What happened to the ability to cut out a block of text in a reply? You know,for instance if you have typed several lines and then decide one sentence should be snipped out and pasted elsewhere in the paragraph.Only option now is to backspace it out and retype.I thought we had it before, and also a  'Copy' button to copy text before posting?

 

I also thought we originally had the ability to attach a file to a reply?

Testing a response to your query. I've typed a bunch of text and a portion of it will need to move to another portion.

 

 

I'm going to insert something right here: text and a portion .... Worked just fine.

 

About the attachements, are you not seeing an "add attachments" link below the tag section when you reply?

I don't have a way to cut a portion out and insert where desired.I can use the Insert Code to copy into and insert but not the same results as snipping and pasting_much like a web mail interface  has.

 

Buttons at top are Font Family,Size, A,B,I,U,ABC.Insert Code,Paste from Word,Smileycon,Ruler,Insert link,Insert Image and then the usual paragraph formatting tools.

No,I don't see the Attachment option below Tags.Some others don't see it either because I have been asked about it. 😞

Hi,

When I'm in edit mode for a reply (like I am right now), I'm in graphical mode and not html mode. I simply highlight the section I want to copy and then do a ctrl-C and then Ctrl-V to do the copy/paste. You are right, there isn't the normal little snip icon, but using normal copy/paste should work.

 

I've checked into the attachment idea. Right now, the permission needs to be set to allow people to add. We released the forum without that ability except for the admins and mods. We are currently looking into adding this permission for higher ranks and will let you know what we determine. What are your thoughts?

 

Thanks,

GarenT

The question of attachments came from a couple of BSF users that I suggested move to this forum.The guys were struggling over how to exchange emails to transfer a driver file which was too large to add as attachment in the thread (BSF has that option,with 1MB limit).

 

I mentioned PM function and some of the other goodies here.The guys promptly moved their subject over here and quickly resolved their problem via PM.They seemed quite pleased with the forum here,but one did question why there was no 'attachment' option here.

 

The guys also wondered if there is an option in the works to subscibe to email notice of Daily New Posts for various forum categories,such as BSF has.As far as I know now the only thing you can do is subscibe to individual threads?
