Reply window woes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I'm not sure if I am the only one facing this issue regarding the reply window.

    1. Key in 1 line of text and press Enter to go to the next line

    2. Go to the URL bar and copy this threads link

    3. Paste it in the reply window and press Enter

    Somehow, the cursor goes to the front of the link, and then creates a new line above the link. Shouldn't it create a new line under the link instead of on top?

  • One extra minor problem (and I don't remember if it was reported). If I insert a code block and then add some text right after, there is no blank line before code and the text and it doesn't look good. It is an old behavior (the original editor had the same problem), but I'm wondering if this can be automatically corrected to insert one blank line right after the code if it follows with the text.

    It's not just links.   It's Paste  in general which is doing that.   Also, infuriatingly, empty paragraphs are being removed, so now, instead of pressing just Enter to get an intended doublespace we have to press Shift-Enter twice to get the same effect.   So, if you can remember to do so (I still forget frequently) press Shift-Enter when you really mean Enter, such as for this case, and only use Enter when you actually have a new paragraph to start.  The empty paragraph removal occurs during Submit, so you may have more space between lines in an Edit frame than would really want



    FYI
