    Default Space Bar Not Working

    I'm finding that on multiple computers, my space bar no longer works if I attempt to do a "Reply with Quote".
    Replay, New Post, New Thread, and Advanced windows work just fine.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    I experienced that yesterday. Reloaded the page and the problem went away. I figured I had accidentally hit some obscure key combination. Guess not...

    Ha ha
    Yep

    Interesting that once you hit return, the next line is normal, and when you go back to first line you can edit and it works then

    Yes I have had it happen to me as well. It did not do it this time but it happened to me the other night and I restarted my computer thinking it was where I had not turned it off in several days. Glad to see that I am not the only one.

    I had this problem a couple days ago when trying to reply to a PM. I just composed my message in Notepad and then copy and pasted it into my PM reply. My spacebar is working fine in other applications, and in this reply, so.......I have no clue what the problem was

    Happens to me to, but only for 'Reply with Quote.' I work around it by doing 'Reply with Quote', copying the quote, cancelling, hitting 'Reply' and pasting the quote back in.

    I knew a guy on another site with the screen name, 'Spacebaron'. I thought it was some science-fictional thing. He told me that it was from a time that the spacebaron hiskeyboard wasn'tworking right.
    I always know where I am. I'm right here.

    I just figured out that if you go above the quote and start typing it works fine and then you can just cut and paste it to the area below the quote and it stays the same. Strange.

    I noticed this too the other day. It is a Chrome issue. I have been told that the next update to Chrome is suppose to fix this. Only time will tell.

    I just got done updating Chrome and this problem has been resolved for me.

    Happens to me often, I just hit "Go Advanced" and the problem disappears.

    then hit Enter, type what you meant to type, go back up, and delete the corrupted line.

    Happened a few times to me, but not consistently. In any case, I'm glad that Chrome is fixed.

    Start your reply to the quote immediate after the end quote bracket and the space bar will work. Once you have completed your reply, move the cursor back to the beginning of your statement and tab it down. It works for me every time since this issue has started.
