News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

Hey all I am new here, so if this question has already been answered or if im posting in the wrong section please let me know.
Anyway I am currently trying to send BTC from my Electrum wallet. The problem is I cannot increase the fee as high as I need it to be. When I go to adjust the fee using the slider in Electrum the slider only allows me to send with a fee ranging from 0.3 mBTC to 1.0 mBTC. The highest fee still allowed is still a "low fee" how can fix this? I want to be able to send BTC with a higher fee.
Thanks guys look  forward to posting and commenting more!

Click tools in your menu bar, then prefrences. A popup window should appear like the one below. Click the fees tab, uncheck "use dynamic fees", and put whatever BTC/KB fee you want to pay in the "max static fee" text field.



When you send coins move the slider all the way to the right if you want to pay the "max static fee" you chose.

I'd recommend that you use the Dynamic Fee feature of Electrum rather than specifying manual fees. It does a pretty good job of estimating proper sized fees and helps take the guesswork out of fees when sending bitcoins. Be sure to use the latest version of Electrum as well which includes bug fixes for the Dynamic Fee feature as some older versions had issues with it.

That's because you are using an old version of electrum. If you don't update you will continue to face problems. Please update.
