1 - Sure, but when I use "email" from your profile or from this board it opens up some email setup on the board, and I can't find the "add attachment" dealie.
You can just copy/paste the text inside the file into a posting here, or a PM, or an email message. You should be able to open the context menu for the file, choose Open With -> Other...
and then select TextEdit
or some other editor. Then just copy/paste into a message. (Make sure you don't tell OSX to always
use the TextEdit command or double-clicking will no longer open the JNLP using WebStart.)
2 - Just to be sure you want the file that I would download from the webstart or download page from rptools. If you want the file that (for lack of a better word) happens when I use the paste-to-play method (as described below), where do I find it?
I want the WebStart JNLP
file. If you follow the instructions on the Launch page of the main web site, you'll get such a file. (Is that not how you launch MapTool when using WebStart?)
3 - Just as a note I do in fact have to use the paste-to-play method and (this next one should have been obvious) I have to be online to start, but not to use once I have started it (until I close it again).
That's because the command line given earlier doesn't include the -offline
option. Put that right after the command name and it'll execute out of the cache instead.
