    I've tried to upload a PDF to this thread http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/showthread.php?t=89472 Tried four times to get it to upload. It is a good file, opens fine in my computer. But after around 3 or 4 minutes, I get a message that the file failed to upload. There is also a box at the bottom of the manage files page saying "attempting to connect to All About Circuits".

    Can one of the mods help?

    Yup, was going to suggest that. You've exceeded the maximum file size.

    Thanks guys. I guess it was over at ETO that I uploaded it before. Wish the manage files page had told me that, instead of calling me a failure. It hurt my feelings. :)

    There is a list on the bottom of the Attachment manager, listing allowed file types and their maximum sizes.

    For .pdf it's 5MB.

    My feelings about those file size numbers, has always been, "MB? We don't need no Mb" ( from the movie,Treasure of the Sierra Madre) :D
