editor not showing in text area in blocks

I have a blocks template that includes a text area, editable with ckeditor.

Problem is that on initial load in Perch the text area shows without the editor toolbar - save the content and then the editor toolbar appears.


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

<perch:block type="image" label="full width image">
<img src="<perch:content type="image" id="imagefw" label="Image - full width" width="780" />" class="scalable" alt="<perch:content type="text" id="alt" label="Image Description" required="false" help="e.g. photo of cheltenham box" title="true" />" />

<perch:block type="file" label="downloadable file">
<a href="<perch:content id="file" type="file" label="File" order="" />"><perch:content type="text" id="desc" label="File title" order="1" required="true" title="true" /></a>

Does the problem still exist with an up to date install of Perch?

not updated Perch yet but did update ckeditor ;)

◦1.9.1 – Made Blocks-ready

all good now
