Where'd the "unanswered threads" section go? did it just get merged with new posts?
Instead of using the "lightning bolt", have you tried using the "New posts"? I don't believe that they're quite the same.

Also, when you use "New posts" you should see the following:

As for the editor issue, this is the first that I'm hearing of it, but I will try to look into it further.
1. Font is the same size@MrDeranged
1. I could be wrong, BUT I think the new forum displays the font at a smaller size in any of the forums. Is there a way to fix this?
2. The highlighted issue I mentioned before has cropped up in a new, and another important place. When I type in @ and a few letters etc, the context menu with all the possible names appears. I'm telling you now, The color used to highlight a name is virtually invisible. Can this please be fixed?
As you MAY recall, I like to see the new threads- you created 3 bookmarks for me when I was beta testing the last version for you (I USE THEM everyday!)
With the new engine is there a way to see the new threads with a click or two? I like my bookmarks plenty, but if there's an advanced way of seeing the newest threads, I'd be interested.
I appreciate you looking into this!
@MrDeranged pointed me to a similar but different option in the "new posts" button - perhaps try that out, it's much closer to the old behavior in that it actually only shows threads with replies you haven't yet seen or true new threads.@MrDeranged Would it be possible to increase how much unread threads stand out (in comparison to threads you've already read)? The old version had a badge that made unread threads stand out much better.
I find that the bold title doesn't stand out enough.

Is that for new posts on all boards or for a specific board? I usually prefer to read one board at a time and am less interested in the non-spider boards.

Different browsers and different keyboards do not seem to make any difference. Same jumping is seen with Firefox, Chrome, and duckduckgo browsers, as well as with all 3 of my regularly used soft keyboards. I think it's an artifact of the tiny amount of screen real estate left for the editor window after cramming in the header menu, footer menu, formatting menu, keyboard, and emoji bar. When I utilize the "request desktop page" option, this behavior does stop, but the font size is prohibitively small. If there were a way to (optionally) disable the header or footer menus or both, I don't think it would be an issue.Please let me know if you figure anything out. It's a learning curve for us as well. We can only test so much before we have to let you guys use it and then really find out all the things that we didn't notice were issues
It's all boards. There is currently no way for a user to filter out specific forums from the new posts page. To stop posts from specific forums appearing I would have to turn them off for everyone. An all or nothing solution is not one that I'm currently contemplating. Sorry for any inconvenience.Is that for new posts on all boards or for a specific board?

The bold text has been working fine for me but... I'm thinking of an old trick commonly used in Linux ANSI where special text, notifications etc, were given the color that was on the opposite side of the color wheel for extra contrast. The code would run a background color check then a sub routine would simply flag the text to be enhanced with ---------------- Forgot the word. Been 25 years.I'm looking into making threads with new posts a little more noticeable.
