Trouble with Add to Group icon?

Trouble with Add to Group icon?

Hmmm... I'm having trouble adding my new work to groups. I'm given a list with about a third of my groups when I hit the "Add to Group" icon, and I can't see a way to get to the rest of my groups without going to each group's individual URL and manually adding my work there. Not convenient if one is a member of umpty-eleven groups. Some of the groups in the list that the system provides are groups of which I am no longer a member, so the options that *are* provided are not up to date, either. I haven't found a way to type in group names like I have always done with the older version of DA. Has anyone played with some of the buttons and gotten all of your groups to show up, or a way to type in the group names like we used to? Not the widget for one's main page - I mean through the "Add to Group" icon. I've opened a ticket with the helpdesk, but I know they're up to their eyebrows in problems and it may be a while before I hear back from them. I've looked at this

Print Prices and Information

Print Prices and Information

Last update: May 2020 I have prints available for most of my artwork. I make my prints with an Epson P800 Surecolor printer, and I have some left over from my Epson 2200. The ink these printers use is archival, and the photo paper is acid-free. If the prints are kept dry and out of direct sunlight, they will last at least eighty years. My prints are all limited editions, and are numbered in series of either 50 or 150. Each print will be signed and numbered. All prints are matted, and the measurements below represent the mat size, not the image size. The image size will vary from title to title, but will be of a size appropriate to the matting. The mats are designed to work with standard American frame sizes. All matted prints are in protective plastic art bags. Not all sizes are available for all artwork. For example, if the original art is only 5x7 inches, I don't typically make the print images larger than that. However, I am willing to make them larger upon request, as long as

Long time, no chat. I wanted to drop a hi and tell you I bought one of your dragon coloring books from Amazon. I'm just waiting on my new pens now.

Good to hear from you again!  I hope you enjoy the coloring book.  Good luck to you, and happy coloring!

This one has a number of dragons I digitally colored in it. I'm hoping to replicate them as close as possible.
