    Today we switched everyone to the new version of the text editor (Version 3).  We think that all the major bugs have been resolved, and the new version offers a better overall experience.  However, if you prefer the old version you can still switch back to version 2 on the profile configuration page.

      I prefer to use the older version of the edit capsule, but I can't find the box in the profile configuration page where I will click the version 2.

      My problem with the new version is, everytime I click save the bold letters turn back to normal letters and the spaces between the paragraph is always too wide, unlike with the older version it fixes itself on its own.

        Hi Forever,

        To change to the old editor, do the following:

        1)  Click the "my profile" tab

        2)  Click "Edit Profile" link in the "Author Tools" at the top.   

        3)  Then, change the list box marked "Text Editor" to "Version 2(Old)".

        4)   Hit the "Save Changes" button

        I'm sorry that you've had a bad experience with the new editor.  I've tested it in Firefox and IE7 and the bold letters and paragraph spacing are always correct for me.

        Which browser are you using?  I will be very glad to check on the issues that you are experiencing and see if we can't get them fixed.

          Larry thanks for the help, but I can't find the box markef "Text Editor" anymore. When the new version came up the first time, I saw that boxes where I can choose the version to use, but now I can't see that anymore. Below is my edit profile page:

            Hi Forever,

            I checked it out and it looks like a problem with your account.  I'll have it fixed for you on Monday.

                Hi Forever,

                I've fixed your account.  Your editor is now set to Version 2 and you have a choice between Version 2 and Version 3 (if you decide to switch to Version 3 in the future).
