Hi Helmut.


I presume that you are using Windows-10 ?

An update by Microsoft to Windows-10 around 1st January 2017 has been an issue.

Try this ...



- - - - - - -



Go to your Freerails Gallery

In your Gallery window click on the photo you want to Post

The photo will then be enlarged on your screen

Now ... Right-Click ... a drop down menu will appear

From this drop down menu ... click on 'COPY IMAGE'


Now ... go to the Freerails Reply Window open in another tab

Place your cursor where you want your photo to appear

Then you need to Right-Click again ... another drop down menu will appear

From this drop down menu ... click on 'PASTE IMAGE'


The photo you want to Post from your Gallery should now be in the Reply Window.

Simply repeat the above sequence to add more photos to your Post



- - - - - - -



It seems that an update by Microsoft to Windows-10 ...

... has meant that the previous method of clicking on a Thumbnail ...

... having pressed the 'G' button in the Reply Window ...

... is no longer possible for Windows-10 users.



Si.

Testing Si's advice:


Now, that's the workaround for the 'improvements' Microsoft has put into WIN10. I used WIN7 until a few days ago, and the problem doesn't exist there.
BTW- what you see is the ramp surface, made of 40cm² tiles ( a common size here in Germany ), scaled to TT dimensions of 3.33mm²

Hi Helmut and Si, that shingles you are talking about is it the same as slate rock the British use for roofing nice indeed what you have achieved can you print larger bricks , on our roofing we have roof tiles, the roof framing has to built to take the weight.

Nice work on the  walk way, what is the building you are modelling used for.
Hi Si when we had the anniversary update win10 what stuffed me up from accessing the G button for the gallery and yeah there is a big update due in May wonder what damage it will do.

How was your Easter head to the coast for the four days, I spent a couple of days working on the layout getting closer to the big day., pics to follow after todays effort.

Hi Helmut :wave:


Thanks, I'm pleased it worked.

I believe Microsoft may have removed support ...

... for a tiny little bit of code in the Data-1 software.

Although precisely what ? is unknown.


I started a new Thread about this, in the 'Photo Posting' Forum.

Hopefully the Members with this Windows-10 issue will see it there & use the fix.


NICE paper-cutting BTW !


:moose:


Si.

@Tony M
The building is a grain elevator in TT ( 1:120 ) scale.
Re tiles - the plain concrete tiles are easy to model. To scribe and cut, the Curio has two toolheads that can be assigned to different line colours. So you can use a scribing tool where there must be seams  etc., and the cutter to cut out the whole array. Clay tiles are sometimes different, fishscale is easy, but grooved pantiles need strings of yarn glued in parallel on the roof-face first, and cutouts in thin paper that adapt to the contour.
Large bricks are no problem with the abilities of the software that comes with each Silhouette model.

Salada wrote: Use a lacquer as Helmut suggests. Any solvent based resin where the carrier evaporates leaving an impregnated resin in the cardboard works almost indefinitely in my experience. I usually use shellac in methyl alcohol ...For me, lacquer causes far less paper warping than shellac does.  I use Minwax clear brushing lacquer, usually gloss since it seems to give a harder finish and makes it easier to see coverage. For shellac it is Zinsser clear. Both in quart cans.
I know from the 1:1 scale wooden boat crowd that dry shellac resin flakes can be bought in bulk and mixed to desired thickness from watery to pasty.

Hi Helmut, grain elevator makes a very nice scene indeed  and lots of shunting fun, I have  set of plans for a HO scale of a modern grain elevator will have a go in building it, they are constructed out of concrete  easier to model.

Helmut

Getting ready to tend to seriously ill wife, who is coming home from hospital, so I have fallen behind with FreeRails-

Is the wall brick a commercial product? I don't see how I could make something like that (different height [of protrusion] bricks) with my Curio.
