Yes it is.

Aren't those drabbles in the CBB archives?

I hit add new chapter and went to copy and paste in some new text and it wouldn't let me. Anyone know how fix this or to let me add a chapter please? Also how do you add multiple characters?

Sorry if they are stupid questions obviously I'm hopeless with technology.

For some reason I can't use the 'paste' when I right-click on the mouse, but I can paste with Control V. I've no idea why, or even if it's just me being stupid, but you could try that, Blue. I think you add multiple characters by using the control key as well.

I found I could control-V to get stuff into the text box, but that it kept telling me there was nothing there! And I couldn't go back to correct or add to what I'd put in the boxes for chapter notes etc as the cursor kept disappearing.


It's going to take me ages to get anything posted at this rate - and I haven't managed to write this month's chapter [because I spent so long yesterday trying to post Ch 1] which I was hoping to add both to SDL and to St T here, once I'd got the previous 6 chapters posted - :evil:

This may just be my computer being weird, but I thought I'd mention it in case it helped anyone else. If I just cut and paste from Word, it goes in OK but for some reason all the line spacings are doubled. If I type a couple of letters first, then delete them, then cut and paste from Word, everything's fine. No idea why, but it works!

Mine does that with the double spacing too - I'll try typing into the box first and see if that helps! But just copying and pasting seems to work fine for me.

If I turn off mini MCE it seems to go in OK, I've now discovered, so I've got The Calendar posted up to May.

But I can't seem to find any way of putting in/keeping italics or bold, and I can't indent the quoted/memory passages either, so don't want to post Advent Calendar to SDL until I've sorted that out...thanks for the tip, Alison, I'll try typing a few letters in & then pasting straight from Word and see if it helps - once I've actually written June's chapter ...

I am having problems with the SDL scrolling wildly through the Drabbles. I am a fast reader but not that fast it just goes wild and rushes past , it is also swinging madly from side to side if I increase the text side. No other sites appear to be doing it, all advice welcome .

Might be a problem with the way your browser views pages - which do you use? Does it happen every time you go on?

I use Chrome, the scrolling seems to be intermittent but the swinging about happens most of the time, think that may be because i have to increase the text size though. Maybe if I try doing the text another way rather than use the built in one?

No it seems to have been since I have been trying to read the longer Drabbles. At the moment I am trying to read Pim's Abby one and it's driving me potty.

I use Chrome too, and haven't had any problems. Hope you manage to sort it soon. :?

How does the Review feature work? I've done a couple of reviews which come up as Anonymous, whereas I've noticed other peoples say Signed . So how do they get to be Signed?

I think you have to be signed in - have you registered as a member?

Having come to this late, haveing been on holiday, and only now finding my feet, is anyone else having the problem that both the board and SDL won't stay open at the sme time? As I open one the other one disappears - so I have to go back and find one or t'other, which is a bit aggrannoying. :D Especially as I still need to read the infoon the board to find out how to do things as I am doing them in SDL. :roll:

(Hilda would slay me for that last sentence!)

I've the CBB and Sally Denny open at the same time on different tabs for a while this afternoon with no problems (using Internet Explorer). Which browser are you using, Mary?
