    Re: Double Posts

    Inorder not to hijack the Lex thread (inScuttlebutt) again I will start a new one. Which actually belongs in the Lounge board anyway. If you <img src=/S/eileen.gif border=0 alt=eileen width=17 height=15> or <img src=/S/claude.gif border=0 alt=claude width=21 height=21> would move the Post it button to the right--away from the Preview button, it would help cut down on some errors and double posts.

    And BTW I sure am glad that there aren't any cookies that keep track of how many times I start to make a post and change my mind. I would have gone NOVA as a nonposter by now.

    Re: Double Posts

    Maybe making the 'Post it' a different color than the other two MAY help <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>
    Or put the spell checker in between the other two.

    Re: Double Posts

    Actually, I'd vote for having Compose and Reply pop new windows, as my most common operator error is having mostly drafted my post, then decidinging to check something, such as grabbing a post number or URL, and accidently blowing out of my response and losing it all. Particularly frustrating with complex posts with lotsa URL references.

    Probably too much to ask of our intrepid Administrators. <img src=/S/grovel.gif border=0 alt=grovel width=31 height=23>

    Re: Double Posts

    Until then, right-click, Open in New Window is the workaround.

    Re: Double Posts

    Yep. <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>

    Problem is now I've started shift-clicking things I didn't mean to. <img src=/S/sigh.gif border=0 alt=sigh width=15 height=15> Eventually I'll get into the "contextual" habit of shift-clicking only when I want a separate Window. <img src=/S/sigh.gif border=0 alt=sigh width=15 height=15>

    Re: Double Entendre

    My favorite thing about this post is how the spelling loosing actually is a perfectly appropriate substitute for what I would have expecting to see, which was losing.

    Re: Double Posts

    Re spell check, you might be interested in MerC's right-click web content/context spell-check system which he mentions in <!post=this post,107518>this post<!/post> & explains in more detail later in the thread. It's quite nifty, you just have to remember to paste the corrected text back in over your spell-check selection. (Guess why I point that out? <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>)
