Can we access answers section of the magazine digitally?

Postby vjones777 » Fri Dec 07, 2012 2:41 am

Is it possible to get the text of the Answers section of the magazine digitally? I would have expected to find the same 'answers' that are printed in the magazine to be on the Help>Answers section of the coverdisk - but that's not the case.
I've tried searching the coverdisk for several of the answers that have been printed in the magazine and never found them. Since only the first part of the question shows when browsing in the answers section, I've tried searching for just words in the question - no joy.
I've tried several editions of the magazine. Thinking that the the DVD may lag the magazine publication, I've also tried searching subsequent months.
I also can't find them at

I often see excellent answers that I think I might need later, which I'd like to save. The only way I can find to do that is to scan in the paper page! Am I just being daft or is this a big oversight? Is there any way to get access the answers in the paper copy on the DVD or on-line?

This has been bugging me for a while, especially as the quality of the answers is great.

Incidentally, it would be nice if the searches in the online database (link above) could be filtered by date range or magazine issue.

Did you happen to read Mike's sticky (the 4th) at the top of this section?
