[Solved] Allowable to attach file/images to Forum posting?

Postby MartyG » Mon Oct 31, 2016 10:45 am

Hello all, new here and looking for ideas. Question, If I need to ask a question regarding a problem setting up a spreadsheet can I attach or show an example in a post. I have a question about a Pilot Logbook I have created and have made a example of what I need as I thought it might be easier to explain that way. Cheers Marty

Yes, it is encouraged to attach an image or better yet a sample file to a posting, as then we are dealing with an exact situation, not a guess.

The Upload Attachment tab is below the Submit button on the FullEditor or PostReply screens, but not on the QuickReply screen.

Note there is a 128Kb limit; if the file is bigger, post it on a file sharing site and give the URL to it.

Frequently a problem file can easily be shortened to fit into that size limit; this is good as it eliminates the need to consider and discard much irrelevant information.
