Tab Location

I was just wondering, is anyone else finding the tabs at the top of RDInn a bit unconventional? I find that when I want to navigate to an article under "Latest Updated Forum Topics" I have to go through Armoury tab. This in turn opens up the list which covers the tab I wanted to click on. I then have to move my curour off the list and wait a few seconds for it to turn off.

I'm just wondering if I'm the only one that gets repeatedly sucked into this time trap of 5 seconds, or if others are having similar issues.

Also wondering if there are any ways that this could be fixed (oor if it is even worth fixing as it is a thing of inconvinience of 5 seconds at a time).

I get stuck all the time, i know the feeling of the lost 5 seconds that you could have already been at the thread in which you want

Well I haven't that issue. I can move over the any of the five Latest Updated Forum Topics (or any blue lettered subject), the little hand appears and I click. The topic opens right up without delay.

It may be a firewall issue with your browser.

Stretched and elongated proportions

This screen must be even wider than I had feared. For me the Latest Updated are so far to the right of the tabs that they fall more or less directly under Support RDI.

If I needed to check a PM, though, I might be threatened by the placement of the Audalis tab... if I got PMs and if I checked them and if the tab were wide enough to accidentally hit instead of the really short Articles tab.

This does answer a separate question for me, though. I was wondering why most of my posts look much leaner than I expect them to be when finished... this monitor has been turning probably 4-5 line paragraphs into 2-3 line little snippets.

Opposite problem...

I can guess what you mean, but with me the tabs don't come down at all. It might be my pop up blocker, but I did disable it (though with this it might just be some thing windows 8 has. I still haven't got used to all the quirks of this computer.).

I too have a Tab problem

For me it's both the Articles and Interactive Tabs at the top. All the other Tabs work fine except those 2 and I have yet to figure out why.

Frustrating at times I will say that.........

So odd

How everyone has different lay outs. Good to hear my exact issue isn't (as of yet) that common place. It is only 5 secs, but when it can happen 3-4 times in a given session at ye olde rdinn, it can get a bit irksome :<
