How to mark your topic as 'Solved' ?:
- Open your Topic thread.
- You'll find an option "Topic attributes" at the bottom right corner of the page.
Note: this field is only visible for threads where the first post originates from you!
- Set (or clear) the Solved-icon by changing this attribute. Possible values are: None, Solved, Good Posting!.
- Members should not post topics with "Me too" messages or putting their e-mail address in a message asking for some files or documents. If you want to contact the author of a message, you can use the private message feature of this forum.
- Members are welcome to use the test forum for general "test purposes". These may include checking signatures, testing a link or image, etc.
- When posting questions to a professional forum it is vital to format the question and it's content in a proper way in order to greatly increase the possibility for quickly receiving a good answer, and thus saving you time and frustration.

- otherwise people with the same error can't use search to find your topic, as you can't search in images
- Members are asked to not post messages with only "thank you" or "welcome" as content, as this doesn't add any value to the thread.
