Fusion Builder button has disappeared and all I see is code

 

Sound familiar? You changes something in Wordpress and now the fusion builder button is not appearing in your post or pages, instead all you see is code. I’m not talk bout the little Fusion shortcode generator button, I’m talking about the big Fusion Builder button which allows you to build pages using the Fusion Builder, you’ve lost it, it doesn’t even appear at the top of of your Wordpress post or article. Sound like the issue?

Worry not. I might have the solution.

Change the texture of a duplicated prefab in unity (How to) #unity

by Andrew Brett Watson

Fix the problem that changing a duplicate prefab material changes the material on the original

Help! I can't change the texture/map of a prefab I duplicated without also changing the original Prefab in unity game engine!

Does this sound like the problem? You duplicated a prefab in Unity and when you go to change it's texture, map or colour you find the original prefab changes too? You ask yourself; Is this an instance? Are the prefabs connected? Do I have to somehow ungroup them, disconnect them or break them?

How to export html and run it off the Hard Drive with Mail Designer from Equinux

by Andrew Brett Watson

Are you using Mail designer or Mail designer pro (the Mac app by Equinux) and want to do a test? The easiest way I found is to output as html and then double click the HTML file so you can test the email in your browser.

There is just one problem. How do you set the path so that the images are displayed when you output HTML Mail Designer (normal and Pro 3) from Equinux and open the file locally.

 Mail Designer from Equinux export html dialogue

The solution is simple. The path to put into the “Export design as website” dialogue so that it will work locally is ./

It’s as simple as that. To make the email html file work off you hard drive when using Mail Designer from Equinux jus put ./ as the “prefix images with” path.

Putting ./ in the “prefix images with” are of the Export design as website dialogue box will tell Mail Designer to write that into the code and now when you double click the html, it will load up perfectly.

Cheapest printers to run (lowest cost of ownership).

by Andrew Brett Watson

So, I made a short video because one of the biggest problems people have is finding a printer that is cheap to run. At home or in the office the problem generally with home printers is that they cost to much to use.


Because I've been in the printing industry for twenty years, I know the one thing you need to look out for when you want a cheap printer. It's not the cost of purchasing it, it's the running cost. This video shows a new type of printer which drastically brings down the running cost making these printers the lowest cost per page and the cheapest printer to own and run.


One thing I will say though, they aren't fast. If you're organised like me, it's not a problem. Where I work it's a different story. They suddenly want pages and pages of print without any warning and they are always complaining about how slow the printer is (so the are going to replace it with a machine which will cost about 150€ per month more for the same amount of print).

Anyway, if you want a printer with the lowest per page cost, this is it. It's great for the home or office just prepare for the fact that it is slow:

Reset the toner, Drum, Belt Unit etc on Brother MFC printers

by Andrew Brett Watson

Brother printers have a habit of telling you they are out of toner when there are not. If your brother printer give you the “out of toner” warning on the display panel or light then you won’t be able to print until you change it…. unless…
Unless…you reset the toner:
