    I check New Posts, rather than go through each forum. When I am done, I like to mark them all read. Unfortunately, "mark forums read" also changes the read flag for posts that have appeared since last searching for new posts. If it is an active time or active thread, new posts may be marked inadvertently as read and subsequently missed because of that time lapse.

    Can the "mark as read" flag be made to apply only to the "new posts" that are currently showing?

    My work around has been to go to the main screen, refresh, check new posts, then go back and mark as read. That works, but a is little cumbersome.
