Looks like the OP's does, but replies don't?  (But if I look at a topic I've started as OP, it's missing.)

 

Oops, looks like there are things to check down at the bottom.

    Testing to see if a reply has those options. I see it doesn't.

    You got it, WZZZ. You have to check the box each-and-every time you post.  For a reply you have to toggle "Use Advanced Editor". Also, the info you entered before the change is DELETEABLE but not EDITABLE.

    Thanks Romad. Is this $#@^%& up or what? You wanted this???????? This is all your fault.

     

    Yesterday I remember being able to comletely delete a reply or an original. Is this now gone? This was my way of trying things out now that preview is gone.

    I didn't see that option, perhaps it was part of the 15 minute window? One thing that was there but is now gone was the ability to edit your original post even after 15  or more minutes had elapsed. It was there Saturday night, and I think on Sunday, but on Monday it was gone.

     

     

    Nope, I don't see a way to delete a post completely; just the text.

     

    BTW, thanks for the "helpful" star; I lost 10 points during the conversion, so now I'm halfway back to my previous number.

    Advanced Editor: where in creation is that?

  • romad Level 3 (605 points)

    Top right of window.

  • WZZZ Level 6 (12,855 points)

    There you go. You're all the way back.

     

    I still don't see Advanced Editor. Screenshot maybe? (for a solved? heh, heh, heh.)

    LOL! No, all I really wanted was some fine tuning: custom avatars, ability to change alias, better sub-categories in the forums, etc. The reason I kept asking was they made the announcement 8 months ago, but then never kept us informed as to progress. They could have at least asked a bunch of us to beta test this during that time.

    Unfortunately, I suspect that for the next several days or maybe weeks the behavior of a lot of things will change as features get switched on or tweaked. That will make the learning curve that much steeper, but at this point there probably is no way around it.

     

    I have pretty much resigned myself to not expecting anything to work the same way two days in a row, so I'm kinda amazed & pleased when something does. Perhaps an extreme example of looking for a silver lining but it does cut down on the impulses to smash my head against the desk or throw things at the screen.

    Let me see if this works. You'll have to scroll right in the graphic; also I couldn't get Preview to activate the Annotate options. Duh! I forgot those tools only work on PDFs!

    Click on "Reply." Look just above the right top edge of the reply toolbar. You should see "Use advanced editor" in gray type.

     

    Clicking that will take you to a new page with the advanced editor & the message you are replying to below it. (You won't be able to see the other posts, so you might want to open this in a new browser tab or window).

    testing....

     

    What I'm seeing is that Use Advanced Editor appears only for the reply, not the subsequent edit. That's why I never saw it. When I click on it for a reply, it gives me the ordinary edit options.

     

    OK, I see that's how you can add your hardware if you are replying. Thanks all.
