It only took about 30 seconds after the iPad was announced for everyone to start wondering how (or if) we’d be able to hook up our iPad to a Mac and use it as a giant touchpad. Of course, now Apple has released the Magic Trackpad, but its paltry 21.8 square inches of touchable, clickable real estate can’t hold a candle to the iPad’s 45.2 inches.
I created a document in Microsoft Word with lots of hyperlinks, but when I save the document as a PDF file, the hyperlinks are not clickable. Do you know what I have to do to make these links clickable?
Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 arrives at the end of October, tempting us all with the powerful new Outlook 2011 email client (formerly called Entourage)--but the Home & Business Edition of the suite is $199. So why not take a second look at Mail, the free email client that Apple includes with every Mac? Mail is a capable application, but Apple likes to keep its software simple, so it lacks the advanced features of Outlook 2011 or even Entourage 2008. But with a few tips and some extra pieces of inexpensive software up your sleeve, you can beef up Apple Mail to be just as powerful as Microsoft’s email programs.
I followed Mac|Life’s advice and got myself hooked on Read It Later. Now whenever I want to save a webpage on my Mac for later reading, I just click the Read It Later button in Safari’s toolbar, and that article shows up in the Read It Later app on my iPhone. But when I tried to add Read It Later’s bookmarklet to Mobile Safari, I repeatedly got a MobileMe error message on my Mac that ended up deleting the bookmarklet from my iPhone. How can I avoid this?
All of the Macs at our company print to two very expensive network photocopier/scanners: the Canon ImageRunner 2270 and the Canon ImageRunner 3025. We just upgraded the office to Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard, but there are no Snow Leopard drivers on Canon’s website! So now we can’t print at all! We called Canon, and they told us to downgrade to Leopard or purchase a newer photocopier because ours have been discontinued.
I’ve opened up a 75-page PDF in Preview, and I need to extract three pages to email to somebody. I’ve been looking for some way to export only these three pages out of the PDF or to split the PDF, but I can’t figure out how to do it.
I use Safari as my RSS reader on my Mac and a different RSS reader on my iPad. One thing that I’ve noticed is that Safari on my Mac is not showing me all of the articles in my RSS feeds! I figured this out after realizing that I was seeing significantly more news articles on my iPad than on my Mac.
