    a cry for help

    Hello all users!

    I am in the course of translating into Polish a fragment of the certificate for a stop valve. I came across a table but since you cannot see it, it is no use my trying to explain to you what I mean. It is in PDF format but I do not know how to post it on the forum so that you can see it.

    I have already tried to post a drawing on this forum, in vain.

    Could you tell me how to do it effectiely?

    Thank you.

    My best suggestion is that you bring the PDF up on your screen, take a screenshot, save the image and then insert the image into your post.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Inserting the image into my post is the most difficult part. I have really tried to do that.

    Click on "Go Advanced". Look at the middle line of icons. Near the end, you can see the two hyperlink ones (they look like globes). The next one along which looks like a painting in a frame, is "Insert Image". Click on that and follow the instructions from there (click Basic Uploader, Choose File, find the image on your computer, double click it, then click "Upload File(s)" and it will appear in your post wherever your cursor last was.

    Like so many operations, it's a lot easier to do than to explain.

    Pardon me, but why not just The next one which looks like a painting in a frame, is "Insert Image"?

    I don't know what 'along' here means. Is anything wrong?
    I am not a teacher. If there is anything ungrammatical in my post, please correct it. I am grateful for your help.
