Ever since I tried to do a screen shot I can't post a picture from off the web,says it has too many characters and needs to be under 30,000 characters. I'm sorry I even tried to do it now because I'm not smart enough to fix what I broke...

Alt+S is still broken. I've been using that feature on forums for years. I"m so used to it that I've lost posts because I hit Alt+S and closed the browser tab thinking the post was submitted.

Why do you use Alt+S instead of the Post Reply? It seems like if you took the time to write a reply you'd want to make sure it was accepted. Closing the browser tab after posting seems especially short sighted... The alt key shouldn't be considered a day-to-day function.

Heck, I've been so paranoid of losing a post (because it takes me hours to type it sometimes!) that I started using "CTRL C" (copy) every single one before I hit Post Reply in any forum. It got so bad not long ago that I started using "CTRL X" (cut) so I was sure that I was getting the job done saving what I'd typed.
But that was more of a keyboard/user problem than any forum shortcomings.

But I do have one suggestion. I use the Forum Jump a lot, so would like to see it show up higher on the screen. Just below the "Edit Tags" line would be great, so scrolling down is not needed to access it each time.

Thanks

Paul

Because I'm old school and I get more done using the keyboard.

Alt+S is a forum feature that has been working for years. It's broken now. Hover your mouse over the Post Quick Reply button (seen when you aren't quoting a post) and it will still say (Alt+S) is a shortcut for pressing the button with the mouse.

Every once in a while when I've typed a long post I'll copy the text before posting. I've been burned before so I understand why you do it.

The site looks like other IB sites, the old FTE was sort of unique and I was so used to it.

Can you guys make a DOS look for April foolsʻ day. Do some of you remember when they changed "Ford" to "Chevy" one year?

Any way IB, keep up the good work!

Um, keyboards with the ALT key have been around longer than the mouse. Keyboards are just plain faster. There are data entry functions that would be absolutely crippled without the ALT key.

The context was posting on forums, not data entry.

Um, posting on forums is a form of data entry....

Back on topic, the quick reply editor window at the bottom of the thread page doesn't seem to appear every time. Evidently just as of today.

Agreed. Posting is a form of data entry. Thank you for supporting this.

I still see the quick reply editor and have have been using it today. By quick reply I mean the multiline edit box that allows you to post a reply with quoting a prior post.

Hmm, now the QR editor is appearing normally. Shrug, maybe it was a one-off thing with my browser.

I hear ya! I use ALT+S all the time when sending emails, so I'm so used to it. Took me a while to figure what was up when it quit working. Such a PITA when you are used to it!

The ALT key has so many uses, it's pretty short-sighted to not use it. Those of us who use a keyboard all day every day get used to these shortcuts and are lost without them. You should see how much folks who really know how to use a keyboard use the ALT, CTRL, Fn and Window keys. Very short-sighted not to take them into consideration.
