An annoyance more than a show stopper.

Several of my users have pointed out that once you have hit enter inside a table cell the TMCE adds html paragraph tags round the text making the text in the cell jump down. You more or less have to pickaxe your way out of that.

The only work around I have found it to change the text to heading 1 and then back to normal.

Some table text where I did not hit enter

Some text where I hit enter before the text and tried to delete it again

Some text where I hit enter

in the middle to get two lines of text

Some text where I hit
shift enter to get a BR instead

I wonder what we can do to make the editing experience a bit better. Not a release blocker.

Yeah, it's a PITA. Note that the behviour is different on different browsers; it's all to do with the way MIDAS is implemented, I think.
