Yeah.... It's your computer....... :tearlaugh:
Rule number 1 when you work in ANY kind of "tech support" role: "It's ALWAYS the other guy's computer."
Rule # 2: "It's ALWAYS the other guy's software / router / ISP / etc."
Rule # 3: "It's NEVER our software / hardware. It always works perfectly."
Trust me on this..... :thissmall: :AEN: Makes you want to  :kaboom: the hoser on the other end of the phone when you call in for a little support.  :shrug:



If all is not lost, why can't I find it??  :thud:

I love those that talk to you like you are just another stupid woman that knows nothing and then even sound condescending. I wait for them to take a breath since many interrupt or just use all their hot air up.

Then I start in telling them all the troubleshooting I did prior to calling their little bodies and really laugh when they tell me that clearing the computer cache via terminal for mac or run in windows they did not know of that. Then I tell them that even now I do some tech support for apple forums and started with a possessed computer so they are really my last resort. :ifonly:

Along the centuries I've learned to byte the bullet and accept the 'local' rules as they are without trying to argue them - it's just a waste of resources.

Even more of a waste is trying to communicate with those airheads supposed to provide technical support: occasionally the thought crosses my head that all they have is a microphone, for they seem unable to hear whatever you're trying to say. Or maybe it's just a kind of occupational disease, I don't know.

However, more to the point: I never suspected that there was an automatic paragraph space feature in this forum software, so whenever I need to separate two paragraphs I just hit 'enter' once more and that's it.
I use the 'toggle view' only when I need some special effect for writing directly in html is a PITA and I'm as lazy as the next centaur :smile:

Are you talking about the 'paragraph feature' where you set up what your indentations are and how many spaces it goes down? That's the only 'automatic paragraph' feature I can think of. That goes with Word and to some degree Word Pad, not any forum software I was ever in - not at Rendo, here, DSA or anywhere else. Even if there was any such thing, you would still have to hit Enter or Return twice to tell it you want line space(s) there...wouldn't you? It can't read your mind that you want a paragraph without hitting Enter.

I'm sorry if I'm being dense but I just don't get it, otherwise.

that was what I was trying to get SMF to understand.hit return/enter 1 time to drop to next line, hit it 2times to get the line space between the paragraphs but I end up hitting the thing 3 times to get it to set right. once or twice still will not give the paragraph line.

Mary I have had the same issue at both forums. Complained in the threads I was responding in about it. 3 CRs to skip a line. Happens with 3 different browsers on three different OSes.  FF, IE, Chrome on W10, W8.1, and W7. It doesn't appear to be script blockers either. I run them on everything and their removal makes no difference. Any less than 3 CRs and there is no new paragraph. Just one big run-on WOT

Ohhh.

Well, I don't know what to tell you. It works like that for me, I shall affirm.

I have no idea what you're talking about, Mary.  :lostme:

I don't have any problems.

Is it a browser issue? Or is it the SMF?
It's because we use smileys (that put immediately 1 line of difference in a direction or the other) or put ourselves a line between 2 paragraphs.

I never saw there was an issue because I go to the line, then the line again if necessary with the keyboard button. I saw well the button with other buttons above smileys, but never sought to know what it was  :shrug:
