I've placed a number of PDFs in an InDesign document but with tightly constrained text boxes, meaning that much of the text in the PDF is essentially overset. I then export that InDesign as its own PDF. My problem is that text that is overset on the placed PDF pages is still searchable. Is there a setting somewhere in Acrobat or InDesign that would solve this problem?!?< [more inside]
I'm looking for a new setup for writing fiction online - I've been using Zoho Docs, but it got rather bloated and slow with long files. Most of all I want something that will load quickly and let me write on various Windows 10 computers and Android devices with the ease of scribbling in a paper notebook. Other items on my wishlist: [more inside]

Is there any way to set up a non-Exchange Outlook mailbox and be able to use and store personal mail on my work computer? We use Exchange and I'd like to avoid having personal mail on the company server, but still be able to use Outlook.

I have no audio on my Roku 3, except through headphones. I had not previously plugged headphones in, but I can now get audio through them, but not through the TV speakers. I turned off power to the Roku and restarted that way. I hit the Reset button and restarted that way. I took the batteries out of the remote, re-paired the remote with the Roku. None of that fixed the problem. Ideas?
We have just replaced the toner in our Samsung M2070W printer. Now somehow the inner cover (the bit that covers the area where the toner cartridge sits) will no longer close. It can be pushed down partially, but then there is some kind of resistance that prevents it from closing all the way. How can we make it close? [more inside]
Now that people are putting sustained arguments into twitter threads, sometimes I want to save these off. Is there anything that will allow me to click on a long twitter thread and save the whole lot for future reference? [more inside]

I already know the answer will be "you can't do this without the app." I don't want that answer. I don't have an app on windows+chrome and it works fine. I want to know exactly what I need to do to chrome to make it play on android, or, exactly what is missing from chrome+android that precludes it from working. (For e.g. Chrome for Android doesn't support required FeatureX.) [more inside]

Excel experts: How can I filter this range so that I only pull records with red cells (these were originally blank)? This is a pivot table that I converted back into a range. Alternatively, is there a way I can filter my original pivot table so that it only displays records with blank entries? Thanks in advance!
I have a seldom-used 500g dmg file in DropBox that's not mirrored on my drive. I need to grab it for a sec, but don't have room on my hard drive, so I'm downloading to an external drive. But I haven't been able to complete the d/l in Safari or Chrome (for reasons explained below). [more inside]
I’ve been given an unused Apple AirPort Express. Great! Maybe I can finally network my printer and print wirelessly from it. Given the specifics of my current WiFi configuration, can you help me figure out the best and/or easiest way to do this? [more inside]

Mom has a new Windows 10 laptop, which she'll use primarily for email (Gmail), photos, and occasional browsing. She's asked me to transfer over some files and 'set it up' for her. I'm no IT-talkin' guy & find Win 10 fairly straightforward, but I was wondering if you had some program recs (Security, browsers & extensions) for less-savvy user. Bonus points if they're on Ninite & offer painfree updates that won't freak mom out with "Your security is about to expire! Upgrade to Premium NOW!" messages. Also, recs for free non-fussy remote viewing/desktop sharing would be appreciated and save a lot of "Do you see a red button with an X?" phone conversations for my sister and I.
