Sentences breaking up
« on: July 10, 2005, 18:17:41 »


Sorry to bother you MIKE with this trivia. When in typing ,spell check and preview modes my post looks fine.
however when I post two or three words at the end of my last paragraph will drop down a space and then another space and continue. What am I doing wrong  ?.

Thank a Million.

I don't think it's anything you're doing in particular... do you have an example post I can check out?

Seen. I had a look at the post and I can see what you mean but there's no obvious cause. What Operating System and web browser are you using? Are you cutting and pasting your replies from another source such as Word?

OS is XP Professional, MSN for Browser and no pasting or cutting, I just type to almost the end of page and if it looks like I'm not going to get my next full word on that line, I space and continue.

When you say you "space and continue" when you near the end of the line, does that mean you just hit the space bar, or the enter key? There's no need to do anything special near the end of a line, your browser will automatically wrap the text around to the next line as you type.

Mike, this is the same problem I had earlier this year. The cause for my problem was I had the text on larger or largest and it distorted all my sentences. I had to put the text size back on medium and it worked fine. Don't know if it is that simple for FastEddy but it may be worth a try.

I hit the Enter Key. With regard to 'Island Ryhno's' thought, no I haven't changed the text  size.

Gentlemen, forgive me, its my fault. As Mike pointed out the Wrap around works just fine, it doesn't need me to help or second guess it. I was hitting the Enter Key before the Wrap around could do its job. As this paragraph has turned out just fine. Again sorry to have taken up your time and thanks for the quick responses.

No worries, glad we've figured things out.


Cheers
