    How do view *all* app purchases on iPad Pro / iPad OS 14.7 ?

    Can someone describe how I can put my eyeballs on my entire apps purchase history? I can see some items but not all. I unintentionally deleted an app I paid for. App store wants to charge me for a new copy of that app, and nothing in my Settings > Account will give me a full accounting of...

    Messages fail

    I recently nuke n paved my 2nd Gen 12.9” iPad pro. I managed to restore or re-connect all of my Messages conversations except for one of them. I enter the exact same contact info as on my iPhone, where that conversation works fine. Is there a way to have this iPad reconnect to or load or...

    Restore Contacts, Messages conversations after reformat?

    I recently reformatted by 2nd Gen 12.9” iPad Pro. Is there something I can do to get my iPhone to share or “instruct” the iPad what my Contacts are, and to restore all of my Messages conversations - maybe restore isn’t the right word..to make them appear in the iPad’s Messages app? Thank you!

    Battery life while painting?

    Ive been painting a lot more lately, with Procreate. Hours on end. I’ve noticed that the iPad throws the low battery more often. I’d expect this more from video editing. Might sound like a dumb question, but does Procreate - or any paint app - drain the battery faster than other apps? Is it...

    Many were. I deleted the recently deleted, rebooted and still not seeing the freed space.

    Today I deleted more than 40 gb worth of files but it looks like only about 20gb worth of space was actually liberated. will I eventually see this freed space? thank you

    That part I get. What I wonder is: do the iPad and iPad OS have minimum free space requirements in order to function properly?

    Minimum free storage req’d iPad Pro 2nd gen?

    12.9” iPad Pro 2nd / 256GB Do either machine or os require a minimum amount of free space as macs do (or did?) in order to operate properly? Swap space? I’m working on a video and down to 2.33gb available. I’m told when I have too little room to rip a video at a certain quality but I am not...

    Can’t find 53GB worth of airdropped files!

    It is definitely an area of great concern, allied IMO to the overall project of bringing true file management to the iPad. I always feel, when I try to manage my files, that I'm on borrowed time, sooner or later some little bit will have a snit and the whole process tossed into the drink.

    Can’t find 53GB worth of airdropped files!

    What makes this really weird, is that I got the Air Drop “Progress Circle” around the icon of the iPad, to which the files were being airdropped. The process took an hour. Since I can’t find the files, I spent an hour on…sending them into outer space?

    Can’t find 53GB worth of airdropped files!

    I airdropped 53 GB worth of files from an M1 Mac Mini to an 2nd Gen 12.9” iPad Pro. The amount of occupied space shown under iPad storage look right after taking on the additional 53GB, but I see no trace of these files in the Files app or in Photos. Are there other ways to locate all this...

    Can’t delete file because it doesn’t exist. Restarting iPad doesn’t clear this issue.

    NSquirrel - that worked beautifully. Gonna tuck that away in my book of Magick Spelles and Potions. Thank you!

    Can’t delete file because it doesn’t exist. Restarting iPad doesn’t clear this issue.

    Any suggestions how to convince the iPad either that the file is there, and to please delete it, or, if the file really is gone, to please stop displaying the file in the files folder. Thank you!

    Removing stubborn iPad backup from Mac Book Pro

    I used to have my 12.9” 2nd-Gen iPad pro backed up my Mac Book Pro. I want to delete this backup and start fresh, but the iPad and MBPro aren’t havin’ it. I nuke and paved the Mac Book Pro; any trace of that back up should be gone. Could it be that the iPad thinks there’s still a backup on the...

    Cursor problems in Pages - cursor doesn’t show insertion point

    Lately I’ve noticed that Pages is having big problems showing where the text insertion point it. There’s a cursor...sometimes two, and neither one is always correct as to where characters will appear when typing starts. Anyone else?

    Coda intercepts AirDrop transfers. Can this be fixed?

    When I tried to airdrop files from iPad to iPhone, the app Coda (web authoring) on the iPhone leaped out to grab the files - I wasn’t asked where I wanted the files to go. Deleting Coda from the iPhone solved it in a sense, but is there a way to tell Coda - or any other app - that its input...

    Is my Apple Pencil’s battery dying?

    I'd say that that 12 hours' worth of working time is about right, but what is new to me is plugging in the pen, and watching the green circle go from appx 100% down to appx 5% as I watched. I'd never seen that green circle move, except upward, during the charging process. Over the life of the...

    Is my Apple Pencil’s battery dying?

    I can plug my Apple Pencil (the round-barrel one) into either my iPad Pro, or into the charger using the little adapter. It appears to take a charge - shows the lightning bolt - and the battery indicator on the iPad shows the lightning bolt for the pencil, too. After seemingly charging the...

    Files search results and how to use them

    I did a search for “reference” at the top level of Files app, got several results. Using “Info” on each resulting folder, I learned which project it was in, then adjusted the name to reflect that project. Next thing I know, there are two such re-named folders in my search results! To me, this...

    Storying photos in Files, or in Photos.app?

    Sorry..meant to say, “Storing” While I get - and have used - the benefits of the Photos app, I'm not wild about the management of my photos using Photos.app I've begun to store photos by category in Files, and am contemplating the tedious task of moving photos which are "in" the Photos app to...

    Can File Folders on iPad be password-protected?

    I don’t see a way within the Files app, so are 3rd-party solutions the only way right now? Any of them good, trustworthy? Thank you!

    Press-Hold Dock icons shows things that don’t belong to those apps!

    Example: if I press-hold on the Scrivener icon, I see little thumbnails of images which haven’t been pasted into any of my Scrivener projects or documents. Neither do I see any Scrivener dox; perhaps Scrivener doesn’t support it, but I shouldn’t be seeing thing which aren’t even related to the...

    Can 2nd-gen iPad Pro “beam” it’s video to a large-screen TV via bluetooth?

    Good to know...I think I’ll back-burner the idea until it can be done faster...I assume that lots of ppl want to do this.

    Failed xfer to USB “ghost” folders - how to get rid of them?

    Some things which I feel that Apple could do to enhance the Pro aspects of file management would be to add a progress indicator for all file movement operations, error warnings in case something fails, and to have item counts appear on the destination side as well as on the source. Those would...

    Failed xfer to USB “ghost” folders - how to get rid of them?

    Thank you for asking, twerppoet. The “ghost folders” are no longer on the USB drive. I believe it was your suggestion of restarting the iPad which cleared them, or persuaded the iPad that they really aren’t there after all. I also tried your suggestion of connecting the drive to a Mac Pro...

    Failed xfer to USB “ghost” folders - how to get rid of them?

    Thank you..going to try the restart the iPad method now. Will later try the invisible files on the Mac. FWIW, this iPad does not have a USB port; it’s lightning. I use an adapter to connect my USB thumb drive. Perhaps I got the generation # wrong...my bad!
