Font Color

17 posts in this topic

Hi Sweet,

 

Let me see if I can get this to print in a color.

 

Yes! It worked. What I did is this: I typed what I wanted in a different color first. Then after I typed it, I selected it. Then I clicked on the color palette, chose red, and clicked off. It put what I typed first in red and then I continued typing in black below it.

 

I hope that makes sense.

 

Warm wishes,

Heidi

Sweet, the colors will appear as bracketed numbers when you are composing the message. But when it is posted, they will be in real colors. Honest!

 

See, I am going to type this in red.

 

In brackets, it says color=#FF000 before "in red" and after it, is says /color. That is what is called BBcode.

 

If you look under the Clickable Smilies in the compose screen, you'll see the instructions for Formatting Text, and it links to further information.

 

Please try it again, I think you'll love it once you get the hang of formatting.


Warm Hugs,

Hi,

 

I wanted to add something here about the formatting that I recently discovered. If I want to both bold and underline (or any other two or three formatting things), it does not work to do it at once. In other words, if I select the sentence that I want to bold and underline, then I click on bold, and then I click on underline....the underlining actually goes to a different part of the sentence then I wanted. So, you have to select the text that you want to format. Then, click on the formatting choice you want (e.g., bold). The go back and select it again, and then click on the other formatting choice you want (e.g., underline).

 

I hope that explanation makes sense and is helpful to everyone!

 

Warm wishes,

Heidi

Hey, I just discovered something, too. If you go into My Controls and then to the board options section down at the lower left hand column, you can change your editing from standard to Rich Text.

 

With this turned on, you've got WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get). In other words, you can see the colours and other formatting in your message before it is posted. It works with most of the later browsers.

 

yay!


Warm wishes,

Jefa

I wish I could say the same! I thought "yippee" when I saw Jefa's posting about the Rich Text, so went and changed it in My Controls.

 

Unfortunately when I went to try it out in a reply I found that all the toolbar had been wiped in the reply window! Very strange! :( So I changed the setting back again to Standard Editor, and the toolbar reappeared. I'm probably going to change my browser to Firefox soon, so I'll see if that fixes it.

Hi,

 

I am going to try it out! It is working for me!

 

Sorry it wasn't such a success for you, Sherrill.

 

Warm wishes,

Yes, Sherrill, the rich text editor setting will work only with IE6+, Mozilla or Firefox. So switching to Firefox would work dandy.

 

Also, Heidi found that the forum worked better with Firefox than IE for her.

 

I was going to just change everyone's default to rich text editing, but since that won't work for other browsers, I'll keep my hands off it and let people change their own preferences.

Hi Shelley,

 

Well, I use Netscape, (which incidentally I am quite attached to :rolleyes: ) And I understand that Netscape uses all Mozilla coding. My husband uses Mozilla, and says it is very similar except Netscape has more "bells and whistles"! :lol:

 

But I can see I am going to have to make the switch, and Firefox seems to have a lot going for it. (Won't be today!)

Jefa, HOORAY!!! Thanks for discovering this!

Glad to see this will accept several options at once, without having to go back and highlight again.

 

This solves a frustration I've had from the beginning with the toolbar functions. Hey, this is fun! This is lilke having a new box of Crayolas! Can't decide what is my favorite color . . . . . :D

I am checking to see if this works for me.

Red is the first color.

Then I will switch to Blue.

Now I will try bold and green.

This should take me back to black and still bold.

Now I will take the bold off.


Strength and Warmth,

Sheryl
