What software are you using to read your mail? I receive digests every day and they still look fine for me. But if you can tell me what you are using I might be able to see if I can solve your problem.

Am I the only person who is seeing all the D-word topics in a big alphabetical list now?

Working here – you can organise by category, posting date or Topic Name – click at the top underneath Discussion Topics

oh thanks – I didn't even realize those options were up there. Must have clicked it by mistake with my crazy iPad.

Hi, where can I find information on d-word on making a master DVD using Compressor and iDVD? I don't think my Quicktime file to iDVD workflow is yielding the highest quality HD product for replication. I feel like I've lost something in the output, but I can't be sure. Thanks.

You can ask that question, but I would suggest asking it in the Final Cut Pro topic, which seems to be where the Apple software post-production questions end up. This topic is for silly people like me who can't figure out how to navigate this extremely well-designed website.

Okay, please don't judge me but I cannot figure out how to join the d-word facebook page – can someone please help me? I've used FB help but their directions don't seem to apply since I can't find the icons they refer to one your page.

As long as you are logged into FB, you just need to click on the "like" button just to the right of "The D-Word"

to move a discussion from one topic to another, linking between topics in other words, how does one do this with a track pad on a powerbook? The instructions say 'right click to copy', but with the track pad? Thanks.

Like on any mac, hold down the Control key and click.

Even this PC guy knows that! ;-)

Ben, I NEVER use the right click on the mac. thanks.

I'm doing some research on production pricing for documentary film making. Some films claim it cost them 1.8 million and some $250,000 yet quality and substance seem to be the same. Does anyone have a pricing model I can research that would show me pricing for low budget, mid grade, and high end documentary films? Help????

Is it possible to upload an entire film so that festivals and potential TV buyers can watch it? We don't like to send out DVDs anymore. Previous films have ended up as bit torrents.

Folks, this is definitely the wrong Topic – as the note above says, this is solely for questions about The D-Word.

AJ, your question is so wide that it's doubtful that there's a simple answer out there, but for future reference such queries go in the Mentoring Room Topic.

Dietmar, as a Professional this should probably go in Marketing and Distribution . Double posting is discouraged, but as this is in the wrong place you can repost there.

Yikes – for some reason the camera topic has disappeared when I log into the site. Any ideas?

Check "my topics" from your homepage and make sure you haven't accidentally hidden it.


Ron Osgood

Thanks Marj – don't know why it changed but that was the solution.

Easy to do if you check D-Word from an iPhone. I do it all the time.

Wish there was a separate SAVE for "Current Location".

Only seems to get saved after a post. Often I get thwarted somehow and forget to update, then I've posted and would have to post again to save it, so I don't and then forget to update next time. Not a big deal, just noticed when I realize I need to update, I am not able to do so.
