One of the planned updates for the next release of Connections is to improve the rich text editing of the Bio and Notes fields. Well, I’ve made great progress with that. Take a peek at the screen captures.
I’ve dropped jWYSIWYG for rich editing. Unfortunately it just isn’t robust enough and had some flaky behaviors across different browsers. In its place is tinyMCE, the same editor that WordPress uses but slimmed down, while still expanding the editing capabilities. Before you could only bold text, italicize text and add links. Those formatting options are still there but now also include underline text, numbered lists, bulleted lists and paragraph justification. You also can paste text as plain text, which is useful when pasting content from a webpage. And paste from Word, very useful for when pasting content in from Word as it removes all the proprietary mark-up. Last but not least, multiple level undo/redo.
