can i say that i really hate clicking on a link and it replacing the d-word tab? i want a link to create a new window. i understand that some people may not like that, but i'm not one of them.

Agree with you Kurt. Currently there is an option if adding links to make it open in a new window.

When you click the link button above, add the link, then select Target and "New Window" and voila, it will show up in a new window rather than taking over this one.

And folks we have heard you loud and clear on the Preview Option. At this point, with the new D-Word platform in the final stages of development, we want to focus our time and efforts on that rather than more fixes to the current, soon-to-be obsolete platform. Your patience and understanding will soon be rewarded.

What happen to the 'hidden section' function?


Erica Ginsberg

It's still there. It's just called Page Break (it's the icon to the right of the paperclip attachment icon). Show hidden content

Oh - so the hidden function is actually hidden! (or disguised) How approporiate. But how will newcomers - or those who haven't been paying close attention to all the changes -  know this?

Kurt, in the new design links will open in a new window by default.

But Niam - I WAS paying attention this time - and I still can't get it to work! When I click on the page break, a narrow box appear but I'm not able to put anything inside it.

You will need to type under the "box" :)

Dang! How would anyone know that? Hardly user friendly or intuitive.  Just hope D Word never has a competitor!  Can't we have the OLD hidden function button back?

In reply to Daniel McGuire's post on Sat 4 May 2013: Looking for DSLR info. I guess I am behind the curve but just bought a Canon Reberl Ti5 DSLR. Cam seesm to have an odd quirk--after recording :30 to 1:00 of video, it  shuts off. Tried two cams same thing. I read that it might be related to the SD cards and that DSLRs are kind of finicky vis a vis cards. Any thoughts?

Marilyn, this topic is for questions related to The D-Word platform. Your question belongs in Cinematography.

Oh, sorry - I thought I was there. Oops :)

For some reason I can not post to Cinematography alough I can post to the Editing section.  Any idea why.  I am a cameraman as well as a Editor so do both profesionaly.

Ben, only thing I can think of is you might have accidentally clicked on the Hide link at the bottom of that topic.  I'm not sure what the step is for Un-Hiding a topic, I'm afraid.  Perhaps one of the other hosts (or Peter himself) could step in with that, or if they have any other thoughts on the matter.


Erica Ginsberg

To un-hide a topic, select "Settings" (small type in the upper right corner of this page).
Then select "My Topics & Subscriptions" from the "My D-Word" section on the left.
That will take you to a list of all the topics. If you see that "Cinematography" is unchecked, check it. (Note there are two checkboxes - one for seeing the topic on The D-Word and one for getting e-mail notifications when there are new postings. Unless you are an infrequent D-Word user, you probably don't want to check the e-mail notifications, especially for a busy topic like Cinematography.)

The other possibility if you are not a regular user of The D-Word is that you clicked on a topic where there are a lot of postings and you aren't at the last page. If you want to reply to someone else's posting, just click the blue arrow next to where their location is listed in their posting. If you want to post something new, make sure you are at the very last page. You can get there quickly by clicking the last page button (kinda like > with a vertical line after it -- just before it says "Back to Topics List.")

For the life of me, I can't figure out how to do a multi-word search. E.g. "Film" plus "Transfer", where posts would come up with both terms.

when you hit the reply button, it doesn't take you down to your post automatically, like it used to so you end up hitting it a couple of times, then you realize what happened and you go down and there's 3 or 4 'In response to....' attachments in your post and it's super messy. i'm seeing a bunch of those now. and i've done it myself a few times. sucks.

Strange. It worked for me. What are the specs on how you are posting (PC or Mac, operating system, browser, etc.)


Erica Ginsberg

In reply to Mitch Teplitsky's post on Mon 12 Jan 2015:

"Film+Transfer" or use the tags. Now, of course, the current search functions are imperfect so that may not be as quick at getting something relevant as just posting the query again (as I saw you did, already with some responses).

That's it, thank you Erica! I was trying to combine words with + or with " "....but I see you have to use both.  And the tags, geez, forgot about them.

Hi, I want to make a post asking for infomration on tehcniques for renting out your equipment (both from a legal perspective and marketing perspective as well as a classifieds).  Not sure which section to post in.  Ideas?


Erica Ginsberg
Wed 14 Jan 2015Link

If you have specific legal questions, I'd post it in the Legal topic. Otherwise the Professional Classifieds might be the place. Just not in both places.
