Text formatting BC posts doesn't work with iPad
Hey guys, when replying to a post here on BC, the text formatting - creating a new paragraph by pressing the return key - doesn't do anything if you're on an iPad. When you press 'submit new thread' button or whatever, it looks like everything is kosher but you end up with no paragraphs. A way around this is to go back and edit your threads or posts once posted, and then it seems to work. Not sure if this is fixable but thought you should know!

Maklike, it is fixable
For iPhone/iPad/iTouch users try this:
Settings -> General Settings -> Miscellaneous Options -> Message Editor Interface -> Standard Editor - Extra formatting controls
Thanks to kwun for explaining it to me

Anyone resolved this issue? I don't see this setting that LD refers to in my iPad, iPhone, or iPod! .......I'm aure there are many more users who are having a problem with this text formatting.

There is no 'miscellaneous' section in the General section of the Settings menu on my iPad. The 'return' function just doesn't work. I typed each of these sentences as a separate paragraph an this forum doesn't recognize when I hit the return key. The only solution is to go back and edit after you've posted, which for some bizarre reason seems to work.

Lemme see if it works for me.

Cool it worked! Thanx Mike!
This will have to be my workaround for now. Still don't see no reason why it doesn't work in the first window. :sigh:
