    Thicknesses

    I cannot find a conversion table for:

    If something is 100 mils thick, how does that translate in inches?

    Re: Thicknesses

    Ya oughta ask yer questions in the correct forum, Chuck... <img src=/S/anigrin.gif border=0 alt=anigrin width=19 height=19>

    In MY Firefox, I don't have any popups blocked nor do I have any extensions or add-ons for doing so. BUT, in my Tools, Options, Advanced window there are two places where I've told FF to open a new TAB (see attachment). When I'm composing a post and click the TagPanel link it opens a new tab. Anything I select in there is added to the text field of the "composing" tab. Works OK for me.

    Edited by <!profile=WyllyWylly>WyllyWylly<!/profile> to make link active. Thus spake the "gods of the forum." <img src=/S/anigrin.gif border=0 alt=anigrin width=19 height=19>

    Joe:

    duh... and I thought I had tried google http://www.digitaldutch.com/unitconverter/index.htm worked great...

    BTW... Whenever I try to use the TagPanel in Firefox, the tabs/windows/pop-up blockers screws all around, and the panel hides from me... so I just entered the link... the panel (I) works fine in IE, but I haven't yet gotten it to cooperate in Firefox....

    Re: Thicknesses

    I'm still running 1.0.7 but I see your screen has the same content that I was highlighting, so go ahead and give it a try. Nah, after all this, I'm not gonna move the thread. It's already been moved once, so we'll just let it rest for now...

    Re: Thicknesses

    Multiply mils by 1000 to get the measurement in inches.

    Undoubtedly I have some extension that's causing an issue, 'cause I've got pretty much the same "check marks" as you do, but, as stated, I end up having to switch over to IE to get the TagPanel to behave.

    I'll try to isolate the issue and let you know -- (another thread / form perhaps?)

    I found it:

    It's in the way you tell TBE "never use new windows" or "only when I say so" or "normally"...

    Chuck,
    To be correct I should have said that a mil is one-one thousandth of an inch. i.e. 1 mil = .001 inches
