Bixa - Before I start my next photo presentation on 'Old-Fashioned Roses at Mottisfont Abbey'.... I would be grateful if you could direct me to your instructions for Saving a Copy on Word....I have never got around to doing this. I'm not sure how to embed my pictures onto the document. Sorry to bother you.
Oh heavens, Spindrift ~~ it's hardly a bother! You know how much I admire your wonderful threads and the care you take in putting them together.
I don't know if the tip about saving work on Word was ever posted here or not. I may have written it to you in PM. Whatever, it's something very simple that everyone needs to know about.
This is a very handy thing when you are setting up a thread with lots of pictures and text. For coherence and ease of loading you may want to break it up into several posts. However, you may want these posts to appear as a unit. So, how do you post them and keep people from Replying before you are finished? Simple -- you paste each part into a Word document as you go along, then copy and paste each part as a post, one after the other.
Here is what you do:
1. Open a new Word document and give it the appropriate name.
2. Set up your post and Preview and tweak it until it's the way you want it.
3. Copy what you have in the Message Box and paste it into the Word document. Save.
4. I like to put a couple of returns and a line of equals signs after each pasted post so that I can easily see where one post ends and another begins.
5. Repeat steps 2 and 3 with each subsequent post. until you have as many as you need.
6. Begin your new thread as usual -- give it a title, then copy and paste the first saved post in as the OP. Post it. Now copy the second saved post and post it. Continue until done.
I am getting that weird stretched screen thing again,am on my own computer,did updates and reinstalled Firefox last night,and now this is happening. I don't know if that has anything to do with it,but,IT'S BACK!!!
I have one report from a member of a forum stretching problem. That means that certain pages appear like this:
This is not the same thing as "screen stretching", which is almost always caused by over-sized pictures or text on the page.
Is anyone else experiencing this problem? If so, please report it here and include a screenshot if possible (sized appropriately!)
I also received one report from another person saying that the main page opens normally for a moment, but then the right-hand column disappears. Has anyone else experienced this? Again, please report it here and a screen shot is imperative.
These things can be reported to our host forum, but they need details in order to troubleshoot.
The picture shown is what I am experiencing in 3 of the sections on here,not all. Maritime Museum,Change the Station and On the Menu. (I didn't know what it was called,thought screen stretching but ... ,whatever,is annoying,and have had it before).Thanks
Also Free Trade Zone and Waterfront Park added to the list as of this writing.
I have been having a problem with all proboards forums, this one included, for at least the last 24 hours. That is, instead of being taken to the last thing posted in a thread, I'm always taken to the OP. It's very annoying.
Also, when I post something, instead of seeing what I just posted, the page jumps back to the top. Anyone else experience this?
OK, it does jump to the top of the page after I post a reply, but I think it always did for me. (I always scroll down to see if my post has appeared the way I wanted it to - and to make sure there wasn't a page change I missed.)
Thanks, Casimira. And thanks for reporting it promptly. If more people report things when they have the problem, it is so much easier to take the question to the Support board. Otherwise, if it seems to be a problem for only one person, it can start a wild goose chase over the perception that it's the person's computer causing the problem.
