Hi Jim,

Here are a few requests I have:

1. Add a strike through button with associated strike tags. Very useful when you're editing a post and you want to take back what you said, or "remove" code from a post that is not needed.

2. Remove the formatting code in mail that gets sent; at least the part that is used for color coding code. I prefer to use my P2P posts over mail (I subscribed to a number of forums) and then decide whether I can post a reply or not. Currently, with all the formatting in the mail, it's almost impossible to read the text.

3. Fix the spacing issues. I know it's on your list, but yesterday I saw miscommunication between two posters because of the missing spaces.

4. If possible, considering making the subject of a new post identical to the reply. Right now, mail readers (mostly on-line ones like GMail) are not able to group messages. In the old version a new topic and any replies would be grouped under the same main message. You know get two message threads: the original topic and another one with all the replies. Might be an option to make the message content different allowing for filters to work OK.

5. Reconzider zerver side zpel chekking. I kno you're not gonig to impelmend it anwya, but I relly mizz it.... ;-)

6. Is it possible (through my settings or whatever) to have the Editor toolbar on Edits default to Full mode? I don't see the point of the minimized mode when editing.

7. Is it possible to get a copy of your own posts by mail?

That's it for now.

Imar

OK, I'll pick these off one by one:

4. New thread and replies subjects fixed, should be the same now. Message bodies are still different. OK, now as of this morning, this is fixed. Missed one of them last night.

Gonzalo: I can add something to the FAQ but I'm not sure what you mean by "allow the site." Can you clarify that please?

1. I've enabled the strike bb code so you can do strikethrough. I'll add the button to the toolbar in the future.

2: I've added stripping the formatting code from the email bodies to the fix list

3. Right, top of the fix list.

5. Low priority, I'm hoping IE will add client side spell check first. (Come on Santa, bring us IE8 with spell check!)

Hi Jim,
In the same vein as number 2 from Imar's list, is there a way for us to Paste as Plain Text? I typically use a posters original code as reference in my responses and i will normally copy their code directly out of the post. The problem I run into is that if the user has used the highlight tag the formatting code is carried through into the editor so copying something as simple as:

csharp Code:
String.Format("{0} world", "Hello");

becomes something like:
Code:
{font size=2}{color=blue}String{/color}{/font}
and so on.

Further, is there anyway to prevent the editor from detecting that i have copied a formatted code block? I have had an issue where i will copy an entire block of code from a post and when I paste it into the editor it inserts what appears to be something like an IFRAME which makes it a tad difficult to navigate around inside the editor.

Thanks!

-Doug

Doug:
For the copying the code issues, have you tried "reply with quote" rather than copying and pasting code?

For plain text, have you tried the "remove text formatting" in the full editor?
