I have a Word Document and a PDF of my gear list that I use when get my stuff together. How do post it on the forum? Tried to Copy/Paste but that was a total mess. I'm not very Tech-Savy; more of a borderline moron considering today's world.

Up and to the right, under Community is "Change My Profile". Go there.
It only accepts PDFs, so if the Word.doc is part of the package, you'll have to convert/combine into PDF format.Jan 4, 2011 at 3:59 pm #1680513
That was easier than I thought.Jan 4, 2011 at 4:07 pm #1680517

I find the PDF harder to read, but that can be adjusted, but the Tableizer doesn't preserve column spacing or include text boxes.Jan 28, 2011 at 10:45 am #1689406
I'm trying to update my gear list. I used Greg's first method with the PDF conversion. Trying to put my revised one up the same way. Do I have to delete my old one? If so, how? I went through the process again with the new list and it said update successful, but when I check, it's still the older one. Is there a wait time while the site resets or some crap?
I'm a Techie Moron. Sorry.Jan 28, 2011 at 10:50 am #1689407

I thought you simply upload the new one. It should take the place of the old one? Should be no wait time. Refresh browser or upload again.
