Still working on Spell check


nice stuff this BB software is nice.. the quote color is kinda dark.. usually easier to read if i select it and it inverts..

i pulled out the 'spell check' to point out.. anybody with Mac OSX... right click where you type and pick 'check spelling as you type' and it will check any place you can type at all including online forms.. you get the little red dots underlining misspelled words and you can right-click to pick a correction.. ala MS word. A lot of people are not aware of this. 1/2 the time i'm posting from my craptop (non mac laptop) so i don't have that feature and it's well crappy.

i saw the tables.. i also waaaay prefer the way that the buttons just insert the bb code instantly.. it would be better if it put the cursor BETWEEN the codes so you could just start typing.. but it's nonetheless it is: incredible!
I also like that i can TYPE smilies again! ;D (of course i just learned that i have to use the short version for ;-D )

Hello Randy,

I just went to post a reply and received a notice that another reply had been posted while I was composing mine.  I had the choice to view the other reply and change my post, or simply post.

That's pretty cool...

I ran into the same thing earlier Silverfox...I didn't know what was going on. Once I figured it out, it is a pretty cool feature.

Yeah, that feature has come in handy a couple of times already.  I hate posting only to see that someone posted just before me with the same thing.
