    I've been able to bookmark a few, but the last months or more I only get a tiny little box that will not enlarge and allow me to save it! This has been on a couple different computers. . . Am I the only one having this problem?

    Celeste,
    This is how I do it. Click on 'Bookmark It' and when the little box comes up in the upper left corner, click on the 100% and it will increase to 125%. Then scroll down and across until you see 'UPDATE'. Click on update, then hit enter. This works for me.

    Minda,

    Thank you for responding. Where is the 100%? The only thing I see is "Title".

    I have the same problem. I could never use the bookmark
    It has a little square also.

    The 100% shows up at the very bottom of the little box, actually in the frame of the box.

    The 100% is at the very bottom of the box in the beige part. Bottom left says Internet -- bottom right says 100%. When you click on 100% it will change to 125%, and then you will be able to scroll across and down.

    I took a "picture" of my screen with the bookmark on it so you can see - - no beige part or anything . . . Maybe it's the Apple computer thing.

    3incollege, do you have an Apple computer?

    Celeste,
    I'm not sure how you can bookmark without being able to scroll. My bookmark insert is small, but it shows more info than yours. Possibly it is an Apple thing. I'm interested to see if 3incollege also has an Apple. Sorry I couldn't help. :(

    Thanks Minda! I know I would have been really mad at myself if I didn't at least try to get some help!

    I guess I'll start a new folder for email to put the reply messages in so I can find what I'm interested in and keep my inbox not quite so full! :)

    Minda, I don't have an Apple. Mine still doesn't work, I just looked again and there is no gray area. I just have a blue area that has minimize,max and close. I try that and it doesn't do anything. So I guess I can't book-it.

    Here's what I do. Click on Bookmark It! When the tiny screen comes up click somewhere on that little screen. Then hit enter. You'll get a box that says you bookmarked that. Took me months to figure it out, but it works! :wink:

    That's what I do too. I'm working with an apple MacBook and sometimes I'll tab until I see the word "yes" and then hit enter. It works!

    My computer must be odd! I click on Bookmarks and get the small box in the upper left corner. Then I "right click" on it with my mouse and select the bookmark option from that list. This adds the topic to my regular Bookmarks list. From there, I click on that and get an Update box that lets me save it...that adds it to "My Bookmarks" here on the Quilting Board. I can erase the one from my regular Bookmarks later and it stays put on the Quilting Board here.

    Whew!!! And now that I've read about the short cut, I went and tried the Click And Enter idea and am SOOOO happy to report it works! Chele, you saved my sanity, or what's left of it! :roll:

    Wow, thank you so much everyone, i haven't been able to bookmark either, all i get is exactly what celeste showed in her photo, and our pc isnt a mac. Anyways, all i get is the little box, no scroll bar, nothing, so i tried what someone said, i just clicked anywhere in the box, nothing happened, then i hit enter, and bingo, said i had a bookmark! Thanks guys!
