I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before, but myself and several other members have noticed that the post editing window has drastically shortened with the new software. We now have less than 24 hours to edit a post, which seems much shorter than previously. Is there any way to lengthen the editing window, or was this a decision taken by the admin and is not subject to change? Thanks for any feedback on this issue.
Hi Jeff, due to some challenges we have had with people abusing their edit privileges We have generally speaking restricted editing to 24 hours. We do make exceptions on a case-by-case basis for members with a good track record and long standing here, so if you do need longer than 24 hours please PM me and we can discuss

OK, understood Dave. Thanks for the prompt reply.

When composing a message the BBCode Editor renders the font at approximately 12pt. But when the Preview button is clicked it renders the font at approximately 10pt. The last version of the discussion board had this same anomaly and was fixed once reported. I'm just surprised I hadn't consciously noticed it until this evening. I think it's because I was trying to get an idea of how the italics were going to look in particular!

What browser are you using? The font sizes are identical for me (16pt)

Firefox 92.0.1 and Chrome 94.0.4606.71. This is how it looks during Compose and Preview:

Firefox

Compose

Preview
ff-htf-preview.png


Chrome

Compose
ch-htf-edit.png


Preview
ch-htf-preview.png


Who knows? It wouldn't surprise me if it was client-side and not server-side!

It's the same where it shrinks when the Preview button is clicked. You would think something touted as a Preview mode would render the font the same size as it will look once posted by default.

It's not a big deal so definitely do not spend any more time on it. I just thought since it was easily fixed in the last version this would be just as expedient. Appreciate everything you do, Dave! :emoji_thumbsup:
