      Just post them in your Blog.

      If you want to post an image, since you're a Platinum member, you can upload the image to the LP server:

      1. When posting your message click the Insert Image button
      2. When that box pops up click the browse button Browse (only visible by Platinum and Gold members)
      3. You can upload images with thew upload button Browse
      4. Then, just click the Image you want to post, and click Insert.

        Unfortunately, the copy and paste functions are locked out in the Lotto Pro program. I believe that once you've wheeled your picks, there is a save feature on that screen that allows you to save it as a text file. But I don't have the program in front of me right now, so I may be wrong about that. Look up at the tool bar, where the print icon is and see if there is a disk icon.

        I'll check it tonight and let you know.

          There is a save ticket icon at the top left.  Unfortunately, I can only save as tics into Lotto Pro. 

          Tried to save onto desktop, but can not open the file.

            Lottaloot,

              This was the best I could do. The zeroes were inserted by the program. The combos created was a 4 number wheel for a straight. I used Notepad and opened all files in the folder where lottopro is stored. Files are *.TIC

              Lotto Pro will print your play files to a printer or file for the printer.  If you can read that file on your computer screen then you can copy it to clip board and to NotePad which can be pasted in your post.

                    I think I know what RJ is talking about. When you have your ticket on screen, click on the print icon. When the print window opens, you have the choice of sending the output (your ticket) to the screen (Preview, I think it's called) or to the Printer, or you can select "File."   After you create the file, you should be able to open it with notepad, Word, etc.

                    Again, I don't have the program in front of me, but I think these options are selected on the left side of the print window.

                      lottaloot,

                      I stopped using Lotto Pro sometime back and started using a program I wrote using GWBasic.  As a test to see if I could do what I thought you could do I ran smart pick for Ohio SLP and previewed it before I sent it to the printer and could only copy it to WordPad as a picture and not a text file therefore I couldn't post it as such.  I then looked at the *.tic file with NotePad and saw the following:

                      041432454648

                      __________________________________________
                      I then edited it by hand to get the following:

                      __________________________________________
                      I guess you will have to copy the *.tic file with NotePad and edit it by hand or write a program to do it for you.  The first line of the file will tell your program the number of lines, the second number will tell it the amount of numbers per line and then it can start to rewrite the file at line 4 putting a space between the numbers.  I would also change "Ohio Super Lotto Plus" to something like "OH120505" to identify the file and the date it was created or played.  Good luck.

                        A program to rewrite Lotto Pro file might have the following:

                        1 Input name of file to rewrite *.TIC
                        2 Open file *.tic as a sequential file for input
                        3 Read first 4 lines if line 2=3 then replace the "0"'s in 1st, 3rd and 5th pos with "", if line 2=4 then do the same with the "0" in the 7th pos also
                        4 If line 2>4 then place a space between every 2 characters up to the amount of line 2-1
                        5 Do what's in line 3 or 4 for as many times in line 1

                        Since I know GWBasic I would write the program using it, but Q-Basic, Visual Basic or some other high-level computer language might be better.

                          I checked last night and the "Print to File" function is disabled on the tickets screen. However it's enabled on the Check for Winning Tickets screen, meaning that in addition to printing the wining tickets report on paper, you can print it to a file.

                          I am going to email the Lotto Pro support group and ask for this function to be enabled. Once a set of tickets has been generated , the program should allow us to copy and paste them into any editor or word processor, or at least print them to a file. You shouldn't have to jump through hoops by programing or editing the .tic files to get the output you want.
