For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

Suggestion: Bring back automated bold and italic function in reviews

Post by janinewesterweel » 15 Apr 2019, 10:38

Hi Scott
I am loving the newly automated review feature - it makes life so easy! One thing though - please can I suggest that you bring back our automated bold and italic coding? I found it much easier in the previous setup to just click on the "B" or the "I" as I can in this post and have the coding placed for me.

I'm not sure if others on the forum feel the same, but I'm battling a bit with all the "copy and pasting" and having to double-check spacing and placement. :?

Regards
Janine

I am tagging @Scott for you. Otherwise he won't see this. I believe making this change is on his list.
