Problem With The New Editor

I'm having some trouble with the new editor since I can't leave a gap between sentences.  When I 'am in the editor and I leave gaps (to the size that I want it to be) between the sentences and then I go to save it and when look at the preview, the gap size I wanted it to be has not worked. I have tried every several times to change the gap in the editor and then saving it and the gap is still not size I wanted it to be. Is there anyone esle having this problem and I really wish to have the old editor back.

A problem with my gun

Ok. I've scrapped the Mamba 12-G because there wasn't anything new there. I am bringing back the AR-4 Commando, but there is a problem I loaded my mag with 4 shots, and it has very low range on 2 of the shots The first two are fine, but not as great. The next two fly 3 feet and flop. The range on the other two is lower than my Mamba and earlier versions of the commando. I am using Banana inventor's mag for the gun....

I haven't done or clicked anything to disable them.

Help wanted. Problems that need solving!

Hi, The coursework for one of the modules I'm taking this year at university requires for us to design and manufacture something to help someone. That is the brief. It can be software or hardware based (we're studying electronic engineering). To help us pick a suitable project that can be completed within 11 weeks, myself and two others are brainstorming all of the problems we can think of so that we can have a large range of problems to choose from and design a solution. If you can think of something that is hard for a cetain group of people that could be made easier with an engineered solution or if you can think of a problem that needs solving, I would love for you to post it below. Some quick examples, many of these have been solved by otheres, they are just examples: - steps are a problem for wheel chair users, a deployable ramp for converting steps into a ramp safely - jars are hard to open for those with weak wrists or arthiritus, an apparatus to aid in their opening - educating people on what they can do to reduce their carbon footprint is hard. A website to give users a weekly suggestion of things in their  life they might be able to change to be more environmentally friendly. They would be able to tick them as adopted or rejected and see a list of the things that they've changed for the better.

Publishing Bug

I have some problem with an instructable that i posted 2 days ago. when i view my own profile, it shows that i have 12 instructables published. Truth is, i actually have 13, when i count each one individually. this is kind of bizarre, because, i usually see a lot of comments and favorites for my other instructables, not including this one. can someone tell me what is going on, and can the instructables support team try to help?

Problem editing steps

Hi there. I'm having difficult recently trying to edit my instructable. When I try to edit any of the steps, it goes to save the intro even though I didn't edit it and the screens fades a bit to save. I can see the progress wheel turning, but it never stops. I pulled up the Error console and it gave me this: JavaScript - https://www.instructables.com/id/edit?instructableId=EQY2DE1G1BBCRA8 Inline script compilation Syntax error while loading: line 6 of inline script at https://www.instructables.com/id/edit?instructableId=EQY2DE1G1BBCRA8 : Expected token: ')' aterials that I used:Building supplies" Cardboard (thick) Make sure it is rigid" Cardboard (thin)" -------------------------------------------------^ JavaScript - https://www.instructables.com/id/edit?instructableId=EQY2DE1G1BBCRA8 Timeout thread: delay 10 ms Error: name: SyntaxError message: Statement on line 495: Syntax error stacktrace: n/a; see  opera:config#UserPrefs|Exceptions Have Stacktrace I have no idea what any of this means. I tried on Safari,  Firefox and Opera and all three gave me the same problems.

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

instructables not showing up under sort by recent, or otherwise.

So, I have noted that on all the instructables I make, they usually don't show up at all when you sort by recent, letalone searches. is there something I'm doing wrong? (and yes, the instructable in question IS published) a link to the one in question is https://www.instructables.com/id/EOM1FDMF6B7Q3S9/Thanks!

unable to upload

Newbie I tried many times last night to upload pictures to my library and had no luck. Watched a youtube video on the subject, but still no luck. Are there an instructable to show me what I am doing wrong? I am using a newer Mac. Are the pictures in the wrong format I was able to choose files . when I hit upload, nothing seemed to happen and the library was empty. The text I entered vanished into the unknown.

Can't publish my project to First Time contest, even though date range is okay

I created a new instructable, my first time, on Sept 10: https://www.instructables.com/id/Awesome-Wooden-Record-Crate/ I tried to enter the contest for "First Time Author": https://www.instructables.com/contest/fta2017/ However, but I get a pop-up message "You haven't published any eligible instructables yet." - and my only option is to create a new instructable. Which would not be my first time :) So although there are still seven days left in the contest, and I'm logged in, and my project was created within the date range - I can't enter the contest. Frustrating! Any idea what I'm doing wrong here?

Austin schoolteacher who didn't believe Linux existed

From linuxlock:A teacher in Austin who threatened to report a local free-Linux-machines charity to the police because "there's no such thing as free software" and they had therefore deceived the student she caught distributing Linux disks in class.The teacher sent an email to the blog, which sparked this whole incident.The teacher's initial email: (Thanks, gmoon!)After confiscating the disks I called a confrence with the student and that is how I came to discover you and your organization. Mr. Starks, I am sure you strongly believe in what you are doing but I cannot either support your efforts or allow them to happen in my classroom. At this point, I am not sure what you are doing is legal. No software is free and spreading that misconception is harmful. These children look up to adults for guidance and discipline. I will research this as time allows and I want to assure you, if you are doing anything illegal, I will pursue charges as the law allows. Mr. Starks, I along with many others tried Linux during college and I assure you, the claims you make are grossly over-stated and hinge on falsehoods. I admire your attempts in getting computers in the hands of disadvantaged people but putting linux on these machines is holding our kids back.This is a world where Windows runs on virtually every computer and putting on a carnival show for an operating system is not helping these children at all. I am sure if you contacted Microsoft, they would be more than happy to supply you with copies of an older verison of Windows and that way, your computers would actually be of service to those receiving them...Original Article which started the situationNew Article that clears things up

I wasn't very sure if this was a bug report or not so I just made it a forum. For some reason instructables is not allowing me to embed videos. IT comes up with the window where I paste the embed code but it doesn't allow me to press OK at all. Is this problem happening to anyone else?
