Marathon Threads

I am not affiliated with Marathon threads in any way, except for being a very satisfied customer. Because I mainly use Marathon Rayon threads and because I give Marathon thread numbers in my color charts, I am giving a number of addresses where people can buy Marathon threads, if they wish to.

When you use Buzz Tools to unzip files.

Please read, copy and print these instructions!!!
Many people, who unzip their files with Buzz Tools, complained that they didn't get my color charts. Please read the instructions below, as this will save us all a lot of inconvenience, and agony<gg> The instructions were sent to me by Lisa Shaw, of Buzz Tools, and from the Buzz Tools Tech Support.

Buzz Tools will display the Word .doc files (and all sorts of other files) if when you create your catalog you choose *.* under all supported types.  Buzz Tools will then display the filename of all the other files within those zips (i.e. JPG files, PDF files, DOC files etc).  You won't see the contents, just the name and type of file.  Now you can go to Tools > Extract and all the contents of the zipped file will be extracted INCLUDING the .doc files!

Here are the step by step instructions, sent by Buzz Tools Tech Support:

1. Open Buzz Tools and create a New Catalog.

2. In the Select Files dialog box choose *.* from the pull down  menu next to Files of Type.

3. Select the zipped files you wish to view and click OK to create your catalog.

4. If there are other formats included in the zipped files (Like PDF, DOC or JPG files for example) they will display as file names.

5. Go to Tools > Extract to unzip the contents of these zips.

Another thing to note is that if you have a file association set up so when you double click on a .DOC file it opens into Word, if you double click on it in Buzz Tools it will also open into Word.  The same for the other formats, AS LONG AS you can double click and open in Windows Explorer, you can double click and open in Buzz Tools.
