  • Saving favorite posts

    Hi All - a question: Is there a way to save favorite posts? I looked at the faq and even did a search but nothing came up. I have lurked here forever but now plan to participate more. I keep running across wonderful techniques or solutions but am at a loss to keep track of them. Should I just cut and past to a Word Document or something? Tips & techniques anyone?

    You should be able to bookmark them in your browser.

      If you want to save them to your computer you can do a screen capture or print the thread to PDF. Of course, this does not save the image that might link from a post, but you could downlaod that and keep it with what you saved.

        I tested a couple of threads I want to keep by adding them to my Favorites and it worked like I dream. Thanks for the help!

          Hi Linda, when I first started visiting this site, I was adding pages to my favorites and in a short time, I realized that I had so many favorites, I might as well let Doug keep track of them and use the search facility to locate what I wanted.

          Also, if you want to find a particular link, create a thread and ask about it - doing so serves as a reminder to the rest of us.

          Hope you enjoy your time here, welcome to RetouchPRO.

            Yes my preference would be to use the search facility - only problem is there are some threads that are tough to search for and those are the ones I will want to keep if it is something I think I'll want in the future. Example: There was a thread titled something like "New Technique" that I saw briefly the other day. I didn't have time to read it and when I went to look for it a week later I couldn't think of good search terms because I hadn't read the thread in detail. I did find it but it took some sifting.

            Thanks for the warm welcome - I've lurked here off and on for a long time - I think I was one of the earliest to sign up when Doug set the original site up. I decided to become more of an active member (and will put my $$ where my mouth is!). There is a wealth of knowledge here....the people are nice....and the site software is a treat to use now that I have dsl and can download pics quickly.

              Forum Search Function
              by Mining Art
              I was wondering how the forum New Posts is set up. Seems like when I return to find a thread the function will bring up a whole different batch of posts. I have been saving the links to find threads as they do not stick in one place it seems? Posting activity does not appear to be the issue, as the...

              TIP: How did I miss that thread?
              by Doug Nelson
              The way the forum tracks which threads you've read and which ones you haven't is a bit complicated, and far from foolproof. Frequently it will think you've read posts you actually haven't.

              The primary culpret is a restriction to the forum software that's necessary to keep it from overwhelming...

              Question: What is a "Bump"?
              by Doug Nelson
              The vast majority of forum users rely on the "new posts" page to determine what they'll read. For various reasons, this means perfectly useful and interesting threads can sometimes die an early death. Placing a post in these threads will "bump" them, and make them appear in the "new...
