Hi Jeff can you edit the binary file you receive? I've noticed
that files sent from Macs have extra characters at the beginning
of the file.

Attached are two pictures of how mwx files should look like
from the inside. One shows the hexadecimal codes. What I do
is leave 4 bytes before the "m" and remove everything before

  • To save an attachment to your computer, PC users should right-click (Mac users, click and hold the mouse button) on the link and then choose 'save target as' from the pop-up menu. A window will then pop up in which you can choose a location for the file.
