Questions about TanglePatterns eBooks

  • Please read this before you contact me about the TANGLE GUIDE:
    • For a detailed description of the TANGLE GUIDE and its contents, go to its page on the BOOK REVIEWS menu at the top of any page
    • As instructed on the eBooks ordering page, and on your order confirmation web page, and in the email you received with instructions and your download link, and in the introduction of the Guide itself:  make sure you have thoroughly read the page titled “How the Guide works and a few fun ways you can use it”. The blank squares are explained so you understand how the GUIDE works. The introduction on page 2 also contains tips for printing the Guide.
  • If you didn’t download the Guide from your browser when you purchased it, look for the automated email that was sent to the email address you used with PayPal. It contains the download link. If you don’t see the email in your inbox check your junk/spam folders.
  • If you’re having problems getting the links in the eBooks to work, search Google for a solution. This has to do with your software and not the eBooks and usually involves adjusting a preferences setting in your PDF reader software.
  • If you had trouble downloading the file, please search your computer thoroughly before contacting me. Usually it turns out that the file downloaded just fine but you don’t know where it was saved on your computer.
