Ross as I said I would use the "print" option in your browser to print a page of PMs to PDF. Top right corner "hamburger" menu in Firefox.

Thank you, Eutychus. I will try to figure it out; I'm not much good with this stuff anymore. (I blame chemo brain - it's got to be useful for something!)

AFAIK, the link will be posted here, and several other places on the Ship.

Open the PM you want to save.

Right click anywhere on the page, then choose "Print..."

Under "Destination," chose "Save as PDF," the click on "Save."

You'll be prompted to choose a folder/location for the file and to give the file a name. Do those two things and click "Save" again.

Done. [Smile]

Just a suggestion that maybe the Farewell to Uncle Pete thread in All Saints should be moved to Glory before the ship is set in drydock.

Thank you!

I just did this with a PC computer which means it will work on a Windows, Linux or Google Chrome computer system. It would work on a Apple computer if you know how to select with a mouse, copy and paste as far as I know.

1. Go to the top of the PM you want to save and put your cursor above the icon of the sender on the left. You should be just below the band which says "Source (consider it)". Basically you're inside the frame of the messages.

2. Holding the Left mouse button down, scroll your mouse down to the bottom of the frame of the last message in the PM series.

3. Let go of the Left mouse button key.

4. Right click on the highlighted area you selected. A menu may come up which includes "copy", if so click on that. If the menu does not come up, hold down Control and hit the letter C (for copy).

5. Open up a word processor program (Word, OpenOffice, LibreOffice) and get a blank document.

6. Hold down Control key and hit the letter V which will paste the contents. The other way is go to a menu at the top of the program and find "paste", which is usually in the menu labelled "Edit".

You should have the messages, including the users' icons/avatars.

R, this is what I've been doing and suggesting:

quote:
Idea Re Current PM Boxes:

I'm copying any PMs I want to keep, and pasting them into a blank document. (One after another, in the same document.)

Two methods I know of:

1) Open the PM, and do a Select All. (Mouse right button OR from Edit menu.) Copy. (Same way.) Paste into a blank document, and Save. Repeat for all you want to save, pasting them into the same document.

NOTE: This will pick up everything on the page, not just the PM, so it's a little messy. But, if you're in a hurry, this is quick.


2) Open the PM. Click at the left edge of the blue bar, and hold down the mouse button while you drag all the way to the end of the PM. Copy. (Mouse right button OR from Edit menu.) Paste into a blank document, and Save. Repeat for all you want to save, pasting them into the same document.


I've been using Method 2, but may switch.

I know a lot of us have a backlog of PMs. Saving them now, at least the ones you really want, may save regrets later.

FWIW.

Ok. I'm worried. I have only been able to access the current ship from my cellphone as our laptop so wants to die a peaceful death. Will I be able to re-register tomorrow using just my smartphone? My phone is smart. I, however...

I am sure it will be.

Also, five o’clock is just the new luxury liner drawing up alongside the dock.

Gangplanks will be lowered, smartly-suited Crew will be on hand to direct you to your cabin, it will not sail away until everyone is on board. Well enough of the nautical metaphors. It’ll all be fine. There’s no hurry.

At 5pm GMT this evening the following will happen:

  • Simon will post a new thread here inviting people to come over to the new Ship. This will give the URL for the new boards, and it will be very clear.
  • There will be instructions for registration, which will be simple - enter a working email address, choose a name you want to be known as (max 20 characters), choose a password (min 15 characters), fill in an optional "why I want to join" field. Then follow the link that will be sent to your email (check spam folder!) to confirm registration.
  • The boards here will be closed for new posts, excluding the Styx where we will have a dedicated "I can't get into the new boards" help thread.
What won't happen is for there to be a cut-off on registration. If you're not here to register at 5pm GMT this won't be a problem. You will miss out on reading/posting on the new Ship until you can be online ... but you wouldn't have been reading/posting here then either (not being online). You may miss out on initial teething trouble. You may find that the solution to common problems is already posted here.

Especially since some Shipmates use text-to-voice software, which AIUI can be somewhat troublesome. Their software might have a hard time finding the URL.

Yes.

In a little over an hour, this Ship will start to close, and the new Ship will start taking on passengers.

You'll need to reregister on the new Ship (the URL of which will be prominently posted here), preferably using your existing username.

Further instructions are on this thread.

I'm a bit late in asking this (46 minutes to go!), but what will happen to the Gallery?

Many of the pictures are of Shipmates who no longer post. Will there be a fresh new Gallery at some point?

It's been part of our discussions, but nothing firm has been agreed so far. As I'm sure you'll appreciate, it's not been one of the priorities.

The existing gallery will continue to exist on the same basis as the existing boards, so if lurkers can see it then it will remain accessible indefinitely.

Many of the pictures are of Shipmates who no longer post. Will there be a fresh new Gallery at some point?

It's been part of our discussions, but nothing firm has been agreed so far. As I'm sure you'll appreciate, it's not been one of the priorities.

The existing gallery will continue to exist on the same basis as the existing boards, so if lurkers can see it then it will remain accessible indefinitely.

Thanks for the response. (It's obviously not high on my list either, since I just thought of it a few minutes ago.)

Silly but techie nerdy question (I'm both, so that's allowed.)

What software are you using for the new forums?

Don't cling to a mistake just because you spent a lot of time making it.

I'm sorry to hear that, Anglican't. I know you haven't been very active lately, but I enjoyed meeting you at "my" Shipmeet in London (5 years ago?), and it's always fun to recognize you when you post. I hope you'll come aboard the new Ship at some point.
Gosh, it was a while ago! Yes, likewise and was a fun evening. I've broken a few 2018 resolutions already, so never say never but, for now, adieu.
