Title: Saving Tips
Post by: Marydh on November 04, 2018, 07:49:53 PM
Hi All. 
I've been wondering about the easiest way to keep all the good info that's been posted on the forum.  Candice, I think you mentioned something about documents.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. 
Thanks,
Mary

I use a program, it's free, that's called XNView.  I do a lot of screenshots and save them to folders.

Hi Mary, like Candy I do plenty of screenshots of tips and videos and save them to a folder on my computer. Also use bookmarks to pages and/or links that have gems I think I'll use in the future. The trick for me is labeling the bookmarks so they will make sense to me down the road.

Thanks Kiska.  Yeah I knew about that but I was hoping I could copy then paste into a document folder on my Mac instead of screenshots.

With something on the clipboard, you can use Preview on the Mac to save it as a document. Just select "New from clipboard" from the File menu. In the Save dialog, you can select JPG (the default is PNG which is larger and may not be as convenient , depending on how your stuff is organized.
