I commented on a post and bolded and underlined a couple of words (I tried by clicking on the options on screen as well as using keyboard shortcuts). However, it didn't actually bold or underline the text. After posting the comment, I clicked "edit" and selected the words, and they are marked as bold but are not actually bold.
Please allow users to revert back to the standard version when rolling out any new interface changes. Other major websites allow for this, such as Facebook and Google. It helps tremendously with change anxiety. But it can also give the engineering team significant clues about how users feel about the new interface. It will prevent panic and stress in users who are suddenly forced to change their whole workflow and have no way to get any resolution on a change that feels upsetting to the user. You can provide notifications and resets to the new interface so that you eventually get everyone on the new interface after about a month. Please allow us users to be able to quickly relieve a change to a new interface that feels bad to us.
In previous community I could receive email notification on every NEW post in my groups. Currently it is not possible.
If I go and edit my profile and look Notification preferences there is NO choice for new posts. There are only choices for answers, comments, replies and things like that and then some things like badges and ranks with no use.
Previously I was a very active community member but not any more, at least not until I can get an email notification from every NEW post from those groups which I want to. I am quite busy mother and when I can see new posts in my email I can easily decide, whether I have time and knowledge to help. But I don't have time to come often here and open separately every my group feed to see if I am any to use to someone. Previously I could see resent posts from all of my groups in ONE page, but that is not possible any more. One more disadvantage.
Biggest thing that I see as a problem in this new Community is that folks have to click into a post to respond and then find a way back out to the Feed to see the next post. Every other social media system that I've used, including the old community, allows us to comment in the Feed. That just may be something that still needs to be done, but where people are used to that, having to click at least three extra clicks in order to post a comment is probably going to make people less likely to comment. Especially, since there is no obvious way back to where you were in the Feed. When I am looking at a message in a group, the banner is not a link back to the group. Nor is the Title at the top. To all intents it looks as if there is no way to go back to the group I was looking at.
I did find that at the bottom of the comment block, there is a hyperlinked title to get back to the group.
However it takes me back to the top of the group, instead of where I was in the list, and if you are adding to a post with several comments, it could take some scrolling to get to it.
I commented on (but did not originate) a post in the Q&A, category Other - Triaged
From the List of the posts in this category , the following is as copied

You will note that it is classified as ANSWERED
If you open up the post https://community.familysearch.org/en/discussion/81838/what-is-the-purpose-of-this-section-other-triaged#latest it obvious that information has NOT been supplied which answers the question.
If someone in FamilySearch is able to make a change which classifies this post as "Answered" when it is not, why could FamilySearch not have supplied the information requested?
If Answered means that a comment has been made, what is the point of that?
In the old community I was able to post to any group - whether I was a member or not.
Was that just some special access I had - or was it that way for everyone?
In the new community it seems like it forces us to become a member before we can post - which I don't particularly like.
were Cross posting in the Old Community - passed to the cross posted group in the New Community?
Any Posts in Old Community that had an imbedded URL - seem to have come across with BAD description
In the new Community - the URL ended up as teh post DESCRPTION
see s an example:
