Trying to post a PDF file
If this works, I can post the required drawings and info about Screwcutting. I am still having heaps of problems with getting the pdf file to upload. The drawing, if it appears, is the recumbent trike I designed some time ago, I hope to find time now to build it after I finish my high speed Sand Yacht.

Ok, I'm halfway there, how do I get the drawing as a pdf file to appear without having to download the file as shown??? Help - help please,

If you're having to D/L the PDF to open it, it means that you have your settings in your browser set to D/L rather than open with Adobe or whatever PDF viewer you use.
If I click on the link it opens it, as my settings are set as open rather than D/LCheers

Similar download problem
Would you be kind enough to elaborate on Browser settings.
I too have to download the pdf file first, then open it for viewing.
Precisely which settings and where, need to be tweeked to view the file straight off?

Errrmm... correct me if I'm wrong, but being a PDF doesn't your system have to download it either way?
The only real difference is online viewing downloads it temporarily into a temp folder and automatically deletes the copy from your hard-drive when you've finished viewing...

Save as a JPEG, resize and post like this.

He just means it's a pain to download it, view once and delete - I agree. In the days of broadband a 1MB or so file can be viewed online easily when needed.

For other browsers, it should be something similar.
As for PDFs, I've got mine set to ask me every time, that way I can decide if I just want to look at it or save it to a particular FolderCheers
