Where is that damned A coming from?

For the last two days, every time I type the pound sign it is preceded by a capital A. I have tried System Restore but I can't get rid of it. Any ideas?

It's annoying isn't it? If you try to delete the A in 'preview' you get even more of them!

Very annoying for both poster and reader.

I am relieved that it is not just me!

Jodi Tue 11-Dec-12 07:29:12

Now I can't even get preview to

Can't get my head round all this. The spirits have taken over my iPad or GN is about to crash again. So it's time to get up.

I've just had problems with preview too Jodi

Was it the GN office party last night smile

Now the font has got bigger and will not change. The gremlins are really at work on this site!

Yes, I've had slight problems this morning, font size keeps changing, problems loading page sign etc... but the bookmarks still don't work! grin

I thought the font looked different! What on earth is going on? As soon as one glitch is fixed, even more appear! GNHQ will soon disappear under the mountain of techie complaints at this rate. I still can't upload photos, clck on a post and read it without all sorts of manoeuvres, or preview and correct posts.

I have not been able to upload photos for months. Tech tell me it is something wrong with my computer, but I have no problems posting my photos on Facebook! And I have some lovely snow scenes at the moment!

You know what's coming to you all, don't you? Phone rings. "Good afternoon Madam, I believe you're having trouble with your computer..." Maybe they're just drumming up business when so many of us have put the phone down on them! grin

I've uploaded a sweet photo of the wee man and a friendly/patient pussy cat. I believe it's 4th in the album. I've been trying to reduce the size of the photo for ages. No matter how hard I try, it remains GINORMOUS. What's going on? confused

Hey - just tested this above - seemed to work fine for me. Can you give us more details about what browser you're using and exactly what happens? If you have any other tech issues, please mail us at [email protected]

Sorry - also does the £ sign thing only happen when you preview before posting?

whenim64 Thu 13-Dec-12 11:05:06

It was happening on my iPad yesterday. Am on my laptop today £££££ all ok!

It seems to have righted itself. I use Internet Explorer and Windows 7.
