Just a query - I tried to upload (Radius Gauge - Downloads) it accepted the *doc & *.pdf files but the upload function doesn't even "see" the *.dwg files and I consequently cannot upload them.
Is this a glitch or a permanent feature ?
I also noticed that many of my prior posting have gone AWOL - is this for the same reason or because of a subsequent posting of the same engine as a *.pdf - i.e. the system thinks its redundant / duplication.
It seems all my prior uploads containing *.dwg files are gone.

Regards,
Ken

@Ken I I just added that dwg to the list of files allowed. What type is it. I just checked all the extension that were on the vB forum, and that dwg was not one of them. What do they go to? And since I don't have the dwg on the old list (I saved a screen copy before change), how did they get uploaded?

And does it work now?

Thanks - Yes it works uploaded just fine (below).
Autocad files have the *.dwg extension.
For this particular upload the *.dwg file is important as the data can be used to EDM or Waterjet cut the parts.
The vB forum definitely allowed *.dwg files under the downloads section - but I don't think it did anywhere else.
The "missing" files seem to be there now - but just possibly I wasn't diligent enough in looking for them - some are 16+ pages in.
Regards, Ken

New problem: I can't see pictures. There is a placeholder and a caption, something.img. I am running Firefox version 63.0.1 on Windows 10. If I use MS Edge, which I hate, I can view the pictures. I have no problem viewing pictures on other forums. Help, please.

Please give me a link to a thread with those image issues so I can test it with Firefox.

I have just looked at that thread with Firefox. It did update this morning. Those are photobucket photos and unless your browser has a photobucket extension added you may not see them. Do you have the most current Firefox?

Hey Ken,

Question...What specifically is the "caliper" prime use?
Nice file, except blue on black background is tough for this old guy to "see".
And if you didn't get .DWG file viewing previously, and I certainly can now, what about the newer standard .DXF for AutoCCD files?
Thanks.

Good to hear that you were able to fix your Firefox to allow the images.

Hi. Just received a very strange email regarding my apparent desire to leave the forum! Have I been hacked? Has the forum been hacked - several forum members appeared in the long and repetitive mail.

Thanks

It seemed to happen to me shortly after visiting the site in this link and downloading the "plans" May just be co-incidence, Also I haven't yet unzipped the file. Ian

Thanks for all the input. Please let me know if anyone gets any more of these. It appears an old PM was activated and sent to all on the PM. We have killed it, so there should not be any more of them. If there are more we need to know immediately.
Thanks for all the help.
