Oliva - I am not sure what you mean? I am not trying to sound snarky - I really don't know what you are asking.  Are you looking for the return character as you would see in MS Word?

What internet browser are you using? I've found that fire fox recognizes the enter/ return key as a paragraph break, but when I use Google chrome it does not. I don't know any solution other than switching to fire fox.

Liesl - IE and Firefox return key to break paragraphs.  It sounds like she is looking for the return character - which I don't think is an option in IE or Firefox.

I have to put a < p > (minus the spaces to get a new paragraph). But I'm using Safari and it doesn't seem to work any other way. Just my observation.

I have to do the < p > (minus the spaces) too. Any other way, you can just forget it.

Of course, I cannot figure out how to underline, cross out, or bold things.

Grrr Safari.

With IE, mine works just like any typing page.  My only difficulty is single spacing after a return, as it wants to automatically double space.

Gr8Smokies - Underline, bold, and strike through are in my "Post a Reply" box.  There's a subject line, a Text/control bar line, and the typing box.  The options you are looking for are the first several buttons on my Text/control bar.  The link button is towards the end of the control bar, and looks like three chain links.

I just learned this trick last week from another member...to single space after a return, hit shift+enter.  It works on IE...not sure about other browsers.

Thanks, KrisAnn. Now I can post in paragraphs instaed of in big lumps. Hitting the return key, even several times, didn't do it for me.

If you are using sarfari ...from help docs

Macintosh/Safari users, please read this!

If you are using a Macintosh running Safari, you may have some difficulties with several features of the PBS site:

  • Some Safari users report odd display issues

  • Most Safari users are not able to apply changes that require text entry

    • such as forum posts, profile changes and Requestor Conditions

Some versions of Safari have incompatibilities with the PBS site. These are due to changes in the Safari browser code, and are out of PBS' control. The latest Safari updates (for Leopard OS 10.5) are working well; earlier Safari versions (for Tiger, OS 10.4) those Mac users who do not have Leopard or Tiger will need to choose another browser in order to have full use of the PBS site.  No matter what version of Mac OS you have, you should download Apple's free software update (click Software Update under the blue apple on the top left of your screen).

To enter text into your public profile, forum sig, Requestor Conditions, or to Post in the forums if you have a Mac running an earlier version of Safari, you will need to use another browser.  We recommend downloading Firefox, which is a FREE browser available here.  Firefox is the optimal browser for viewing and navigating the PBS site.
