Re: Share extension

Found a kludgy workaround in a couple of articles online. This works for pdf attachments and web pages, but not, alas, emails, at least not from the apps (Mail, Spark, Gmail) I've tried it with. 1. From the page/site you want to copy, hit the share button in the upper right hand corner 2. Select &qu...

Re: Thesauraus Link

Until we have integration, I'm trying out Terminology , which I downloaded for a buck from the App Store yesterday. Haven't had a chance to use it yet though.

Re: Using a single project file or multiple projects

Re: Keyboard Shortcuts

You're right, Yosimiti! I did indeed disconnect from BT a couple days ago for the first time in awhile. So far no other problems though.

Re: Keyboard Shortcuts

An update: I have no idea why, but now my Logitech keys to go forward delete (fn-delete) is working perfectly in all apps. I'm using it and the iPad Pro more than the Mac and Apple Cinema Display now, even at home.

Re: IPad Apps Cull

Hope I'm not diverting the topic too far from the OP's intentions, but I think this points up a larger issue: iOScrivener can actually help solve one of iOS 's main limitations: the lack of a file system. I too used to use the Finder/Dropbox as a central repository for all my documents, whether text...

About 1.5 cm for the number keys, 1.75 cm for the letter keys, smaller iOS function keys. Specs page.

Re: Keyboard Shortcuts

Logitech keys to go. Not only doesn't it work, using that command freezes Safari, so I have to switch to another app and then back to unfreeze it!
FN-Delete did work with my Apple Wireless keyboard, but it also brought up the emoji window! I have no idea why these things are happening...

Re: Thesauraus Link

I was just about to ask about this before reading the original post. Even if there's no hope of a direct connection by selecting a term a la the dictionary function, can anybody recommend a good thesaurus app or website?

Re: Keyboard Shortcuts

For some reason, fn-delete doesn't work on my BT keyboard. Is there another iOS keyboard shortcut for forward delete? Of course I'd never ask a developer to add a new shortcut just for l'il ol' me...

Not foldable but still extremely portable (I've put it in a jacket inside pocket): https://techcrunch.com/2014/11/14/logit ... long-term/.
There's a new red one available for $24 on Amazon US right now , and a black refurb there for $22.

Re: iPad air, mini or pro?

I too used to use my old apple wireless keyboard, in its Incase Origami keyboard case/stand, with my iPad Pro. It's my regular Mac keyboard when I have it hooked up to my display. But I switched to the Logitech keys to go because it was much thinner, quieter, cheap ($14), and unlike the Apple board,...

Re: iPad air, mini or pro?

I had a Matias Tactile (not Quiet) Pro and a small condo some years back, until my wife understandably threatened divorce. It was REALLY clacky and she could hear it in another room even with the door closed. But actually the problem was switching back and forth between my PowerBook (or iBook, I for...

Re: iPad air, mini or pro?

I'm actually wondering if there's a portable keyboard out there that feels like a traditional mechanical keyboard, and can be used for an iOS device. Everything out there seems to want emulate the typing experience on a MacBook; this is fine, unfortunately I tend to make more typing errors on the n...
