Using Text and Graphics in Documents

The June PTSLUG two-hour workshop will focus on creating and using text and graphics in documents.

 This free workshop will be for both Mac users and those with iOS devices (iPad and iPhones).

Gary Estes will explore Apple’s Pages application. Bob Snow will look at using text in many applications including Notes, Mail and Text Edit. They will cover things like creating documents from scratch vs. using templates, time-saving shortcuts, adding graphics to text documents or adding text to graphics, and how to create universal PDF documents once you have created your document.

The workshop will be from 2-4 PM at the Kala Point clubhouse on Friday, June 23rd. All of the apps covered are on both Macs and iOS devices with the exception of Text Edit (Mac only). However, they work somewhat differently on the Mac OS vs. the iOS.

      Afternoon Class
The Monthly Afternoon Class covers a variety of topics related to both Mac and iOS devices. These are generally hands-on classes to help you better understand both the operating systems and the programs that run on them. This SIG meets on the fourth Friday of the month at the WSU Computer Room. These classes are free, but require reservations via our email list. Please subscribe to our email list above.

From time to time we record the audio and screen actions from presentations, or to illustrate answers to frequently asked questions. These screencasts can be a good source for video tutorials on Mac functions you may not be familiar with. To view these screencasts, please visit our Vimeo Gallery.
