Lit Apple Mac, iPhone, iPad User Group





Starting this thread as been helping members using their Apple devices to access Lit since shortly after I joined, but as a lot of people say "I"m busier now, more than ever". What a crock of crap, couldn't even type that with a straight face. This is just easier to share than multiple PM's.

I am not a Apple Genius, or a Fangirl.

This thread is not post asking Sandy how to do something, or with a problem. Rather a forum to post if you have a: question, problem, possibly an answer, something to share, a suggestion or comment.



As people can be passionate about their devices:

Please donít post just to complain i.e. Apple products are expensive. Or Apple is a niche, Windows and Android have more market share.

Please donít post anti-Apple this, that, and the other, or pro Windows or Android.

Please don't post sexual based photos or text, there's the rest of Lit for that.



Thanks to Fun Size for her proofing and feedback.

Sandy

Seems as good as place as any to start this thread is the beginning of Apple.











The house at 2066 Crist Drive, Los Altos, is where Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built the first Apple computer.





1976 - Apple I





Not even a computer case, only the Printed Circuit Board. Buyer connected a keyboard and television set.






Apple unveils the 128K Macintosh in 1984ófirst via an unforgettable Super Bowl ad evoking George Orwell, and insinuating IBM as Big Brother, and then two days later with a formal introduction on stage in Cupertino, CA. In a single five-minute segment, Steve Jobs lays out the template for all future Apple events:

After realizing people have no idea what I"m talking about, this is how I came about starting this thread.






Monday June 4th, Apple is expected to announce macOS 10.14 and users have been warned that it won't maintain full compatibility for 32-bit apps for much longer. Here's a way to see the complete list of apps installed on your system that will require updates.



First, click the Apple logo in the top left corner of your screen and select About this Mac.





Click System Report.





Scroll down on the left-hand panel to find the Software section, and select Applications.





You'll find the affected apps in the far-right column, under the heading 64-Bit (Intel). Applications labeled with "No" are 32-bit only.





Apple hasn't outright stated when compatibility with 32-bit apps will be dropped entirely. However, they might suffer from performance issues on the next version of macOS, as they'll no longer run "without compromise."

So does that mean we shouldn't update? or cancel auto updates?

Neither. It means 32-bit apps may not run under 10.14.


Here's Microsoft Office for Mac 2011



Will need Office 2016 for Mac to run under 10.14


I'll post a summary from the WWDC keynote Monday June 4.



Disclosure:
I disable auto updates as I don't want anything calling home, or any company auto-installing software because that's what they want and when they want it. Especially without my permission or knowledge.

A classic example is any PC running Windows 8 or earlier was forced downloaded Windows 10 without users consent and was hidden on their PC.

Since you used the Apple menu in the earlier post, if you're interested here's some information.


Whatís in the Apple menu?
The Apple menu, which contains frequently used items, is located in the upper-left corner of your screen. To open it, click the Apple icon.



About System Information on your Mac
Use the System Information app to see a summary of information about your Mac hardware, software, and network.

Just a couple

Very interesting - I found only half a dozen or so apps that are 32-bit on my macbook. Most are related to a Web-X app I had to use once for a conference and not since. A couple are from Apple and I am not sure what they do.

Since none of the OS later than El Cap 10.11 will install on my Mac, then I don't see a problem, unless the apps attempt to update themselves in which case, Time Machine.

Screenshot your Mac



Your entire screen

Press Command + Shift + 3 all at the same time.

You'll hear a camera click sound, and your screenshot will appear on your desktop in .PNG format, with the title Screen Shot [Date + Time].



Part of your screen

Press Command + Shift + 4 all at the same time.

Place the new crosshair cursor at one corner of the area you want to capture (for example, top left), and click and hold.

Drag the crosshairs to the opposite corner (for example, bottom right).

The crosshairs give you a precise pixel count if you want a specific size (or even to measure). Hold down Option to change the lock point to the center of the area. Hold down Shift to lock all sides but the one in the direction you're currently moving.

When you're happy with the area, *let go** of the mouse button or trackpad. Whatever is contained in the outline is what you'll screenshot.

You'll hear a camera click sound, and your screenshot will appear on your desktop in .PNG format, with the title Screen Shot [Date + Time].



Specific window

Press Command + Shift + 4 all at the same time. Your cursor will turn into crosshairs.

Press the Spacebar. Your cursor will turn into a camera.

Place the camera cursor on top of the window you want to screenshot. The window will tint blue so you can make sure it's the right one.

Click to take the screenshot.

You'll hear a camera click sound, and your screenshot will appear on your desktop in .PNG format, with the title Screen Shot [Date + Time].

A super cool feature is in Quicktime: you can record screen and audio straight into a video format, which is great for on-screen demos etc.
Open QT press the red record button and it'll ask you to select the portion of the screen you want to record.

As a one-stop shop for creative tools, the Adobe Creative Cloud offers well-known applications for design, video editing, and image editing. Photoshop, Premiere, After Effects, and other elements are widely used tools for content creation, but at a fairly high monthly cost that makes it an expensive option.

A more affordable but still powerful alternative to Photoshop is Pixelmator, the image-editing tool made to take advantage of macOS. It offers practically all of the effects and utilities that its Adobe counterpart has, and is also available for iOS, but at a considerably cheaper one-time cost of $29.99.

Will post links to tutorials if there's interest.
