Medical Spelling Dictionaries for Mac Word and Pages

We have just launched more useful utilities for the Macs word-processors : Medical Spelling Dictionaries for Pages and Mac Word. These both install a custom Medical Dictionary into either Pages of Mac Word. But why…? Well, we have been talking to some of our clients in the medical industry. They have told us that is can be very frustrating when writing medical and health documents.

Why…? Because Pages (and Word) only have very limited spelling dictionaries. This means that a lot of quite common medical terms are shown as mispelt. But they are spelt perfectly correct…! Valuable time has to be spent on checking each word that has a red squiggle on it. Imagine the time that could be saved…!

This is where our Medical Spelling Dictionary comes in. Once Pages and Word have a new, custom spelling dictionary it is very simple to see which words are correctly spelt and which are not.

Medical Spelling Dictionaries for Mac Word and Pages

Most medical spelling dictionaries of this are hard to install. Our dictionaries have a very easy install process, it’s a one-click process. This allows you to save more time and lets you concentrate on writing  you medical / health related documents.

The Dictionaries are installed directly into your Mac, meaning there is no online component to sign up to. Everything is included with the App…!

Features:

  • The wordlist is installed using an easy to use installer and uninstaller
  • Life-time updates, no subscriptions required…!
  • More than 100,000 medical and health related terms
  • Compatible with Pages 4 and Pages 5, and Microsoft Word 2011 and 2015
  • Includes trade and generic names of pharmaceutical and medical products.

Remove iPhone Distractions and Time-wasting websites with Focussu

Just before everyone disappears off on the Christmas break, we have one more thing we would like to announce.

Focussu is a new app that will be launched in 2016 to allow you to focus on your iPhone. While developing apps, we have found that it is too easy to become distracted while using our smartphones. So, Focussu was born.

Remove iPhone Distractions

Focussu allows you to remove annoying and distracting websites from your iPhone. If you never, ever, see that distracting site you will not be tempted to spend hours looking at cat pictures. Or the top 23 annoyances of New Yorkers. Or 10 child actors who are no longer as cute as they used to be. (Time happens to us all…)

We will be launching this App in 2016. Just in time to make sure your 2016 starts off with you achieving your goals. Want to make sure you hold your New Years resolutions…? Then you need to get Focussu on your iPhone or iPad. Focussu is the only productivity app of its type that doesn’t need extra accounts or send your information across the Internet. Stay secure, stay focussed.

Focussu also decreases the amount of time taken for tasks since you will not be side-tracked by “interesting” websites. No loitering over websites that are there just to suck your productivity dry. Websites that are just there to make you dilly-dally your day away. After you get Focussu it will just be you being efficient and getting things done.

The app, Focussu is in the final stages of testing and is nearly ready to go. To be alerted once Focussu is available, head over to www.focussu.com and enter your email address…!

Focussu will be available for the iPad and iPad Pro.

Batch Convert Pages 2006 Documents

Converter for Pages is the only converter that allows you to batch convert Pages 2006 documents. This avoids you having to open each document separately. This saves you a lot of time if you have built up many documents that you need to convert. Of course, the converter can still batch convert Pages 2008 documents. This means that both iWork 2006 and iWork 2008 are supported.

This is also available from Pages Converter, available on the Mac App Store.

Don’t forget, if you have already purchased Converter for Pages, this update is completely free.

Download directly from https://www.talkingcucumber.com/PagesConverter.pkg.zip . Licenses can be purchased from the our website.

OS X 10.11 El Capitan Old iWork Documents Safe Again…!

We are delighted to announce that our iWork Converters are now ready for Apple’s new operating system. OS X 10.11 El Capitan is not yet released but we are ready for it…!

El Capitan Old iWork Files Still Safe..?

Since we are an Apple registered developer we have had access to a preview version of El Capitan. We have now made sure that whenever Apple decide to release the new operating system our users will be able to convert their old iWork documents from iWork 2008 to 2009 and still be able to access them. This includes Keynote, Numbers and Pages.

With El Capitan old iWork documents are therefore available after you upgrade to the new operating system.

AllMyWorkDocs

The Main Features of El Capitan

  • Faster. Apple has made many tweaks to the code of OS X and made your Mac much, much faster.
  • Better support for full-screen. Full-screen mode is very handy for tuning out distractions. Apple has added multi-tasking functions to this.
  • Page pinning in Safari. This allows you to return quickly to your favourite websites.
  • Better note-taking. Taking on Evernote here, El Capitan makes it easier to make notes and remember items.
  • Major Spotlight improvements. Spotlight is the “search” function that OS X incorporates to let you find things. This has been made much easier and more human friendly.

While El Capitan may not have a lot of user facing features, the speed up over OS X 10.10 Yosemite is its self a really good reason to upgrade. And now you can upgrade to El Capitan and know you can still access your old iWork documents…!

While there’s no confirmed release date for El Capitan, you can be reassured that with El Capitan old iWork documents are still safe…!

Two new iWork Upgraders: Converter for Numbers and Converter for Pages

Here at Talking Cucumber, we have been overwhelmed by the response to our Converter for Keynote App. When were having problems converting our Keynote presentations, we thought we were the only people who had this problem. Boy, were we wrong…! It turns out this is a common problem that many of you have.

Since we have helped so many people overcome this, we have decided to help more people. We noticed that the other iWork Apps had the same issue.

iWork Upgraders Make Converting Documents Quick and Easy

So now we are offering two new apps : Converter for Numbers and Converter for Pages. Both work in the same way as Converter for Keynote. Fast, easy and secure upgrading of your iWork documents. In this case they upgrade Numbers spreadsheets and Pages documents.

So, if you are seeing the following warnings, you should give these Apps a try:

Pages-Dialog

Numbers2

Our iWork Converter / Upgraders are the only Apps on the market that do this. It’s really strange that Apple let out this function. But Apple are busy making some amazing products and services, so that’s understandable…!

To recap. Here are links to each Converter/Upgrader, and the files it can handle:

Converter for Keynote can now Batch Convert Keynote Presentations

We are very excited to announce that we have uploaded a new version of “Converter for Keynote”. The main new feature in version 1.0.4 is support for batch migrations of Keynote presentations.  The App can be used to batch convert Keynote presentations. There are also some minor UI bug fixes.

Support for batch migrations has been something that you, our users, have been asking for a few weeks. So we managed to put some time together to implement it. Now multiple Keynote presentations can be selected for conversion. All the presentations will be migrated from Keynote ’08 to Keynote ’09 without you doing a thing…!

How to Batch Convert Keynote Files

From the main screen, simply press the “Open” button and select as many Keynote ’08 files that you would like to convert. Then simply press the “Convert” button to start the conversion process. Names of files that did not convert will be displayed at the end of the process. (Optionally you can choose to be alerted as the conversion takes place.) That’s all there is to it..!

This certainly simplifies the migration procedure if you have many old presentations that need to be converted. No longer do you have to spend hours converting each one. Everything is handled by our App in this one-click conversion.

This update is a free update to our current users.  If Keynote Converter does not pick up the update automatically, use the “Check for Updates” option in the Application menu. Alternatively, press the “Check for Updates Now” button in Preferences.

If you need to buy a license for Converter for Keynote, you can do that here.
