I'm still playing with the many features on this forum, and just discovered that it has polls. Now don't be too hard on me. Artisans are fragile.  ;-) 

Best,
Dave

I'd like to know if it's possible to transport a table or figure (from outside) into the text box here? If so, please tell me how to do it.

I find the above tool buttons (e.g. bold) a bit clunky and cryptic, obviously not made for or by Macs!?

Thanks,
Ulla

Hi Ulla,

this is how you add an image provided its somewhere online (I don't think there is a direct upload image function?):
Code: [Select]
[img]http://asia.olympus-imaging.com/products/dslr/e520/sample/images/thumb_03.jpg[/img]
which will result into :




Table would be a little more complicated - unless Dave knows some other method. Basically you need to use (like with the image above) a pseudo HTML code. For example, this:

Code: [Select]
[table]
        [tr]
[td]Apples[/td]
[td]44%[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Bananas[/td]
[td]23%[/td]

[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Oranges[/td]
[td]13%[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Other[/td]

[td]10%[/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

will give you this:

       
Apples44%
Bananas23%
Oranges13%
Other10%

This is rather clunky, I agree. If it is somewhere online, it may be easier to just share a link to it.
