• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

All of a sudden when I write a post, whenever I hit the Enter key, I'm seeing additional blank lines, as if I pressed the Enter key more times than I did. I have to do the preview thing, then go back and delete the extra lines.

Any ideas what is causing this?

If you are hitting the Enter key, thus inserting a carriage return/line feed, there's no need to do that unless you are trying to create a new paragraph. The forum software will automatically break your lines to fit the screen. For example, this reply was typed without hitting the Enter key at all.

This is something new, as it started happening to me for about a week now. I always use carriage return and never had it create double spaces between paragraphs before. Kind of a pain.

I under understand you are saying you've enabled automatic word wrap? The only problem with that is if you want to format text differently.

I usually try to use multiple paragraphs. That is to keep separate thoughts apart and avoid confusing a reader.


While I hit the Enter key twice, once to end the paragraph a second to add a line space, it looks like an additional line space was added (as in one more carriage return than I actually typed). There have been no changes to my computer that I'm aware of that would cause this to be happening. Just like iMonitor said, its been a week or so since this began.

I
have
no
issues
with
double
lines.

The Enter key was pressed once between each word above. The result is a single line. It could be something on the RR end. It could be something with your browser.
