The font and size editor pop-up display of choices used to come up or down automatically depending how far the page was up or low, but now I have to either raise or lower the page in order to access my choice in view.

BTW...Excellent job on the new features...!!!!

I've been in and out of the scene so I haven't covered all the ground, but seeing tid bits here and there.

    EDIT: I meant to say only raise not low, because the view is always under my screen having to raise it. So raise it is...

      I personally agree with you, but since I am not the author of the editor, there's not a lot I can do.  I have built add-ons like the emoticons, the preview, the layout/styles, and the SmartQuote cleanup, but if I go and change the the core editor code, I won't be able to upgrade to the next release when it comes out.

      Another thing I personally would have done is to make the drop-down boxes longer, so they can fit all the entries without scrolling.  You can see my work in that area by clicking the drop-down arrow on any of Lottery Post's paging controls, like the ones on the forums and topics pages.  When there are many choices, it expands the box a great deal.

        I have to say that I always learn when you exbound. Seems that the detailed work you have done out weighs others  which seem trivial.

        Keep up the great work Todd !

        P.S. I'm probably just lazy. Maybe spoiled even...lol

        Todd, I'm waiting for voice recognition. That'll be the bomb.

          If you want voice recognition, just buy Windows Vista -- it comes built-in.  I tried it, and it is pretty creepy how good it is.  The ultimate is to open Word and start speaking -- and watching it type what you say.  (It gets even more accurate when you spend 20 minutes to train it to your voice.)

          You can surf the web by voice, but unless you really need to use voice, it can get a little tedious to describe exactly which link to click.

              Just like....

              "Recognize speech" ? OR-

              "Wreck a nice beach".

              There is some work that needs to be done with voice recognition. The above example is how a computer might mistake the two scenarios.

              I'll put Vista on my "eventual" list. I'm getting there...lol
