Re: Where have all the Favicons gone...?

Yes, they appear correctly just as before. The only place they don't show is in the bookmarks list and bookmarks toolbar.

Re: Where have all the Favicons gone...?

No, they don't reappear. However, some favorites do immediately have a blue globe favicon. I think these are the ones that don't have an individual favicon. I presume you'll know what I mean but I'll attach a picture if you wish...?

Where have all the Favicons gone...?

I use the 'Use IE Favorites as bookmarks' setting in Avant and, ever since v11.7, I've had minor problems from time to time with favicons (mainly the one where they all disappear following Avant updates). However, I've now been using v2013/107 for a couple of weeks and none of my favicons are visibl...

You're thinking of the Management Bar. The other buttons can be selected by going to Customise Buttons, Other Buttons.

Re: Some websites appear narrow

Stumbled across the solution to this problem by accident when I was using another monitor. It turns out to be a Windows 8 setting issue - Personalise, Display, Change the size of all items. It transpires that the default setting is medium (125%) and changing the setting to smaller (100%) has fixed t...

Re: Does IE10 Spellcheck Work In Avant?

My ieSpell works with IE10 but I think the main question is whether anyone has found a way of making the native spell checker in IE10 work when using Avant. Like Firefox, it underlines misspelled words with a red wavy line etc.

Re: Some websites appear narrow

If you look at my two screenshots carefully you'll see that virtually everywhere the Avant text is larger than the IE10 version and is often too large to fit in the space available - sometimes even resulting in hidden words (eg see the text under the two small pictures top right). On the top story, ...

Re: Some websites appear narrow

Thanks. I'll await further advice from xiaobing. For additional info, this is what an Avant search (using Google) looks like - as you can see it only occupies about a third of the laptop screen!

IE10 - 10.0.9200.16519 and Avant shows exactly the same. Just installed b23 but the problem persists.

Re: Some websites appear narrow

Many thanks. Yes, I'm using the IE engine. Default zoom is checked (100%) and clicking the ignore font sizes box makes things even worse - totally unusable in fact.

Any other thoughts...?

Some websites appear narrow

Just started using Avant 2013 b22 on a Windows 8 pc. Am I the only person who finds that some websites appear to have larger text than normal and so the layout is not as it should be on Avant. A good example is the BBC News website http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/ . I've noticed that some WordPress websit...

Re: Real time spell check?

I can only get it to mark misspelled words, the right click correction feature doesn't seem to work in AB. Select Speckie in Tools > AB Options > Addons I can't even get it to mark misspelled words - how did you do that? I have selected Speckie in Avant's Add ons (and restarted Avant, which is 2012...

Re: When is a default browser not a default browser?

Just do a search for Excel in the registry editor. Once you find the key you can do a search in the sub-keys for iexplore.exe. Once you find the offending key(s) you can change it to [Drive\Avant's folder\avant.exe]. This turned out to be easier said than done owing to the huge number of Excel entr...

If your comfortable enough you can use a registry editor and search the Excel registry entries for it's call to Explorer and change it to Avant. Good idea, hadn't thought of the direct approach!
