Watch out IT-people, ReMark is going rogue!!

2. Guess what? It didn't work! Still no images!!

What is going on here? I'm losing my mind. Oops. Scratch that. Been there...lost that.

There must be something else amiss. Must go on the prowl for source of problem.

3. I have not figured out my problem but perhaps this image will help the OP with his problem.

4. This is truely weird. I can clearly see the image I just posted above but still cannot see any of the images posted by the OP.

5. Lets see if you can see this?

Thank you very much! This has definitely cleared things up for me.

9. Hello, i'm also working on that map, and am having trouble understanding what is meant by the following text: "All the roadways in the subdivision have sidewalks that are 6 feet wide. there's a 1-foot buffer between the right-of-way and the beginning of the sidewalk, and there's a 3-foot parking strip between the sidewalk and the curb." How should that be understood, edge of road/curb, then 1' buffer, then 3' of parking, then 6' of sidewalk? that would mean we need 4 lines, and in the examples seen above i see only three lines. I need help comprehending this text please.
Thanks!

You are on the right track. The right-of-way (street line to street line) is most likely 50 feet. From the street line to the back of walk is 1 foot. The sidewalk is 6 feet. The parking strip is probably a combination of 2.5 feet of grass and a 6 inch curb which would account for the 3 foot parking strip. Thus we would have 10 feet on each side of the road or a total of 20 feet used for purposes other than vehicular traffic. 50 feet minus 20 feet yields a paved roadway width of 30 feet which sounds just about right for most municipalities.

I would agree with you that there should be four lines not three. I can only surmise that the street line, the back of the walk, and the curb are being shown and the front edge of walk was left off for some unknown reason.
