Where to Download (Windows or Mac)

Use your browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc) to log into your account at Quilter Log In (top right of window) to download and save the Inklingo PDF on your computer (not in the cloud).

If you just placed an order, you might already be logged in. If so, you just need to click on “Your Account” at the top right.

There are separate instructions for opening on Windows and Mac below. ((Inklingo will not open on a phone or tablet or iPad. Maybe some day.)  FAQ

There are no refunds once a PDF has been opened, for obvious reasons.

1. Make sure you have Adobe Reader/Acrobat. (Any other PDF viewer will not work.)

If not, download the latest free version from http://get.adobe.com/reader/ 
TIP If there is an offer for extras like free anti-virus, you can skip that part.

WINDOWS 11 UPDATE NOV 2021 If you have upgraded to Windows 11, please update Adobe Reader too by going to Help > Check for updates.

Linda Franz Inklingo

PLEASE EMAIL ME at linda@lindafranz.com

The quilters I worry about are the ones who have questions but who don’t contact me. I am happy to help, so you can enjoy Inklingo.

Please give me as much detail as you can. For example:

  • What happens?
  • What kind of Internet connection? (Cable, satellite, dial-up)
  • Which browser?
    (Safari, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, etc.)
  • Windows or Mac?
    (Inklingo will not open on a phone or tablet or iPad. Maybe some day.)
  • Which version of Adobe Reader?
    (Look under the Help tab.)
  • Any error message?
  • Which PDF?

The more detail you can give me, the faster I can help.

HELPING YOU IS MY TOP PRIORITY.
I REPLY ASAP.

Some ISPs are extremely aggressive with SPAM control, so if your email address is @Charter, @xtra.co.nz, @optusnet.com.au etc, my replies may be blocked even if you wrote to me first. There have been some cases when quilters thought I had not replied when I had. 

If you don’t hear from me, please check your junk folder or write again. In some cases, they don’t even let an email get as far as your spam folder. 

When quilters need help, I always reply. Always.
If you don’t hear from me, it either means I did not receive your email or my reply was blocked. It is a good idea to provide a phone number or FB messenger info, just in case we cannot connect by email.
