request for help
« on: November 15, 2011, 02:55:47 PM »
to all and sunder.
massive problem, always getting hammered for the way my stuff is laid out after posting to mwc, rightly so.
I'm always told about chopped lines and sentences, this is caused by me trying to keep it neat and tidy.   help

Mr. Bill, I have a few questions first.

Are you using 'Microsoft Word' to write your stories or just a computer notepad?

In the middle of the screen of your desk-top, when you ‘Right-click’ (click the right-side button on your mouse)

A small sub-screen should appear.

Go down that list and look for the word, ‘NEW’

Left-Click on ‘NEW’ and a second sub-screen will appear.

Go down that list and see if there is a large ‘W’ on that list.

If so that will open a Microsoft document on your computer.

Hi Bill,
If you are using Windows, you could paste your work into Notepad first and make it look good there, since Notepad doesn't keep any of the special formatting either.

Hello Bill,

to all and sunder.
massive problem, always getting hammered for the way my stuff is laid out after posting to mwc, rightly so.
I'm always told about chopped lines and sentences, this is caused by me trying to keep it neat and tidy.   help

You could write complete, grammatically correct sentences, properly punctuated, and use the formatting tools available on the "post reply" page. I don't think your problem concerns your word processor.

For instance, the above quoted text would be more presentable as:
Quote
To all and sundry.
I have a massive problem. I'm always getting hammered for the way my stuff is laid out when posting to MWC.
I'm always told about chopped lines and sentences caused by my efforts to keep everything neat and tidy.
Please help!

This could be written directly into the reply box, Notepad, WordPad, or any word processor you may use.

I think it must be something to do with your browser setting/MWC, although I don't know exactly what.

I know what you mean; some of your
sentences seem to cut themselves in half like that.

I've also noticed it happening to some of Joe's recent posts.  ???
