Anyone else having problems typing in the text area using Chrome Version 37.0.2062.124 m with cftextarea richtext?  It won't let me click inside the text area.  It works fine in Firefox.

Most likely the older FCKEditor.  And it's possible that CF8 and CF10 are using different versions of FCKEditor.  In any case, I wouldn't be surprised if it's a bug in the editor that recent versions of Chrome exposes.  Yet another reason not to use CF UI components (like <cftextarea>) and just use a JavaScript library/framework directly for UI stuff.

8 and 10.

<cftextarea name="description" value="#variables.description#" richtext="yes" width="850" height="450"  ></cftextarea>

Do you know if CF is using CKEditor or an older version of FCKEditor?

Ok.  do you recommend a text editor?  The initial problem was the editor adding an extra line break when copying/pasting from a pdf.  We have over 1000 pdfs we're trying to convert over.

And is there a place to report bugs to CF?

I don't have any personal recommendations, but the current versions of CKEditor and TinyMCE seem to be popular.

You can file bug reports for Coldfusion here: https://bugbase.adobe.com/
