Downloading?

Hello, I'm a newbie to this site and I'm trying to figure out how I can download the information In PDF format.  Every time I hit  the PDF button, it asks for my ID and for my password which I put in, but then it goes back to the original site. I can't figure out where or if anything is been downloaded. I 'd appreciate  some help on this. Best regards Rolando

PDF Downloads

Hello, I am a new Pro user and when I try to download Instructables PDF's I am directed back to the PDF download page. Some Instructables will allow me to download their PDF's however. I don't see anything common to the instructables that either work or don't, so I am pretty confused. If it helps at all, the custom PDF download does not work at all. Thanks for the help.

Download the ebook

I am sure I must be doing something silly but I have tried both Firefox and IE and don't see any way to download ebooks anymore.  When I am logged in and click download the ebook it brings me to a general description page on one tab, a table of contents on another tab, a small table below that lets me download various readers but I don't see any actual link that lets me download the book in question.  I have looked in my downloads folder thinking that maybe it happened in the background or something but that also isn't the case.  There is also a View Instructables link that just brings me back to the page that has the Download ebook link.

Downloading not working

I have an up-to-date premium subscription. When I click the Download button, the targeted Instructables file does not download. Hoping to receive advice how to troubleshoot this problem. Thanks. The attachment is a screen shot of my Chrome page after clicking the Download button. The icon in the lower left corner is the only result of clicking the button. When I open that icon, it asks what program I wish to use to open a file. (Well, been trying to upload it, but unable to do it. Attempting to get help at Instructables -- this is my third attempt -- is proving to be not only frustrating but ineffective.) Brian Chapman Cedar Rapids, Iowa

download not working

The download button at: https://www.instructables.com/id/Vector-etch-anodized-aluminum/ produces nothing but a gray screen, even if left for some time.  This is an older instructable (I'm replacing files from a damaged backup file) and something seems to have gone wrong.  All the other pdfs I downloaded at the same time worked fine.  I'm using Safari 10.1.2 on a Mac Pro running OS X 10.11.6.  Not that I think this problem relates to my system.  Hope you can fix it.

Hello, I'm super super new and extremely out of my element unless I have my nose in a book or I'm puttering in the kitchen so I'm struggling a bit here. I just bought a pro membership because I really wanted to download the PDF of a certain project...specifically this one: https://www.instructables.com/id/Chocolate-Extract/ I don't even seen an option to download, am I just blind? Sorry for the bother, as I said I'm rather out of my element and I'm very anxious, so just asking this was a struggle lol.

Download instructables

I am in a situation where I only have access to the internet at school. I go home some 20 min away to my apartment to build instructables. though I was wondering if there was any way to package all the pictures and html from an instructables so one could easily view it offline. Say at my apartment where i'm trying to build the BAWLS led light. Long story short, is there anyway to get zipped instructables files? Or does anyone know any good programs for downloading pages for offline viewing? thanks

Audacity: to download or not?

I am looking to record music on a piece of free software, and export to CDs so I can make a sample tape, and also I would like to have something to record a backing track for my guitar solo competition. I am interested in making podcasts too, and this looks like a good program for it. Would you recommend Audacity? I've used it before at school for podcasts, and I have heard excellent things about it. I am 95% sure, but is there any free audio editing software that you would reccomend over audacity? I am using windows vista home premium by the way.

Is there a way to download all responses to an Instructable?

When an instructable has more than one page of responses, only those on the first page (or so) are included in the download.  Usually I do a custom pdf without the comments, but every once in a while there's one with a whole lot of discussion and additional information that would be nice to have in the pdf.  I know there's a link to the 'ible page at the end, but that requires an internet connection which might not be available.  Thanks---
