  • Saving my Ripperologist

    Yet again I need a bit of technical help if possible. Itís to do with saving my pdf of Ripperologist.

    I have an IPad so I probably need someone who also has one.

    The email arrives, I click on download the pdf and it appears in my Safari memory and I can read it from there no problem. The problem comes when I try and save it anywhere else. Iíve tried 2 options.

    Iíve saved it to my IBooks. This works initially but for some reason, after a fairly short time, the files just disappear. Iíve received the last 6 Ripperologists and have saved them all to IBooks. When I returned to them later there were only 2 saved. So I saved the vanished ones again. Again they disappeared and I still only have two saved. I just canít understand this.

    My second option was to save it to files. I saved it to Ďpages.í To pages itself and to a folder within pages. Both times the file appears but itís like a ghost file. Itís faint and grey and nothing happens when I click on it. Utterly confused.

    So I donít appear to be able to save Ripperologist pdfís on a £900 pad!

    Bear in mind that Iím next to a caveman when it comes to technology so any answers in simple terms please.

    I appreciate any help guys.

    Buy an Android tablet next time, Herlock. They're cheaper, just as functional as an iPad and much less hassle.

    I know that doesn't solve your immediate problem, but I haven't evangelised too often lately

        Saving Ripperologist on an Ipad

        I used to receive Ripperologist issues on my work-provided iPad, and saved them to the device, but not in Pages. I think it was just as PDF files with created names.

        Eventually the work recommended we clear out anything we wanted to keep prior to an update, so I emailed the files to my personal e-address, and opened them on my personal Android tablet.

          Thanks for that Pat I canít see anywhere else to save them though. Iíll try again later on. Itís very annoying though. I just donít understand why they disappear from iBooks ? Or why they save as a unopenable file?

            Michael, if you're having trouble saving the mags, why not just save the emails and open the mags whenever you want? A gmail account has virtually limitless capacity.

              Thanks for that Robert

              It’s just bloody baffling why Ripperologists just vanish from iBooks. I’ve just checked and the new one is still there along with 2 old ones but the other 3 have gone.

              There’s a ghost in the machine!

              I must admit that I miss getting the paper copies in the post. I think that I still have all the paper ones except the very first one.

                Don't you have a laptop or desktop?
                Sure could of got a great laptop or desktop for £900 and at the same time not confining yourself to Apple's walled garden and planned obsolescence, and if you need anymore reasons to avoid Apple check the link.

                These are not clues, Fred.
                It is not yarn leading us to the dark heart of this place.
                They are half-glimpsed imaginings, tangle of shadows.
                And you and I floundering at them in the ever vainer hope that we might corral then into meaning when we will not.
                We will not.

                  Down load an App like Adobe Acrobat or PDF Pro, they are free and your problems will be solved.

                  They will give you the ability to make notes and highlight passages as well.
                  Oh, and they have a word search option too!

                        I once gave advice that turned out to be correct to someone that used to work in IT. I donít think that sheís ever gotten over it! The fact that I mention it every time that I see her doesnít help of course.

                          Dear Kevin, this is a forum, not Twitter. You can use more words and spell things in a way that makes sense. Just saying...
