Trying for first time ever to print out show notes from one of your shows. The one I want is Episode 150 – How to edit Google videos and Make a Movie. I cannot seem to be able to do this. I don’t get Episode 150 notes, I get the show notes for a entirely different video – Episode 133 which has to do with FB Privacy.
Don’t know if this makes difference but prior to my 1st download attempt today I reinstalled my Dropbox app here on my iPad. I deleted it well over 2, maybe even 3 years ago as I just couldn’t figure it out. It still had photos of my 1st Grandbaby in it so I guess it still is working. However, I couldn’t figure how to copy/download notes (even tho they were wrong Episode notes showing up) AND I saw your note stating no Dropbox acct necessary to get notes so I deleted app again today.
So. I am asking for you to 1) please help me to locate episode 150 show notes and 2) please help me to figure out how to download. Thank you.
uh-oh, my fault. Thanks for the heads up. I fixed it now, the download pdf link in Episode 150 is now correct.
Once you click the download pdf link and see the notes on your screen, you should see a Download button in the upper right. If not, then click the 3-dot menu in upper right and choose Dowload to get them to your computer.
Let me know.
Ah! I just reread your message and noticed that you mention your iPad. That adds one more step – When you first see the PDF box you need to either open the Dropbox app, OR click the button that says Continue to website. When it reaches the website, you should see the actual document and the 3-dot menu in upper right. Click the 3-dots and choose Direct download, then Open in Books. That means the iPad app called Books. It takes a minute, but you should soon see the document.
To see it in the future on your iPad, you would open the Books app, then tap the Library button at the bottom.
Hope that helps.

Yay and yippie! Still took me 3 tries but I finally got them! I already knew how to edit beginning and end of videos but didn’t know about deleting middle parts of a video. Now, thanks to you earlier encouraging us to take firework photos, I needed to learn that ability to put together a movie with stills and video clips of the neighbors firework display. I found the old tutorial showing us how but due to some problems with sound quality, added with the fact that my memory is becoming more and more short-termed, I decided I definitely needed the show notes in front of me to help guide me. Thank you so much!
