Hi Todd thanks for the promo, I guessed it was my lazy fault using the site but I do tend to do things my way as I believe seeing is believing I will try next time If I can get motivation to do it, it looks like everyone has the same trouble as me trouble as me If you get my point.
Many thanks for the helpfull advise what did I say was needed perseverance....
I know, when you start using the editor it feels like it should do what your desktop Windows software should do.
It's a blessing and a curse, because even though it's nice to have a graphical "WYSIWYG" editor, it's impossible for a web-based forum site to have anywhere near the power or "perfect" behavior of a Windows program that gets installed on your computer.
The LP editor is much more capable than most forums on the Internet -- for example, it even has an auto-save feature now, which is almost unheard of on the web -- and so technically-speaking, I always stand in awe of what it's able to do. But for someone who is not a technologist, it can almost seem under-powered -- like, where's the missing features that I get in Excel?
So all I can say is that the editor stresses the limits of what is possible on the Internet, while I try to balance that capability with the need to support antiquated computers and web browsers that people should have upgraded a long time ago. If you go to some other forums and try out their text editors you'll see what I mean.
