What are the ground rules for posting?
Thanks for asking. The community use agreement applies, but that boils down to only a few rules designed to keep communication as clear and focused as possible. None of the rules are going to feel unusual, they are just common sense and things that have proven to work.
- Prior to asking a question, please search the forum for answers. Someone might have had a similar question in the past and that question might have been answered.
- Post in English.
- Remain on topic, about the products and how to use them. If you want to diverge from the current topic, create a new thread.
- Do not post advertisements, profanity and / or adult material or links to it. Do not fight with other users (no ad hominem attacks, etc).
The forum is moderated. If a particular post is breaking some of the rules, the admins might remove it (or, for example, suggest to amend it). Keep your email address up to date in your profile so admins can contact you if necessary.
I have a feature suggestion or a bug report for Manifold / Radian. Where do I post it?
Please submit both feature suggestions and bug reports via email. You are more than welcome to post on the forum as well, but please send an email.
To submit a feature suggestion, email firstname.lastname@example.org. More details.
To submit a bug report, email email@example.com. More details.
We take both bug reports and feature suggestions very seriously and we are very grateful for them, thank you! For bug reports in particular, it is pretty common to have issues reported for one build fixed in the very next build. Don't hesitate to write.
How do I post code snippets with highlighted syntax?
How do I post an image?
Post the text and attach the image file. Start editing the post. Copy and paste the link for the attached image from the post into the Link URL control at the bottom of the editor. Place the cursor into where you want the image to appear in the post - it is common to create an empty paragraph. Click the Insert Image button in the editor toolbar. Save changes to the post.
Any limits or guidelines for files attached to posts?
The size of a single file is limited to 4 MB. If you want to attach a file bigger than that, upload it somewhere and post a link. If you want to attach a file as part of a feature suggestion or a bug report to a Manifold product, sales or tech support will be happy to provide FTP space.
There is no limit to the total number of attached files, but you can only add them in portions of 4. So, if you want to attach 6 files, attach first 4 files, submit the post, then edit the post and attach the remaining 2 files.
