Perch 3 Redactor - not useable

Sorry to keep posting about Perch 3 with Redactor, but it is the Editor used in most of my installs and therefore is important to my sites.

I am finding it impossible to highlight a line of text to make it a heading, with out the line above being formatted with the same style.

alt text for image

Template:

<perch:content id="text" type="textarea" label="Text" html="true" editor="redactor" imagewidth="640" imageheight="480" />

Is this our core version or one you've installed on your own?

Simon Clay

The Core version.

Can we see your template?

Is there anything in your Console?

Simon Clay

Simon Clay 127 points

No errors or warnings in Console.

Template is text_block.html:

<perch:content id="text" type="textarea" label="Text" html="true" editor="redactor" imagewidth="640" imageheight="480" />

I agree - Reactor with Perch 3 is not very user-friendly.

If you use back space at the beginning of the paragraph it starts to delete the characters from the previous paragraph rather than joining the 2 paragraphs together.

Plus there's no way to view the source code.

I've had to revert to using CKEditor (yuck!)

Will Perch 2 Redactor editor addon work with Perch 3?

They're the same editor. There isn't a difference between Redactor II in Perch 2 and Redactor II in Perch 3, save for the configuration of the toolbar.

Simon Clay

There is a difference in using it though Drew.

As Glen mentions, there is also an issue (I suspect related to the main issue of this thread) when deleting at the start of a paragraph (to bring the sentence up to the line above for example) where the last character on the previous line is deleted.

deleting in redactor

Are you using Firefox?

Simon Clay

Simon Clay 127 points

I usually use Safari, but have tested in Safari, Firefox and Chrome (on Mac) with the same issue.

Happens to us on Chrome (Windows 10)

Redactor have made a bunch of changes lately, so see how you fare when we ship an updated version. I don't think any of this is influenced by anything in Perch.

Simon Clay

Will do. Thanks Drew.
