Greatly Expanded Functionality in Rich Text Editor

Based on feedback from community members, we have greatly expanded the options available in our Rich Text Editor. While I won't list all the new features, they include cut/copy/paste, subscript/superscript, print, etc. This should make text formatting easier and more flexible, and reading posts easier and more meaningful.

 

As before, each formatting icon has a tool tip explaining what it does. We hope this increases the value of the Enterprise Business Community to you, our members.

Re: Greatly Expanded Functionality in Rich Text Editor

>they include cut/copy/paste,

 

This is useless unless you're using IE!  The error says:

Your browser doesn't support direct access to the clipboard. Please use the Ctrl+X/C/V keyboard shortcuts instead.
(I'm using firefox 35.0.1 or chrome.)
 
This isn't a big loss since I use keyboard shortcuts anyway.
I would suggest if the buttons don't work, they shouldn't be displayed.  Or to make a level playing field for ALL browsers,
remove the three buttons completely.
 
About the only useful button is "Paste as text" toggle.  And "Clear formatting", which I had to use to remove double spacing.

These are now gone in firefox.

Why was this button removed?

Re: Greatly Expanded Functionality in Rich Text Editor

Since there would no longer be any direct cut-paste or copy-paste dualities, we felt it was best to remove all of that button set together.

 

I hope this is helpful,
