Keynote is basically a page layout program. All of the iWork apps are good at page layout.I’m not sure that particular task is possible in Numbers. To be fair, I’ve never tried to do it in Pages, either.I retract my statement.

That may be a subsidiary of the manufacturer, but it's a financial service company that owns the machine.

It is deeply inappropriate for governments to get this granularly invasive in industrial product design. Moronic is the better way to describe it.It does give me pause that last year alone, chargers obsoleted by new phones apparently accounted for ELEVEN TONS of garbage in the EU.It's eleven THOUSAND tonnes (the difference between the metric and the mediaeval units is close enough to make ballpark figures interchangeable) through unused/obsoleted chargers per year in the EU, though that figure is not limited to phone chargers.Estimates are that this legislature will reduce e-waste by about 1000 tonnes per year within the EU. Since this will likely drive standardisation globally, and not just within the EU, the effects will be considerable — if just a drop in the ocean of total waste.
