    Please can someone tell me how to edit the font and colour of a "signature" on the forum?

    Thanks,

    John

    Above the signature text box you will see similar buttons to those for formatting a post. Text colour and font size are the fourth and fifth from the left.

    Thanks Graham,

    Maybe I'm being dim, but I still can't see the relevant buttons:

    That's very strange. When I click on my forum name at the top right then on Signature the following box appears, with a full set of editing buttons. One for @Jim maybe.

    Mine's the same as yours - is it because we are on iPads?

    Thanks Wildman .....That gives an unfair advantage to people who had already formatted their signatures!!

    I have bold italic and underline thats all everything else has been removed so selective censorship I guess.

    Not in my experience Roger. The screenshot I posted earlier (post #4) was captured immediately before posting, as Jim did. For me it has always been the same with the current forum software.

    Something to do with the browser in use and/or preference settings maybe? Perhaps @Gromett can shed some light on the reason.

    The formatting has probably been removed to discourage folk from producing enormous signatures. I remember some which were so big they took up half a screen on a tablet.

    Which is why I have preferences set so I can't see them!

    Then @Wildman finds a way of getting round this...grrr.. :)
