Hi bob3160,

You will soon get the feel with this new forum outlay. It soon will be fitting you like a glove,

Damien,
I don't have a problem with the new forums   The problem has to do with things posted
before the changes went into effect and the fact that those posts now look like crapp.  :(

@ Bob
I generally don't use the regular reply window preferring to use the Quick Reply window and there are no formatting effects in that. So I use a firefox add-on that is invaluable, bbcodeXtra and it is a godsend, see image. 

Whilst it takes a little time to get used to, it is a real time saver and now it should cover those missing formatting options in the Reply window.

I don't know if there is an equivalent add-on for your browser.

The problem is that this wouldn't help, when e.g. "font size" isn't supported anymore by the forum.

David nothing in Chrome like that and as Asyn said it's no longer supported.
My objections aren't related to current and future bost but to those done in the past
which now look like hell and have lost the effects originally created through formatting.

Ahh, I though they had just dropped the tool from the list of options, not that it is no longer supported.

I have to admit that I rarely used a change in font size.

A sneaky round it is you want a smaller size you could try the Sup or Sub tags as that reduces the size, but places the text up or down on the line.

reduces the size, but places the text up or down on the line.

They are probably using a new font size scale. 
On some forums like it used to be on this one, the font size is based on the actual font size numbers that we all Know
Some uses a different scale which goes from one 1-10 where 10is extremely large and 1 very small.


If you introduce that to this forum and under the old system someone applied a font size of 36,
You would have a real mess on your hands.
I'm only guessing but that could be one of the reasons.
To make sure that can't happen again, simply stop using font re-sizing.
