Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 807900
Unable to select XML properly
Last modified: 2013-07-01 19:26:47 EDT
You are unable to select the XML in the codemirror text input area when the line wraps. If you do select the XML the cursor stays on the original line further along the page. Typing here does insert text in the wrapped line but its very hard to pick the position. The issue appears to be in the Code Mirror library but will require some more investigation.
To get around this you can extend the width of the Text Area to stop the wrapping.
1. Open topic 6917 or any topic with a long string on a single line.
2. Scroll down tot he wrapped text.
3. Try and click the wrapped text.
Another easy temporary work around is to copy and paste all of the text into a text editor, do the edit and paste it back into Skynet. ;-)
Updating to the latest version of Code Mirror appears to have fixed this issue. I'll add some more details when the build is put together and tested better.
Fixed in 20120329-1646.
As I stated before updating to the latest version of CodeMirror fixed the issue that with being unable to select the test in all the examples I found.
However there's a possibility that the Stylesheet and Script are cached, so you may need to empty your cache before you notice the changes.
Wrench->Tools->Clear Browsing Data
Make sure that at least cache is ticked, the rest you should probably unselect. Also up the top select "the beginning of time", then click "Clear Browsing Data"
In the "Network" Tab in the "Cached Web Content" section click the "Clear Now" button.
