    There's a show that I edit with a lot of the quotes crunched together, all italicized. There doesn't seem to be a way to edit the quote that starts with the italics.


    Any ideas on how to fix it?



    Thanks!

    I've seen it happen if there's an unclosed quote tag in a preceding quote. Check the quotes before it to see if that is causing the problem.

    That didn't work =(


    Thanks for the suggestion, though!

    Does anyone have any other ideas on how to fix this? I can't edit the Notes or Allusions section, so this is really a bummer.

    It might help if we could see the problem. Which guide and episode is it?

    In each episode I checked, you have an open italic tag for the character stage direction in the first quote. Replace the open <em> tag at the end of the CSD with a closed </em> tag, and this will fix the problem.

    Part of the problem is that when I hover the cursor next to the first quote, the normal prompt of EDIT/SHARE does not appear. I'm going to try to re-order the quotes with the first one at the bottom of the quotes section to see if that might reboot the EDIT/SHARE prompt.



    Thanks for the help!

    Well...it didn't work.


    I put the quote with the unclosed tag at the bottom of the quotes tag, but the prompt to EDIT/SHARE that particular quote does not come up. What should I do?
