Many thanks

I have just got a set of two linear scales and a display unit. Has anybody any expertise on this set up. I have powered on the display with one of the scales connected but I can get absolutely no movement of the display when the linear scale is moved. This is the same on both channels with either of the scales connected.

During the setup it asks for the baud rate to be set, I didn’t think his would be relevant with a ttl input?

I have contacted the vendor but as yet I have had no reply.

Any Experts out there?

How true I am on my fourth set of pinions for the Dark Lady, having done major reworks on my dividing equipment. Maybe one day it will be finished. The only problem then is to find another project

I can confirm that the print function on Pocketmags is working on Firefox


16/02/2019 09:44:45

I have tried the link you suggested, the Print function went through OK bur the results were just blank pages except for a header and the date and time at the bottom of the sheet.

I hope it is not me creating the problem, I am using Firefox.

If the pocketmags app never had the facility to print a single page how come I have been doing it for the last few years?

I hope the problem will be resolved soon, and am encouraged to here that Neil is on the problem

This is a copy of an email received from pocket mags that puts the problem back in the publishers court

I would like to ask a question on this forum. I am trying to read the magazines from the ME site but all I am Getting is a blank grey screen after a message to swipe the screen for page turning. I am using Firefox on a Samsung tablet.

Has anyone got any ideas as to how I can get to the Archive?

Use PrimoPDF to print your Pocketmags, that way you can produce your own PDF copy to keep.
