Step 1: Configure the apple script

Okay so before you start printing like there was no tomorrow from you ipad you have to set up a few things. The first thing you need to set up is the apple script you downloaded from the link in the intro.

to get to the apple script go to the file that you downloaded you have to unzip the file pergamail.zip.

unzip it.

then opened the folder and open right click or control+click for you apple mighty mouse users on the apple script and open it with Apple script editor.

look at images for help on editing the apple script to work. sorry non members.

Could you help me please? I bought a Polaroid S7 pad. (I'm sort of computer ignorant).
Anyway, I want to use it to download and read books offline. I've got a nook library, didn't like the nook. I can't open up my books with the Polaroid. Do you have any experience with these devices? Thanks
