Tip - macOS - Preview Tips - Pt 3

Date: 28th March 2017

Duration: 06:06

Show ref: SCOM0616

Following on in the occasional series about the fantastic Preview app on the Mac, this weekly tip video covers some of the "party tricks" built right into Preview, and exposes a surprise in iOS too.

Firstly, I demonstrate how to extract beautiful full sized Application Icons from your installed apps with a few simple keystrokes, and use Preview to resize and export them.

Then I move on to the really smart way of setting up signatures in Preview on the Mac - either using your trackpad, or using your camera to snap your signature to use in your PDF forms.

Unfortunately there is no separate Preview app for iOS, but did you know that you can actually access Preview functionality on your iOS device, even creating and applying signatures? Annotate, create Loupes, add Text - it's all available for free in iOS - even if slightly hidden away.

What's more, any annotations you make to your documents will sync between your Mac and iOS, but even your signature "Library" will sync too.

Watch this week's tip and all will be revealed!

Reminders is a surprisingly powerful application that comes with macOS, iOS and watchOS. With Reminders, you can bridge the gap between your calendar and a to do list. Reminders can be set for when you arrive or leave a location, they can be set for specific times and dates, they can repeat, and they can even be set to remind you to do something when you get into or out of your car.

Reminders even lets you share lists with other Apple users so you can collaborate on tasks. You can use Siri to set up Reminders on your Mac, but Siri on iOS and the Apple Watch, makes Reminders the best tool for when you're on the run.

Tip - macOS - iTunes Views

Date: 21st March 2017

Duration: 04:27

Show ref: SCOM0614

This week's tip is all about using iTunes views to access your music.

The main views all look very pretty, but they aren't very information dense, at least, not enough for my liking.

In this tip, I cover the main views, but focus mainly on the Song view, and take a look at using the Column Browser. The Column Browser allows you to display more information on screen, and allows you to filter your music with a greater degree of control.

Using Genres is a bit of a blunt instrument to organise and categorise your music. What if you have a ton of Rock tracks but many many different "sub genres"? Well it's possible to create your own "sub genres" using the "Groupings" feature.

All is revealed in this week's tip show.

Tip - macOS & iOS - Apple Photos - Keywords

Date: 7th March 2017

Duration: 05:32

Show ref: SCOM0610

Tip Video - We have covered Apple Photos in depth on ScreenCastsOnline, but in this short tip video, I want to revisit how to create and manage metadata with your iCloud Photo Library.

On both the Mac and iOS, Apple Photos is getting smarter by applying machine learning technology on the device, to automatically categorise photos. However, there are still instances when you want to add your own personal metadata in the form of titles, descriptions, keywords or location information.

In this tip video, I focus on adding title and keyword metadata via the Info Panel and the Keyword Manager.

Curio 11 - Note Taking and more

Duration: 47:51

Show ref: SCOM0609

Curio 11 is a freeform notebook with just about every tool you can think of to help you take notes, brainstorm ideas, collect research, and organize your tasks and documents. Curio is a powerful tool that includes the functions of many stand alone applications, allowing you to focus on the task at hand, without having to worry about switching applications for different aspects of your project.

Curio is available in three versions Core, Standard, and Professional with each adding a few more features than the previous version. In this screencast, Todd Olthoff walks us through the Professional version to give you an overview of all of the features packed into Curio 11.

Tip - macOS & iOS - Using Twitter Lists

Date: 28th February 2017

Duration: 06:06

Show ref: SCOM0608

Tip Video - We looked at filtering your Twitter timeline with Mute filters a couple of weeks ago in episode SCOM0604.

Another option to take control of Twitter is to create and subscribe to Twitter lists. Twitter lists allow you to create multiple timelines based on specific people, it's a great way to organise the Twitter firehose into something more manageable.

In this short tip video, I take you through the mechanisms built into Tweetbot on the Mac and iOS to allow you to setup and subscribe to Twitter lists.

Tip - Integration with Marked 2

Tip Video - Following on from our recent tutorials on Bear & Ulysses, I take a look at previewing Markdown formatted files with Marked 2.

Bear - Notes for iPad, iPhone & Mac

Date: 17th February 2017

Duration: 45:45

Show ref: SCOM0605

Bear is the new kid on the block as far as plain text editing on the Mac, iPad and iPhone is concerned.

Despite being a committed Ulyssess and Scrivener user, my interest was piqued by the glowing reviews and the fact that Bear was selected as "App of the Year" 2016 by Apple.

After using Bear for a couple of weeks (and the fact that I received many requests), I decided that it would be remiss of me not to cover Bear on ScreenCastsOnline - it really is a beautiful app!

However, there is one aspect of the app that may not sit well with some people, and that's to enable syncing between devices (and to switch on some other functionality), you need to upgrade to Bear Pro, which just happens to be a subscription service.

Consequently, in this tutorial, I focus mainly on the features in the free version, but still take a look at the Bear Pro options.

Well worth taking a look!

Tip Video - There's never been a better time to start filtering and muting parts of your Twitter stream.

In this short tip video, I take you through the mechanisms built into Tweetbot on the Mac and iOs to allow you to mute People, Keywords, Hashtags and Twitter Clients.

Although this tutorial features DEVONthink Pro Office, many of the features are also included in the other version of DEVONthink.

Wunderlist for Mac & iOS

Date: 6th January 2017

Duration: 42:18

Show ref: SCOM0593

Mike Schmitz did a fantastic job of teaching us the Getting Things Done philosophy in his three part series. In those tutorials, he concentrated on using OmniFocus as the task manager. Whilst OmniFocus is a great task manager, it's extremely powerful and may be overkill for some people.

If you'd still like to try out some GTD principals, why not use an alternative task manager to OmniFocus called Wunderlist.

Wunderlist is cross platform with free apps for iOS, Mac, (and Windows, Android, Windows Phone, Amazon Kindle Fire and even Chromebooks!)

In this tutorial, Allison Sheridan will teach how to to use this fantastic tool, keep your action items synced across all of your Mac and iOS devices, how to share to-do lists, and even assign action items to other people.

DEVONthink Pro Office [Pt 2]

Date: 30th December 2016

Duration: 52:11

Show ref: SCOM0590

DEVONthink is one of the most powerful database applications made for the Mac. In this second episode, Todd Olthoff takes us through some of the core and advanced features of DEVONthink Pro Office.

In this second of three screencasts, Todd looks at grouping, classifying and explores the powerful search features of DEVONthink Pro Office. In addition, he also takes a look at DEVONthink on the iPad with the new iOS app - DEVONthink to Go

Although this tutorial features DEVONthink Pro Office, many of the features are also included in the other version of DEVONthink.

When it comes to getting things done, a little planning and organizing can go a long way.

In Part 3 of the GTD Productivity series, we show you how to leverage the hard work you did in capturing (Part 1), clarifying, and organizing (Part 2) into increased efficiency by utilizing your task management tools to display just the tasks you need to do, when you need to do them.

Date: 2nd December 2016

Duration: 45:16

Show ref: SCOM0586

DEVONthink is one of the most powerful database applications made for the Mac. In fact, some people have said this one application makes it worth getting a Mac just to run it!

In this introductory episode, Todd Olthoff takes us through all of the core features of DEVONthink Pro Office

Following on from the extremely popular GTD Part 1 episode (SCOM0578), Mile Schimtz takes a look at two other important facets of the GTD system - Clarify & Organise.

Underscoring the core principal of using a trusted system as your task manager, in this case OmniFocus, Mike looks at using other applications we’ve previously covered on ScreenCastsOnline to set up reference files.
