I'm not sure if this is the best place to put this, but here's my situation.

I post in various Vbulletin-based forums, but I've noticed that only in this one do I get a series of "[SIZE=2] [/SIZE]" codes that crop up when I preview my posts before submitting them.

I usually draft my responses in a word-processing program (LibreOffice) and then copy-paste them over to here. The post looks fine until I click on "Preview", and that's when the Size Codes appear all over, usually at the start and end of each line. I then have to go back and manually delete each occurrence before submitting my post.

Again, this forum is the only one (so far) on which I have this issue. Has anyone else encountered this minor quirk?

PS: I don't know if it has something to do with the fact that there are no font-size controls in the post editor. I thought it might be my choice of word-processor, but again, other Vbulletin forums don't have this issue.-

CD doesn't remove the formatting code unless you click on the Double A font icon at the top left of the posting dialogue box.
I usually just compose in notepad, or in the CD VB editor.
