Was the rich text editor changed, its a pile of shiite now, to add images or links as clickables, can we please have the old one back or at least an option to choose the old one.

If I double click on enter it doesn't move the curser down 2 lines but just sits after one, I then have to rehit the enter key.

Whatever happened to Not Broken, Don't Fix?

Disgruntled, East Midlands.

Blame Micro$haft. They screwed a lot of things up with their last updates. I reckon it was probably an attempt to encourage ordinary punters who have gone over to non-M$ browsers to return to their product..

A number of online forms on sites I use for business - e.g. events registration forms and Windows based data transfer systems etc - which used to work without problem with non-M$ browsers are currently only working properly with IE due to Windows automatic updates causing clashes.

Edit: I seem to recollect Matt mentioning something about the change in a thread in response to questions at the time.

But I am using IE and always have.

I've now got IE9 on a 64 bit windows 7 platform.

This has all started since we got the text editor with the new icons. The other one worked like a dream.

I presume you mean this post Bob.

Unfortunately we were forced to change our Rich Text editor because when those good chaps at Microsoft released IE9 most of the functions stopped working on the old one (including the spell checker)

However I have now enabled the spell checker on the new one so it should highlight any spelling errors as you type them whatever browser you are using
 

So are we saying that Microsofts programming forced every website that was using the old text editor to change it to restore functionality, that would probably be 100's of thousands of websites. Just to let Matt know, I only upgraded to IE9 3 days ago, been having trouble with the text editor since it was installed.
