    Switching from on-screen keyboard to separate Apple keyboard

    I have an Apple keyboard/case for my iPad pro. How do I switch from the on-screen keyboard to the separate Apple keyboard? Most of the time, when I minimize the on-screen keyboard, the cursor disappears so the separate keyboard won’t type.

    I just upgraded to a 12.9” iPad Pro and Apple smart keyboard. Really nice piece of equipment. The speed and display are impressive.

    In the Apple Mail app, if I press & hold in the body of the message, I get several options including "insert photo" & "insert attachment". "Insert photo" works, "insert attachment" doesn't. What's wrong? I know that I can go to the PAGES or NUMBERS apps, select the document and mail it, but...

    Converting a JPEG photo to a PDF image

    I read that converting a JPEG photo file to a PDF file creates a vector image which can be scaled without becoming pixelated. I tried this with a low-res photo and it became just as pixelated is the original. Since I read this on the Internet, I know it has to be true. What am I missing...

    NUMBERS...How to copy & paste formulas only

    I'd like to replicate an entire table, with formulas but not the data, on another sheet of the spreadsheet. "copy & paste" doesn't offer a "formulas only" option like Excel does. If I "copy & paste" the table, then delete the data, formulas are also deleted. Is there a way? Also, I've tried to...

    Can Pages print sheets of adhesive labels?

    Why would the App Store charge for multiple downloads?

    I recently downloaded Photo Manager Pro to my iPad. Really like this app, so I want to download it to my iPhone and my wife's iPad. The App Store wants to charge me for each additional download.

    Can the default "photo save" app be changed?

    Is it possible to force an iPad to save photos to an app other than the native photo app? For instance, can photos from apps such as PS Touch, Snapseed, Face Tune, etc, be saved directly to an app such as Photo Manager Pro? Same for photos saved from other sources, such as e-mail. I'm mad at...

    Many apps will let you open a page into a different app to work on it, but the choices are very limited. Is there a way to expand this selection? For instance, if I have googled up a document in PDF Format and select "open in", the only app choices offered are Chrome and Safari. Or, more...
