Hi Ron,

I don't know what other forums this might be happening in, but in Poetic Haven, this thread: http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum55/HTML/000028.html , I pasted in my "poem" and ... well... all spacing was lost. I seem to recall a similar issue way back on another update. If that could be fixed, that'd be awesome... I know some people don't think presentation is that important, but I wholly disagree!

Thanks,

C

Addition to this.

When I posted it, I pasted in the poem. I clicked preview (which didn't work, due to the semi-colon issue). I then clicked on signature, add to library, and disable smileys. Then submitted.

When I looked at it, it had no spaces, everything except the title was left justified.

However, I just went back and edited it to finish out the unfinished signature. (The truncation due to length, I think), and Voilla! It's back. Uhmm... something's wierd here.

Athena reads these threads, too, Chris. She knew she messed up, and when you squealed on her, I guess she figured she'd better fix it for you.

(p.s. Disabling smilies will disable spacing; they both happen in the same code block.)

I've had this same problem in Open #12.

I've posted a couple of poems where the line breaks and spacing just wouldn't show. But when I went back to edit, there they were. . .

And now, I've tried to put in a formatted poem, but for some reason, the whole thing wound up left aligned. . .

Any suggestions??? Thanks in advance!!!
