We are at the half-way mark of our Word Boot Camp series of 8 sessions (plus a 9th Q&A session), and one the the topics covered recently was how you can set the default font type, style, colour, size, spacing etc for all future Microsoft Word documents.
This topic features in a Handy Hint for iTandCoffee Club members, published (co-incidentally) almost exactly 2 years ago. So I am including it again this week.
Over the past week, I have had multiple calls from people wanting to book appointments to deal with email issues - specifically Bigpond mail issues.
The problem they have been encountering has ranged from a slow, unreliable service, to a non-functional service that means they are cut off from their email - at a time when may people are so reliant on that form of contact. Attempts to access Webmail result in 'timeout' messages.
As a result of these calls, I took a look at the Telstra Outages website and found the following message about the state of their email service - advising of a Network update from 10th August. The calls I received advised that their problems had been occurring from about 17th August.
In October this year, Microsoft will be ending its support of Office 2016. As described on the Microsoft website, this means that
Here's an article that talks about this topic.
So what should you do if you are still using Office 2016 (or an even older version) on your computer?
I saw an article recently that talked about all the ways that you can improve your Wi-Fi connection if you are suffering problems with your Zoom meetings (or any other type of videoconferencing).
Here is that article, which has some really good suggestions for fixing interference issues that might be impacting your network.
However, none of the suggestions it offered fixed my own Wi-Fi issues - constant dropouts, that were dramatically impacting my ability to effectively deliver online classes. This was despite the fact that I am close to my router, and generally have excellent download/upload speeds.
Here's how I solved my own problem - and I am loving the result!
iTandCoffee has been working with a client, assisting to run several Zoom sessions for that client.
For the first Zoom session, we encountered an issue where the client could not add me as a co-host - only as a host.
Here's what was causing this issue and how we fixed it.

Client Sandy M has an issue with a Note that she has locked. In trying to open the Note on her iPad, she is asked to enter the Password for the Note. She can't get to it using her Touch ID on that device until she first enters the password to set this up.
However, she can't remember the password she used for that Note.
Fortunately, she can still get into the Note using Touch ID on her iPhone. So here's how she can make sure she can access the Note on the iPad as well.
Are you someone who is playing a lot of podcasts during this period of COVID-19 restrictions?
If you download your podcasts - perhaps so that you can listen to them on a walk - you may find that, over time, your podcast files end up chewing a large amount of valuable space on your device.
Here's how to find out how much space your Podcasts are using, and then do a quick cleanup of any you no longer need to store.

If you have an Excel spreadsheet that you use over an over - perhaps using the Save As function to save as a new version each time you need to re-use it - it's really worth considering saving it as a Template instead.

Something that I love about running classes at iTandCoffee is that, every time I create a new class, I learn so many new things!
It's amazing how you can use an app nearly every day and not notice some of the amazing features that it offers - and that you could have been utilising! You tend to stick with what you know, and not take the time explore.
When putting together the presentation and demonstration for the Word Boot Camp that I am currently running, here's a feature I discovered that really struck a chord with me and fellow Boot Campers!
