Veho USB microscope My instruction posted on Amazon

Instructions for Veho VMS—400 USB microscope

I write this as a professional microbiologist. This microscope is excellent but, at first, it seems impossible to use at high power [400x] because of inadequate instructions. I recommend practising on a simple flat object like a small piece of printed paper. Press the microscope firmly down onto it [or put the object into the lens cap] and focus at 20x. Now use the focus wheel to change to high power by rotating anticlockwise as far as it will go from that 20x position and then very slowly moving back until focus is achieved. [Note that it looks as if it should be possible to rotate a short distance from the 20 mark to the 400 mark on the focussing wheel. This is not the case. It is necessary to turn the wheel in the opposite direction to the 400 mark.]
As others have commented it is difficult to focus at 400x because the depth of field is small, the contrast is low and it is difficult to hold everything steady.  This is not a fault of this microscope; it is true for the best professional instruments which overcome the problem by being very heavy, having precision engineered platforms for moving the object and special lighting systems (e.g. phase contrast). With the VMS-400 I recommend practicing focussing on a simple object as described above; it also may help to fix it to a heavy base or to place the object in the transparent lens cap. For smaller objects it is helpful to press them between glass slides for viewing at high power.

Publisher

Publisher/ Blank/A4/pagelayout/page design/insert table/table tools

Save as: Any format – Word,  PDF, Jpeg, html.
So probably best to do everything in publisher then Save as required for printing and for Webpage.

1.Select the cells you want to change.
2.Right-click the table, and then click Format Table.
3.The Format Table dialog box will appear.
4.Under Line, select the options you want, and then click OK.

Insert table, choosing numbers of columns and rows.
Rt Clk; Select/select table [or cells]
Rt Clk: Format Table:  choose fill and borders

Table Tools/Layout/ Merge cells, add, split, guidelines etc etc
Add pictures.
Can just insert picture
OR Insert/picture place holder
Put it where you want pic. Insert picture. It will fit in one of the dimensions if it is too big for the place holde

Sugggest. Make table with borders colour gray so not to be too intrusive. Have spare cells between to write bits in. At end can remove borders if wanted.

NB: to edit table just click on it and the table tools/layout will appear
Table borders. Table design/ all borders
Margins. Page design.
Picture place holder. Insert one; adjust to size of table cell; copy and paste into all other cells. Save as template for future pages.

NEW stuff
New page;  Blankk A4;  Page design; Margins – narrow or none.
Insert Table. Block in 3 column and 9 rows. Then minimise the rows for text . Fill up page with the Table so that each cell is size required. [I want square].
Select Table; Table Tools; Design; Select line width; colour; all borders. This is sometimes odd but it is possible to get all borders correct. Block all cells first. May have to juggle with sequence of Width, All and Colour.
For bird pictures make border wide and grey.
Insert Picture place holder. Fit this into first cell so it overlaps the wide border. Copy and past into all the cells.
Insert picture. It is usually organised so that it fits top and bottom. The sides poke out. Select the picture and move it around to get part required then Crop. To see original pic after cropping [to change it etc] then Rt cllk picture and menu shows Crop – clk and it shows pic. Move then crop again.
Select all pictures Ctl clk on each; Send backward. The edges are then neatly hidden behind the frames.

Alternative: to avoid large text rows. Do as above but Only use 5 rows. The top is for title. Now each cell will be about square. Place picture holder in cell but leave space at bottom of holder to write in text later.
Roy suggestion.  Make picture box of right size. Then test box beneath. Lock 2 together. Put frame around. Copy and line up on page.

Excel

EXCEL SORTING

To avoid confusion do not use the small icons for sorting - except for very simple tasks where columns do not need ot be linked.

Use Data/sorting.
Block the section to be sorted (by clicking on the numbers on left.
TO LEAVE HEADINGS then just block the rest of the data to be sorted below.

Click on the column or part of it to be sorted eg column B may be course taken. Sort this and then block the rows with same subject (for example) and then click column A to sort alphabetically.

Welcome to iCloud. The Apple ID for your iCloud account is c.anthony@soton.ac.uk and it’s what you’ll use to get your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and PC set up. Just follow these instructions and you’ll be up and running in no time. 
Once iCloud is set up, it stores your content and wirelessly pushes it to all your devices. For example, buy a song with iTunes on your computer, and it will appear on your iPod touch and iPad. When you snap a photo on your iPhone it will automatically be sent to your iPad. You can start creating a Pages document on your iPhone, and put the finishing touches on it from your iPad. There’s no need to dock or sync to your computer. With iCloud, it just works.

For pdf and word etc: Turn on ipad and connect to computer.
Open iTunes.  Go to Devices Christopher. Select Apps at the top.
Scroll down page to File sharing. This will show a list of apps including the Office and Documents. But for pdf should use Adobe reader as this gives many options during reading – essential if the document is long (eg my reviews or books).
For videos use OPlayerlite. Do as above and drag videos there.

First make  folder called ipad in Exporer on computer and put pics there. Then transfer from there.
