After I Drop Objects They are Not Visible. I Have Lost Them !
They are not lost, they are just not visible. Most probably they are embedded in the floor. First you must remember which object you just dropped. The go to the "Public Objects" tab, Highlight the Object, Right Click and Click on "Move". Use the Arrows to move the Object "Up" until it appears, then put it where you want it and Click the "Check" to Save the Change. If your Objects are often becoming embedded it is possible that the point of view of your Avatar is set too low. You might try Right Clicking on your screen and using the "Movement/Slide" commands to raise your Avatar before you attempt a Drop.
Take an "Instant" Picture of Your Home/People?Colony City
I have to thank MauveCat and Edion for teaching me this trick. To take a picture, use the "Save Screen Image" command of something like a "Good" Paint program. It will probably be saved as a .jpg file. It then can be saved, printed, or sent to your friends via an Email Attachment, or instantly via ICQ as a File Transfer. This is so cool because you can have a friend over at your "House" and take a picture of you and then instantly send it to you by ICQ where you can view it. Or have the friend take a picture of all the assembled friends at your party and then you can post the picture on your photo album on your other Home Page !
