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...

Re: Printing from an iPad

The short answer is that there is no easy way to print from all apps that you would probably want to print from. Printing directly from an iPad to a non-AirPrint enabled printer (even a Bluetooth enabled printer) would require having an appropriate printer driver available, and iOS4 just does not in...

Re: Cool Graphics!

Thanks. The first trick was to find appropriate icons that all had transparent backgrounds. Then, all of the icons had to be resized to 50 x 50 pixels (so that the forum titles would line up), and finally each had to be uploaded to the Straitmac.org site at Olypen. I hope everyone likes the icons. 8-)

Re: RapidWeaver 5 On Sale

My suggestion would be to try out RapidWeaver 5 by downloading a free trial version, before you open your wallet to buy anything. I did that at some point in the past, and found RapidWeaver had a very steep learning curve. I gave up trying to learn RapidWeaver ... and returned to iWeb for website cr...
