    space bar issue

    Why does the space bar not work correctly when typing in themessage box? Using windows, every time I hit the space bar it scrolls down. IfI use my cell or firefox it works fine. I typically type in Word then paste ithere. Annoying

    I'm sorry about that issue. I have not encountered it myself, but I will begin testing it to track this one down. This could be because Word is using a formatting that the site is incompatible with. Could you let me know what version of Windows and browser you're using?

    It only does it when I'm using my laptop, but when trying to type a message in the dialog box the space bar causes the screen to scroll down instead of spacing. I then type my message into Word and copy/paste it here. When I get home I'll check which windows version I'm running but pretty sure it's 10.

    Thanks, I am looking into this. One thing I would like to point out - pasting content directly from Word can sometimes cause problems. There is a button up in the text editor that has a feature that allows direct pasting from Word. I don't think this is what's causing your issue, but it's something to consider.

    What browser are you using? I think I have an idea what the issue might be.

    I am running Windows 10 and it appears the issue has been resolved.

    Finally being able to type directly into the dialog box instead of using word is nice. I almost forgot how easy it's supposed to be to reply to messages.
