Now we are cooking, even though this is only 2.7MB. Thanks to the techie(s) who boosted the limit for jpg pix.

However, pdfs are still limited to 500KB.

Only if you dragged it from Dharma Paths or copied it. When I go to my files it will not be accepted, the Status button says too big, file limit of 500KB.

The secret to the fix may lie in Dharma Paths setup, for there is a much higher file limit there.

Not yet. After downloading the place Inline button does not appear, and the Status button remains yellow, not green. When the Status button is clicked on it still says too big & 500KB limit.

But DP, DWE & DWM are working - 3 out of 4 is pretty good.

That's strange, it's working okay for me. Maybe someone else could try? That way we'll know if it's something with your account or something we still need to do on our end?

Since you are not trying to access directly from your computer or mine (of course), that would be the test. Someone needs to try, from their own PDF files, to attach a large 2MB or bigger one.

Try it in a different browser, perhaps Chrome, if you haven't tried that yet.

I only have Safari now, besides Bhikkhu Pesala says in above post, that the limit is still 500KB.

I get the same error message in Safari and Firefox, so it's not the browser and not the individual user.
