    Hello, just refer to me as 16!

    [PABLODRAW V3.X]
    I’m learning how to use this application and like many of you, I had a few questions to get the format/coding to show up as needed that’s not really online to check against so I figured I’d share my input here:

    Let us begin [This is for reference for those that need a guide like this!]
    ___________________________________________________________________________

    Lesson One : How to save your Pablodraw art as nfo [iNFO]
    _________________________________________________________

    [I didn’t see this feature in the save options so here is how to do such:

    1. Once ready with your project completed to save, go to upper left corner
    2. File > Save As.. > Leave bottom dropdown menu as “Auto Detect”
    3. Name your file as YOUR_ANSI_ART_PROJECT.nfo *** The .nfo formats it correctly ***
    4. Open your favorite view like nfodiz and you should now see everything as you drew it.

    ___________________________________________________________________________

    Lesson Two : How to save your Pablodraw art as msg file [ welcome.msg file for GLFTPD]
    ___________________________________________________________________________

    1. Once ready with your project completed to save, go to upper left corner
    2. File > Save As.. > Leave bottom dropdown menu as “Auto Detect”
    3. Name your file welcome.msg *** .msg at end of name is important ***
    4. File > Save As.. > Leave bottom dropdown menu as “Auto Detect” ***
    5. Name your next file welcome.asc and save *** Don’t use ascii dropdown option ***
    6. Open new welcome.asc from nfodiz or ansi editor of choice and then copy/paste whole design into your welcome.msg file
    7. Save new copy/paste design over old code format. This should now show up correctly when viewed from terminal/DAMN NFO Viewer/NfoDiz/Notepad++.

    ___________________________________________________________________________

    These are two tips I wanted to share that’ve learned along the way and wanted to give ya’ll those few tricks for anyone designing for a special site or group.

    Thank you,
    p16!
