I learned a new skill, but... (PDF)

Thanks to a small nag from gmjhowe, I now know how to create a pdf file of documents I create in CorelDraw. Dead easy, publish to pdf.But, there doesn't seem to be an equivalent function in Word.Have I just missed something stupidly obvious, or do I need to acquire some software to do it?My first PDFed 'ible.

Uploading files changes their format?

I've just published a new instructable*, and the files have uploaded oddly. One of the files should be an SVG file, but it comes up on the published project as a JPG file. This happens when I upload the SVG as a photo, and when I upload it as a file. As a test, I've uploaded the same SVG file to this forum topic, and that has worked correctly. UPDATE: once I uploaded the file to this topic, it was available in my image library, and I could add it to my instructable *https://www.instructables.com/id/Desktop-Caber-Tosser/

Forbidden File Access

I have been having some issues with accessing to a file that is attached on an instructable. It is a word document, and people, including me, have been having problems downloading this file. This issue has been wide spread already, and we will really appreciate it if this problem can be fixed. This picture is the screenshot of what it shows when I click on the file.  The page that consists this file is: https://www.instructables.com/id/Build-a-Robotic-Arm-for-the-Science-Olympiad/step14/P0-Ultimate-BOM/ The file itself is: https://www.instructables.com/files/orig/FOW/0NT3/H2WEXAA0/FOW0NT3H2WEXAA0.docx I hope that this can be fixed! Thanks!:)

Startup file to copy a picture

I have a school tablet that was forced upon us by my school. The IT department at my school insists that the computers stay 'uniform' by having the same background for desktop and log on etc. As the mischief making students that we are, we quickly tracked down the destination file and replaced the image with one of our own. But the IT found a way to stop this by changing the file back every few times we boot. So I was wondering if I could get some help with the coding for copying a file on boot. All help is appreciated.

DXF file sizing/scaling issue.

When a create files to cut with my laser cutter, I create them in InkScape, save them as DXF files, then import them into LaserCut 5.3 Unfortunately, the size of the cut file is not retained. For instance, if I create a drawing of an object around A6 in size, when I import it into LaserCut it fills the A3 workspace. Resizing for simple, flat objects isn't a major issue. However, when item cut at different times have to fit together, or, say, slots are sized to the thickness of the material, it gets to be a time-consuming issue, and sometimes wasteful of materials. Anybody know how to fix this?

Homemade electric nail file

Hey there to all you wonderful people! I have an odd proposal / suggestion / idea... I was wondering if anyone had ever considered this as an Instructables project by any (small) chance? Don't laugh TOO much, this is not something that would be considered a run-of-the-mill every-day kind of DIY by any means... Here's my ish: I'm not incredibly fantastic when it comes to personal grooming, doing the basics as quickly as possible so as to waste as little time getting ready for the day. However, me tooties are a point of some concern due to an out-of-the-ordinary dermal condition. As a result of this, I have to take special attention to moisturizing feet and toenail filing. Also, I suffered an accident when I was much younger that caused the nails on the big toe to grow skew. Long story short I've now been sitting on the floor for 40 minutes with a manual file and, while my one's and two's a looking smashing, I thought there MUST be a way of making my own electric nail file. I thought to try and convert a screwdriver bit for my electric screwdriver into a spherical file which I'm sure would literally save me HOURS and will do my knees a world of good - I've found myself kneeling in 1 position for a lot longer than nature intended. I am NOT the shining Instructables Star in the making by ANY stretch of the imagination but I do have some interesting theories about time travel (not really applicable here, but I wanted to try and sound less daaa - cos this isn't a 'Change The World' kinda project) In any event, I thought maybe someone who has a grasp of my concept and an understanding of how things worked may have a thought on how to accomplish this? Baring in mind that where I live, things like electric nail files are luxuries available only to a specific  social group & not an option for the general norm pavements specials such as I... I'm so interested to see if anyone could give me some help. You'd LITERALLY be saving my life (or at least adding about 10 - 15 years to it where I don't have to spend crouched over a small chair for a quarter of my day every 5 or 6 days) Stopped giggling yet? :) Tx guys, it's a dumb thing to ask, but this dumb thing has the potential to SIGNIFICANTLY change my life in a very practical way. Kind Regards and Loads of thanks! ps It ses to add images, but I think just for the sake of global sanity I'll refrain until I've found a working solution (or a pic of someone else's feet) :) Much love t'ya!

File Box for Index Cards

For some time I've been searching on Instructables for how to make a file box for index cards. No matter what word order or word types I used, what came up was making stuff out of index cards, or other odd stuff.  But nothing that got me what I was searching for. How to make a file box for index cards, needs to be basic & simple, not laser cutting (as don't have such). However, do have a box cutter, packing tape, handheld power tools: circular saw, saber saw, drill, just no tabletop tools, & no way to make, & no room to put any tabletop for such. I've looked at the Snap-N-Store collapsible index card file boxes, & have head/read by customer reviews that the snaps don't necessarily stay snapped.  I'm thinking if made w/cardboard or fiberboard (as the Snap-N-Store is) that something like corner brackets/braces (just not metal ones for wood)  can be used instead of snaps, & would hold together better. The Snap-N-Store boxes I'm wanting hold 1000 cards ea, & for ea size of index card 3X5, 4X6, & 5X8 I just need some help for a pattern & building instructions. Can anyone do an Instructable for such so I can follow & make them? Remember, I don't have, nor get access to, nor know how to use a laser cutter, or tabletop powertools. I just have handheld powertools of circular saw, saber saw, drill, & boxcutter, scissors & the usual handtools & hardware. Thanks

Online Pirates Sunk - crew still paddling

The four men behind the (in)famous file-sharing website Pirate Bay have been jailed for a year, and ordered to pay $4,500,000 damages to a selection of big media publishing companies.One of the four, Peter Sunde, refused to pay what he called a "bizarre" fine; ""We can't pay and we wouldn't pay. Even if I had the money I would rather burn everything I owned, and I wouldn't even give them the ashes."Despite the ruling, The Pirate Bay website is still up and running - it seems that, whilst the activities of the website have been declared illegal, the website itself is not, presumably because none of the shared files are hosted by TPB themselves.Speaking to the BBC, the chairman of industry body the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) John Kennedy said the verdict sent out a clear message."These guys weren't making a principled stand, they were out to line their own pockets. There was nothing meritorious about their behaviour, it was reprehensible."The Pirate Bay did immense harm and the damages awarded doesn't even get close to compensation, but we never claimed it did."There has been a perception that piracy is OK and that the music industry should just have to accept it. This verdict will change that," he said.BBC StoryBBC Business analysis of TPB's operationsIFPI press releasePirate Bay's press conference

Gerber files and Eagle

I want to use Kcam for CNC wich can use Gerber files, but I can't figure out how to make one in Eagle. How do I export a Gerber file? I looked under export but it wasn't there. Does it have something to do with the CAM processor? If so, How do I use it? Please Help! Thanks.

Batch file programming help

Hi, I've been recently working on a batch file program that can multitask, and open and close various programs on command. Currently, the main interface file is called "DBat"(without the quotes, and its a batch, so I guess its really DBat.bat). The folder it is in is on my Desktop, and called "DBat"(no quotes) I would like to make it so that when I open the folder, it automatically runs DBat. How would I do this? To explain it clearer: I open the DBat folder DBat.bat runs Anyone know how I should go about this?

Portable Query Machine for Excel files

I was wondering if there would be a way to make a "query machine" that would be portable.  It would need a display and digit pad and allow me to load an excel sheet to the device and then search it using the key pad.  I didn't know if this would be feasible or not so some input would be valuable.  I need something like an RF Scanner that would be used in a ware house except without the scanner part.  Just manually type in a number and a location appears on the screen.

Downloading embedded files

When I go to try and download embedded files in instructions that aren't first placed in a zip file, they are downloaded as .tmp files. Here's one example: https://www.instructables.com/id/Led-Cube-8x8x8/step8/IO-port-expansion-more-multiplexing/ The downloaded schematic file comes out as FHJASA2GICYB6DA.tmp with a URL of https://www.instructables.com/files/orig/FHJ/ASA2/GICYB6DA/FHJASA2GICYB6DA.tmp. Any help? Thanks in advance!
