Remember that IE compatibility view "torn paper" will only appear when IE detects a possible compatibility issue, it will appear for some sites but not for others although you can over ride this on IE10 by going to Tools, then compatibility view settings, then enter the web addy

I'm using IE10 at the moment and on GR their is no compatibility icon "torn paper" in the address bar but if I go to say Freebmd then it reappears in the address bar.

If you copy from one web site and paste into another then this needs to be taken into account,

As jax has said the C&P for IE is back to normal now, i.e. either use Compatibility View or View Printer friendly.

Google Chrome is the browser that I use. It works fine for me so it might for you.

Give it a go.

It isn't happening with copies from familysearch - which has happened in the past. Hopefully just a short-lived glitch?

I have been running IE10 for about two weeks now. I have just tried to re-post a census that I posted to a thread on the 18th with no problems - today I have got the gaps.

So, it looks as if the problem is recent.

If the messaging system supports HTML then the format will be OK, if it only supports text messages then you get extra linefeeds. I presume FB is like GR and only supports text messages.

When I noticed the birth details I had c&p today were not as they were before, it was not onto this site...I was posting on facebook...surely they are up to date?

KenSE

KenSE Report 21 Apr 2013 21:07

I think the change has been to Ancestry which IE now considers to be compatible so that the Compatibility View facility is no longer needed.

The real problem is that the Genes messaging is so old fashioned that it cannot cope with the table formating and translates the format characters as newlines.

Basic Firefox does not copy tables properly but it looks OK when pasted ino a GR message. If you paste into Word then I believe the formatting is lost.

If the GR messaging was updated, then those pasted lookups would look more like the original than the untidy text we are used to. However with the current Error message problems it would be unwise to make such a change now as I'm sure it would worsen the situation.

For the present it looks like using Chrome or Firefox is necessary if you are pasting lookups into GR messages..

If its any help I have used Chrome for everything for about 3 years now and I have never had any problems and I think it is a little bit quicker than Fire Fox which I used previously

On IE10, you don't have the 'torn' paper, you have to go into 'tools'

Seems to be on all versions of IE

I never have any problems using Chrome, and pages seem to load faster.

There was a thread yesterday, I think, about the same problem.
