  • Editor Issues...

    Can the font size / style / type / color be changed?

    At 60 years old, even with glasses, the text is too thin and dull colored.

    There's been several times when it fails to update the page after changes...have to reload the entire page (it appears) to get the changes in.

  • Hey Bruce,

    When you ask if the font size/style/type/color/etc can be changed, are you referring to... the source mode? I am assuming so, since the answer for rich text mode is yes. Currently source mode does NOT have any options to change the visual font/styling, although that is a good thing I can add. I'll file a feature request bug. I'd also like to one day add some basic syntax highlighting, but that is considerably more complex, requiring a completely custom element that captures input and formats on the fly, etc. That, obviously, will be a "down the road" feature, if implemented.

    When you refer to updating the page after changes... can you give an example? I don't know what you mean by you have to reload the entire page to get the changes in.

    • Yes, I'm referring to the "source" code view. Personally I'd like the option to completely remove the "Rich Text Editor" as anyone who doesn't have basic grasp on HTML shouldn't be in most templates (but that's just my opinion). I can see "optionally" adding it in place (i.,e, strict Content sections) but I believe this is begging for problems in the long run.

      As for the reload problem, its not consistent, but in two separate sites I've tried making a simple update--looked at the live site to see the changes didn't take place--attempt update again...then used the "Reset" button (which should probably be renamed to Recall) and saw the change was actually never made.

      • I also noticed a couple items I'm either overlooking or are not there. Source mode - would like to wrap text like old system because it runs on quite a ways, also spell checker

        • Word wrap exists, but it cannot currently be used in conjunction with line numbers. To see the option, you must first turn off line numbers and then the option will be available from the menu.

          Spell check is also available, but it is a global setting. Edit your user and go to the Settings tab. Those settings will actually be changed soon, and eventually all that will be done from the editor itself and can be applied to just that editor, or globally. As of this release, however, that is the place you will go to enable the spell checker.

            Hmm... I haven't seen this happen when I've used it. What browser are you using? Do you get any javascript errors or anything when it happens? I'll keep an eye out, but I haven't had this happen in all the times I've used it...

                Mainly use Chrome. Its only happened twice (although the first occurrence took me three tries to get the changes to stick). I use a Chrome extension that NEVER caches. One thing of interest is this happened the FIRST time I ever used the new interface (and hadn't noticed the Store Owner updated to 9.7 :) ). Also, the first time it happened the Admin basically 'crashed' so I have to reload the page. So maybe there an "first time" issue somewhere which would be really hard to replicate. Will let you know if It happens again.

                • It would seem that in the Rich Text Editor mode, unbeknownst to the person entering the content, an HTML <br> tag is inserted at the end of the content. It was discovered when a store owner started seeing a <br> at the end of all his descriptions when they appeared in his SearchSpring results. When I did a test to confirm, I created my product description in the Rich Text Editor mode:



                  I saved it and then viewed it in Edit Source Code



                  This <br> is being picked up by SearchSpring's feed. It would be nice if it wasn't there at all.

                  • Its probably a good idea to have feeds like search spring strip HTML from the data source...though yea, adding a randome <br> tag isn't really great.

                      Yeah, I'm already on it but I thought this should be pointed out.

                      • Interesting. It seems like the browsers insert a trailing <br> tag in the contentEditable divs. Curious. I'll look into it and see if there is anything that can be done. I wonder if all browsers are doing it, or just certain ones (like chrome, etc).

                        • I also do not like how the RTE "messes" up the HTML previously added. It reminds me of "code" that has been copy and pasted from Word.

                          • One more thing. I may be the only one seeing this, and suspect its because I'm zooming the scale in or out at times, but: sometimes I point the mouse at say line 1, and when I click to focus, I end up on line 5 :)
