I keep noticing there is no option to send a composed PM in this forum if you are using an iPhone. I can if I am using my iPad, but not an iPhone. The is only a preview option, no send. If you look at the preview, there is still no option to send the PM.

I use thr iPhone a lot to keep a full charge on my pad in case my daughter Facetimes with my little grandchildren.

Has anyone else noticed this? Am I just not seeing the send option?

Thanks for any assistance.

 I had the same problem, I could not answer messages to me for the longest time. There is however a really faint faint Icon  to push to send

@steveduf  Approximately where is the icon located? I can poke around there. LOL Is it next to the “Preview”, on the left side of it?

Okay, logged in with my iPhone. Could not see anything faint either, but I just touched the screen to the right of “Preview” and it sent to @bocaholly . Hope you don’t mind I tried it with you. Tried sending to myself, heaven knows I talk to myself enough, but I could not send to myself. dazed

roflol Thanks for the early morning chuckle, @cid 

Yes, I did get that PM sent from Cid's iPhone. Taking bets on how much time I'll spend today looking for that magic spot to tap myself.

But first, more coffee1

DOn’t worry about seeing anything, folks, just touch to the right of the “Preview” button. It will tell you it was sent. Thanks, Steveduf!

This little tidbit helps immensely. My little granddaughters need that Grandmama time!

Yay, followed Cid's instructions and sending a PM just worked from my iPhone for the first time (not for lack of previous attempts 🙂

I just figured it out myself, I ended up getting Irv’s email because I couldn’t get it to work.  Finally after trying to communicate with Shane, I figured it out.

So please try using a different theme and see if it's more visible. I could change the default.

Ok, folks. I just did some theme trying. This is what I found for the light areas apparing, specifically the little arrowed envelope icon for sending private messages. 

The following themes work, and I stated how visible the envelope to send a private message is.

Minimalist

Light-of-the-angels (odd yellow theme) (kind of faint)

easter-eggs (quite visible, but you better like bright colors)

Wintery-blue (faint)

Desert-haze (very clear)

Ice (faint)

berries-n-cream (visible)

fools-gold (very visible, but bold color theme)

Caribbean (very clear, but bold and bright color theme)

Late-summer (very clear)

Gin-and-tonic (faint)

Cool-blue (faint)

Brown-cream (clear and actually not so bad a color theme)

In-the-money (clear and not a bad color theme)

Hope this is of some help. I was able to see it on my iPhone with these. It is extremely difficult for programmeds to create programs where every aspect of it works on every form of defice, software, etc. But these themes seem to work on an iPhone. I made little comments about what I thought of some of the themes. I did not try the pink one. I do not do pink. I would have to wash my eyes. blurry_drunk-2127

Yes, I need to spend my time better. To be fair, I have been overdoing my violin, viola and cello playing and am resting my bowing arm today. Plus, I already made egg salad, designed a business card for a brother-in-law, finished completing two Graffiti Quilt tops (awaiting a response from my daughter as to which granddaughter wil get which one before I can continue), unloaded the dishwasher, did a load of wash. So, not I am just in my comfy chair. And I simply cannot go a day without playing, so before I sat in my comfy chair, I played my violins, for just a little while. All done.

Thanks for the tests Cynthia. I changed the default to "In The Money" for mobile devices. You can still choose anything you like but if you don't, you'll get, "In The Money".
