Take Control of Numbers by Sharon Zardetto Aker( )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Get serious with Numbers, Apple's powerful spreadsheet for the Mac! Apple's Numbers has become a grown-up spreadsheet (and it's free on every Mac sold since October 2013!), but many of us still haven't learned even the basics, much less been able to take advantage of its surprisingly deep collection of features. With the advice in this 330-page ebook, you'll learn to input, calculate, sort, filter, format, and chart your data with ease, as author Sharon Zardetto guides you through the basics all the way to power-user features like conditional highlighting, custom data formats, and star ratings. Richly illustrated with hundreds of annotated screenshots, the ebook also includes a hands-on example spreadsheet you can use to try what you're learning, plus a special tutorial chapter that helps you put it all together. Of course, you can also treat the book as a reference, using the Quick Start to focus on a topic of interest. The book covers Numbers 3.5, which works on any Mac running OS X 10.10 Yosemite. You'll learn how to... Handle the basics: Input data into a table. Choose the best chart type for your data. Add, modify, and position shapes, such as arrows, comments, and text boxes. Import/export from Excel, text, CSV, and older versions of Numbers. Set up page numbers and other header/footer information for printing. See what you want to see: Know what to expect when you sort by column. Hide and show columns. Merge and unmerge cells. Create rules that filter data to display only specific rows. Set up and view interactive charts. Make formulas: Work fluidly in the formula editor to create formulas. Make formulas from the tear-off tokens on the Quick Calc bar. Nimbly use various types of cell references in formulas. Understand how to use IF, TRUE, and FALSE in formulas. Take charge of logical operators (AND, OR, NOT) in formulas. Concatenate and break apart text. Strip extra spaces out of data. Find medians, modes, ranks, percentiles, and more. Create clever formulas that can: Calculate a sales discount based on whether a total is over or under a certain amount. Sort seemingly unsortable data, such as items described as Poor, Good, or Excellent. Take a column of cells, with each cell containing a full name, and move all the last names into a different column. Apply formatting: Add and remove grid lines and cell borders. Work with a cell's background fill. Format a chart so it looks fabulous. Set up conditional highlighting that appears only when data meets certain criteria. Ensure accurate data entry with cell formats like sliders, menus, and checkboxes. Use and create templates. Format faster with character, paragraph, list, shape, and table styles

Take control of Spotlight for finding anything on your Mac by Sharon Zardetto Aker( )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Join Sharon Zardetto as she explores the hidden depths of Spotlight searching, one of Mac OS X's most powerful yet least explained features. No matter how carefully you organize files and folders on your Mac, it's easy to lose important items. With Sharon's help, you can aim Apple's Spotlight quickly and precisely, and stop rummaging around in the darkness of your hard disk. After Sharon explains how Spotlight indexes your data and the "grammar" behind Spotlight searches, you'll discover the many ways you can start Spotlight searches: the magnifying glass in the menu bar, the search field in Finder windows or the Open and Save dialogs, a keyboard shortcut, a contextual menu, or the customized and saved searches you've made for yourself. Then it's on to learning how to find exactly what you're looking for using keyword searches, multiple-criteria searches, Boolean searches, and more. And here's where you'll learn the most valuable lesson about Spotlight, which Apple has never shared, which is how to search directly using Spotlight's internal search language, making even complex searches quick and easy. You'll learn these search-related techniques: Improve search accuracy by limiting Spotlight to searching just where you want. Reduce result clutter by choosing which categories should appear in the Spotlight menu. Learn what to do when the Spotlight menu doesn't list an item that it should be able to find. Use criteria bars (and even the elusive Boolean bars!) to create complex search queries. Bypass criteria bars by typing complex, powerful queries in any Spotlight search field. Build Boolean searches with AND, OR, and NOT to narrow your search results precisely. In addition, you'll find out how to make your files even easier to find with these techniques: Customize a file's metadata. Employ free third-party utilities to give your files useful, searchable tags. Set up sophisticated smart folders that provide dynamic file organization. In these days of terabyte drives, your Mac has enormous storage capacity, and you may have many thousands of files squirreled away (we don't even want to admit to how many hundreds of thousands of files are filling up our disks!). But with the Spotlight expertise you'll gain from this ebook, you'll be able to retrieve anything on your Mac, no matter how deeply it's buried or how specific you need to make your search (how about every GarageBand song in the key of E-flat, or every graphic that's smaller than 500 by 500 pixels?)

Sure, nearly anyone can get around well enough on the Web in Safari. But Apple has been improving Safari for years, and it has a treasure trove of features that most people never notice. No one ferrets out those features - and their shortcuts - better than Sharon Zardetto. She wrote this ebook to help you use Safari faster, smarter, and better than ever before. You'll start your advanced Safari education by customizing your environment, especially its toolbar, bookmarks, and top sites. Then you'll explore key browsing techniques, including how to access sites you've visited in the past quickly, load multiple Web pages at once, and sync open tabs among your Apple devices. You'll also find advice on how to go beyond the basics for searching both the Web in general and any page you're viewing, fill out forms, automatically, manage stored passwords, keep pages around to read later, and discover the most worthwhile extensions that expand Safari's feature set. Specifically, you'll learn how to: Load any link into a new tab or window, or into your Reading List. Organize your enormous bookmark collection. Unearth a page in your history, even it's not bookmarked or in your Reading List. Read a multi-page, ad-ridden article in a reader-friendly layout. Prevent snoops from tracking where you've been on the Web. Update a password that Safari has stored. Learn how to make Safari fill in most forms for you. Expand too-small text fields for easier typing and editing. Add pages to your Reading List for later perusal, whether online or offline, and even on a separate device. Block ads, zoom images, show passwords as you type, and more with helpful Safari extensions.<p class="quote">What about compatibility? Safari 6 runs in 10.7 Lion and 10.8 Mountain Lion, but its feature set is slightly restricted in Lion, and Sharon points out the differences.
