  1. Okay, 'hate' is a bit much, I don't hate it, it's quite nice actually. The only thing that spoils it a bit for me is that the lines on the grid pattern are just a touch too strong - I like mine barely-there. And if you don't like grid at all, you're SOL when it comes to this notepad because the paper only comes in grid. There is a punch available (from Rakuten) but it only punches like one sheet at a time, not even business card thickness, so not something you could ever use to MYO refills. So, what to do? Get another A7(ish) wire bound notepad, cut off the rings to liberate the pierced p
  2. From the album: The Answer

    You can just drag an image file from a folder on your computer into the WYSIWYG post editor, and drop it exactly where you want it to be embedded as an inline image.

    How-to: Unfollow threads en masse

    From the album: The Answer

    In answer to this: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/357211-managing-followed-content-method-to-delete/
  4. From the album: The Answer

    On the upgraded FPN forum platform, raw HTML is no longer allowed. However, you can still turn your inline images into hyperlinks that point somewhere other than full-sized copies of themselves, and it is in fact easier now to control the size of your inline images than before. The illustrated method works for inline images irrespective of whether they are FPN gallery images, attachments hosted by FPN, or externally hosted images that were inserted by URL.

    Quick way to ignore a fellow forum member

    From the album: The Answer

    The quickest way to put a fellow forum member on ignore is not to actually visit his/her profile page, but simply: find a post, or activity stream entry, in which his/her profile photo (or tile) appears; hover over the profile photo, without clicking on it, and wait for the profile ‘speech bubble’ to appear; click on ‘Ignore user’, which then takes you to your account settings' Ignored Users page, with the user's name already filled in; select the categories you want to ignore for that user; and click Update Preferences. There is no equivalent short

    How-to: Insert image using a mobile device

    From the album: The Answer

    Take note: after you have uploaded the image from your mobile device, you still need to click on the plus symbol on the attachment to insert it into your post, with the cursor being the insertion point. (The illustration was done in the Safari browser on my iPad, but the procedure is essentially the same on iOS and Android devices alike; I tried it using Google Chrome on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S.)
  7. From the album: The Answer

    You can copy-and-paste image content from the operating system's clipboard directly into the WYSIWYG editor. What you paste thus will be saved as an attachment in PNG format, with the generic filename image.png. If the operating system allows you to do so, you can select a part of the desktop, and take a partial screenshot that is copied onto the clipboard, then paste it into your post.

  8. From the album: The Answer

    This is essentially what to do when using a tablet or phone, and you want to attach an image that is only in the device's storage, but cannot use the drag-and-drop and insert-image-from-URL methods.
  9. From the album: The Answer

    You can drag an image file from a folder on your computer, and drop it onto the attachments catchment area in the WYSIWYG post editor. Once it has been uploaded, you can the reposition the cursor, then click on the plus button for the image you want to embed as an inline image in that spot in your post.

    Just drag and drop. (Yes, I realise now that I misspelt the name of the ink.)
  11. From the album: The Answer

    The WYSIWYG editor will automatically attempt to make sense of any URL you supply while composing a post. In the case of images, it will attempt to retrieve the resource (hosted on FPN's server or externally), and insert it inline where the cursor is; just give it a moment.
  12. From the album: The Answer

    To insert an (either externally hosted, or previously uploaded by you to FPN's server) image by URL: Click on the Other Media button in the bottom right corner of the WYSIWYG editor panel. Select ‘Insert image from URL’ on the pop-up menu. Type or paste the URL into the thus-named field in the pop-up dialog box, and click on ‘Insert into post’. (In this example, I inserted an image that is hosted on Google Photos.)
  13. Learning Copperplate As promised, I am adding my Copperplate lessons here. We will start our study of Copperplate with the small letters i.e. the minuscules. I have divided the minuscules into four groups. The first three groups are based on strokes common to the group. The last group contains the letters that do not share a pattern with other letters - these are the misfits. The process is that students will study each lesson, do their practice and submit the assigned words for feedback. Students move on to the next group only when sufficiently proficient with the current one. Each gro
  14. Here is a tutorial on how to repair a pen I love: Wahl Eversharp Doric Second generation with plunger Filler. Hope this could help the aficionados... And please forgive my bad English... Properties of the filling system: The filling system looks like early Onoto's: it is kind of "reverse syringe" called the "one shot vacuum filler" by Eversharp. To fill the pen you have to pull the piston syringe, then dip the pen in ink and finally push the piston: it fills with ink. When you push the piston, a vacuum is created behind the piston which is released as the piston comes close to the proximal
  15. As a pen and ink artist, my aim is to help people discover drawing simple landscapes with pen and ink as a creative and relaxing hobby. I have created completely free tutorials that help absolute beginners get started drawing with pen and experience the pleasure of putting your creative expression on paper. Let this be your new year resolution In the following, you can see how easy it is to draw simple bark texture and trunk with pen. Learn to draw other elements of nature with pen and ink and get started today. Have fun Rahul www.pendrawings.me Drawing a tree trunk with pen and ink
  16. I am very happy to announce release of completely free course for learning to draw pen and ink landscapes. You can get an overview of the course in this video and access the course here. Starting today, I will present activities from this course in my weekly posts. Do follow along and start your creative journey today. We start by looking at some of the choices for pens to use for drawing. As you become more proficient, you can try different choices, but to start with, it is sufficient to have a quality gel pen and a small sketch book to practice. In this video, I discuss some of the choic
  17. This thread is about people who are willing to contribute with a link and possibly a short description to: articles, posts, discussions, technical articles, pictures, diagrams, videos or other instructional info, armamentarium needed, etc anything that could be relevant on ways to add flex to a fountain pen nib. Everyone's input will be highly appreciated. Any link deemed useful for someone when they tried there own flex nib modification that they are willing to share with the forum will be welcome here. Hopefully at the end, the list of references accumulated will help pen users to hav
  18. Hi all, I am excited to announce my upcoming class on Copperplate Calligraphy. This 6-hour class will be held at Wonder Pens in Toronto. This is a Level-1 class where we will start our study with the structure of the minuscule letters. Both beginners and practitioners of Copperplate are welcome. The class is limited to 10 students. This ensures that I will be able to spend plenty of time with each participant. Further details are available at: Copperplate Class with Salman Khattak I hope to see some FPN'ers there. - Salman
  19. I decided to take some pictures while I was making a simple pen box for my father's birthday. I was so happy when I found a Parker 45 (that was in great aesthetic and functional condition) for my father's 45th birthday. But there was no box so I needed to make one myself. If you want to give away fountain pens without a box, maybe this simple tutorial can help you. I managed to finish this box under one hour and I spent nothing, every material and tool that I used was found at home. 1. Materials needed: - coloured cardboard - some kind of foam (polystyrene, thick cardboard, etc) - piece
  20. I would love for this to be made a pinned topic so all who enter can quickly find tips on photographing their pens.
  21. I was given a beautiful 1927 Waterman 512 1/2. I replaced the sac after the nervewracking process of getting the section off. I inked it up and have enjoyed writing with it but I know there is more to flex nibs than just normal writing. Where would you lead me for the best instruction on different writing styles for flex nibs and their care?
