Problem Printing Images in Open Bible Stories
Posted by: Mondele

Some people will have a problem printing Open Bible Stories because the pictures don’t appear. While we are working on a better solution, here is a workaround.

Download the zip archive file from https://git.door43.org/Tech_Advance/Tips_and_Hacks/raw/branch/master/Modified%20OBS%20Images.zip

Take the `.jpg` files contained in the archive and move them to the appropriate folder on your computer.

  • On Windows: `%localappdata%\translationstudio\images\obs`
  • On Mac: `~/Library/Application Support/translationstudio/images/obs`
  • On Linux: `~/.config/translationstudio/images/obs`

Once the images have been copied to the proper folder, you should be able to print Open Bible Stories from translationStudio on that computer.

This article will be updated once the problem has been resolved.

More Visa requirement tips

In Congo, Brazzaville, I was expected to have a transit visa, but did not. They allowed me to buy one there — $40, if I'm not mistaken. However, they then connected me with one of their "baggage handlers" who shook me down for more money. My advice is to get the visa...
