What conditions make the "Remote" button dimmed out versus being able to enable or disable remote audio/microphone?

    Usually due to an incorrect setting of default audio devices.

    Actually, it is because no default sound device is available.  Either recording or playback.

    Thanks Bill, I give that a shot!  Or should I say 'a mouse pointer?'

    If you don't have a valid speaker enabled on your computer/laptop, then the audio as "no where to go" and the Remote is greyed out.

    I just had a laptop, with the audio speaker defaulted to a DAX channel and it was greyed. Right clicked on the speaker icon in the lower right tray, got it connected to the default speaker, then the remote became active.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
