When at school go to the file "save as" option and you should be able to save the wps document into a word format ( using the drop down menu at the bottom to select microsoft word document ) or something along those lines.

You should then be able to use that in pages and email it back to an email account ( that you have or use ) in a word format or maybe save it as a word document.

The other option would be to download and install open office ( http://www.openoffice.org ) and bring the documents from school to home as a word document as per above and use open office to do what you need to do and save it as a word document again and you should be able to do it that way.

Short of that speak with the IT person and see if they can use open office ( pages is a mac only piece of software from what im aware ) so dont think that will be an option at your school where as open office should be as its free.

How to Rip DVD to iTunes for Free


Want to watch movies from your own DVD library on your iPod? With Instant Handbrake, free software for Mac OSX, you can easily make any DVD into an iTunes-compatible movie.<br /> <a href="http://handbrake.fr/">HandBrake</a> is an open-source program designed to convert MPEG video (including DVD-Video) into an MPEG-4 video file in MPEG-4 Part 14 (.mp4) or Matroska (.mkv) containers. The program is used to convert DVDs into other forms so they can be viewed on iPods, iPhones and with the Mac QuickTime Player.<br /> <a href="http://www.rip-dvd-copy.com/images/how-to/handbrake.png"><img src="handbrake.png" /></a><br /> Step by step guide:<br /> 1: Install Handbrake<br /> Simply download the "Windows GUI" from the Handbrake download page then run the installer. It's that simple. If you get a prompt telling you that you don't have the correct version of .Net framework installed, then you'll need to download this from the Microsoft website.<br /> 2: Select your DVD source.<br /> 3: Insert your DVD. You many need to stop the auto-play.<br /> 4: Hit "Continue" in Instant Handbrake. It will begin to scan your DVD.<br /> 5: Select the file you want to convert. For full-length movies, this will be the file with the longest duration. For DVDs of TV Shows, please refer to the "Tips" section.<br /> 6: Select where you want the converted files to be saved to. It's a good idea to save it to your "Movies" folder in Mac OSX.<br /> 7: For the rest of the options on this screen, select H.264 for the "File Format," and for the "Picture Format" select "Original." This will preserve the picture format (wide or full screen) that's on the DVD.<br /> 8: Hit "Convert." The movie will now be converted and saved to the folder you indicated in step six.<br /> 9: Launch iTunes.<br /> 10: Navigate to the folder your movie is saved in and drag the MP4 file into the iTunes Movie Folder.<br /> 11: Hook up your iPod and sync up - or if you manually transfer from iTunes to your iPod, drag the movie on to your iPod. Now you're ready to enjoy your movie on the go!<br /> Tips & Warnings:<br /> If you have a DVD of TV shows, it's recommended that you export each individual show. DVD's have a "Play All" feature, which is all the episodes jammed into one file, this will be the longest duration in the list of files you get in step 5.<br /> You can also export to PSP format if you've got one of those. H.264 is the best quality format for iPod.<br /> Handbrake is a more robust version of Instant Handbrake. The program offers more options, but the concept is the same. This will work on Windows and Linux as well as Mac OSX<br /> Copy protection may prevent DVDs from being converted to iPod format.<br /> More tag info: <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/rip-dvd-to-itunes-free.html">rip dvd to itunes free</a>, <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/">dvd ripper</a>, <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/dvdvideoguide/how-to-rip-copyrighted-dvd.html">How to rip copyrighted dvd</a>.<br />

How to Watch WMV on MAC Easily


<p><span>WMV, Windows Media Video, is a compressed video file format for several proprietary codecs developed by Microsoft. As we know that there are so many videos with wmv formats, sometimes you download them and then open them , but all you get is a lot of crazy code. Are you looking for an easy to watch wmv videos, especially as a mac user ? This article is about how to play WMV files on Mac so that you can watch WMV on a Mac computer, introduces three most popular ways to play WMV videos and some WMV conversion apps.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Tips: If you want to convert WMV videos, a video converter is needed here. <a href="http://www.macvideoconverter.org/">video converter mac</A> can converts video files such as MPEG1, MPEG2, MP4, 3GP, 3G2, AVI, Mpeg, HD video formats including MKV, TOD, MOD, TS, TP and TRP. and output video formats including MOV, FLV, MP4, AVI, and MPG.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>1. Watch WMV on Mac with VLC Media Player</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>VLC is a media player like QuickTime and Windows Media Player. Many view VLC is a good alternative to the these traditional media players because VLC is available for many different operating systems and is an open source software project that is supported by many dedicated programmers across the world.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Until recently, only experimental versions of VLC for Mac OS X could play WMV videos, but no longer. VLC for Mac OS X now supports WMV video. You can download VLC from the VLC media player for Mac OS X download page.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>There are three types of downloads on this page: "Universal Binary", "Intel Package", and "PowerPC Package". The Universal Binary should work on any Mac, the Intel Package is meant for newer Intel-powered Macs, and the PowerPC Package is meant for older Macs that use the PowerPC processor. If you are unsure of whether you've got an Intel Mac or a PowerPC Mac, use the Universal Binary Package.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Once downloaded, double click on the dmg file, wait for a Finder window to open, and then drag the VLC icon to your "Applications" folder. In addition, VLC media Player supports audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>2.

Microsoft no longer maintains or supports their WMP for Mac software, but they still provide it for you to download. You can download the software at Microsoft's website.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>When you go to the Windows Media Player 9 for Mac download page, you'll be given a choice between a .bin file and a .hqx file. If you have an older Mac, you should download the .hqx file. If you don't, then it doesn't really matter. Just make sure you get the English version.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>3. Watch WMV on Mac with Flip 4 Mac</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>As mentioned in the above that Microsoft won't upgrade windows media player 9, Microsoft did offer an alternative for Mac users: Windows Media Components for QuickTime Flip4Mac, which is developed by Telestream. With this QuickTime component, you can play WMV and WMA files directly in QuickTime Player and watch streamed WMV videos.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>If you just want to play WMV files on Mac, you can choose one of the above ways to do it. We recommend VLC player considering its powerful functions. But for converting WMV videos, this video converter mac will be a good choice, it is such an powerful software that it can act as <a href="http://www.macvideoconverter.org/guide/flv-converter-for-mac.html">flv converter for mac</A>, mp3 converter mac, <a href="http://www.macvideoconverter.org/guide/avi-converter-mac.html">avi converter mac</A>, mp4 converter mac, Mac MKV Converter, etc.</SPAN><span></SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN>

Scanning Multiple pages into one pdf


Scanning a multi-page document as a .pdf file reverts the settings for rotation, selected area, etc. to default for any pages after the first page. This applies to Mac OSX 10.3, 10.4, & 10.5. A simple, but tedious work-around is to scan each page as a separate file and easily recombine them using OSX Preview. Just open the first page, view the Sidebar, and drag-drop the additional page files into the sidebar. Save and it's all one multi-page .pdf.

Font misbehavior


Melissa, try saving your Microsoft Word document as a standard ASCII text only document (File > Save As), then use that new non-Word document to copy and paste. This avoids all the strange text formatting and problem codes from Word. Format your text in Dreamweaver and perhaps try using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for formatting your pages.
Best of luck!
