    Last couple of days the @(name) function hasn't worked, I have to type in the name
    If it can be fixed that would be great, if not - that's OK

    Starting off the name was okay but had to double click to complete it.

    @Ken Anderson, I also had a problem with the name auto-fill function today. When I saw @Patsy Faye 's thread I just responded with what worked for me.

    I had some issue with that too @Patsy Faye but when I hit a space after I type the first name, the little box came up so that was a work-around for me. Today I see all I have to do is the typical first name and the box pops up.

    Oh, okay. Things that are a problem only sometimes are not generally ones that I can fix. Sometimes, it's a little slow completing the name when I want to flag someone, and I might have the whole thing typed before it comes up, but usually it works for me.

    I think it has a lot to do with how many people are using the site, or the internet as a whole. Like in my area, there are faster times than others. Sometimes if I restart my browser, then things work better, or faster again, so I know it's not always a site. I've learned to be patient with things. I know my sister gets all worried, and frustrated because she thinks her computer is broke. I tell her it's just a glitch, and it will pass. That's after I go over on teamviewer and check out her pc for her.

    @Denise Happyfeet what is a teamviewer? I know that aol or a remote trouble shooter can view a computer online. But that's the extent of my knowledge on the subject.

    Now another question. I have an iPad Air 2, so I need some advice from someone who understands how they work.

    How do you accomplish a double clIck action on an iPad? Anyone? o_O

    Can you explain to us what you are trying to do that you can't do with the iPad , @Ina I. Wonder ? Pretty much , everything is just so simple on the iPad, so I am not sure what you are asking.
    If you can tell us what exact thing you can't do, maybe I can understand what is wrong and help explain it.

    Yes, it's a remote control program @Ina I. Wonder I'll let someone else help you on the Ipad. I don't have one, but I can easily look up "how to's" if you don't find someone to help.

    From what I just read, I think it will be in your "settings" @Ina I. Wonder You can set your IPAD for single or double clicking. My laptop is also like that. How you get to your settings, I am not sure, haven't looked that far. I have my laptop set to single clicks. I really don't know though as I've never had an IPAD;)

    It's the double click action I'm confused about. And, on a regular mouse you can left click and right click. How is that accomplished on an iPad? So I guess it's two questions. :oops:

    When I attempted @Ken Anderson - then clicked the box, the box would disappear and I would have to finish typing in the name (any name)
    This morning your name worked. Just tried @Denise Happyfeet - it worked on the second click
    So a bit haphazard for me and the solution is the double click, thanks to Von :)
