    This is an awesome feature. How does one attach the drawing to the post though?

    There should be a green save button at the bottom and then upload as attachment

    Does anyone else not see the save button. Here is what I see using Chrome 41

    Looks like the save button doesn't show in IE or FF

    I'm using the latest version of Chrome and only see the save snapshot button. It works and saves it on my HD. Now I'm going to upload:

    Is that the way it's supposed to work, by going through the upload after closing the whiteboard?

    Correct, you must save and then upload. There is no real connection to PF.

    With Firefox version 36.0.4, and Adblock Plus disabled... This what I see when I click... WHITEBOARD.

    Yeah for the free version there is a very low session amount. I am kind of waiting to see if members find it worthwhile before upping it. But I guess that is difficult when you can't access it at all.

    It's not an issue for me, Greg... :oldsmile:

    I'm barely able to negotiate in the standard "Post Reply" text box... Lol

    I've upped the available sessions and submitted a ticket for support on the save button

    ok the save button should show for everyone now, I just needed to add a little length. I'll make a full announcement and how-to tomorrow

    There's a problem with Firefox if you are viewing with a less-than-100% zoom factor. In that case, the bottom of the whiteboard is missing. I routinely use 90% zoom on Physics Forums and find the bottom 10% of the whiteboard is missing.

    I might have to ditch the pop up and just load it in a full window. Do you get scrollbars?

    No, not when I enter at 90%.

    If I then zoom in to 100% and then back out to 90%, the vertical scrollbar appears.

    P.S. I should clarify that "the bottom 10% is missing" means that about half the "Save Snapshot" button is missing.
