Hello, Is there a way to use strike through text on my Instructable. I found this but it does not seem to work. https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-do-word-formating-on-instructable Thank you

Would it be possible to change the text that appears in the question box?If it was changed to something like "Can't find what you want with a search? Then don't be shy, ask your question here", then maybe we would have less of things like this.Just a thought.

This is a forum where you can poste any kind of picture you want, but only text pictures! The reason I created this forum is because I really think these text pictures are interesting. Anything is ok, nothing is bad, and throw everything you got at this forum. Thanks! :)

I am aging each page of a book for an art installment i am working. Currently, i am putting masking tape on each page and then pealing it off so the text becomes fainter. Is there another way to make the text fainter on a page besides peeling it off with tape?

I am going to be entering one of the competitions and would like to know how I add text to describe the image? I can see you can place a text box onto the image but will that be on the image once published? How do people get the text to read below the image? Thanks for the help.

I went back to an old instructable(https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Weave-on-a-Frame-Loom/ ) to answer a question posted in a comment when I noticed that the text is missing from step 2. I am pretty sure there was something written in step 2, but it seems to have disappeared. I don't have a pdf copy of the instructable nor do I remember what was written there. Is there any way to retrieve it, I tried using the history to revert to a previous version, but there was no previous version to revert to. I have no idea when it had disappeared or why.

Hi everyone, I'm curious if anyone has ever seen or heard of a wireless texting device that would be suitable for older folks to use. Basically, I'm thinking a laptop-sized screen with a keyboard (basic functionality) that could stay on at home to receive/send texts for those folks (especially older folks) who cannot or will not use a smartphone or regular laptop. Some sort of audible signal that as text has been received would be good too. Thanks in advance for any and all help. ~J

I've just noticed - after someone commented - that bits of the text on my instructable aren't there any more. https://www.instructables.com/id/Build-your-own-cheap-multi-function-wireless-ca/ Steps 1 and 2 were pretty wordy but now nothing? Actually a number of other steps aren't appearing either... this is a big problem! It's still there clearly because if you hover over a step icon it appears - and it's visible from the edit panel.

I have written text for my instructable a couple of times. Each time the autosave says it saved it just a minute ago or whatever. But I found out that you have to manually hit the "Save" button before the "Publish" button, or all my changes were lost. This happened to me a couple of times. What about adding an alert, if an author has added text, asking if they want to save first because text has been changed? The autosave is NOT adding the new text to the instructable, which breaks my heart after all the work I put into it.

I just purchased a Pro account and noticed that generating a PDF leaves off the text in the 'Intro' section. That does not happen on the 'View all steps on one page' option. Is this a bug? Is there a work around? It certainly leaves out a lot of very valuable information in the Instructable. Thanks

I have just started making a few Arduino Instructables and am wondering how I can put the scrollbar text boxes like at Step 15: Program of this Intructable https://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-Countdown-Timer/?ALLSTEPS I do not have Pro membership. Also is there any way to post formatted Arduino code within the Instructables. Hopefully someone might be able to help me with these questions, thanks Pedro.

Kasey and Vanessa from yourpsychogirlfriend are featured on BoingBoingTV! Watch as Xeni checks out some of the awesome stuff they've been working on: high-concept tutus (my favorite gets filled with hissing cockroaches), giant evil doll puppets, and best of all, the Text-O-Possum.I still owe Kasey a mouse mouse to go with her compubeaver. Clearly it's time to get to work before the mouse is permanently upstaged by next-gen Possum-tech.I definitely plan to keep an eye on these two.

This seems like it should be a very simple bug, but it's also very frustrating, as I currently can't post a comment anywhere. I type something into a comment box, hit the Post button, and it pops up with 'Missing Comment Text'. I first tried as a reply to a comment on my own Instructable, and I double checked with a comment on my own, a comment on someone else's, and reply to a comment on someone else's, and nothing worked. I cannot post comments or replies anywhere. I think I ran into this problem a few months ago but it didn't bother me as much back then. I am running Safari v.7 on OSX v.10.9 Just checked with google chrome; and it worked. In light of that, I'm guessing it's just something in Safari's Preferences that I don't know about. Anyway, let me know, because I'm sure this has happened to someone else before.

So, I went to edit the accompanying text for a slideshow of mine, and, after submitting my changes, *all* of the text was gone. I figured that I'd just messed up somewhere in the process, so I went back and added all of the original text back again. Submit. No text with the entry. Ok, so maybe the problem was with my Linux/Firefox setup. I switched over to Mac/Firefox. Entered in the text again. Submit. No text with the entry. Mac/Safari? Entered in the text again. Submit. No text with the entry. So... is there any way that I can add text to my slideshow again? I would really like to do so. For reference, this is the slideshow in question: https://www.instructables.com/id/Amigurumi-and-the-Perils-of-Space-Travel/ Thanks!

There does not seem to be an option to put the text first followed by the images? I would like to have several lines of text in the introduction followed by the images. It would also be nice to put text before each image such as: text, image, text, image, etc. Is there a way to do this?
Topic by bennett2198 | last reply
This is a problem I've been having for a while now. When writing up an Instructable, I typically write all the text, then go back at a later date and add pictures. Several times now, I've added pictures to a step, clicked to the next step, then THE ENTIRE BLOCK OF TEXT IN THE NEXT STEP DISAPPEARS. I do not use all-caps lightly. The text is irretrievable - I have to rewrite it from scratch. Not only is that a huge waste of time for me (since I don't have any time to spare), it also results in an inferior duplicate of what I'd originally written. Details are skipped, ideas forgotten, etc. Chances are I originally wrote that text days or weeks ago, when the information was fresh. Now it's stale. Please, please look into this. I've taken to copying everything into Word as "safe keeping" until the Instructable is published. Computer details: Mac OS X 10.5.9, running Firefox 3.6.12 (though it happened with previous versions of Firefox, too).

I'm trying to apply some text onto the material from a soda can, but I don't have the neatest handwriting and it's not even meant to be a normal font. What are some good ways to apply some guidance for me when I go to actually scribe onto the material? The end result I'm aiming for is a box similar to this one; https://www.instructables.com/id/Drink-Can-Tinwork/ but with the Sith Creed written in one of the Star Wars fonts, and most of the visible work being done by a dremel. I've thought about making a stencil, but I'm not sure I can reasonably cut some of those shapes at the necessary size. Toner transfer may be an option, but I am not too familiar with that process.

Why is the kerning (inter-character) spacing of the text in Instructables' PDFs so goofy? Not any of the heads, but all the text. I'm using Mac OS X 10.5 and the text font used is identified as Helvetica Condensed Bold Italic. Heads are Helvetica Bold (not Condensed) and they do display correctly. I do not have any problem on my system with Helvetica Condensed Bold Italic used in any other document and no problem with numerous PDFs from other sources. And, why not a simple Arial or Helvetica Regular or Plain for the text anyhow?

Some of the text boxes on photos in my instructables have randomly either disappeared or have moved from the position they were originally placed. This has occurred randomly over all my instructables. On some of the steps there is nothing wrong. Then on other steps the text boxes have disappeared altogether or have migrated to a bunch at the top of the picture. Can this be corrected or do I have to edit all of my instructables?

Hello Can somebody tell me if you can add text into a batch file at a specific point. When i add text (with another batch file) it always go's to the end of the text/batch file. That does not help having the text at the bottom like this :hello pause>nul exit echo hello for example when I want to add text like this :hello echo hello pause>nul exit at the moment I use this code to add text to a batch file pushd %CD% for %%j in (1.bat) do type "%%j" >> 2.bat popd Thanks in advance If you don't understand please comment and say what you don't understand :)

Here's a thing I want, but have no idea how to build: THE INDEPENDENT KEYBOARD It doesn't care about computers! It save to itself! It's portable! There must be some way to build a keyboard that, once you turn it on, saves whatever inputs are typed to a plain text file on a thumb drive or SD card. Ideally, there'd be an on-off switch. When it's on, it's "recording" all inputs. Then you simply pull out the storage unit, plug that into a computer, and have your raw text. Any thoughts on how to pursue creating something like this?

I have tried to include notes on the images for my instructable. However, every time I save or move to another step of the instructable, the notes disappear. They do not show up when I view the published instructable. Weirder yet, After I go back in to edit the instructable and try to add a note to the same image, all of my other notes in that image show up while editing! Then they disappear again after saving or viewing the instructable. I tested it on the image below. I get the same result here. Do you see a text note on the image below? Ever run into this? Help! Update: - I am running Windows 7 Enterprise, SP1, 64 bit - Running IE 9.0.8112.16421 I tried viewing in Chrome, and now I see the text comment. I guess I'll be switching to Chrome... at least for the Instructables website. Andrew (aka ignoblegnome)

For my school science fair, I am designing a circuit that will turn appliances on/off through their power cord by a text message. I am thinking of using the vibrating motor leads of an old phone to control it. Anyone who knows of a source on the Wide Wide World o' Web about such a circuit, or would like to help me design it (collaborate on an i'ble?), PM me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Yes, I use the same name and password for everything!

I am looking for a way to make a wearable (bracelet or hanger) that will vibrate when I send a signal (i.e. text message?). It's intended use is to alert players to certain pre arranged situations in a game. As coach I can not always reach my players across the field by voice so I want to send an alert signal. Also this is more discreet. A smart watch is to big and volnurable. Bluetooth does not have the range so I am thinking gsm. Any suggestions on how to build such a device?

Hello; Several of our instructables have pre-formatted text in them. However recently this text has stopped displayed properly. It has gone from being multiple lines to a single long line. Is this a fixable issue? Examples: https://www.instructables.com/id/S99CDK8FWS6JUQS/ https://www.instructables.com/id/SAXXIILFSH7EDVM/ The Long line after "The Code"

I've noticed that when I put something in quotes, in a step instruction for example, the previewed and published text will have substitution of nonsense characters. I've noticed this on other instructibles by other authors, so it's not just mine. But, is this my computer, the browser (Firefox), or the Instructibles website programming? Has anyone else noticed this? Hope this helps.

HI, I'm currently working on removing the text from a picture I have. Because one of my previous usernames is in it and I don't use that account anymore. I also want to use it for other accounts. And because someone else made it for me, I d not have the resources to make another without the username. I've tried using most tools I thought might work, i used content aware fill, i used clone stamp, i even used the healing tool. All to no avail. I'm still not fully aware of every tool for photoshop, so There may be another way to do it. Thanks, all help is greatly appreciated. The image is below.
