    Hi Gary,
    I got a iMac as an Xmas gift but my husband bought it at an online retailer rather than the Apple store, so I couldn’t get the training. I stumbled on you and you have been INVALUABLE!! Thank you so much. I’m still a novice Mac user (don’t even understand half the questions you get!), but I’m feeling more confident and happy every day as I go through your information. Thanks so much!

    AWESOME TUTORIALS. Not a lot of filler time, just down to the basics. This is so much easier than reading a magazine or instruction book.
    Thank you,
    Please keep them coming.

    You saved me reading 2 boring chapters in a manual. More videos like this about page layouts would be greatly appreciated.

    I am trying to get text to flow between several text boxes, which I have linked. However, when I past the text into the first text box (copied from a website) then it doesn’t flow between the different text boxes, (even though they are linked). And the text exceeds the size of the first text box. Can you help?

      Try unlinking them and relinking. Make sure the boxes are large enough to contain a single line of text. Experiment. Play around with it until you figure out what’s going on.

    Still learning from your “My Pages” book. Tried out the “Page Headers”. Looked for a way to have page headings on all but the first page. Is this possible?

      Yes. Create two sections. The first section contains the first page, the second section contains the rest.
