#22799 new defect (bug)

Erase Formatting Doesn't erase

Reported by: RDall Owned by:
Milestone: Future Release Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.4
Component: TinyMCE Keywords: has-patch needs-testing
Focuses: Cc:


In the Content area of a page under the visual test manager of a page if you highlight text click the bold button add italics and cross out. When I I highlight the text and then click the erase format button it only removes the italics and leaves the cross out.

On two other builds I have tested this problem with it turns the text red?

Have tested on two local installs. (one clean to test this issue) and one external install. All using Trunk all the same issue. See screenshot for visual reference.

Is this reproducible in 3.4.2?

  • Keywords needs-patch removed

That looks like two different themes to me, probably styling stuff (markup) differently. What's the HTML/Text tab show? Screenshot of that is probably fine.

  • Keywords has-patch needs-testing added; reporter-feedback removed
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 3.6

Since we use <del> tag for the Strikethrough button, we need to specify it as removable with the Remove Format button. This can be set in the formats init option. Also added there few of the deprecated elements that are supported with the patched html5 schema.

HTML5 defines strong, del and em as having semantic meaning and not a styling one. If all the editor does is styling then it should use style="font-weight:bold" instead of strong etc..

Looking at the patch the deletion of strong, em, del, and ins is wrong as it changes the meaning of the content.

Yes, best to handle this when upgrading to TinyMCE 4.0. The above patch works but needs more (border cases) testing especially with more complex HTML.

For reference: there is a native contenteditable command editor.execCommand('removeFormat') that typically removes only inline styles. TinyMCE normalizes and extends this, so tags and classes can be removed too.

I'd love if we could get this committed in the trac ticket scrub of 3.7

comment:15 RDall8 months ago

Tested patch and it works as expected with 3.7 alpha. Is there any other specific things I would need to test to get this ticket closed?

Replying to azaozz:

Yes, best to handle this when upgrading to TinyMCE 4.0.

FYI I tried this with the new TinyMCE in WordPress 3.9 and it still doesn't erase the strike through abet a minor annoyance but still there. Maybe we should report it to TinyMCE as a bug?
