    Posting Tip

    When you post a message, type what you have to say in Microsoft Word first. Word will correct your spelling and grammar for you.

    After you are finished typing what you have to say and have corrected all your mistakes, press Ctrl-A to highlight everything, then type Ctrl-C to copy it.

    At the message box where you type your messages on The Fixx Message Board, type Ctrl-V to paste your message.

    I hope this helps.

    If I had followed my own advice, I wouldn’t have “Last edited by dejapete on...” at the bottom of a lot of my posts just because I had to fixx a spelling error.

    Thanks, Pete!
    That's a great tip!
    It would help greatly with pre-editing down post size..for those of us who are "lengthy strings of descriptives" addicts (like me). LOL!

    Thanks, Kim.

    Of course, the full size Word screen can entice one to write even more.

    But never mind me. I'm full of advice. No matter how dumb.




    (fwiw):

    Did you know that things in the back of the refrigerator keep longer?

    ...and...

    Cook chicken close to garbage day, so that the bones don't stink up the garbage all week.

    You mean like the time I..........................oh, I can't say it out loud.

    And there wasn't a keyboard around to Ctrl-Z, anyway...

    But thanks for the tip!
