  1. Calendar explanations

    Hello.

    I set up family sharing (between me and my partner, no-one else here) on our Calendars, which seemed like a good thing.

    Mostly, it works, at least between our iPads and occasionally our...

    Two-factor turning off

    Hello.

    Fed up with being asked to find an iPad and type in 6-digit codes onto my Mac, I thought the easiest way would be to turn off two-factor authentication.

    Which, according to many on the...

    Thanks Sue. I've tried the Terminal route, and it's okay, but you have to turn it OFF each time you want AirDrop to act normally, so it's cumbersome.

    However, the other process looks sound, so...

    Yes and no is the answer. Yes, if I connect from my later MacMini to my partner's old Macbook, then we an establish an AirDrop link, which is useful. No, she can't link to me using the same route,...

    Old Macs and Airdrop

    Partner has an 'ancient' Macbook Pro (2008). We both have iPads, and I use a MacMini (late-ish).

    Anyway, we often send things to each other via Airdrop, or rather we do on our iPads, and to and...

    Family sharing

    Hello.

    Thought I was doing well, by setting up Family Sharing so that my partner could see my Calendar and all its appointments etc. on HER Macbook Pro. But no.

    My Apple ID is quite different...

    Yes, I have heard that. The only reason I was heading for Pages was that I already have it, on Mac and iPad, and I'm getting meaner as I get old.

    I know it's not as simple as this, but would you...

    Patrick (and all other helpers).

    Yes, the answer is 'No'. I downloaded DesignPad, upgraded it for ten pounds to the next level, and no, you can't open existing QX files with it.

    There were...

    Right, Ashwin. I've been using QX for 30 years or more, so like it, and yes, it is the best of the DTP-type programs. I'll play with the Pages idea, as it might be a way round this.

    No, nothing on my iPad! I don’t mind buying some sort of program, but the nearest I can get is QuarkDesignPad which is $300, and probably as many pounds. I was hoping for a workround, as otherwise...
  17. One darn thing after another (iCloud onwards)

    You (collectively) have helped me get iCloud sharing set up on my Mac Mini and my iPad, for which many thanks.

    However... although I can now see my various QuarkXpress documents on my iPad, I...

    Ashwin, I owe you!

    I’d never seen that ‘sign out’ button, and having pressed it, all fell into place.

    Not sure what, but if ever you need anything, please ask.

    Thanks again.

    Good advice Ashwin - another loophole is that Quark autosaves to the Document Folder, unless you pre-instruct it otherwise, so I'll double-check all that, too.
