Blurry pre coffee AM. Trying to keep up with the foibles and bug fixes. A lot like examining a chess game and trying to keep track of the various permutations. Then I noticed the new board software is a good analogy of a wildland fire break out and MrD a competent scene commander. Got the wheels in motion, the equipment out in the field and working, and now it's all about little spot shots here and there and every where. Hammer away at the small details while keeping the entire project overall function in mind.
It's working, got well over 50% containment, now just cope with all the little details before he can call it and head back to the barn. :singing:

First one shows attach files in the prime spot for post reply...the second is the useless and pointless bar that covers what i am writing....ive got to constantly (as in several times per post) stop writing and scroll past this to see what im writing.

Ive inadvertently logged out multiple times because of this bar....i mean really, who in the middle of a post would want to log out....im already posting...so why is log out even there?...this whole bar is just clutter i cant see ever being used.

When editing, attach files and preview are at the top, while the save icon needed is all the way at the bottom and needs to be scrolled way down to find....so far i had a hard time even finding the one button needed to edit....save should be right at the top IMO. Screenshot_20200211-100627.png

Okay, now I know what you're talking about. Buttons are going to be staying in their current places. This is one of those "new operating system" things that you'll eventually get used to, hopefully ;)

As for that toolbar, I'll see if anything can be done.

@cold blood Now that's a mess. You sure don't need the AB header or the tool bar. Goddess forbid ever trying to type a technical paper with that maze to work through.

If you're using Firefox or Chrome, you can block that mobile bar with uBlock. DM me, and I'll walk you through it.

Bottom toolbar should be gone now. Can anyone tell me if the reply box jumping around is still happening?

Wow! So much better! Thank you so very much. Hopefully it isn't missed/doesn't break other functionality enough that it has to come back - this is so very much more useable on mobile!

Hey All,

Just figured I'd give a small run down of some of the new things that you'll find in the upgraded software.

Does this bookmark featurei allow me to bookmark all threads instead of using my browser?? I assume yes, but thought I'd ask. I just noticed this today.

Yes it does. It is a built in bookmark feature that you can access whatever threads you bookmark here through your profile.

WOW!!! I'm on this feature! Thanks for the quick reply. What is the limit of bookmarks I can save?? This is a game changer for me.
