Problems with submitting articles

Post by Canadanne » Fri Jan 31, 2014 7:41 pm

Ever since I got automatically "upgraded" to IE v.11, the form for submitting articles hasn't worked properly for me. I can type straight into the box (although it weirdly expands the size of the box every time I hit a key!), but it doesn't let me paste anything into the box, which is what I would normally do after composing an article in Notepad. If I try to insert a hyperlink, it's impossible to close the dialog box as the OK & Cancel buttons and the X in the corner don't work. And if I try to insert a picture, nothing happens. In short, it's completely unusable in this browser unless I only have a couple of sentences to submit.

I am just wondering if this is likely to be fixed at some point so I don't have to install additional browsers. Is whoever designed the editor aware that it isn't IE11 compatible?

<sigh> Probably not. Though nothing's changed in the last 6 months.

There are so few editors and I have yet to find one that's compatible with everything. That, and people use the editor so rarely that I only ever hear about any problems every 6 months or so. So every time I go back to the problem I've forgotten which editors I've already tried.

Have you tried the various buttons for copying/pasting?

Okay, I've installed a new editor. Give that a whirl.

I regret to report that the new one works even less than the old one. Thanks for trying, though!

The problems with the old editor relate to IE 11. But I'd rather not have any incompatibilities at all.

I shall investigate, but not for a few more days.
