Applications :: Sorting PDF Documents - Ability To Combine All The Records
May 29, 2009
At work I receive various medical records for clients. It would be helpful to take a stack of medical records from a specific doctor, scan them into PDF's, and then tag each page of the stack with the name of the provider and date of service. Then, as additional records come in from various providers, and I repeat the process, I would hope to have the ability to combine all the records if need be sort the entire set of records by date, or if I choose to have them sort by provider. I know it would require some manual tagging but overall I think would save a great deal of time. I cant find a single program that will enable me to do this. I'm looking to have the ability to quickly rearrange the pages of a pdf file based on tags or labels that I add.
I seem to have lost the ability to save to, or open documents from, iCloud (Pages, Numbers, and Keynote). When I try to open a file I get the following box: URL....There is no iCloud option. Same for when I am trying to save. I am signed into iCloud. I have checked Documents & Data and each iWork app. How do I get my iCloud stuff back?
So far this is my set up. M- Audio Fast Track connected to my Heil PR40 via usb. This is what I use for podcasting with GB and all is well on that front. In iMovie however, my VO only records on the left track and not in stereo. It sounds ok for being on one channel but I would like to have it stereo.
Does Keynote have the ability to work in a Portrait Layout?
I know that Microsoft's PowerPoint gives you the ability to work in either Portrait or Landscape. I can't seem to find anything about this for Keynote. Therefore, I am assuming that it does not exist. Please don't tell me that I don't need it.
As you can see I have lost the ability to create a ringtone in Garageband, was this a nerf in a update I missed? I'm using Garageband 3.0.5 (104.10) and iTunes 8.1.1 (10). Does anyone else have the same problem? I'm away from another Mac to check its not just a one off anomaly.
What I'd like is for a function that can sort the categories into individual columns for the categories. So that this big list of purchases I have is sorted out into their own column that matches the category and then sums it too. Does this make sense? I was sort of avoiding any VBA for this but if thats how it has to be done then thats cool
I have imported an album from CD but iTunes INSISTS that track one is one album, and tracks 2-4 are another - though it gives both albums the same name. So the "second" album has tracks 2-4 of 4 and the first, 1 of 4. I have done all the usual stuff, selected them all and bulk changed / retyped artist, album name , cover art etc. Anything I might be missing?
Does Apple Mail have ability to paste boiler plate text? In MS Office Windows I used to setup many boiler plate texts that I would access through keyboard shortcuts, such as Control H for "Please don't hesitate to contact me." Can Mail do a similar thing?
I have a bunch of episodes of The Office, but I want to sort them by Episode. Which is it? In Get Info there's "Episode Number" and "Episode ID" episode number seems to be the definite one for labeling which appears first in the season (what I want to do), but there's no option to display it in the normal showing screen. There is for Episode ID, but it doesn't seem to be the right one.
I've set up Rules and they work if I go to Messages/Apply Rules and click each of the rules. However, it does not apply the rules if I click All Rules at the head of that list. Someone advised me to check the boxes of each Rule under Tools/Rules so they would be applied when mail arrives, but that doesn't work. All of those boxes are checked and the rules are not applied when mail arrives.
1. Any idea how to make rules apply as mail arrives? 2. If that's not possible, do you know how to make "all rules" work so I don't have to highlight and click through each of the several rules?
I am having trouble sorting my itunes library. I have numerous different songs by different artists (i.e 700+ lil wayne songs). What I would like to do is sort my entire library alphabetically by artist. Then, I want each artists songs to be alphabetized. Its just way to hard to look through 700 shuffled songs from one artist.
For some reason iTunes messes up my complaitions if I sort the albums by anything else than "album", such as year. It "breaks" the compilations up (you know what I mean) even if the year is the same. The weird thing is that some (up to 3 I've seen) tracks keep in bundles (even despite having different artists). Also, if the album stays "intact" by some wonder when I sort by year, the track order usually becomes totally random... (14, 4, 2, 13, 3, etc).
Yes, they are marked as compilations. Yes, album artist is the same (blank field). No, there are no typos.
As a disclaimer, I'm on a Windows machine. Can anyone tell me how to set the "sort by year" a default? It's pain to re-set it every time I launch iTunes.
Ever since my old Marantz amp died I've been unable to listen to records. I've been listening to CDs through my Klipsch ProMedia GMX 2.1 speakers which sounded fine until the bass amp blew recently. So now I have no amp and no speakers.
Over the years, I have amassed GBs worth of music, spread over many different iTunes libraries, as a result of having desktops, laptops, replacement machines etc. When I first started my collection, I stupidly "let iTunes manage my library" which has resulted in all my tracks being put into thousands of different folders because iTunes likes to create a separate folder for each artist. I was wondering if there was any way of exporting all my music in the iTunes database to a new location, organized by album. eg. A State of Trance 2010 Yearmix being exported to a folder called that, not each of the 80 tracks going into a separate artist folder.
If this can be done, I'm hoping to consolidate my music collection into one library, once and for all! It's probably worth noting that I'm now on Windows, but I thought I would ask here as iTunes is an Apple product. I have access to a Mac should I need to do anything "Mac-specific" to make this happen. Tune up looks like a promising piece of software. However, it only seems to clean up the music files themselves, not their organization within my music folder. Does anyone have any experience with it? Sorted! I'm sure there are loads of people out there that would like me reorganize the file structure of their music after iTunes obliterates it...so here's what I did.
1) Downloaded Songbird. What a great application! It has addons! 2) Went into the applications options. (Tools >> Options) 3) Selected the 'Manage Files' tab. 4) Ticked the box to 'Allow Songbird to manage files'. In the 'Structure Folders' section underneath I changed it to 'Album/Song Files'. 5) Clicked OK at the bottom to save changes and Songbird then wizzed through my collection and put all my music into Album folders! 6) Uninstall iTunes.
Since installing iTunes 7, all of my Various Artists Soundtrack albums are now all broken up. For instance, 5 songs might be grouped together, and then another 4 songs grouped together elsewhere, even though all of them are labeled the same. Any idea on the proper way to label them to keep them all together?
Alright, so I have two songs by The Beatles, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and With a Little Help from My Friends. If you don't already know, these songs cut into each other, so if you play With a Little Help right after Sgt. Pepper, it will sound like one song (this was intended). What my problem is is that the way that the songs are sorted (by Artist), With a Little Help from My Friends is before Sgt. Pepper, where it should be vice-versa. Is there any way I can fix this problem, without having to change the way the songs are sorted (I like them organized that way) or creating a playlist? Maybe an Applescript or application?
I have a lot of mp4 files; vmovies, TV shows, music video's, everything. But, when I load them into iTunes they all show up under the movies tab, and I can't find a way to move them to different categories.
I have noticed for some reason in my contact it lists my work information before my home stuff. Normally I would not care but the autocomplete Safari uses always pull the first information. I deleted the person in the address book and readed in the order I want but it still fails.
Recently I went on a trip and am looking to arrange my photos by the date taken, i know on my camera it embeds the time taken into the photo file, and i was wondering if there was any easy way to arrange the photos so they are in chronological order?
My wife and I recently purchased our third Mac system (iMac). She is an aspiring photographer. We have our oldest family pictures (most in iphoto) being moved to the IMac from our Mac Mini and also her DSLR photos from our Macbook to the IMac as well. (she uses lightroom/photoshop). The problem we are running into is we have probably about 100GB in photos and I know there are many duplicates. The problem is the pictures are mixed formats (jpeg and raw) and some are the originals and some are edited. I'd like to get some sort of program(s) that could remove duplicates (if there is a dup in JPG and RAW, I'd like to keep the raw) and maybe group (its asking alot, I know) up the edited photos.
I prefer seeing my music list sorted by artist's last name. I have gone through and changed all of the Sort Artist fields to lastname, firstname. The new iTunes update has broken this view. When using the Artists column view, Al Green and Adam Sandler are now listed in the goddamn A's.
