Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.

There are a few things with the built-in GDML code that are preventing me from switching to its use. Are there plans to address any of the following in near-term releases:
1) support for the <assembly> tag (see post 986)
2) support for the <expression> tag (see post 970)
3) I used to be able (with the old stand-alone GDML) to define a quantity:
<quantity name="xWorld" type="length" value="1.0" unit="m"/>
then use this quantity when defining a solid:
<box name="sWorld" x="xWorld" y="xWorld" z="xWorld"/>
The new built-in version of GDML doesn't seem to like this, but I have many complicated geometry files that are written this way. Is this a missing functionality or am I trying to do something improperly? I know about the <variable> tag, but a <variable> doesn't have a "unit" field.
