Several months ago I lost the ‘bar’ or ‘tools’ that allowed me to select italics or bold text.  I see that some members are still able to do this.  Any ideas how to restore this?

Thanks.  I never would have found that.  I was just about to ask you where it was . . .then there it was - a 1/2 inch by 11 inch button right above the bold word -

Another thing, when you are quoting someone and responding, have you noticed it is now harder to see where their quote ends and your response begins?  Faint blue bars, instead of easy-to-see boxes.
