    These days your PC is a complex critical and essential piece of infrastructure to help keep your home and business operating successfully. And like any complex system, it can suffer from all sorts of ailments akin to heart attacks, strokes, hypertension, obesity and viral infections. That's why we need PC Doctors. This month we are especially fortunate to have Toni Cassidy from Audio Visual Metro at Belgrave to come and speak to us about what she does and how she may be able to help any of us with PC hardware and software issues. Toni Cassidy has over 30 years experience in computer hardware and software and has been consumer focused since 1993 offering advice and consultancy, as well as networking, system builds and hardware and software repair/optimisation. She intends to draw on her experience with Windows 10, optimal hardware for graphics and games as well as upgrades.

    • Sick PC?

  • 8:20pm Refreshments, Raffle & Door Prize Draws

  • 8:30pm Getting the Most from Font Manager - David Mutch

    In 2017 Corel introduced a completely revised, rebuilt-from-scratch version of Font Manager into the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite to replace the aging 3rd-party application from previous versions of CDGS. It is vastly much better with many, many new and better features and can allow Draw and PP to use all of the fonts on your system, even those that are not installed. For many people who knew how to use the older version well, however, it can be a bit of a challenge to know and understand how best to use the new Font Manager. But it is definitely worth doing as the advantages, once known, far outweigh any disadvantages one may find while transitioning. This month David will show you how to get the best out if the new Font Manager: How to organise your fonts, how to use Filters, how to display specific fonts and families, how to speed up the use of Font Manager and discuss the many advantages of using the new version over the old.
