Apple’s Calculator app, included in OS X, is a handy tool for performing both quick calculations as well as more advanced functions. When calculating several numbers at once, however, it can become tedious to keep track of them, especially if you make a mistake at some point in the sequence.

Thankfully, Apple includes a paper tape feature that many new (and even some veteran) Mac users have not yet discovered. To display your paper tape, press Command – T or go to Window > Show Paper Tape.

Apple OS X Calculator Show Paper Tape

A paper tape window will appear next to your calculator and will proceed to keep track of and display previous calculations and results.

Here, for example, we’ll add up some receipts from a business trip. As we enter each dollar amount and press Return, the calculation and its solution are displayed from top to bottom in the paper tape window. If a mistake is made, or if you need to stop entering calculations to tend to something else, the paper tape makes it easy to go back to the last correct calculation and resume from there.

The paper tape will also keep track of multiple calculations as they are performed, allowing you to easily reference, or carry forward, previous results. Once all of your calculations are complete, press “Clear” at the bottom of the paper tape window to clear all entries.

Addition is most basic example of the benefits of the paper tape. Its value is enhanced further as more advanced calculations are performed.

So if you’ve ever found yourself jotting down numbers in TextEdit or, heaven forbid, on a piece of paper, stop and immediately turn on Calculator’s paper tape function!

As part of its AGM, GDC BC is proud to present the western Canada premiere screening of Carl Dair at Enschedé: The Last Days of Metal Type.

The film is a recently reworked version of the 1957 film shot by Canadian design pioneer Carl Dair while he was studying type making in Holland with one of the last great European letter engravers, Paul Rädisch. The film reveals the beauty and skill involved in this obsolete art form and adds to the world’s body of knowledge on making typefaces.

Come for the AGM, stay for the film. See you there!

A networking event combined with the chapter’s annual general meeting

Nobody likes a boring meeting. For that reason, we’re spicing things up at the GDC Manitoba Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, April 6.

Illustrator Sam Posnick will kick things off at 7 p.m. with this year’s first GDC Embark. She has presented at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg in the past, so we know a little bit about her history of switching from a design job in an office to running her own business. The informal nature of GDC Embark will allow some time to explore the details of how an artistic entrpreneur makes it work in today’s economy and there will be a question and answer session.

GDC Embark has been a successful networking event in the past, bringing keynote speakers and design professionals together to discuss how creative careers can take off. The format was devised by Kevin Guether CGD and – up until now – was held in the cosy library room at Bailey’s. This time, we’re at Fools & Horses Coffee, located at 379 Broadway.


Once the Embark discussion has run its course, we’ll transition to the AGM portion of the evening, which will include reports from the current members of the board. All GDC Manitoba members will be asked to vote on a motion to extend the current executives’ terms by one year, which (if passed) will align the executives’ terms with those of GDC National and other chapters.

From May 12- June 11, 2011 the gallery will be featuring twenty paintings by Pari based on the poetry of two contemporary Persian master poets, Shafii Kadkani and Sohrab Sepehri. Pari’s visual narration and interpretation of these words creates an aesthetic language of form and colour, conveying the paralleled great beauty, compassion and wisdom between her paintings and the poems. Nature and poetry have always been the most important inspirations in Pari’s art which is evident through the light, transparency and vibrancy in her paintings.
