I would like to find a way where I can screen share from MacBook to 22x iMacs.
We are running a medical imaging course and it would be beneficial for the delegates to see the slides and content that is being shown by the presenter on a MacBook on the podium up close on the iMacs which each delegate will have in front of them. They will be using software on them later in the day.

I know I could use the native OSX screen sharing software but I wonder if it has limitations when trying to share to 22x iMacs simultaneously?

I presume to maintain performance that an ethernet/switch setup is best rather than attempting a Wi-Fi router.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

I would like an app for iPhone, which will allow the download  of PDF files to the iPhone.
There is study material on a specific website, where otherwise in Windows, the PDF study material is downloadable, however on iPhone, it opens the PDF file but within a window, and it does not allow for the download.
Any suggestions?   Safari and Chrome do not seem to work.  And when trying Safari and using the export option to iBooks, it basically sends a screenshot of both pages but not the full PDF document which might be about 60 pages.

Mirror Apple TV on iPad Pro to view MLB-TV

MLB-TV with iPad Pro (iOS 11.4.1) consistently loses WiFi connection with LAN (44.7 mbs / possible 50) iPad rebooting necessary.

Is it possible to mirror Apple TV (MLB-TV OK here) with iPad Pro/Control Panel to view MLB-TV on iPad? Other folks will be watching TV on cable or Netflix/Amazon Prime. This is the reverse of screen mirroring (see Control Panel) as in viewing iDevice on Apple TV.

If so, are there special settings etc.?

I have a Mac book pro which was running on old version - 10.9.7 with Windows running on boot camp. I am not familar with MAC side and always used windows only on this mac.

Recently, due to some issues on my iphone, had to take my phone and mac to apple store which ended up doing a big update on my mac i believe to version 10.13.7 and helped with my iphone restoral which was successfull.

I came home and logged in to windows and noticed that one of the partition on my windows side disappeared i.e Z drive. I originally had C drive and Z drive. I am not really concerned about the data on my Z drive as i do have it backed up but I am curious what happened to it ?  I checked disk management on windows and there is no partition.

I logged into mac side and could only see two drives BootCamp drive ( c drive of windows ) and the Mcintosh HD drive. It is as if my Z drive partition completely disappeared.

Two questions at this point:

1. Any idea what could have happened to my Z drive ? How can this just disappear ?  Is there something simple I am missing.

2.  Inorder to get Z drive back, I started process of Partitioning my Macintosh drive ( Currently 400 GB into 150 GB for Macintosh drive and 250 for new created Z drive )
     Its currently running the process and applying changes to the harddrive.

I attempted to recover to different system from Apple Time Machine it eventually failed due to a untimely network error. Now I can not umount disk on the targeted machine. When I say I can not unmount it I mean I CAN NOT unmount it no matter what approach I use:
Disk utility -- no
Recover -- no
terminal -- no
force via terminal --no
set as a target disk -- no

terminal commands tried were unmout, unmountDisk, unmountVolume
when using recovery on target machine terminal returns the command "no such command"   (so terminal is currupt?)
I have tried all the logical options Google has presented me, I am hoping someone here has a different solution.
Thanks

How would one go about upgrading MacOS devices to the latest OS (High Sierra at the time of this post) through terminal commands only?  For example, a device running El Capitan needs to be upgraded to High Sierra.  I am looking to run this command across multiple MacOS devices, and for a command or script that could run on any MacOS device.

Does anyone know what I need to change to get this VBA code to work in Excel for Mac? It works fine in Windows.

It is a show/hide toggle button for rows while the caption on the button changes as well. I used a form button (not ActiveX).

Sub HideDone()
Dim Shp As Shape
   
   Set Shp = ActiveSheet.Shapes(Application.Caller)
   If Shp.TextFrame.Characters.Text = "Hide Done" Then
      Shp.TextFrame.Characters.Text = "Show All"
      Range("A1").AutoFilter 10, "<>11. Published", xlAnd, "<>Cancelled"
   Else
      Shp.TextFrame.Characters.Text = "Hide Done"
      ActiveSheet.ShowAllData
   End If
End Sub

Open in new window


The message I get is
Run-time error 1004
Method 'TextFrame' of object 'Shape' failed

This code is highlighted in yellow
If Shp.TextFrame.Characters.Text = "Hide Done" Then

Hello experts,

As new users to Mac ecosystem, we were glad that we got the MacBook Air last year and didn't have to worry about buying anything extra in order to work using Air.

The USB ports and the Mini DP was good enough to work with our existing monitor, keyboard and mouse setup.

However, we recently bought the late 2016 MacBook Pro with touch bar with those obnoxious USB-C ports.

Would be great if someone recommends nice adapters/converters to use our USB keyboard and mouse and also a converter from HDMI to USB-C or a proper cable from HDMI to USB C port that would work without any issues on the MacBook Pro.

Came across this one:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BK2XL2F

Open in new window


Since these converters and cables are cash cows for FBA sellers, there are tons of these on Amazon making it very hard to shortlist.

Any thoughts would be nice. Thanks!

I have a Sharp MX-C300W all-in-one that has the ability to scan to network drives.

The network destination I have set up is on a newer "trashcan" mac running OSX 10.13.4. I have a working user name and password for the share, and am using the server's static IP in the network path.
Scan-Destination.tiff

After setting it all up, it works....that is until the next day I come in to work. Attempting to scan to this same destination after some time has passed throws a CE-04 error code, which apparently means "FTP SERVER ACCOUNT NME OR AUTHENTICATION PASSWORD INPUT ERROR" according to the error code index

The way I solve this every single time is simply by disabling and then instantly re-enabling the SMB sharing  on the Mac. This fixes it every time, until enough time has passed and it breaks again.

Any ideas why this is happening? It is so annoying to have to do this every day. If it's a bug in SMB running on the mac, does anyone know a way I can program the mac to automatically turn SMB sharing on and off automatically each day? Would love some help from the experts!

What's the best way to update Mac mini "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 (Mid-2010) from 10.6.8 to either El Capitan or Sierra or at least something newer than 10.6.8. We do not mind doing fresh install. We have other El Capitan Mac which we could use to create an installation image. Can we just install El Capitan and will it automatically activate and not ask for licence serial number? Will drivers still be available?

Regards,
Tom

Can anyone recommend a Performance Test Benchmark software for Apple Mac's running OS X?

I'd like to measure the Disk/Ram/Disk-Swapping/etc on my current Mac against any scale/benchmark, so that I can go to the Apple store and purchase a new Apple Mac that is at least as fast as my current Mac, or compare the Performance of my other Macs again one another.
