Qtopo problem.

A question for the Queensland membership here re Qtopo.
Has anyone used the Qtopo site over the past few weeks and have you been able to successfully download maps. I have been unable to finalise maps at the final process.It all works until the final process when it is supposed to make your map and email it.
Qtopo says there is no problem their end but I have tried various computers of mine, friends and at work with no success, I have never had problems before.
Thanks in advance.

not QTOPO but have you tried QLD Globe for a similar printed result?

https://qldglobe.information.qld.gov.au/

I dont use Internet Explorer/Edge so QTOPO is out for me as I think it needs silverlight????

Thanks Phil, but according to the Qtopo people all normal browsers (chrome and Firefox in particular) should work.

Worked in Firefox - make sure you dont have any pop-up/advert blockers as it wants to open a new window for the preparation of the map

I used this URL http://qtopo.dnrm.qld.gov.au/Mobile/

Never got a result using this URL in Chrome or firefox - http://qtopo.dnrm.qld.gov.au/Desktop/

Silverlight never gets loaded - I assume it might if using IE or Edge browser

It worked ok for me, using the /Desktop/ URL in Windows 10 and Internet Explorer with Silverlight installed.
I used 'Create a Printable map' with both A4 and A1 and Current Scale and 25000 and pdf. It emailed a link to me.
I also used 'Download a standard map sheet', and typed in the map name. It gave me a list to choose from. I selected one and it downloaded correctly.
