Cut and Paste Bug - Little "P" from wymeditor remains.

Postby cj7hawk on Tue Mar 23, 2010 10:56 am

I can't quite tell if this is a new error or an old one that I'm misunderstanding other people's posts on.

When there are several para's in WYMEDITOR and you cut ( drag mouse, Ctrl-x ) and past more than one elsewhere, the little "P" and paragraph formatting gets reposted back into the document.

Then when the data is posted, there is something like the below in it:

<p style="background-image: url(http://mywebsite/wymeditor/wymeditor/if ... /lbl-p.png); background-attachment: initial; background-origin: initial; background-clip: initial; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); padding-top: 8px; padding-right: 5px; padding-bottom: 5px; padding-left: 5px; margin-top: 10px; margin-right: 10px; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: 10px; min-height: 1em; background-position: 2px 2px; background-repeat: no-repeat no-repeat; ">

So this then comes out in my document, looking like the line formatting in Wymeditor.

At the moment, I search for this formatting and filter it out, but it's definately a major bug - because it's impossible to edit out with the editor once it's in there.

The workaround is to write a post-edited-filter that looks for this line and strips it out - but it would be better to do that within the application -

Hope this helps :)

Hi David!
I can't confirm this issue. Could you provide some more details (browser, os, etc) and post a ticket on the Trac site.

Cheers! ;)
