I can't cut and paste text in the HTML online editor. When I try to highlight it with my mouse to cut it nothing happens. This is true in IE based browsers, I haven't tried it in Firefox yet. Don't know if its the text editor at fault or browsers. If others have this issue I would like to know, since I don't know what the workaround is. Sometimes I want to rearrange paragraph order but can't without hitting Control + C, copying entire article from online editor into Notepad, rearranging stuff to my liking, then pasting it back into the online editor again. Time consumimg and not much fun.
I don't use Rich Text editor--I do the coding myself--but I've messed around with it just for comparative study and found I can cut and paste just fine with it. I don't understand why I can cut and paste with one text editor but not the other.
Next issue is my problems editing already-published articles. I open up the editor and for some reason all of my line breaks < br/ > are instantly stripped from the text, and if I don't re-insert them before saving revisions my blockquotes lump together into one big ugly mess. Why is the text editor stripping my HTML when I open it up to make revisions?
Another issue is the "Recent Comments" box in my Sidebar. For some reason it often is empty (no text displayed at all) although there are three recent comments that should display there. If you hover with your mouse for less than a second, the comment trailers reappear. If you hover for more than a second, they dissapear again. This is obviously not an issue I can handle on my own but needs to be looked into by WordPress.
If anyone can offer help I'd appreciate it. If there are forum threads or FAQS that already address these issues I'd be more than glad to read them, too. Thanks.
