How to mention someone in GrabCad (All possible ways)

Small

I've noticed that many "GrabCad"ers still don't know how to mention each other.
Some just type his/her name, while others copy his profile's URL !!!
The problem is that every place has it's own way, so I've gathered all possible ways to mention another user in GrabCad.

  1. Step 1: Posts

    In posts, there is only one way to mention another user, but it is also the trickiest way; took me many tries to find it out...


    Copy the user's profile URL, then paste it in the model's description. It will be shown - outside "edit mode" - as the user's name.

    Long way, but the only one.


    By the way, models could be linked in the same way:

    Copy the model's URL, then paste it in the model's description. It will also be shown as the model's name.

  2. Step 2: Comments

    Comments too have only one way to mention another user, and it's the exact same way used in posts.


    Copy the user's profile URL, then paste it in the comment. It too will be shown - outside "writing mode" - as the user's name.


    Models too are linked in the same way:

    Copy the model's URL, then paste it in the comment. It will also be shown as the model's name.

  3. Step 3: Challenge comments

    Challenge comments too have only one way to mention another user, and it's the exact same way used in both posts and comments.


    Copy the user's profile URL, then paste it in the comment. It too will be shown - outside "writing mode" - as the user's name.


    Models too are linked in the same way:

    Copy the model's URL, then paste it in the comment. It will also be shown as the model's name.

  4. Step 4: Q&As

    Questions too have only one way to mention another user, and it's the exact same way used in both posts, comments and challenge comments.

    Note that this method can be used while answering a question too.


    Copy the user's profile URL, then paste it in the questions. It too will be shown - outside "writing mode" - as the user's name.


    Models too are linked in the same way:

    Copy the model's URL, then paste it in the question. It will also be shown as the model's name.

  5. Step 5: Tutorials

    Here it is a bit tricky; as GrabCAD has somehow forgotten to turn hyperlinked text into blue, but clicking on it will still open the hyperlinked page.


    In the tutorial's description and comments, you'll have to copy the user's profile URL, then paste it in the tutorial's comment. It too will be shown - outside "writing mode" - as the user's name.


    Models too are linked in the same way:

    Copy the model's URL, then paste it in the tutorial's comment. It will also be shown as the model's name.


    In steps, you'll have to write the user's name, select it and click the "attachment" button (the one looking like a paperclip)

    Now paste the user's URL in the box that appeared.

  6. Step 6: Private Messages

    Private Messages have the easiest way; as it can - finally - link to web pages, e-mails, etc.


    Copy the user's profile URL, then paste it in the message box. It too will be shown - outside "writing mode" - as the user's name.


    Models too are linked in the same way:

    Copy the model's URL, then paste it in the question. It will also be shown as the model's name.


    Web pages too are linked in the same way:

    Copy the web pages's URL, then paste it in the question. This time, it will be shown as a blue URL.

  7. Step 7: Groups (1st way)

    Select the user's name

    Right clicking the selected name, then click "Copy"

    Then right click in the typing area and click "Paste"


    Tip for Lazy ones:

    Press Ctrl+C to copy, Ctrl+V to paste.

  8. Step 8: Groups (2nd way)

    Write the user's name

    Select it and click the "attachment" button (the one looking like a paperclip)

    Now paste the user's URL in the box that appeared.

    The advantage of this way is that you can call him anything, not just his name...

    i.e. My friend, Bro,"first name only", etc.
