Hi, I have a number of sage notebook worksheets in my old ubuntu laptop. I need to get a copy of them to my new ubuntu laptop as well as to another win8.1 laptop. Need to work with then locally without internet connection in my boat, so it's a critical issue for me.

The easiest way to do this is probably to click the link "Download All Active" toward the upper left. If that didn't work, you could click the checkbox above the list of worksheets and then click "Download". In either case this will make a zip file of worksheets, which you can then upload to your other laptops in one move.

Thanks. I tried both ways withut result. I've Sage version 6.4.1 in my Ubuntu 14.04 and I used Google Chrome browser latest version. After pressing the "Download All Active" the page moved to htttp://localhost:8080/ and stopped there. (same thing when trying to download the worksheets separtely). No such a file was found and the content of the page was empty (tried to save the page from the browser). Could this be an issue with the browser?

Aha! That probably means there is a problem with your worksheet titles with a non-ASCII title. Can you (slightly) change some of the titles and try this? Alternately, you can of course download each of them individually as well.
