I only use about a dozen programs, BBedit, Microsoft Office, Scrivener, Safari, Chrome, Photoshop, preview, transmit, Mac X video converter and the only one that has changed a lot is Photoshop. But I am only doing simple things like cropping and resizing so there is not much of a learning curve.
But Panorama has been my life for 20 years, It’s my business to update the databases and to analyze golf information via my Panorama databases. So in 20 years I have about 20 different golf databases to help me and they have forumla’s and I use a lot of lookups from other databases which are hard to figure out how they run in Pan X. Christ it took me an hour to figure out on to Propagate and I still don’t know how to look up something in another database.
I took the class and found it tough to keep up, because 95% of the stuff you taught had nothing to do with how I use Panorama. But in the scheme of things I am probably not doing much in Panorama compared to the others who were in your class. They have to learn how to do it period, while I just have to learn the elements that I am using.
One big difference now is that before in building my stuff, I learned off of the documentation, along with getting good at thinking of easier ways of doing things over the years, but that is because of years of using it.
I am trying to learn in a couple of weeks what took me 10 years to learn.
I will get it, I see the potential of Pan X. But I am 60 years old and it’s harder to find the patience to learn something like this.
I do thank you for having tools like this forum and I guess for the time being this is going to be the way I learn, by asking what to you folks may be some really stupid, dumb questions. I need to figure it out because time is running out on using Pan 6, it probably will be ok in Sierra but come next September with another update it will be like playing Russian Roulette, that bullet will come up and the time is coming fast.
So hate to say you will probably have a couple of really dumb questions from me (along with an occasion bitch), I don’t mean to be this way but until I grasp it please have patience with me.
One thing that would be worth the money for me, you should figure out a way of having a weekly workshop like you did the video class last year. I would pay for something in which we can submit our problems and we will be able to get the answers via someone showing us how to do something.
I can go on forever on several topics that I am trying to figure out that is different, things like lookup and some formulas that are different in Pan X like the change command.
