weird behaviour when hitting enter or delete in lists

I don't know if this is one big bug or several small bugs. All of them occur when editing lists so I filed them all as one bug. I was able to reproduce all of them with the following list example.
  • Item 1
    • Item 1.1
    • Item 1.2
  • Item 2
    • Item 2.1
      • Item 2.1.1
      • Item 2.1.2
    • Item 2.2
  • Item 3
use case 1
  • Point your cursor at the end of list item 1.2
  • Hitting 'enter' three times creates a new level 1 list item instead of a new paragraph
use case 2
  • Point your cursor at the end of list item 1 or 2
  • hitting 'enter' creates a level 1 list item in front of a level 2 item
  • the generated code looks like this in normal edit:
    * Item 2
    * Item 2.1
use case 2 a
  • try to remove the blank list item and point your cursor at the end of list item 1 or 2
  • if you hit 'delete' or 'backspace' level 2 items become level 1 items
use case 3
  • Point your cursor at the end of a level 1 item and hit 'enter' to add a new item to the list
  • hitting 'enter' two or more times creates blank list items instead of new paragraphs
use case 4
  • Point your cursor at the beginning of item 2 or item 3
  • hitting 'backspace' has no effect at all - the list itme shoul become a paragraph instead
use case 5
  • Point your cursor at the beginning of item 1.2 and hit 'tab' mulitiple times
  • hitting 'tab+backspace' once and item 1.2 becomes a level 2 item once agein - fine
  • hitting 'tab+backspace' two times and item 1.2 is not an list item anymore - bad it should become a level 1 item instead
    nearly the same happens if you press the outdent button

heh? What happend here? This new editor is not a text editor (although i clicked edit) and the topic is completly messed up now...

-- TWiki:Main.CarloSchulz - 10 Aug 2007

Yes, i enabled TinyMCEPlugin here, in a desperate attempt to get some testing done; and you have obliged, thanks!


I am no longer supporting the KupuContrib. Please use the TinyMCEPlugin instead.
