July Meeting - July 12th, 2019.
The Q&A session will start at 7:00 and run to 7:30 PM.
Geoff Broadhurst will lead July’s General Meeting which will focus on the uses of Pages for layout and design.
Many of us are familiar with Pages as a word processing program that comes free with the purchase of a MacBook Air, MacBook Pro or iMac. (It is also available on the iPad.)
The most familiar versions of Pages currently being used are Pages ’09 and, more recently, Pages ver. 8.0.
[Geoff said he] “stuck with Pages ’09 for many years past its ‘use-by’ date,” because he was used to it and couldn’t find the commands and features he needed to use in the newer Pages (you know how it goes [“if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”]
Well, Geoff is getting used to the newer Pages and it works wonderfully.
In July, we’ll have a demonstration of some of the features of Pages, and you will be shown how easy it is to use this wonderful program to layout multi-column documents using graphics, photos with captions, and how to still find the “save as” command.
Pages is wonderful for single-page documents such as fliers, announcements, and letters to friends (some people still do that), as well as multi-page documents such as vacation diaries, or project journals.
Hard-copy examples will be shown while the on-screen demonstration progresses, and always questions will be gladly entertained.
Hope to see you there.

|You’re Invited to the MacBasics SIG
In order to meet the needs of a wider range of members and not put off those with more than beginning skills, we’ve changed not only the name from Beginner SIG, but also the focus of our SIG. We will still cover applications like AppleWorks and simple procedures like setting up your first Mac, file systems and using utilities, but we’ve also matured, as much of Apple’s software and hardware has. So come on down. We'll be where we’ve always been, doing what we’ve always done, but with a new slant and a new name. The MacBasics SIG is led by Geoff Broadhurst and Rick Matteson. The SIG meeting is broken into two sessions. The first is from 7:00 to 7:30PM, during which we will have our own basic level question and answer session. We’ll break for the featured presentation and raffle and come back for the main portion of our SIG meeting from 8:30 to 10 o’clock. Of course before our MacBasics main demonstration we'll have our own novice Q&A session across the hall, while Bradley's dealing with the more complicated problems in the main room.
As always come with questions. The MacBasics SIG is not just for beginners, but we do discuss aspects of the Mac that may sometimes be overlooked. There will be a MacBasics SIG meeting this month. The topic has not been announced.
The App SIG, is the latest SIG from LIMac. It's a peer-to-peer group where members share their knowledge and experience with the
