Can you explain exactly what is happening.....you say red lines, are you getting a red exclamation mark beside the message and a message that the text wasn't sent? This would normally signify a lack of Internet connection on your iPad. In the meantime check your iMessage settings and contact for your friend to make sure all is fine on your end.
Hi all My Ipad 4 automatically switches off after a few minutes usage .. Is there a setting I am missing ?
My iPad mini will not let me send messages to many of my contacts. When I type their names in the TO box, the letters change to a red color. This means the message will not be sent. I have iMessage turned on. Not sure what else to do in the settings to correct this problem. It happens when I message people with and without Apple prods. Yet, if these people message me, I receive the message and can reply. But I cannot initiate a message to these same people. My iPhone and iPad have both been updated to 7.
Hi, welcome to iPF!I am a brand new iPad Mini owner who has been using Android devices for a long time. Overall, the mini looks like a nice device. However I'm trying to do something that is trivially simple on the Android device but I have been struggling with for a couple of hours now on the iPad. I'm trying to edit a plain text file that is stored in a Drop Box directory. I have tried four different iPad apps including Plain Text, Documents, Documents 2, and QuickOffice. It's easy to view the Drop Box file, and I have been able to open and edit it using all three of the mentioned applications. However none of the apps sseems to have a "save" function to store it back in it's Drop Box folder. The best I have been able to do is store it locally on the iPad, for which each app seems to have it's own storage area. On the Android device the steps are: 1. Open the Drop Box folder 2. Tap on the .txt file I want to edit 3. Edit the file 4. Tap "save" How does one do that same thing on the iPad? Thanks in advance.
Office2HD should to be able to edit files offline. Look at this thread: http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-busi...p-allows-editing-word-files-when-offline.htmlThanks for the reply. I finally got Plain Text to work. It needed to be told to access the entire Drop Box folder, not just it's own. That solves the one problem for .txt files. The other two apps can edit other document files, but I haven't found a way to get them to save edited files to a Drop Box folder. I tried CloudOn and it seems to be an online app only. I need something that will allow me to edit files stored in Drop Box when offline and then have them sync up when I get back on line. Thanks, Allen
We're totally new to Apple software - in my case after over 20 years with Microsoft programs and I'm completely flummoxed.
We got the book "My new iPad" by Walter Wang and we're gradually getting more capability on the box. One item that I can't understand is "Why can't I find any programs that would allow me to PRINT things." Wang's book doesn't even have "Printing" in its index. Our previous MS-based net-book printed the same way my desk-top did, but over a wi-fi link to the printer. It had the same Lexmark software in it as my desktop machine had.
If iPad can't print, its days are severely numbered. We'll be looking to get DW a new MS lap-top within a month.
