However, simply left-clicking on "reply" in a thread does indeed only provide a handful of editor options. Frankly, it's really silly that one has to right-click and open a new tab just to get the editor to work properly. Fixing it to work in all cases would be the right thing to do.
    Yes Jamey, this is correct.

    Hey Jamey,

    I first reported the issue back in July of 2016:

    http://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread.php/159074-Posting-Options-No-Longer-Available

    I've been using the Right-Click => New Tab method for so long that it has become second nature.

    However, I agree that a workaround should NOT be necessary.

    Thanks creech thanked this post

    Hey Jeff,

    Using Chrome, the layout on my screen is very different from yours (see below):

    That's odd, in my above post I was using FireFox, but tried Chrome earlier and it was identical to my FireFox screenshot.

    Edited to add, as I'm editing this I get yet a different appearance.

    The screenshot you provided @stella_blue is what I see when private messaging. Name:  Untitled.jpg

    The above post is a screenshot of the editor when editing. Just to avoid confusion.


    Edit: Just tried Chrome again and it's the same as in FireFox.

    Jesus H. Christ, so they've just let the editor remain broken this way for nearly a year?! There's simply no excuse for that. None. A properly working editor is, without question, the most vital element of functionality to any online forum community. How can they possibly justify allowing something that important to remain broken for this long? (Answer: they can't). Someone's website priorities are way out-of-whack for this to happen, methinks.

    And if I hear one peep out of TG staffers attempting to blame this absolutely ridiculous state of affairs on an inadequate sandbox development environment... Well, let's just say it wouldn't be advisable.

    I'd add an angry emoticon, but I didn't right-click before composing this response, and so I obviously can't because the editor is ****ing broken!

    To clarify for Scott, Jef**s photos are what he sees when he does not right-click before editing. He gets the full editor just like we do when he right-clicks.

    It worked okay for me prior to maybe 3 days ago, but yes, there were problems on and off during the course of the year, but eventually worked themselves out I guess.

    What the ... why did the f and apostrophe get censored out of a common name like "Jeff"? How stupid is this kindergarten-level language filter?
