        >Thank you, I guess I will live with it for now.

         

        Whom are you thanking?  For what?  Live with what?

         

         

        >I shouldn't have upgraded my laptop.

         

        How is this related to the missing Adobe Audition forums, or to the New Forum FAQ?

         

         

        Did you write the message on a phone while simultaneously eating and driving?

          It's OK Theo, we sorted it out last week!

            About the file formats allowed in the attachments:

             

            I know Microsoft is the root of all evil, but it would be nice to be able to upload a word processed file  (doc or even rtf) without having to convert it to txt and losing all the formatting.

             

            Also could the forum allow uploads from Framemaker files?   I wanted to upload a template file in .fm  format but the system would not accept it. The forum also does not allow mif so I had to copy and paste the relevent parts of the template into my word processor, then convert the doc file to acrobat, and finally upload it.

             

            Thank you,

              Your best bet there is probably to zip compress the file.

               

              That should make it possible to pass any type file in, I think? (Haven't tried it, but I've used the trick before on other websites.)

                Thanks for the suggestion Eric.

                However, I would like to see fm and mif allowed in the attachment list.

                  Why not request all of the Adobe file formats?

                      From the FAQ:

                       

                      Do widgets like "more like this" and "popular discussions" and "top participants" exact any performance hit when they are being figured out and displayed?

                      Reply from Jive Software:

                       

                      No. In fact these do the exact opposite. If anything, they would be improving performance in the system.

                      I don't get that. Maybe they don't make things worse, but I don't see how they could be improving performance/speed. I'd still  like to see them gone.

                        They don't appear until after the main page has rendered, so they must slow the overall response time down.

                          Also, for me in FF 3.0.10 Windows with all customizations off, the page does not jump to the linked message[1] until after they appear - as you said - after the main page has rendered. I am not sure if this is due to waiting for the JavaScript or due to waiting for the images to arrive from wwwimages.adobe.com. It feels like the latter to me. But then, some of those images are used in the silver nav bar (Your Stuff, History, etc.) and those render far earlier than the boxes in the side bar.

                           

                          And who but company marketing types or bean counters would ever want to know who the Top Participants are? Can't that data be restricted to specific access levels or user types - say, employee? I just can't imagine a case where a U2U...uh... user would find that information helpful.

                            Spent too much time looking for the answer - hope I didn't overlook it.

                                Sorry if I am in the wrong place - I thought FAQs would have the answer.

                                 

                                Anyway if you know how to mark a question answered, I'd appreciate your sharing that bit of information.

                                  When you originally started your discussion there was a checkbox to mark the discussion as a question. If you unchecked that box you will not be able to mark someone's reply as the answer.

                                   

                                  If you left the box checked, there should be two links in each reply that say "Helpful Answer" or "Correct Answer". Click on one of those to mark the replay appropriately.

                                    You can only mark a question as answered if you started the thread, and if you specified it was a question from the beginning.


                                    If that is the case you will see a 'Correct Answer' button available on every post but your own. Click it. This awards 10 points to the lucky poster.

                                     

                                    Like this:

                                     

                                    screenshot_03.jpg


                                    Alternatively you have the option to mark your question as answered at the top of the thread when you go into it, without awarding points to anyone.

                                     

                                    Like so:

                                      Thank you John & Kath... now I see the buttons to click. I'm sure they were not there earlier as they are so obvious to me now.

                                        John, I don't understand why I am suddenly getting all of these Emails. I

                                        haven't posted anything on Adobe.com for ages and probably won't ever

                                        again.. I am getting tired of all of this crap.

                                            Email notifications are on by default. Yes, it's a pain in the arse.

                                                I posted once and have been inundated with Emails since. I am not upset with

                                                you but the entire setup. One thing for sure, I will unsubscribe from

                                                adobe.com. I can find any help I need somewhere else.

Along with the the "set region" that ADOBE says "Check this box, and we will remember your region and language the next time you visit Adobe.com" I note that this defaults back to USA every time I return.

(shorter or longer).

The enterprise has been devoid of a new application category since CRM, and they see the advent of social software as the biggest change to happen to the enterprise in fifteen years. It’s now spanning every major vertical and the visionary leaders are seeing the gains that can be made by opening up collaboration and focusing on the people. This is especially true in a downturn, where throwing more money at business process software is not going to lead to huge value increases — you have to look to the areas where there is the most to gain, the white spaces in a company: the people.
