Wow, hope you get an answer to this burning question. I’ve seen discussions on how to reference an existing .pdf file somewhere on another website, i.e. treat it just like any other URL. That’s not what we want to do though, right? I have had limited success converting a .pdf file to a .jpg using a program called ACDSee and then uploading the .jpg. The problem is that ACDSee will only convert one page at a time so if the .pdf is more than one page then it gets to be a little cumbersome to covert one at a time but it does work.

For some strange reason, some people can( post .pdf) and some people can’t.


I have no idea why? ![icon_confused.gif](upload://qv5zppiN69qCk2Y6JzaFYhrff8S.gif)

If you you want to post a .pdf send it to me and I will post it for you.

The last pdf I posted could only be opened by some and not by others.

The new 7.0 version of the PDF reader should be downloaded.

I’ll ask again.


How do I upload a pdf file to the bulletin board? What is the method? I see no buttons on the Post a Reply page to upload a file to the bulletin board server.

Dennis,


Right now there is no way to attach a pdf. I'll certainly look into adding the feature.

Yea.


I have yet to see a 1 MB PDF file, and most of the PDF files are in the 100-500 KB range, and I've seen a lot of 500 KM to 1 MB pictures posted, so storage space can't be the issue.

I wonder why we don't have this function. It would provide to be very useful to us as an association. Maybe Nick doesn't want it?

You have to send it to Todd. He is the one in charge of posting pdf files.

Because I have a pop up blocker, I did have to hold down the Ctrl key to allow the upload window to pop up.

Works great. Now its even easier to share information.

Thanks Chris.
