    Tips and Techniques FAQ - Yes, the Link Section is broken

    Okay, we're getting a lot of repeat questions lately, which is a good thing... it means we're getting a lot more users. So to help all of you new guys to this section of PencilJack, here are links to threads that deal with Frequently Asked Questions.

    If your question isn't here, go ahead and ask about it with a new thread... if a question gets asked enough, I'll add it to the FAQs list. Feel free to suggest a question to me via PM if it looks like I forgot a big one in this initial list. Also, I'll continue to add to these links as new tutorials and such are posted. And of course, you can always add your advice in any thread.

    At a later point I'll come back through and replace the raw links with the thread titles, bear with me. And let's keep this thread strictly for links to threads that deal with various questions.

    Still need to make all those raw links into text links... It's not that difficult (all I have to do is go in and add the VBB url code), it's just one of those time-consuming chores.

    Finished converting all the raw links, and new ones will be added with text, so now you know exactly what the topic of the thread you'll be headed for is.

    And it only took 3 months!
