File size for doc attachments

I know you need to keep a lid on attachment size or the
site can grow to occupy a huge amount of storage but....

I tried to attach a small doc file (camping list items)
and it was rejected due to size.
It was a doc file of 26k
the error said it had to be smaller than 19.5k.

That's pretty small for a doc file!

I changed it to an ugly txt file and attached it
anyway but maybe you can adjust the allowed file size
in the future?
Just a thought.....

Thanks for keeping the forums running so smoothly!!

I agree with Dan. I gave up trying to get a file I was trying to attach small enough so that I could attach it without getting an error message.

The limits have been changed to 50 K. The limit is even higher for pdfs and if you have a way of converting to a pdf, this is the format I'd recommend.

Most scanners now can create pdf files simply by scanning the document and saving it as a pdf.

My newest printer, a Brother MFC-7440N, has the option of printing to a PDF file also. I don't know how many others are doing this though.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

If you are using Microsoft Word 97 or later, you can get a free add on from Microsoft which will give you the ability to save as a PDF.
