I can't type angle brackets (like > and <) in the non-rich editor. They go the same place as new lines. I hope it's a happy place.

Hmm, sometimes they survive, lets try angle-fx foo close-angle, as in a code sample:

yup, vanished. ffs. how am I meant to talk about MXML (i.e. that big Flex project Adobe do) then ?

Are you talkign about the HTML Mode vs the full rich text editor?

If so, its not just a plain text mode.  Its HTML mode.  Ergo, it expects html

So the considered view of one of Adobe's community experts is that I can either have spell checking but no line breaks, or line breaks but no spell checking ?

Helpfull.

It is unfortunate that browser spell checkers dont work in the rich text editor.  I would prefer it.  But, there is a spell checker in the rich text editor.  It works a bit different than a browser checker; but it does work.

Only for a limited subset of laugauges, and it certainly doesn't know all the words I've added to my local dictionary. I mean, ColdFusion an Adobe product name confuses it !!!!

I imagine that the spell checker is the general list that the software developers have included. It is customizable tho, so if people want to start a thread for Adobe specific words that should be added to it, John can grab them at some point and plug them in.

no, if you use firefox, you get inline spell checking turned back on when you use the html editor as default. you've got angled brackets (per my post above) and what's this about line breaks? i don't seem to have any problems... if it's a real issue, you can add a <br>... 😉






see? 🙂

ah. i see what you mean. it IS stripping soft carriage returns when posting. i just had to go back and manually add <br> tags to a post.

not THAT big a deal, but would be nice if it handled them natively... or at the end of a post, before hitting the post message button, you can switch to the rich text view and hit enter a couple times... that's hwat i just did here.

The line breaks stripping is especially annoying.
