    I can no longer highlight text when I want to cut and paste parts of a message. I seem to be able to highlight a whole post and copy that though, but thats not any use. Is it me or the new software thats causing this?

    I take it you're on Internet Explorer, Ord?

    If you want a quick work around then the problem doesn't happen in Firefox. No idea why.
     
  4. Ord_Sarge, Try placing your cursor at the beginning/end of the passage or word(s) you wish to highlight, pressing "Return" and using the corresponding cursor-arrow key to highlight what you want.

    Noticed its IE only. Stuck with that at work but Firefox at home is fine.
