Me too, with the same success

I got the latest Adobe PDF converter and it is a lot easier than what I had, so going forward I will just convert to JPG which go inline fine, but you have to do each page separtately.

Thanks for trying, I appreciate it.

I worked fine for me. I'm on a MacBook Pro with the latest operating system and the latest stuff from Adobe.

Got it, but what I have been trying to do is get the PDF document itself to show up in the post, so folks don't have to have it open out of the post itself. It can add clarity and such without switching back and forth, just like having a picture imbedded in the post.

If I understand what you're asking for, it would mean that the software that runs the board would have to have built-in support for PDFs, and that support would have to work across several browsers, with both major desktop operating systems, and probably on a few mobile platforms, as well. With a few gifted engineers and a large testing group, it probably could be done, but remember this is a free forum.

To me, the most important thing is that the site is always up and running.

One problem would be the need to use html in order to get a hosted pdf to display on a forum. Allowing users to code html would be too risky.

I know that you're trying to make the viewing seamless for members but I'm thinking the pdf file either as an attachment or a link will have to suffice otherwise its a lot of work for you and you still might run into image size issues.

That does seem to be the consensus, too bad, but it really isn't all that bad to convert to JPG files. It is interesting, at least to me, that the Adobe PDF converter I just got automatically will generate a page at a time, so it goes pretty quickly. Takes longer to get them uploaded to the forum and put in line. At least with the converter they don't have to be screenshots or scans like other times.
