Rich formatting tool bar
Posted by Stage_Left on Wednesday, March 19, 2014 3:24 PM
I've been trying to reply to a post, and I selected rich formatting as I always do, but the tool bar doesn't appear. Am I missing something? Thanks! Dave

It's showing up for me now, as I respond to your post.  I'm using Firefox, v27.0.1.  What browser and browser version are you using?  When did it last work for you?  If you're using Internet Explorer, do you have Compatibility View on or off?

(Can you tell that I work in IT?)

Hi Baron- yup, allowing Compatibility View for this site did it, thank you very much!

I am using IE, and I had Windows 8 but I downloaded 8.1 two days ago. The tool bar, my ability to post pics as I always had done, etc. had been the same before downloading 8.1 but then.....surprise....some things changed. I appreciate your reply, it worked!

I'm glad you work in IT Yes  I don't, but actually my wife does (Peoplesoft security admin). I try not to bother her with this stuff because I don't always know what's desktop and what's not and she doesn't like to come home to provide desktop support lol.

Thanks again!

Dave

Glad to help, Dave!  Yeah, one of my company's main applications runs only on Internet Explorer (yep, I can't believe it, either!), and as new versions of the browser comes out, they outpace our level of coding.  So, pages don't draw the way they did previously, some things don't appear, and so on.  Switching to Compatibility View is usually the first thing we try.

I started using Firefox for my browsing back when IE10 came out, because I found that with IE10, every one of the secure sites that I'd visit, like this one, but also eBay, Facebook, etc,--any site that required a login--I was getting prompted every couple of minutes to log in again.  At that point, I pretty much stopped using Internet Explorer.

Anyway, glad you're operational again!  Now, get to the bench!  Wink
