Jive Auto Carriage Return - Workaround?

After about 20 characters Jive inserts an automatic carriage return.  Very annoying.

I have found that if I press enter twice before I start my message I do not get this annoying feature.

Has anyone else found this works for them?

I am using the latest Firefox browser in Vista.

This has been reported mainly as an Explorer problem, which I'm using now, but I also get in in Firefox/Mac, which I can't try until after the weekend. I don't recall having read your workaround, but I am testing it now and I don't seem to be getting the extra linefeed. I remember having read as an official workaround to remove the extra carriage returns manually!!! Your method is much better; I'll keep on testing it.

Well, I did some further testing here, and your

workaround seems to be working. This time I did not use your wor

karound and the difference shouls be obvious to anyone who i

s not blind. Sorry for the blabla, but I need long sentences to see if the problem is still there or has gone.

Sorry, I left out the link to my additional test messages in the special thread for testing; this was unintentional:

Back when I was using IE 7, and getting those phantom line-breaks, it seemed most likely to happen within a certain character count, or number of lines in most cases. However, I observed several times that it happened many times, well into the body copy, i.e. even after a dozen lines - BOOM!

Now, the Dbl-Enter might well clear them all. If I still used IE, I'd certainly give that a test. With Chrome, I have yet to have any.

Good work, and hope that it clears those up - makes reading tough.

Further testing seems to confirm that your workaround does work. I used it for typing this message from Explorer/Vista.

Glad to hear it works for someone else also.  I was getting real tired of

those auto returns (dang nabit

forgot to hit the enter bar twice before typing message), and then correcting them, or not.

Now if the work around was scriptable using applescript for Mac or VBA for PC would be great. This seems to be the biggest bug needing fixed. For now.

My workaround?

Post and help people over at PanetPDF. Their forum software may be simplistic but at least it's stable.

It's PlanetPDF not PanetPDF, although with all the Phone Techsupport Problems maybe it should be Pan-itPDF

Just looking around seem like its too PC centric just juding by all the tools available.  like for example the  PDF TO Excel and PDF to Word
