Didn’t there used to be a ‘Preview Post’ option when replying to a post?
Also all of my options in the overhead tool bar are grayed out?


Never mind, I found the ‘Preview” button at the upper right corner, still have the overhead tool bar grayed out?

The preview is at the upper right with the magnifying glass, are you sure you're not in preview mode with the grayed out icons?

In preview mode, you can't use the icons.

Also on the upper right are four icons inside of the ‘Preview” button.

What is the function of the “[ ]” icon?

When that is blue the other icons are grayed out.

That shows and lets you edit bbcode.

I'm still a bit puzzled why the XF developers placed some formatting (such as the [ U ] in a default hidden line underneath the other options on the left.

I just figure they wanted it to look less cluttered and simpler, I prefer it the old way though.

I try to KISS...........too many options for this old bird!
They keep it simple by putting the most common tools in the bar, with more options available in each drop down. Text tools on the left, rich content in the middle, and tools on the right.

How do I cancel a post? The whole time when I’m reading threads on my phone, I end up hitting the reply buttons while scrolling. Really annoying.
