Re: ACOM Text Formatting Petition

I concur with the petition (for all the good that any message here seems to do!). Many stories that I have submitted in the past get stripped of basic formatting that I was meticulous in preparing. This does make it much harder to read! .......


Why does Ancestry support simple text formatting here in the message boards (OOPS, I now see that they do not, at least, not in MY submission!), and not in the trees themselves? It is extremely frustrating! .......


There is now a new wrinkle: I used to be able to use greater than (>) and less than (<) characters in timeline text, but within the last few weeks, the system started to strip those characters out. I can edit an item that has those characters in it from before, and after my edit and save, these characters now disappear! It is very inefficient if I have to start using .GT. and .LT. in text! It takes four times the space. Odd that they do not get stripped out from this message, maybe the "improvement" has not reached the boards yet.
