Re: Put names on a map

I really appreciate all this kind input to my rescue and I think I have an okay plan for now. :D I plan to ask a "detective" cousin in Denmark to locate useful map and send me the image. Once I see it, I will experiment with it and see if I come up with more questions. When the time comes I think I ...

Re: Put names on a map

Richard, I think I can do something with this. I played with it quickly. Not clear whether I might use blank map (no pins), mark with arrows and label or whether I will do map with pins to start with and only add labels. Seems like I can make it work either way. Thanks Richard - I had no idea Previe...

Re: Put names on a map

Thank you Stephen and Ray, I much appreciate your quick and thoughtful responses. I think that Google Earth is too "modern busy" (has too many present day things showing) for my purposes so I didn't explore it much. I did look at it quickly (not using device, but my Mac) - I did not see anything abo...

Put names on a map

It seems to me it should be entirely possible to do this, but I cannot figure it out! On Google maps I can set little pins to mark places and if I make all the pins different looking, I can then use a list to the left as a reference to see which pin marks what place. I'd love to mark places with ver...

Re: Printer says offline - not any more!

Yes, Jay, I'm sure you are really worried...

But, I get the message: Remember that restarting the computer is a main trouble-shooter. :)

Re: Quicken for Mac

I just want to add my voice to the mix: I use Quicken Essentials and am happy with it. Works well for everything I need it to do, but then my needs are pretty basic. I was unhappy initially that I'd have to change from Quicken which I have used for many years, but once I got over my irritation and w...

Printer says offline - not any more!

My printer all of a sudden insists that it is "offline". I have looked at previous posting on this forum for ideas what to try. I have a USB connection directly from printer to computer. I have double checked the connections, taken them apart, reconnected, wiggled etc. No change. I was all excited t...
