I believe that the enter key is used to start a new paragraph.* You shouldn't have to hit the enter key after each line as you would on a typewriter.* Remember those?
As to the spell checker, mine works OK.
In the computer world there is always someone behind the scenes making changes.* Sometimes to add features or fix bugs and sometimes to keep the bad guys from attacking.* This forum is hosted for us.* John and I do not make changes to the programming.
With that being said, if you notice any changes try to think back if something has been changed on your system.* Did you just install an update on your Firefox or other browser?* What about Java?* Are you using a different computer?* If you didn't make any recent changes, maybe you need to.* It could have been our host that made the changes to our forum software.
Be sure you are up to date on your Operating System (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.).* Update your browser if it is a stand-alone like Firefox.* Update Java (you will find that in your Control Panel on Windows computers).
I try to keep all of my stuff up to date.* I do not like Auto Updates activated on most software.* It sometimes uses too many resources and can be intrusive.* I prefer to do it manually.* I have over the years experienced updates that will actually break things. This is usually quite rare.* In most cases another update will fix it a little farther down the road.
