what's wrong with the fonts on this forum?
« on: 20:33, 15 April 19 »
I find that 90% of posts i reply to or paste into (i don't have to paste anything actually), I end up with fonts changing everywhere including microscopic fonts.  Does anyone else have this issue and a good way to avoid it? (currently I have to paste into notepad, then replace the entire message and reformat things I want to reformat)

Yes, it's super annoying. I just select all the text in the reply and click the second button from the right "Remove Formatting". It's been like that for a long time  :(

Cool, I didn't know about the remove formatting, at least that is better than nothing.

I think it's the browsers and their 'rich content' copy+paste feature.


I usually copy the text and paste it in Chrome with Shift+Ctrl+V to only paste the text.


Another option is copying to a text editor (Sublime Text, for example) and then copying the text from there to the browser.

@robcfg has got it right, it's got to do with rich stuff and all that. If you copy/paste from Notepad it'll be fine. But indeed, removing formatting fixes that.

It's not as annoying as the BLEEP on every page in the forum.
