why is it when you reply to a thread post you can view the previous posts at the bottom of the screen to refer to when replying, but you can't do that in a PM. I know there's the back button, but its a bit cumbersome, and I've gone forward again to find my message has gone and I've had to start again!

ah well.. always e-mail I 'spose!

Annoying I know but that is the forum software we are using

If you press quote on the PM, you can add your bits (and delete theirs) as you go along. Or you can right click and copy, and then go back to look, and still keep what you've typed. It's not ideal, but it's a solution of sorts!

Course if you do quote from a PM, make sure you delete all the quotes once you're done, otherwise you'll wind up replying to people looking like you've said exactly the same thing they have.

Not of course that anybody nearby has ever been known to do that
