Ask Alexander downloads

Postby Scott M. » September 23rd, 2012, 6:08 pm

Is it no longer possible to download back issue Genii pages from Ask Alexander? You used to be able to download up to ten, but the download button isn't showing up for me anymore.

I'm not sure what the download button used to be, but I just did a right click and selected "Save pdf as ..." on a Genii page and got it fine.

I believe that feature may have been removed due to misuse of downloads (people downloading a whole book 10 pages at a time). You'd have to email the Conjuring Arts Research Center to confirm.

You should be able to print out and/or download single pages as pdf files.

Thanks for the responses. Yes, there used to be a "download all pages in a collection" option that's now gone. I'm also not able to download single pages, even by right-clicking. I guess I'll email them and ask.

Okay, I seem to be able to save a PDF in Firefox but not Safari and Chrome.

Thanks -- I just checked again, and now I see how to do it in Safari. Previously I was trying to do it from the link and not the page itself. I guess I was confused by the removal of the download button.
