Except Keynote is not dumbed down and it's far better than Powerpoint, and it's been this way for well over 10 years.
The larger screen sizes of the Pro line easily affords Pencil potential. It's relatively the same size as Field Notes - which I use daily. I'm in the camp that would enjoy Pencil support on iPhone.I wonder if the iPhone 12 will support pencil soon , or maybe a iPhone similar to the note series ?
I should have been more clear - PC users often say that Apple’s productivity apps are dumbed down versions of MS’s apps, whether that is true or not. I know that Numbers is definitely not as robust as Excel, but what I work on doesn’t require pivot tables or other highly complex formatting, so it’s a non-issue for me. I’ve probably made a dozen Keynote presentations in the past 10 years, to give you an idea of just how little I use it.Well I was only posting a rebuttal to your post stating that Powerpoint was better than Keynote when it simply isn't true by a long shot.
Shared collaboration. It doesn’t work unfortunately, we need to add data as fast as possible and forms makes it way easier that adding a row to a table and enter data cell by cell. Forms on a shared document would make out life much easier.Is this with shared collaboration turned on within Numbers? Or just the file in a shared folder? I think only iOS has forms. Numbers Mac doesn’t have forms even on my not shared spreadsheet that I just tested. The sheets I share with my employees don’t have forms in them but I’m going to add one and test it out tomorrow.
There, I said it, the thing we were all thinking. Handwriting recognition was, is, and will always be a TERRIBLE way to input data into a device.
This is at least better than Newton, because it has a keyboard you can use like a sane person.
Handwriting recognition is a bug, not a feature.
It really does seem like scribble is for adding data only and not removing it. You can scribble out a whole word but that’s about it. I did find out that you can circle a word to select it. Still single characters are not possible.
Since it seems you primarily have to work with Excel spreadsheets, is there a reason not to just use Excel? Seems like they would have Office 365 credentials for their employees to use?For the files i work numbers is a pretty enough software but my issue is we are using pc in the company and it is ms office installed. There is no pc version of numbers and All files i get i edit from collegues are excel files. So compability is the key answer.
in comparisan google spreadsheets offers far better compability than numbers with ms files.
Yeah, I searched through the help document in Numbers and it specifically says that forms don’t work on shared sheets. Such a strange choice on Apple’s part.Shared collaboration.
