    Quick FYIs: New Message Formatting Options; How to Post Sample Reports Properly

    Mike Urbonas

      Welcome to our new online forums.  We are pleased to have upgraded to a new vBulletin system, with many new options over our old forum, including several message formatting options as you will see when you compose your new messages.

       

      On another note, it is often very useful to show others a sample portion of a report you are trying to work on in Monarch.  To display your report properly, copy and paste your report text in between CODE tags.  When typing a message, you click on the #[/B] icon to display a set of CODE tags.

       

      Note that a simple copy/paste using a block font like Courier will not display your report properly:

       

      [FONT="Courier New"]03/01/06                  CLASSICAL MUSIC DISTRIBUTORS                   PAGE 01

      10:17                       MONTHLY SHIPPING REPORT                            

      MSR94                      FROM 02/01/06 TO 02/28/06

                3658 Springs Ferry                                                   

                Suite C-130                                                          

                Marietta, GA 30067                                                   

                USA                                                                  

      /FONT

       

      But a copy/paste within CODE tags will look very nice indeed.

      Note[/B]: The CODE tag must appear with the word CODE between brackets; that is,

      [[/B] and ][/B] and then "closed" with:  /CODE again between brackets.

      10:17                       MONTHLY SHIPPING REPORT

      Even better, a very wide report will not alter the appearance of the rest of the page (as it did in the old forum):
