smiley faces in Code inserts

Is there a way to prevent the inclusion of smileys in a code insert box?

 

I want this:

 

Code Insert Smiley Issue.png

 

But get this:

 

'cut a column
excelApp.Columns("G:G").Cut 
'insert the cut column
excelApp.Range("D1").Insert
'adjust column width
excelApp.Columns("D:D").AutoFit
'reset selected cell to A1
excelApp.Cells(1,1).Select
'suppress prompts (such as the compatibility checker)
excelApp.DisplayAlerts = false
'save the workbook
wb.Save

 Thank You,

Curtis

Great question, and I'm actually not sure. Would be wonderful if we could turn the smilies off in certain boards that tend to have more programming scripts in them.

 

Let me find out what we can do, and I'll get back to you.

 

Thanks!

 There are a couple of threads in this forum on the topic and I believe it's still a individual user display preference unless there has been an update that Jillian finds for us.

 

Until then it is explained how to disable viewing them in this thread.

This is one of the many things that have been complained about since the very beginning of the Lithium disaster. Eric pointed out the per-user turn-smileys-off thing fairly early on, here:

 

http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Autodesk-Discussion-Groups/How-to-prevent-smileys-from-displaying-espe...

 

As we pointed out at the time, that's not a proper solution. Code should always display unformatted, period. It's not complicated. The fact that Lithium still hasn't fixed this problem 24 months later tells me that it never was, and most likely never will be, a suitable platform for technical discussion groups like these.

Fixed, there was a setting that was released not too long ago we weren't aware of.  As long as you use the "Insert Code" button you should be all set, see your OP, smiley is gone :smileywink:

Hmmm... thinking I ought to go put a sticky post up in the more programming centric boards about this new functionality, huh?

 

Glad we were able to help!

If "D:D" <> "D:D" Then
MessageBox.Show("No kudos for You!", "Autodesk Forums")
Else If "D:D" = "D:D"
MessageBox.Show("Thanks! :D", "Autodesk Forums")
End If

A sticky probably isn't needed, since it's now working as expected without the need to do anything special.
