I can`t confirm this bug.

Could you please copy your project settings ("INCLUDED filter of *3*.jpg").
Select the Project, click on the Copy button. Paste the project settings in the forum.

You have disabled "Text" in "File Filters". In my opinion, this is never a good idea. Instead I use DeleteAfterParsing=... in the URL field, if I don`t want to save any HTML file.
In your case, you should enable File Filters | Text, change the setting in the Location box to "Load from any site" or "Load only from the starting server" and disable the Text filter again, else OEP can`t find the links to the desired files (Your wrong setting: "Load using URL filters settings")

Bingo. That worked. Thanks Oleg.

However, I`m curious since if your "In your case" method worked while text was indeed disabled, then why is it "never a good idea"? What is the advantage of using "DeleteAfterParsing" if the the disabled text method seems to work just the same?

Also, why are you posting as "Anonymous"?

Good.

Of course you can do it in the way you like it. It`s only my opinion, my behaviour. A disabled Text filter only leads one to believe that OEP wouldn`t download any Text files; however the Text files are loaded anyhow in order to be parsed (unlike the other disabled File Filters). So I never disable the Text filter, if I have enough free disk space. If something is going wrong, I can better analyse why this happened. I can also subsequently delete the Text files; they are loaded in both cases anyhow. In specific cases I use DeleteAfterParsing, in order to filter unwanted files (and not only standard Text files), but also files with specific file extensions (which are produced mostly by scripts). DeleteAfterParsing simply offers more possibilities.

> Also, why are you posting as "Anonymous"?

Because I *am* "Anonymous" and not Oleg?! ;-)

(Of course I know that I`m not "anonymous" in any way. Oleg could simply find out who I am. ;-)

No problem. Nevertheless, this is a "User-Forum" and the answering of questions through other users should be natural. If I have some free time, I sometimes answer a question; exactly as also some other people do here in the forum. And if it decreases your time that you have to spend in the forum: all the better. It occurs, however, that I (and also some other active users) am not online for weeks (for different reasons). Without your uninterrupted excellent support - I think that *your* part of the answered questions represents surely more than 95 percent - wouldn`t be such a good information source as it is today.

So, in every respect : Thank *YOU*, a thousand times!
