Ok, so the goal would be to have 3 buttons aside the edit field:

  • - Set description (Renders the feature with changed description)
  • - Preview description (same as 1) but edit field stays displayed)
  • - Cancel (Discards changes)
Cancel can more or less already be achieved by clicking on the pen again.

We are also working on including a wysiwyg editor which maybe makes the preview button redundant.

The Cancel button is explicit, on the screen present, request that doesn't need any documentation, as it is used in any GUI to quit last action without changes.

If you are close to have WYSIWYG working then there is no point to bother with Preview. Although, it shouldn't be big deal to create Preview. It is just Save+Edit functionality combined under the Preview button.

So far the WYSIWIG seems OK.

It works in Firefox.That is what I use right now.

Konqueror kde4 is somewhat confused, after few times Enter to make space betwen paragraphs it made space, but left cursor at the top.

As I use somewhat slow computer right now, I can see that Konq is very slow to respond. First time I though that it didn't register press on Enter and then it spit out all keypersses at once. I didn't tested after that.

I didn't use other browser to check this.

Still Firefox.

WYSIWIG skipped empty lines.

Actually it removed one newline.

This is after double new line.

This should be preformatted text.

Though I can't see change in font?!

Double space above. Saving.

Preformated text test (Firefox) (Paragraph mode):

#export EDITOR=/usr/bin/vim

#export EDITOR=/usr/bin/mcedit

# For some news readers it makes sense to specify the NEWSSERVER variable here

#export NEWSSERVER=your.news.server

TT function does't hold when pressed.

When text is highlighted first, then TT pressed, preformat seems applied, as moving back trough that text will highlight TT, like it is pressed.

Though, it removes newlines and I got to correct that manually.

#export EDITOR=/usr/bin/vim#export EDITOR=/usr/bin/mcedit# For some news readers it makes sense to specify the NEWSSERVER variable here
#export NEWSSERVER=your.news.server

One time to enter Preformatted mode.

Two times got to select Paragrpah mode to exit Preformatted mode.

Double space above. Saviong now.

How to correct spelling?

Like Saviong > Saving.

Revert changes scraps all that is written.

Browser spellcheck doesn't work.

Preformatted mode doesn't work due to removed new line.

Before saving second sample of preformatted text looked good, now is oneliner. Combine that with inability to edit text before saving and you still need opened edit window and explicit command Save.

This is probably done with the new openfate client.

Preview at https://features.opensuse.org/preview

Tom,

I guess that we still need Preview, Save nad Cancle buttons that will allow corrections before submitting text to openFATE.

Even if all functions work without problems, there is no way that software can guess is user happy with text, not only layout and spelling, but what is written. Scrapping all with Revert Changes is far from friendly if one wants to change one word,  after 2-3 minutes typing.

Note: there is a preview button in the richtext editor menu (the 5th button)
