Quilt With Us

Is anyone else having trouble downloading free patterns on here? I never have before, but can't today! They all come up as "cfm" files, not "pdf" files, so all I get is script. Never has happened before. I have a Mac & my adobe reader is upgraded & all that. DH is a techy & checked everything, & still the same, cfm files? So wanted to let you at CT know, so hopefully, it can be fixed soon! Thanks in advance!

Cindy, where do we find that page? I honestly looked, all over this site, before I posted here, & had no luck finding it! So, if you let me know, I will gladly post there too! Thank you so much in advance!...

when you have a problem, go to the admin. page and send them an e-mail so they can fix the problem. They really do appreciate it when we let them know when something is 'off'.

Yes, Carol, thank you for emailing the pattern. It's funny how some computers like the files and some don't. My computer (don't tell it) is not as smart as I think the newer ones are.

I've had problems with that before too.  But if I do the "save as" and then open with Adobe, it seems to work.  Hope you got what I emailed you Barbara.

Okay, just played with it some more after reading Cat Lady's post, thank you. I click to download, then told it open the file, using Adobe Reader app, & it opened right up. Then, went up to file, & clicked on "Save as" & that worked... I have a Mac, by the way, so this worked on my Mac...

DH also said, they probably have someone new, & young, doing this now & learned in school to save everything as cfm files, & that person needs to be told by CT, to save them as PDF files, for ALL of us. Hoping they read this & fix the problem soon, so we can all go back to printing from pdf files, like we always have here...

I was also able to download the files.  They do come up as a cfm file, but if you hoover at the bottom of the page you should see a line of icons appear that will let you save or print the file.

Barbara, it downloaded OK for me.  If you send me your email address, I'll be happy to forward it to you.  jcvic@frontier.com

I have tried several times to download one of the patterns. I don't know if it's my computer or a problem with the link. The one I have been trying to get is Minnesota star or something like that. It's the picture that advertises the free patterns.
