    Is there a way to paste stats without losing the spacing?

    example:

    RECEIVING STATISTICS
    Player Rec Yds Yds.Rec Long TD
    Boldin 4 73 18.3 28 1
    Ray Rice 4 20 5.0 20 0
    Dennis Pitta 2 29 14.5 16 0
    Lee Evans 1 30 30.0 30 0
    Ed Dickson 1 14 14.0 14 0
    Torrey Smith 1 9 9.0 9 0
    Kris Wilson 1 1 1.0 1 1

    below is a jpg of copied info above is how it appears pasted

    Unfortunately no. The reason why the spacing is lost is because those stats appear in a table when they're displayed. All you're doing is grabbing them and re-pasting them without the cells, so they don't show up correctly. I agree - it's very frustrating :mad:

    If I recall correctly I have seen others reply with the <code></code> option and if I'm not mistaken the spacing remains intact. It ends up looking like the shaded quote box when you reply to somebody else's comment. An example would be Alamo's Predict the Score contest results, if I am recalling correctly.

    I've never tried it myself and don't know what it entails, so I could be wrong here; perhaps that is an option you want to try? Its' the third icon from the right on the bottom row after you hit reply, designated by the # icon.

    Thanks. I just copied and pasted part of a table from ESPN and tried the code tags. I had to muck around with inserting a few spaces, but basically it worked. :rocker:
    Code:
    RECEIVING
    NAME	               REC	TAR	YDS	AVG	TD	LONG	20+	YDS/G	FUM	FUML	YAC	1DN
    Anquan Boldin           57	105	887	15.6	3	56	15	63.4	0	0	245	44
    Torrey Smith        	50	95	841	16.8	7	74	14	52.6	1	0	228	34
    Ray Rice	        76	104	704	9.3	3	52	7	44.0	0	0	666	30
    Ed Dickson	        54	89	528	9.8	5	25	2	33.0	0	0	170	30
    Dennis Pitta	        40	56	405	10.1	3	39	4	25.3	0	0	143	28
