  • I thought I was imagining things. Really (I'm using a notebook keyboard with an active mousepad and thought it ws that but couldn't understand why it happened all the time).

    Most software fixes fix old problems. The forum software fixes often seem to  make things worse than before (or as they were before, before being fixed the last time).

    I can't really understand how having fixed something (that everyone including MS agreed needed fixing) in one release, a few releases later and it's back again unfixed. (Which has happened a lot of times)

    Could I recommend some (code) administration software to them?

  • When editing message, if there is a code block in it, extra lines added after every line of code when saving this message. This is very annoying sometimes.

  • There is a lot of history around this change. Over a year ago we changed our editor from telerik to tinymce. When we did this, the enter key did what many other editing applications do, which is use a <P> tag.  Some users complained and wanted just a <br> so we changed it to <br>. However, this meant the <UL>s didn't work (at all really) since applying lists to <br> isn't how things work, they have to be <P>s. Since then we have gotten a lot of complaints about basic editor functionality (<UL>)s simply not working. People want to use these, but can't.

    So we changed the return to be a <P> by default, Users that really don't like that can simply SHIFT-ENTER to get a non default <P>.

    Now, if we are hosing code or breaking other functional areas, that is no good and I'll look into that. But for users that really NEED a <BR> for style or preferrence reasons, can simply use the SHIFT solution.

    In the future we'll continue to look into this.
    If you have additional input, feel free to post back.

  • Thanks for replying.

    Please would you explain/define what you mean by <P>, <br>, etc.   We are not all programmers you know.

  • Sure, <P> is a paragraph tag, this is what happens now when someone hits their enter key in the editor. The <P> tag is an html element, typically a new paragraph creates more space between lines than just a hard line break like a <br> tag.

  • A few years later, this still seems to be an issue. If I need two spaces, I'll hit the Enter key twice :)
