    Hello all - I need a computer boffin's help urgently!

    I have a google map of the UK Sites attached to our web site - and it has been requested that I attach a .pdf copy of each site to the 'bubble' of information for that site.

    How do I attach a .pdf copy of one of our site pages to a google map 'bubble?

    Do I upload it to Picasa - how do I get it from there to the Google bubble?

    To attach a web site is easy - but how do I attach a .pdf?

    Anybody know?

    Dick

    I got that far already, Jim.

    I can attach the picture to the bubble but what I cannot do at present is get it to print a proper 'full-size' A4 page - all I get is either a thumb-nail or a ¾ size page printout.

    Cracked it, thank goodness

    I found that by uploading the page to Acrobat.com as a host site - then downloading the page (as it appears on the 'click' in the site bubble) to my own specified location, I can print a full size page from there! :RollEyes:

    I now just have to visit about 500 sites in both Guides to attach the page locations! :Doh:

    Many thanks for your help, anyway, Jim - much appreciated.

    Thanks for the update Dick, I was trying to figure it out ... easy when you know how.. :Laughing:

    Perhaps the way forward for the BPG is to have it on line with Google map links .. save you a lot of hard copy publishing, mail costs and easily updated ..

    best of luck with the project :Smile:
