OEN's New, Awesome Text Entry Tool/Window Is Up. Please test it

Our new, awesome, beautiful text entry tool is up, with lots of new features, including centering, numbered lists, bulletted lists, indenting, undo last action, and select all.

Our webmaster/programmer has worked hard to debug it. But there are probably some things we still have to find and fix. So please test it out.

Note that there's a new way to add images that will take a bit of getting used to.

Any observations or suggestions are requested and welcome.

As I've mentioned, this really major improvement to OpEdNews has come at great expense and we could use your help, if you haven't made a donation yet or purchased a premium membership.

R.K.

The tool seems to have a problem with translating an ellipsis. It will either translate to a single quotation mark or the three dots indicating the ellipsis becomes three commas instead. At least that is what I have encountered.

Our webmaster's response:

There's an icon for inserting special characters.

Try using that where you want the ellipsis. Click on the icon and choose an ellipsis.

That works for our webmaster.

Ten-four.

By the way, my photo has also disappeared; no doing of my own. Might this be related to the upgrade?

Thanks R.K. I have, as you know, lived through many a software conversion, migration in my time and it is often beyond challenging. From the developmental side there is the corruption/misinterpretation of legacy data and on the user side...whew.

Hang in there because in the end, most of the time, it will be worth it.

I used it, I like it, it saved a little time, but one question, which may be quite obvious to you but is not to me: is the 900 character counting not include the characters for editing at the top of the page, since they are still in the blue box (I think)?

I hope this one has zero software glitches, and you must have tested it out too?

We've done considerable testing, but I trust our users to find more issues.

Yes, seems to be a problem adding a 'link' to a comment? I had added three links to my comment and they all disappeared when I went to 'edit' that comment to make further changes? The new format is not accepting my 'paste' click when I had 'copy' a sentence or two from an article that I had wanted to link to my comment?

Susan there is a link icon on the second row (the icon actually doesn't look much like a link.)

I can't find the way to add the little dingbats (or scrolls, or whatever they are called.) I think it used to be under the little "i" in a circle.

Slightly off subject but not much: there are several "tip" pages at OEN about submitting articles, but one thing I couldn't find was anything about actual mechanics. For example, should it be from MS Word, a pdf file, or what? Is there a way to just use this new text entry tool to compose an article, which would be a simple way that doesn't involve any extraneous software? For example, there could be an article submitting webpage with this text box as a feature.
