I used to access my Autosaved messages from my Profile Page in the previous format, and it appears that this is no longer possible. I would like this functionality to be restored, because it is much easier than having to locate that thread and reply again to the exact post in order to access my Autosaved message.
When I Quote another person's message in a Reply, though their original appears in the default font [Arial or Verdana or whatever it is], the quoted version is in Times New Roman or Garamond or something, very noticeably different because the latter is a serif font and the former is not. And what I type in, whether after Quoting the other message or not [including now] is likewise in the latter font if I don't do anything about it. But when I Post it, it's all back in the former font.
When I have explicitly changed the font of a message to something Arial/Verdana-like, sometimes when I go to add something in the middle of it, what I add is Times/Garamond-like, though surrounded by Arial/Verdana-like things. The T/G text is noticeably smaller than the A/V text at the same nominal size and therefore harder to read, and in code with multiple-space indenting of lines, the indentations don't line up. [I haven't yet tried leaving that alone to see whether it Posts differently, but have always forced it to conform.]
And another: this thread has a Subject line in which an ampersand appears with "amp;" following it [Rich Text format]. I can't imagine that's what the Poster typed.
Two things about LINKS:
When I pick on the link icon, the slot in the window that comes up for the Link URL already has http:// filled in. But when I am in a thread I want to link to, and I grab its URL to paste into the link window, that also includes the same prefix. So I need to remove the prefix in the link window before I paste the URL in.
Today [I don't remember this happening before], when I put a link in, it goes in at the very beginning of my message, rather than at the current cursor location. It happened here and in the present message [I had to move that link into place].

This isn't necessarily a problem, just an annoyance (and maybe it's just me). I frequently switch between my browser and other applications/windows (i.e. Revit, AutoCAD), and when I want to reactivate the browser window while on the "All Forums" page, I click on the white space between the board listings so I can scroll again. The annoying part is that the selection area for the text extends way past where the text stops (as per the image below) and I frequently end up accidentally navigating to that board.
