"Select all" action (with mouse click&drag or CTRL-A) doesn't work when writing a PM, (only "rightclick->select all" works).
Does work on any other normal forum and worked in previous forum.

I know english probably isn't your first language, but if you've ever heard that saying "you'll catch more flies with honey than with shit" I think you'll understand that when I read your message (many times) the one word that kept bothering me was the adjective 'normal' used in front of forums.

Anyhow, the simple answer to "Does this work on any other forum and the previous version of this forum" (notice the removal of the offending word normal - I think it bothered me becuase it infered that this place isn't normal or that there is something wrong with this place)... I didn't know that it had stopped working. It works fine here, so I am not sure what the problem is.

You might want to give more detail like what browser you are using, and what you were doing when you had the problem. ie: I'm writing this right now in IE6.02 and I can hit CTRL-A and the whole thing highlights perfectly. And there is only one the one editor for any post type, be it a post here, or a private message. So any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated, as if it's an actual bug, I'd like to fix it.

Sad
Doomjedi is so nice, an angel really, cutter than the cat in Shrek 2 or that small creature in Madagaskar, never meaning to offend, and yet time after time he get's into such situations.... Sad

All I meant to say, that blaming my browser for the bug won't help, as using the same browser I don't get this problem on any of other many forums I'm a member of. Never meant to offend you or your forum.
Anyway sorry if I've offended you.

Actually checked CTRL-A today and it worked. But mouse text selection doesn't work. Sometimes it selects only 1 or 2 letters (most cases), sometimes 1 or 2 lines...but never all the text. And I use text copy as backup while sending any of my PMs so it's a bit annoying.

Browser: Maxthon
Mouse: Optical "Maxxtro"

P.S. Don't worry, my english not much worse than yours...And definetely better than your russian Smile

That is really strange that one day it works and the next day that it doesn't.

I say this, because all of the problems that I have been fixing have been in other programs... meaning I haven't touched the "posting" or "privmsg" programs. I don't know what to say there. And now you say that your mouse is only copying the first few lines whereas it selected all of them the day or so before.

This really has me baffled. As I can select everything just fine with IE 6.02 - by using either the control-A command or with the mouse. In fact, I can even use the mouse scroll wheel to continue the select when I write something larger than the input window... Hmmmm...

I wasn't trying to say it's your browser in my post... I was trying to say that I can't duplicate the problem here on this end. I know that Adam and a few others are using Firefox... Let's ask them to check and see if they are having the problem with highlighting / selecting text from the input window when making a PM or Post..

@Anyone... If you are not using IE as your browser, can you test as given in the previous paragraph and let us know if you are able to select all the text fine?? We'd really appreciate that, and report your findings here please...

Thanks...

PS: Doomjedi... I know my Russian would definitely be bad or limited... But my english isn't that bad as it is my native language. My biggest problem is "Dislexia". lol...

I don't seem to have any problem using Ctrl-A or hightlighting via mouse with PMs or this post using Firefox.

Works fine with Firefox 2.0, and Internet Explorer 6.02. The only thing I can't do is left-click->highlight an entire paragraph, much less two letters with IE. Everything else works perfectly.
