Afternoon Class

Learn More About Pages

Pages is a important application from Apple. It is included free with all new Macs and iOS devices. Pages is Apple's word processing and layout app. This month’s free, two-hour workshop will explore some of the basic aspects of the application.

Not only is Pages an excellent and easy to use word processing tool, it can also be used as a good page layout program. Gary Estes will show you some of the tricks you will need to lay out professional looking posters, newsletters, and other graphic documents. Pages layout graphics can also be integrated with other programs such as Photoshop and iMovie.

Bob Snow will cover word processing basics including (time permitting) working with text, using the template browser, key features of the user interface, saving & restoring files, using bullets & lists, using smart links and turning Pages documents to PDF and Microsoft Word documents.

The free workshop will be from 2 to 4 PM on Friday, March 22nd at the Kala Point clubhouse.

To signup for this workshop please respond to the email announcement you will be sent later this month. Do not try to signup from this announcement. While all are welcome, priority for the 16 spaces is given to paid up PTSLUG members.
