  • 6 s iPhone crashes when you use the keyboard

    Hi guys

    My iPhone (iOS 9.2.1) 6s freezes when I use the keyboard, doesn´t question in what program. After about 10-15 seconds to stop the gel, but only until I have started typing again. The only why to solve the problem is to "quick restart" operating the phone down the sleep and home button and release the home button when the screen goes back to the home screen. I ve already searched the net and tried several solutions, without any effect:

    Full reset


    Disable iCloud for documents

    Disable third party including the emoji keyboard keyboards

    My best guess is that the problem has something to do with the timing of RAM or iCloud phones somehow...

  • Dungeon of virtual keyboard to appear when you use bluetooth keyboard

    I use a surface 3 pro with a keyboard bluetooth as the main method of entry. The recent Firefox update keeps popping up a virtual keyboard of the system on each input field. This is a nice feature to have while no external keyboard is connected. However, it is extremely inconvenient if you have a connected bluetooth keyboard.

    Please would you consider to provide a toggle button to turn this feature off or just to test if a bluetooth keyboard is connected before appearing the virtual keyboard?

    Thank you.

    Hi, if you want to disable this feature, please enter about: config in the address bar of firefox (confirmed the message information where it appears) and search for the preference named ui.osk.enabled. Double-click it and change its value to false.

  • Odd lines/cross appears when you use the vonster vector models

    I'm still learning how to use Illustrator. I was using some patterns vector vonster which is included in a default library of Illustrator, but strange two lines covering the picture as a cross appears, and I can't understand how to remove them. I've been Googling like crazy. In addition, a bonus question, when I move the image around, the model changes - is - it a way to place under the final title, so that I can then freely move and resize? Thank you.


    Above: The two lines meet in the middle.


    Above: A zoom-in where the lines are visible.

    The lines are artifacts of smoothing.

    In Preferences > general disable anti-aliasing and the lines should disappear.

    Usually in offset printing, the lines shouldn't matter. With other technologies like digital print something, they could be a problem. Also when exporting to pixel files.

    For the problem of moving: also in the preferences > General check 'Modes of transformation '.
