Hi, I am looking for any information, ideas, or help about formatting Course Messages. We are on managed hosting, using Original Blackboard Learn - Release 3500.0.6-rel.16+7744aa6.   I have an instructor who asked me why Course Messages removes the line spacing after a message is sent. After an afternoon of testing, here is what I discovered.  … (Show more)
