Browser issue  Cannot remove text formatting totally


Active member
Just made a message via the quick reply field and copied some formatted text there.
Highlighted the whole text and pushed "remove formatting" button.
The whole text got exactly to the forum style.
But whatever I am typing after that text gets the deleted formatting.
I tried to "remove formatting" of everything in the field - nothing helps.
The way out is to write with a strange format, then post, then edit and then it works - you can remove formatting.

Switch to the plain editor whenever you're having problems.

The WYSIWYG editor sometimes gets "confused".

It's more or less a browser quirk. You may not have actually been highlighting everything, just the visible stuff. (Ctrl+A will get everything.)
