    Default Pocket Query question

    I have seen it mentioned a lot about previewing your pocket query before you submit for publication but I can't seem to find out where to do that. Is it on the query page? I can preview it but only after submitting it. Am I missing something? I never previewed my unfound caches in the state and now I am wondering if I am indeed getting them all. Maybe a screen shot of where to do the previewing is in order. Thanks

    (Maybe you can teach me how to do a screen shot! LOL!)

    But it's easy to do this.

    #1. Go to the pocket query page. You'll see a list of the pocket queries you have saved. At the top of the list, to the left, is the word "preview". You have a choice of either previewing the query itself or in Google maps by clicking on the icon.

    #2. Also on the pocket query page, BELOW the listing of your pocket queries, you'll see a listing titled "Pocket Query Legend". Read the second line under that.

    So simple, even a cave man could do it!

    If you want to preview the query before it is run, just deselect ALL days for the query to run. You can then preview the qeury without losing any of your PQ quoto for the day. Once you are sure the query works, select the day(s) you want it to run.

    Do a search for MWSnap and download it. It is free and easy. I love how easy it is. Click on a button to tell it if you want a window, just a section, or the whole screen. Click on another button to capture and it highlights the spot you click on. Then go click on the Save As button and there ya go.

    For what, I still can''t see where the preview is on the page yet. Unless I'm not on the correct page.

    Do it like you are making a PQ, but do NOT select and Days to Generate, then hit Submit Information. It'll be in your PQ list, then you select preview from there.. its the little yellow thing with the green arrow pointing right...



    hopefully this will help...

    Ok now I get it Sue. I was on the other page where you select all the things to make your PQ and didn't see any preview. Thanks and Thanks to bruce and Dave as well. Sometimes it takes me a little while longer is all.......
