Yep, that's the way to do it on my APPLE

Oh, and a double ctr+return before you add a photo from your album

Not making excuses for the quirky forum but Apple's Return/Enter eccentricity has certainly caused trouble elsewhere - Facebook being one example.


That's strange Dave, I've used iPad 3, iPad Pro and iPhone 5 on FB with no issues at all. Do you update apps regularly?

Some of the forums I visit clearly use the same basic software package and work very well. When IT related things haven't worked properly in some of my past jobs it's often been down to lack of investment, poor staff or both.

I understand the basic forum software and the editor are supplied from different sources.

Resource-wise we have ten forums/websites based on this setup so changing is both more expensive and not as straightforward as if it was just one site/forum.

I appreciate that Neil, I'm sure if it was an easy upgrade or fix it would have been done by now.

I have an IPad with latest software update and annoyingly I have the problem with the cursor, have had the problem all the years that I have accessed this site, always with an IPad. Resigned to the fact that it is just an anomaly with the Apple software.

Hello good evening

This return and carriage feed - or lack there of - is not peculiar to Apple, as my HP laptop running W10 suffers it. My desktop PC running W7 doesn't. I've given up.

So if I reach the end of a paragraph with my laptop, then press return. the cursor goes in front of the first character on the page. I then use the cursor down key to put the cursor after the carriage return and double line feed that have been added after my completed paragraph. I can also use the mouse and L click to move the cursor after the finished para'

I've taken to adding two line feeds and some buckshee characters when I want to add a photo. Then I position the cursor at the first line feed before pressing the camera icon to add a picture. This avoids the annoying placement of the first word of the new paragraph on the same line as the photo itself. The extraneous characters just act as a marker to start subsequent text.

Doesn't have to be a why. I just fixed a work round.

Rgds to all
