How to attach files to your post

Recommended Posts

You can drag and drop files directly into the text editor:


  • Command-Shift-3 for a full screen screenshot
  • Command-Shift-4-drag around an area of your screen
  • Command-Shift-5 to crop an area of your screen


  • Download LICEcap or Kap (both free) to make quick .gif animations

  • Upload a movie to YouTube and paste the link to your post

Logic file:

  1. Make a copy of your file and remove all unnecessary tracks and regions
  2. Save the file organized as a folder. 
  3. In the Finder, go inside the folder, Control-click the file and choose Compress. 
  4. Drag and drop the .zip file to your post

David it seems like Cmd-Shift-4 no longer works. It's now Cmd-Shift-5.

There are different methods for taking screenshots: Command-Shift-3, Command-Shift-4, Command-Shift-5 ... they all work as expected here including Command-Shift-4 which allows you to easily drag to select the part of the screen you need to capture.

Which of these of these steps make the file solid and ''selectable" for attachment? That's what I need in order to attach the file to a comment. It doesn't seem to be such a complicated detail.

If it's a Logic file, follow the paragraph that starts with "To attach a Logic file...".

.mov and .mp4 not accepted? I wanna share a screenshot video...

It's 18MB btw


Two solutions for sharing a video in our forum:

1. Use LiceCap (free) to capture an animated .gif and attach it here as you would an image.



2. Upload your video to YouTube and embed it to your post:


if the video URL is www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ then write:


PS: If you would rather not have YouTube visitors see your video, set it as Unlisted.

David, Thank's for getting back to me. This is the first Logic forum I joined. I closed all my windows and then when I reopened and all the regions were green and I was able to record and play back. Weird, I have no idea how this happened. 

Your book looks interesting. I am wondering if it has info on file storing but mostly on figuring out which windows to open  when working. Sounds ridiculous but I sometimes find my file opened with a smattering of windows and I'm not sure which ones to use. As I said before, I'm fairly new at this but finally and fiercely  going after it. I've had Logic for quite some time,

Thanks! Sorry with no borders, the screenshot isn't exactly elegant.

For anyone on a Firefox browser on Windows or Linux, and has privacy.resistFingerprinting in about:config set to true, you need to set it to false to be able to upload piks.
