    errm.. not fully understanding what you mean.. are you referring to the 'you' being split on to 2 lines ?

    If so... more examples are required.. and a URL to the exact location where this is happening would be nice :)

    Actually examples are little hard to find as I end up re-jigging the posts with extra spaces etc.. in order to get them all looking ok... but essentially Md' is right the lines keep getting cut off.

    some lines are quite short and some not

    I'm hoping that somewhere in this drivel the fault will occur??

    This is just like a car always breaking down but never at the garage!

    Which HDD - speed essential

    There gotcha!

    I had to put a space in before the text i.e

    +essential] Which...

    to get it to look right:

    You lost me by miles m8...

    actually.. just edited your post... kinda see what you mean... but thats just basically going the long winded way in breaking the system/looking for a break... this isn't a common fault... haven;t spotted this anywhere lately :-/

    Which HDD - speed essential

    This is what yah mean i'm guessing

    of the top of my head.. i'd guess this is a code parsing fault... its translating something into a \r\n or something like it... would have to report it to vbulletin.com to get a proper fix for it... but we'd need more evidence for it...

    if yah can find anything else on it... do post up here

    Thanx

    How Rare!

    The text cropping is actually starting to happen to me now!
    e.g.
    %SystemRoot%\system32\compmgmt.msc /s

    Obviously all that should be on the one line.

    ooohh this one came back from the grave!!

    The cropped text thing was only happening to me at work, as was the 'xp-erience banner' crushed in transition screen. But as we don't get the fade in banner anymore it's not a problem!!

    Only solution to the cropped text thingy - if your concerened w/ presentation - is to add spaces etc! MOst awkward when posting links as they tend to be the worst for this problem.
