Chrome Differences.
« on: 22 May 2016, 12:28:44 AM »
For many years I used Firefox as my browser. After an initial period learning the idiosyncracies of the DSFUK platform I had no problems using this forum via Firefox.


Recently I changed to Chrome as an experiment because Firefox slowly became a memory hog and slowed my computer. A few annoying problems appeared.


The first, and most obvious, is that an extra carriage return appears on posts. I have left this one un-amended as an example; usually I simply use 'preview' to check and amend.


The next occurs with copy-and-paste. This is copied from another topic as an example:


As others have said

Once pasted all following text appears with changed font and size and the post appears with the formatting info.

I have to then go into the HTML version to remove all that for correct posting. This is a repeat, corrected:

As others have said
 
Once pasted all following text appears with changed font and size and the post appears with the formatting info.
 
Thoughts?
Cheers, Alan, T2, Australia.

I use Firefox on my PC and sometimes get the blips Alan is complaining about.  Usually the tiny text problem happens when I copy from either someone else's email or another website, it's because the formatting tags are copied alongside the text.  I also sometimes get the double line spacing in Firefox.  I use Safari when browsing on my iPad and sometimes, but not always, get the double line spacing.  I rarely get the tiny text problem on Safari, but that's because I rarely copy and paste from elsewhere with Safari as I find it difficult to do on the iPad.  I'm not entirely sure why these things happen, whether it's the platform the forum is built on, or the browser involved.

We can ask Mike, but I am completely at a loss.

I get the same issues occasionally, but not always. Using Safari on OSX (but I believe I used to get them running Chrome on my Windows 7 machine as well). Often when I try to copy and paste from within my own poste (e.g. to move a paragraph so it comes earlier in the txt) it will change the font size for the copied text! Bit of a pain because the default text size appears to be 9, and the only font sizes you can select while editing are either 8 or 10, so there's no way to match it back once it changes! But I've always figured it's just one of those little techno idiosyncrasies...

Well this is all very odd...

The tiny text has specific inline CSS styling span style="font-family: verdana;" class="bbc_font" and span style="font-size: 3px;" class="bbc_size" which looks very much to be added specifically to deter copy-paste (since the classes presumably override the small font size).

Do you mind me asking where the copied text was coming from so I can look at the original source code. I'm not sure if BBC relates to 'bulletin board code' the BBC or something else!

Hmmmm.... curiouser and curioser...

Just copy-pasted from Chrome into the 'Reply' box in FF and the bbc styles were (unevely) added which were definitely NOT in the original text. I don't get this copy-pasting from FF to FF so it *could* be an oddity with the Chrome clipboard.

I have to say this is not something I have spotted as since the beginning I have been using the 'Quick reply' box at the bottom of the page which doesn't have the Rich Text Editor. If I need to add styles I just modify my own post and add them with the RTE then.

I'll look into it and see if it is a common issue with a fix.
