    I'm sure this question has been asked but I couldn't find a answer.
    When one clicks on new thread or post the writing box appears and you have [font], [size] and [color] above. How do you change these items to customize your thread or post ?
    Sorry,I'm a better wrench spinner than computer operator. ;)

    Easy to do, but hard for me to explain.

    See the blue downward arrow on each of the font, size and color?
    Click that, once you do it will open up your choices.

    so now let's say you made your choice on what font to use.. let's say you choose arial. click on arial.... then this box will open and you type in the words that you want to use for that font. same thing with size and color.

    This is one way to do it.

    The other way would be to just manually type out the stuff in brackets.

    Say you wanted to use the color green. you would type:
    type your words then [Color].... but you must use the backslash on the second time you put color in brackets. so it would bracket, blackslash Color then another bracket.
    I can't acutally type it out, or it will obey the command and the words will be green.. Confusing I know for me to explain.

    Ok, Jodi after playing another half hour it looks like I finally got the hang of it.

    Thanks Rob.
