#26421 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

DFW has a border around the editor

Reported by: nacin's profile nacin Owned by: nacin's profile nacin
Milestone: 3.8 Priority: normal
Severity: major Version: 3.8
Component: Editor Keywords: has-patch

In 3.8 (not reproducible in 3.7), the editor has an odd glow border. Can't place where it is coming from. Screenshot attached.

Given how distracting this is, I'd say this is pretty major. :-)

With the shadow. Feels heavier, something I've always hated about our visual editor.

This is with Twenty Ten, FWIW. Don't know if that makes a difference, but doubtful.

DFW = distraction-free writing, the fullscreen mode.

Same thing in Twenty Fourteen, confirmed in Chrome and Firefox

This is used on the main editor page. That said, I think the editing experience is improved significantly with it removed.

Since it is applied to the html element rather than overlaid on the editor, it gets lost when you scroll down. So maybe it's an indication that you're at the top of the document. I dunno. I am fine with ditching it, but will leave it to MT and melchoyce for that decision. If there is a desire to keep it, I am sure someone (azaozz if necessary) can work out the right CSS to not have it apply in DFW.

I think the regular editor feels fine without the shadow. Let's ditch it.

In 26659:

Remove the shadow on the TinyMCE editor.

This removes it from distraction-free writing and also gives the editor a bit of a lighter feel.

fixes #26421.
