    You can paste this code into the Word Ref reply box to display this smiley:

    [IMG]https://forum.wordreference.com/attachments/smile01c-jpg.29598/[/IMG]

    If I could be bothered, yes. I may resort to using a huge smiley or even a huge smiley gif in all my posts until somebody takes notice or decides to do away with them altogether, which is a clean solution.

    So annoying.
    When I bold something in the first line, let's say, it bolds all the other lines afterwards :mad::(
    I'm using Firefox.
    I'm using Firefox, too. It seems to be a FF glitch, then. Anyway, I'm quite comfortable with FF and not planning to switch over to Chrome. It will surely be corrected in time, perhaps with the next update.

    Is it only me, or is anyone else having trouble using the "colour text" symbol? I'm having to use BBcodes - which is time-consuming.:(
    (The problem happens on my Android tablet, with Chrome. So it's not Firefox-related.)

    I'm not having any trouble with colour, Mrs :) [touches wood]

    Meanwhile here's my latest masterpiece:
    :thumbsup: Also: lashings of dosh is poking fun at Johnson's typical speech.
    You have to have lived your whole life in the UK to recognize these things, but lashings is commonly associated with things like kiddies' novelist Enid Blyton's (1897-1968) 'Famous Five' series (1942-63) in which five posh jolly-hockeysticks kiddies have adventures then as a reward sit down to 'lashings of hard-boiled eggs' etc.
    Dosh* is more difficult to place ~ it's less 'marked'. But the combination lashings of dosh is the kind of thing Johnson would typically say in his very-much-overgrown-Eton-schoolboy way.
    Further down the bus it says Tally ho! which is only ever uttered (seriously) by extremely posh folk intent on killing foxes for 'sport'.

    *According to my slang dictionary: "the term appeared in the US c. 1850, then vanished, to re-emerge in the UK in the 1950s". Curious history.

    (the usual formatting hell at work here)

    As has been said, "BB code" overcomes this but is tedious.

    I have occasional problems with the formatting ribbon not working at all, and the "post reply" button being dead.

    Win 10 x 64 (lastest update) Firefox 69.0 (64bit)

    Notifications for this thread were not reaching me for some reason.

    Xenforo promised a fix in the next release, but that is taking a while. I've found a fix for the Firefox and smiley problems and applied it. Let me know if this causes any other problems!

    I can write in colour again - hurrah!

    Ah, it's come back on my tablet! Thank you, Mike:).

    PS to Bevj: I could always see the symbol - it was just that when I hit it, nothing happened....

    I don't wish to receive push notifications, so when the question "Do you wish to receive push notifications?" appeared, I selected the answer "Never ask me this question again", but the question keeps returning. It's not a big deal, but I think the software should be responding to my reply, not ignoring it.

    If you hold down the "Alt" key and, on the number pad (not the numbers on the top row) type 0169, you get the © symbol.

    If you have Windows, do a search in File Explorer for "charmap.exe" and create a shortcut on your desktop. This will provide access to more symbols and letters than you can wave a stick at - many of them can be reproduced by an "Alt +nnnn" combination, and those that can't can be copied and pasted.

    Too bad we can't just click on this in the Omega forum, or the symbol for "Registered Trademark".

    By the way, on my (oldish) computer the keypad doesn't work for 1, 4, 6, and 9.

    Option 2 on my Mac gives me a euro sign: (bit late for that! :D).

    You need shift-option 2 for the trademark symbol ™.

    It's been this way for a while and still in iOS 13.4 that the teardrop does not bring up the colour palette. I rarely use colour, but when I do .... I use a text shortcut (color with an x attached) to bring up this
    COLOR=rgb(209, 72, 65)]Text[/COLOR but enclosed in [ ]
    then copy/paste and colour-tune:)

    it would be useful, to me at least, to have the "< Previous | Next > " buttons on the top of the thread too (just like the old version had).
    You reminded me that there used to be shortcuts for these. I just restored them. See the accesskey chart to see how to use them in your browser. For example, in Chrome on Windows, hit Alt+Shift+n right now to go to the "Next" thread. "N" is for Next and "p" is for Previous. Hope this helps!

    True, that still isn’t working for me, I don’t know how to use shortcuts anyway on mobile :D (can you?)
