Fixed Inline Code vs Code: Bug? or Suggestion?

Affected version


Well-known member
This has been true for several Xenforo versions and I can't recall how far back it goes.

If I enter some text like a URL and then highlight and click Inline Code, it wraps the highlighted text in the appropriate icode tags.

However, if it's a block of text and I highlight it and click Code, it just gives me the empty code edit popup. I have to go back, copy the text I want, delete it from the post editor, and then click Code again and enter it there. It's a bit annoying to say the least. Basically all other BBCodes act like Inline Code, not like Code.

Shouldn't the Code feature act the same way as the Inline Code feature?

If this is not a bug, can someone move this thread to Suggestions please?
