When you do crossing outs, it doesn't work, just because you put a " straight after it! And this bolding probably won't work because I have put an exclamation mark right in front of the *!

I did exactly that bathsheba but when you go back to do the first that’s fine when you go back to do the end 2nd one it joins up
--like this—
If you leave a space then that doesn’t work either
--like this- -
So I tried with just one at the end
--like this-
But none of them work

Thanks Bathsheba. I’m very impressed. Been trying to do this for ever ages!!

BlueBelle Thu 23-May-19 20:54:23

So what can I do to get that elusive space in the end dashes
--bah humbug—
I do a dash
write word
do the end dash
Then go back and do a first dash
Then go back and do the end dash (which immediately joins up)
I m going to cry

--does that work—

Nope

Anja Sat 25-May-19 06:42:51

try again

Bluebell try this

Put dash then word the dash

Now go back and put a new dash in front of firsr dash then second dash IN FRONT of last dash not after it

yippy

Mamissimo Sat 25-May-19 07:06:25

I can do it 😊😊😊😊😊

BlueBelle Sat 25-May-19 07:28:24

try again
I was adding the second - at the very end of the word instead of creeping in and putting it before the end dash
Thanks so much Bathsheba it’s looking promising now

Whoop whoop whoop

BlueBelle: I can't work out what this thread is all about! As far as I can see, "strikethrough" must have some weird purpose; surely "deletion" does the job with far less angst! shock

Not so Rufus it is intended to convey a subtle meaning to those who are too stupid just don’t get.

Bathsheba Mon 27-May-19 20:31:32

Haha, only just returned to this thread and have been giggling at all the posts with people trying to work out what I meant.

Glad you got there in the end BlueBelle wink

Yep, Gonegirl I could make a killing couldn't I? gringringrin

Not so Rufus it is intended to convey a subtle meaning
Anja; By 'eck! He's got it , I think he's got it! shock
What's the problem? It's dead easy! Just follow the thread instructions; 2 dashes at the front, 2 at the end and bingo, or am I making it too simple, missing something?
Quote; " I think you're a stupid old git very talented 'Netter, Rufus, to get it first time." Is that what you mean?
I still don't see what use it is; Aussies don't do "suttle". grin
