    I tried to change the font to an equal-spaced font (courier new) to more clearly show a couple of small tables in this post. And although the text is displayed correctly before posting, the final post does not show a change in font in that text's section. Why is that?

    By default much of the white space (non-printing) formatting put onto this forum is deleted by the all knowing, all seeing, and completely illiterate program controlling all transmission.

    One way around this I have found is to use the courier new font wrapped up in code tags. It looks a little weird but preserved the white space for tables.

    Code (Text):
    1. RMS peak to peak  noise     resolution
    2. ---------------------------------------
    3. Gain 1            1380 nV   20 bits
    4. Gain 128          52 nV     18 bits

    Yeah, I know about that workaround... But there should be a simple fix for this. I mean, why put the font option in first place if the thing doesn't work?

    While overall I like the new software, the WYSIWYG editor is a significant regression. I don't mind writing with manual tags. In fact, I prefer it as I can get output exactly as I want.

    Switching to the BBCode editor helps, but if you switch back (or try to edit a post), all your custom white space formatting gets lost.
