RE: werewolf_sympathiser and the spacing of doom
Also, I have something that might help you, as well. If you use either Internet Explorer (IE) or Firefox (FF) for your browser, you have a neato option that can revolutionize how you use the archives. My friend, let me introduce you to Tiny MCE!
Step 1: Go to "Account Info"
Step 2: Click on "Edit Preferences"
Step 3: Tick the box that says "Use tinyMCE WYSWYG editor"
Step 4: Click "Submit"
What this will do is give you a rich text editing box in EVERY FIELD that requires you to type. For instance, you will gain this feature on reviews, allowing you to bold, italicize, add line spacing, underline, etc. merely by highlighting and clicking. The box looks like this:
The biggest benefit of this, though, is that you can simply copy and paste from Word, and most, if not all, of the formatting that you have in your word document will go along with it (and yes, the amount of text you can see while editing an actual chapter/story is more than the two lines for the review function as pictured above). Sometimes, the italics or centering won't show up, but that takes far less time to edit in than putting line breaks and bracketed HTML commands. By far. Just... trust me on this.
HTML sucks. It really sucks. It takes forever and can send things haywire if you forget so much as a bracket. This is an ultra-super-ninja way to escape the hassle around it. The cool thing about tinyMCE is that you can simply un-check the "Use tinyMCE" box anytime you choose to use HTML instead. Why you would do that, I dunno, but it gives you far more control over what you're doing, and it requires much less time and effort.
Unfortunately, if you have Google Chrome or Safari, this feature won't work properly, but in terms of performance with MNFF features. Firefox is by far, in my experience with IE, FF, GC, and Sf, the best and least aggravating.
Hope this makes someone's day. It sure did when Teh Magnificent BB told me about this.
