Smiles and positive posts are all well and good, but sometimes I need to vent a bit. How about you? That’s what The Monday Peeve is all about, a chance to blow off a little steam at the beginning of the week, so then we can go merrily on our way once again (hah). I’ll pick a topic that’s on my mind, but you can vent about whatever you please, here in comments or on your own blog. Grab the photo, use the TMP tag, link back to me (or not), and Bob’s yer uncle. I do reserve the right to delete any links that offend my delicate sensibilities. So far, none have, but it could happen. I have feelings!
Today’s peeve is about writing poetry on my phone. Why can’t we get text single-spaced there? What is with the obsession of whoever designs code to put auto-double spacing for “enter” everywhere? It’s soooo annoying! We can do so much with technology, but a single-space “enter” option? Ooh no, can’t do it. When I write on my phone here on WP I have to go into the html and put BR everywhere I want single spacing. It’s a pain in the butt to be sure, but at least it’s possible to get rid of the extra white space, if I spend the time. But on Medium? NOPE. I contacted the help menu and was told it is impossible. Huh. We can send dudes to the moon, but no one can figure out how to create a single-space option for phone poems. It should ALWAYS be an option, imo ~ we shouldn’t even have to “shift-return” on a regular keyboard. There should be a button to click for single or double spacing throughout a piece of text, just as we can bold or italicize it. WHY IS THIS NOT A THING?
