I have been using the new CkEditor for a new campaign I am starting and overall I am liking it, especially since I have been trying to use html and stay away from Textile for a while now. I wanted to thank the OP development and support teams for getting this feature out and making the switch to it as painless as possible. In the course of using it I have come up with some questions, requests and observations.
Toolbars: Are the toolbars going to be customized to only present the valid options? Unless things have changed we can't use iframes, and form elements within our pages and having all these extra elements makes the UI clutered and a little confusing.
Inserting a Link: When inserting a link there is no place to set the display text. I figured out that if you type your display text, highlight and then hit the link button it will use the text you highlighted, but changing the url to the link text after inserting removes the link. Am I missing something on the Link Popup or does this need to be an enhancement request?
Linking to OP Pages: I can't find anyway to insert a Character or Wiki Page like the buttons in the Textile Editor that brought up a list of characters or wiki pages. Is this a planned enhancement?
Character Editor: Is the CkEditor going to be available on the character pages? Even though my campaign is set to use the CkEditor the Character page is still using the Textile editor.
Overall I really like the new CkEditor and in actual use I have not run into any issues with it. For a first round of implementation I think the OP team did a great job with this and have renewed hope that this is the kind of rollouts we will get in the future where things work. I am willing to accept things being pushed out working and than having features added to them overtime instead of waiting for everything to be done or rushed out changes that break things.
I am interested in hearing what others experiences with the new editor have been and what tips and tricks that my have come across.
Again thanks to the OP development and support teams for this long awaited enhancement as it has gone a long way to restoring my faith in continuing to use OP for my campaigns going forward.
