Please HELP! nPDF issues with ndless 4.5
« on: November 14, 2017, 12:10:42 am »
I hate to beat a dead horse but I've found no answers that helped me so far. I am trying to put .pdf files on my TI-Nspire CX. I've installed ndless along with nPDF, however when I try to move a .pdf file into my calculator it doesn't work. I tried re-naming the file to .tns but it seems to automatically change it to filename.tns.pdf. So that isn't working for me either. Can someone please help me?

You only just posted your questions yesterday. Forums don't have instant response time. That said, I don't have an answer for you myself. I don't really do nspire stuff. Does the program come with instructions? Do you perhaps need to convert the PDF using an included tool before sending it over?

*Edit* I read through the original topic and it seems that all you need to do is rename it. Just add a .tns to the end of the pdf file and send it over. If it isn't working with TI's provided linking software, maybe try using third party linking software.

I'm not a nSpire calc owner either. But in reading your problem it sounds like the .tns needs to be at the end of the file (i.e.  filename.pdf.tns).

When you open Windows Explorer do you see file extensions or not? If you don't see them, then you'll need to configure Explorer to display the file extensions... once you do that, you should be able to add the .tns extension to the end of the initial extension. This might allow it to transfer to the nSpire.

Yeah I tried adding the .tns to the end of the file. However it would just automatically change it back to "name.pdf.tns.pdf". In other words it automatically adds the .pdf at the end when I try moving the file from my PC to Calculator. It's so frustrating.

Edit: I figured it out. I just had to go to Control Panel, Appearance and Personalization, File Explorer option, then show the extensions from there on the view tab. After that I was able to rename .tns and that would change the file so my calculator would accept it. Thank you guys for the responses!
