    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

    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...

    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...

    Dropbox

    Ok after a series of experiments, the result is this. I write a document in Pages on the iPad. I email it to myself as an attachment, either as a pdf, a pgs, or a doc. I twll Mail to "open in dropbox" . All three versions open inDropbox. The pdf is perfect and has the formatting...

    Dropbox

    I realise that the reason I lost all the formatting such as footnotes and jpgs is that in going from Pages to Dropbox I went via GoodReader, which meant that I had to make a new .txt. But .txt does not take special formatting and pictures. I can of course email the Pages dpcument either as a...

    Dropbox

    I successfully passed the Pages document to GoodReader and then to Dropbox, but it loses all formatting, such as footnotes and embedded jpgs. If anyone has any further ideas I will try them. Npm

    Dropbox

    I write documents on my iPad using Pages. I want to send them to Dropbox so that I can access them on my iMac using Snow Leopard. I can manage the other way round - if I put a document file into Dropbox on the iMac I can get it on the iPad. But I cannot see how to upload a Pages document from...

    Groups in Contacts

    I Have a whole string of "untitled group" entries and they seem to be proliferating when I synch contacts to my iiMac. Moreover there is no "edit" button on their pages, so how can I delete them, and how can I stop this happening? I have one other group that is proliferating in the same way...

    Problem about Mail settings

    Hi! I have looked at the mail settings again, and I am still getting the problem. It seems always to say that it cannot find the me.com account, but as I said before, all I have to do is go to the Mail account page and hit "Done" without doing anything else and all is well. Also, although it...

    Problem about Mail settings

    Sometimes when I access my mail, either through me.com, or through wanadoo.fr, and also through iCloud, I get a message saying that there is something wrong with my settings and the system cannot handle either displaying mail on the screen, or sending it from my iPad. The message preview is...

    Pages and Notes Dictionary

    How can I add words to the iPad dictionary so that they are not flagged as a spelling error? For example, I want to use the Latin word "cogitans" in an article I am writing, so I do not want the spell checker to flag it. In a similar way, I want to use English English spelling, for example...

    Spell checking

    IN Pages on my iMac I can teach the vocabulary to accept unusual words as correct, and not needing to be corrected. For example I can tell Pages to accept " cogitans", a Latin word, as acceptable. How do I change or add to the spell checking vocabulary on the iPad?

    On my iMac I use wanadoo.fr (Orange) as my email provider, with Eudora as a front end. I can set filters to block undesirable email in either wanadoo or Eudora. How do I set filters in iPad mail? I have accounts both for wanadoo.fr and also for me.com
