That method is the only way I've ever gone about it. Then again I write all of my threads in a text editor and then post them. I tend to be verbose so it's a process of writing the thread ( all BBcode by hand, which helps to learn a lot of the tricks of making ATS work as well ) and then copy and paste to see if it fits into the standard create a thread field ( which never happens )... then I figure out where it cut off, go back to my text document and push enter several times to create a visual break - and then copy the rest into a random thread reply box - to see if it fits.
If not - exit out and repeat the space bar thing.
A lot of members do the same ( use an external text editor ) so that they can proofread and polish. I am way too lazy. But the verbosity forces my hand. LOL
My work around - select the pic and copy the code and paste it.
