macbikegeek @rsidneysmith Great, thanks! Wasn’t going to make it but it was an interesting, most non-linear day. So this is my treat. #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:03:16

rsidneysmith @macbikegeek Well, glad you could make it! I’m not sure it will be a large crowd as we just returned, but interesting nonetheless. #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:04:32
rsidneysmith Q1: How often and how do you do graphics layout (documents, flyers, etc.)? #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:05:06
macbikegeek @rsidneysmith A1 at least monthly flyers for our houseconcert series. #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:06:42
macbikegeek @rsidneysmith Lee Herman, GTD practitioner, Mac enthusiast, computer consultant @SASsoftware (all ideas my own), geek, bicyclist #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:07:35
macbikegeek @rsidneysmith success: doing daily reviews almost daily, working on mega reset weekly review getting all clear #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:08:23
rsidneysmith A1: All kinds of document layout for clients as well as event flyers. #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:08:37
macbikegeek @rsidneysmith A1b a little bit online, too, though it’s very basic. also HTML in MailChimp for house concert emails. #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:09:55
rsidneysmith Q2: What tools, techniques and tricks have you used to get documents designed? #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:10:05
rsidneysmith @macbikegeek that’s definitely an area people need to handle also when it comes to document layout! #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:10:40
rsidneysmith A2: I rely on StockLayouts .com and other templates I’ve created over the years to consolidate my workflows. #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:11:14
macbikegeek @rsidneysmith A2: my high-end pricey layout software: Apple Pages in layout mode. MailChimp HTML. Use previous one as template. #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:11:39
rsidneysmith @macbikegeek I go back and forth between Adobe InDesign, Scribus (open source), LibreOffice (open source), and Word. #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:12:29
macbikegeek @rsidneysmith templates are really key for ongoing or repeated things on a schedule #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:12:47
macbikegeek @rsidneysmith forgot about work: Word documents/templates from company brand site, both as is and with my prior topic content #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:14:10
rsidneysmith @macbikegeek Absolutely! I’ve created templates for every kind of document (letterhead, business cards and such) for printing. #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:14:27
macbikegeek @rsidneysmith I don’t need InDesign for what I do at work, Pages is better for my own stuff than Word. Have to look at Scribes. #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:15:35
macbikegeek @rsidneysmith I don’t need InDesign for what I do at work, Pages is better for my own stuff than Word. Have to look at Scribes. #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:15:35
macbikegeek @rsidneysmith oops, Scribus #spellcheck #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:16:08
macbikegeek @rsidneysmith though scribes would be good – talk about a personal assistant! ;-) #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:16:46
MultiplyingGood Thanks for that tip @rsidneysmith. @canva comes in handy at times too. #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:17:02
rsidneysmith @macbikegeek I have not used Pages enough, but I definitely need to spend more time with it. #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:17:23
rsidneysmith @MultiplyingGood @canva I’ve definitely used Canva for photo editing and design, but not documents…yet! Great app! #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:18:23
rsidneysmith @MultiplyingGood @canva And, welcome, Mark, back to #prodchat! How’re you today? 25/06/2015 01:18:52
rsidneysmith @macbikegeek Yes, I need more scribes! Hahaha. #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:19:16
macbikegeek @rsidneysmith Pages layout mode is a real layout tool for the rest of us. Simple and intuitive drag and drop. #prodchat 25/06/2015 01:19:17
