the 1950s - was to view...

    Ipad -Important note deleted accidentally.. need urgent help to recover

    This reminds me of a true story from The early days of graphical interfaces. There was a computer that could be in two modes, EDIT or RUN. Unfortunately there was no indication of which mode you were in. If you were in RUN and you typed EDIT , you entered EDIT mode. But if you were already...

    Dropbox

    Thanks for the advice. I'll wait for Mountain Lion and hope that deals with the problems.

    Dropbox

    I know I could use iCloud, but that means that I have to use Lion on my iMac. i have heard varied opinions about Lion - and I await Mountain Lion. What do you all think?

    Dropbox

    Yes, but it is not a very satisfactory solution. If I have a very large document, or one with large numbers of photos or,complex formatting, I may not be able,to,do,this. Surely in the limit I may have a document that is too big for my email but should fit into Dropbox. Does anyone have an...
