Complete failure .lbxoeb rejected as invalid file type; insert media function does not allow the selection of multiple files ... so much for a legit test.

Just put all the files into one zip file and post that.

I've been trying to avoid zipped files in order to let everyone pick and choose the files of interest to them and not clutter their Logos libraries with things they'll never use. But if forced to, I'll zip them ... or simply send links to my own web site - a solution I don't see as being in Logos' best interest.

Yeah, well the media button isn't really an attachment function, is it? It just happens to be a fortunate workaround for a functionality that doesn't yet exist. Until Logos provides us with that capability then I guess we're stuck with its limitations.

Embedding links to my site is what I've been doing for years (although I haven't contributed anything major for a very long time). It just seems more reasonable than cluttering up a news group with tons of large attachments (even if the group was created for that purpose). The thing that I find inconvenient is that many times we pass small attachments like scripts or XML files back and forth for quick fixes and such. The forum workaround just makes that task more complicated. I guess we'll see how it goes.

By the way, you need an avatar. Here's one that I think might suit you.
