Hi Guys, looking up here....

How do I get email notification of ALL ZW3D posts?
I don't want ZWCAD, just Z3 stuff and any new posts - automatically into my Inbox with perhaps the first two lines of the post.
If you wanted to make it really nice, allow me to un-subscribe from any thread.
I don't use RSS as it requires me to open and look at yet another program.
Email works great or at least it could/should...

Cheers

Hey Wing,
SUGGESTION - set up an Online ZW3D Help on the Forum Page.
Then we can make links to that Directly in the post so users will be taken to the Help when they follow the link.

There is this link; http://www.zwsoft.com/zw3d/knowledge-base/user-manual/
but is is NOT the User manual - so I don't know why is says that!
Cheers

Hi Paul,

In http://www.zwsoft.com/zw3d/knowledge-base/user-manual/, the default tab(content) is user manual:
QQ截图20140721160004.jpg
2014-7-21 16:00



Do you mean that we should rename this tab?


Regards

Wing

Hi Wing,
OK I guess you are correct in that is is the Help content. Kinda awkward the way it is done ...USER MANUAL aka ZW3D HELP ?
I was expecting a mimic of the HELP system that ships with the software.
The most common way I find info is by phrase or word search.
The link you provide has no such facility unless you are very Google skilled.
A proper Wiki IMO is a better solution.

e.g. site:help.zwsoft.com fillet



OK, how this works is explained by this guy Anson on YouTube.
The green text remains always the same. The blue is the search term.

The challenge is we need to remember how to do this - so I make the successful search a Bookmark and edit the search term for another search.

And is the online HELP the most current version? - always?

Cheers

Hi Paul,
I am wondering if those two new posts are your own reply to your thread. Only when others reply to your post will you get an e-mail notification. If those two new posts are others' replies to your post, I wanna ask you if this problem happens again.

Hi Sally,
I do not need notification of self posts as you say. How ever I did not receive a notification of your post!

I was referring to email notification of any NEW threads so I know when to visit the forum.

Cheers

Hi Wing,
I figure we should be able to search Online HELP directly from the Forum pages and even whilst in a post - have it open in a new tab.
