Duplication of words in Posted Small Basic Code RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • When using the Format Code Block function from the toolbar  in posting Small Basic code, some words get duplicated, eg. x -> xx, GraphicsWindow -> GraphicsWindowGraphicsWindow. This means that code cut and pasted from the forum does not work. As Small Basic is intended for beginners, this is important as it could put them off.

  • Yes, this is an old bug that seems unsolvable.  Posting code to a MSFT forum has never not been a problem.  Try the Select Language combobox, start with VB.  Practice in the Sandbox forum.  If that doesn't work out, I can only recommend using FireFox, you can just copy and paste code into your post without having to use the Format Code Block option.  Recommended.
