    [XCODE] Tags Only Working in Advanced Editor

    I generally answer questions using the basic editor and, in the past, I have simply typed my [code] tags. With the new [xcode] tags, they appear not to be processed correctly when just typing into the basic editor. It's not the end of the world to have to use the advanced editor but it does...

    Merging menus in MDI forms

    Judging by Office 2003, Microsoft have decided that the "proper" way to deal with menus and toolbars in MDI forms is to show everything in the parent. When Word, etc. is set to not display document icons in the taskbar, you can layout your child windows in the "old" fashion, but all menu and...
