When you push the button ‘recent posts’ and get the ‘New’ button that brings you directly to the new posts, what is the difference between listing the items in the drop-down window with or without this button? In any case there are new unread posts in this thread? If there is no ‘New’ button the link takes you to the first post of the thread and you have to browse manually to the last page containing the newest post(s)…
When in Edit mode, I think the quoted message font gives a lot better ‘readability’ than the yellow and orange fields still if the largest font is selected during post reading.
In both cases I am using my iPad Air.
