Found this via one of Forum Editors replies in a post, so he gets all the credit, reluctantly!

You can highlight someones user name and drag and drop it into the Title box.

There must be lots of tips being used but not shared, perhaps a Speakers Corner post?

Thanks for that - some of the names are quite difficult to get right (don't know if the above says Sapins but hope so).

  Sapins 12:46 12 Oct 2004

Come on!!! Sapins isn't difficult to get right ;-)

I've been doing that almost from my first visit several light years ago...:-))

It enables you to get a nickname such as that of Magik ®© correct.

Yes, but, you didn't share it with everyone did you? ;-)) Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da.

Now it's good afternoon from me!!!!!

Copy and Paste is one of the most widely used features of any computer system..:-))

However, anyone who tries to do it using drag and drop will find it impossible to achieve as everything in the vicinity will also be highlighted.

I have just managed to drag and drop individual words from your post,so I don't quite understand what you mean!

Regards,

Sapins.

One critical point that you didn't mention was, after highlighting the nickname, to temporarily release the mouse button and then do the drag and drop...:-)

Otherwise, by highlighting and dragging and dropping you are still highlighting everything in the vicinity.

See what you mean now, I've just highlighted the whole of our front room, still, saves on electricity ;-)

end: If you post something in the wrong place we'll not know anyway LOL.
