Thread: Enter key not working

  1. #1

    Default Enter key not working

    For some reason, on multiple computers, my Enter key is not working. Well, it IS working, but not separating the lines.For example, this should be on the third line.^ This should be down two more lines.Any ideas? (I'm now typing on the 8th line but it will probably all be one continuous paragraph!)

    Rather than use Questions/Problems/Suggestions forum, a forum for CPF board concerns, I've moved this thread to the Cafe.

    There seems to be a problem with the forum. I view the forum on an iPad and a number of the icons are not working as they should or not working at all. The 'current' icon, for instance, will not work unless I touch the extreme right edge of it. The 'exit' icon will not work at all in landscape orientation but will work in portrait orientation. I use the Forum Runner app if that has anything to do with it.

    There is no problem with the forum, I suggest you look a little closer to home for your solution. - Norm

    Something's up. I have an iPhone 5, home computer, laptop, and computer at work. They are all completely different ranging from IE8, IE9, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Windows Vista, Windows 7, differnet ISP, on and on....No recent updates, changes, viruses, software installed, nothing...this problem happens with any computer I use.

    The problem is present in my home also......Firefox desktop and Safari iPad2.

    When I touch the return key twice on the iPad, the cursor drops one line and a p appears.

    Manually adding < br > (without the spaces) is the only way I can add breaks.

    Test - after two "brs"

    Test after another two "brs"

    Just kidding.

    I'm on an iPad and I find that I have to hit the B button twice every time I reply to a post or else my on-screen keyboard drops away after every letter. Annoying. It doesn't happen when i quote someone, though. Sometimes, when I start a new paragraph the first letter does not automatically capitalize, but, if I backspace over it, my shift key highlights and all I have to do is to type the letter again and it's capitalized. Strange.

    I can work around these issues and I proof read everything before I post it anyway, but, it's just annoying having to do a bunch of corrections after writing a long post that, in the past, on the same iPad, I never had to do.

    Return key is working fine for me on the forum. However I think my Escape key is malfunctioning. I keep pressing it but I'm still here.

    I've recently noticed this on different forums too. This is on IE 10 on Windows 8. If I use compatibility mode it works fine.

    Yeah, I love it when you get the error message on startup - "Can Not Find Keyboard, Press Any Key To Continue"
