View Full Version : IE 10 - carriage return

05-24-2013, 07:55 PM
Well this is kind of disconcerting - and yes I am using extra words to see what will happen. This forum is the only one were a carriage return will not happen in PM's or in posting to a thread. Enter or control enter nothing seems to work to generate a enter. At least if I type long enough it does eventually wrap. It does not work in lets see - PM's, quick reply or even in advanced mode. So I am typing lots of characters just to see what will happen. I checked a several other forums and the CR-LF always seems to work in quick reply, advanced reply or even in PM's. Of course if I use google chrome on the site it works - but it is older than than the version of IE, but not that old. I think IE 10 downloaded a couple of nights ago. Looks like from here(http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum/vbulletin-4/vbulletin-4-questions-problems-and-troubleshooting/3963341-ie-10-and-carriage-return-in-editor-4-2-1) I might need to disable some addons to see what works. time to play. :)

Mark , what's a carriage return ?

Kidding right? It is the key that you hit when you get to the end of a line. The key you had to use on a type writer. It is the key labeled "enter" today. On the first keyboards I remember it was called return. It is how you start a new line if you do not use word wrap. Carriage return is how it was taught to me back in the 70's. :) I need to go find a picture of the first computer I ever programmed on.

:thumb: Thanks Mark, recently I had that problem with my IE9, a reboot fixed it, this looks like a better solution.

LOL - it is a sign of my age. :) My mother was a great typist - and I could never top her, but she really encouraged me to take a typing class in high school. It was always called carriage-return(or return) in the class. Since that class I have almost always called in carriage return. And yes - I have even had some customers I am helping say - which key is that? Then I have to stop and think, and then say - hit the enter key.
