Re: MacKeeper

I have been using MacKeeper for several months now without any problem. All of the functions seem to work as advertised, are easy to use, and are well explained. The primary reason buying it was for the anti-virus protection ... one of many tasks that is provided by MacKeeper. (see screenshot) It is...

Re: Switching to iCloud--Any Downside?

It is pretty hard to know about actual downsides, since iCloud will still not be offically released for another week (October 12). The only currently known downsides are the lack of support for iWeb website publishing and what we have come to know as iDisk. After next week, much more will be known a...

Re: Bento Name Tags

Richard is correct. Avery DesignPro is a FREE download from here . There are a variety of editable Name Badge templates to select from. (see first screenshot) Mail merge can then be done using data from Address Book, Mail, or from an exported .csv (Comma Separated Values) file ... like from Numbers....

Re: iTunes U Syncing?

So what do your iTunesU settings look like?

The default setting is to only load items that are unplayed. (see screenshot)

Unless you have changed that setting, played items will be removed whenever you sync.

Re: Bento Name Tags

As Stephen indicated, Bento 4 has added the capability of printing labels and name badges. Name badge printing amounts to printing a label, where the printer stock is actually badge stock, like Avery 8163. The Print dialog box allows you to configure which fields are to be printed, how the text is t...

Re: Bento - Table

I am using Bento 4.0, and this version has a text size option in the General tab of Preferences (see screenshot).

Possibly Bento v1 has the same.

Re: Address Book problem

You can't change a smart group to a regular group, even by using the Edit command. My suggestion would be to create a new regular group. Then select the smart group that has the contacts that you want, and drag them to the new group. When you finish with that, delete the smart group using the gear m...

Re: Mail program doesn't work

Have you tried Googling "ipad mail stopped working"?

Do that and you can read about several things to try, like going to Settings and then turning off that account and then turning it back on again.

Or quitting the Mail app and then restarting it. Or restarting the iPad.

Re: Address Book problem

Without having a screenshot of what you are seeing in Address Book, it is difficult to make a reliable diagnosis. However, here is one possibility: If your group icon is purple with a small gear in the middle, then the group is a "smart group". You cannot drag a contact into a "smart group", since c...
