Forums - Website Topics - Copying and Pasting text into the review section is bugged out.

The problem is that the background for this site is black, and the text coming from word or open office is white. So any default black text shows up in reviews as blank, until you highlight it with the mouse. Changing the color of your text in word or office, doesn't work. Can somebody fix this please?

Your review for me, as far as I can see, shows up fine. I'm guessing this issue is only showing up on the text edit screen

Check out my lastest games review: Fast RMX and  Snipperclips: Cut it out Together

The review linked above looks good to me too. Paging @TalonMan though.



I'm in agreement with everyone else - I don't see a problem with the review.

Perhaps it's the old editor in the "dark" theme that's causing a problem while copy/pasting from Word - in which case, I'm not going to try to debug now (since we're all going to be moving on to the new editor, soon)...

That's the second posting of the review. I had to type the entire thing over again, instead of pasting it in.

 

@TalonMan

Yeah, it is the dark theme that messes up with it.

Whenever I run into a problem like this, I usually copy the text into Notepad because it doesn't support any formatting, including colours. Then you can just copy the text back from Notepad and it won't include any formatting. Of course if you need the formatting, this is more or less problematic as Notepad really does not support it.

Ok - so yeah, if it's the "dark" theme that's doing it, then I would say just be patient a little longer. The new editor is going to be opened up for everyone soon, and we'll see how it does with this situation. If there's still a problem, then I'll address - I just don't want to invest hours working on fixing the old editor, when it's going away within a week or two...

The new editor is live now - let me know if you run across this problem, still...

Emojis dont' quite work right. There's a weird line at the top of my review in dark theme. Testing other stuff right now.

So - some of that stuff needs to be disabled when doing a review (or game summary, for that matter). Obviously, there is no need for emojis and the "big text" you pushed out, requires some css adjustments (hence, the weird line), which I'm not sure about. Might even just disable - need to think on it...    ...otherwise, sounds like we're past the original problem (copy/paste), right?
