    Where did my carrige return (new line) go?

    Until about 3 dats ago, every time I hit the ENTER key I got advanced to a new line. Now the cursor just sits there, taunting me. No new line = no paragraphing. As I hate "wall of text" posts I refuse to commit even small ones. For the record I'm running Windows 7 in IE, and to actually know that much is a major miracle for this tech-ignorant Luddite. Also,, hitting ENTER everywhere else except OCDO advances me to a new line just like it's supposed to. Anybody got a clue? TIA. stay safe.

    Obama care removed the need for a carriage return.

    We all speak of liberty and freedom like we are the only ones that know the truth and the right path. But if we expect everyone to accept and follow our path and to accept our truth and want to force it upon them then that is no longer liberty or freedom. It is slavery. I believe in liberty for all. Regardless of their political views, religion, race, sex, etc.

    Before you reformat,

    try another keyboard.

    You know how you love to "pound home" a point.

    Try firefox or chrome, you must have updated IE.

    I have the same problem in windows 8 with IE.

    By chance, did you change the settings in General Settings - Miscellaneous Options?

    Message Editor Interface:

    Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing
    Basic Editor - A simple text box
    Standard Editor - Extra formatting controls

    When posting messages to the forums or other members, there are three interface types available to you. The simplest of these is a simple text box, while the last is a fully-fledged WYSIWYG editor, which allows you to format your text as you want it and see the results immediately.

    Depending upon the capabilities of your web browser, you may not be able to use all of these options. If you experience problems when posting messages, try switching to a different interface type.


    I think I tried the Enhanced Interface once and it did the same thing. Using Standard Editor solved things.
