hi,

I have noticed recently that if you go to a text widget and select all the text you dont get the text box menu - you have to first click in the text box then highlight the text.

Not a big problem but the fact your selecting all the text should be enough for the widget to realise you need the menu bar.

I'm sure it never used to be like that.

Have not noticed that problem BUT what my site builder is (not) doing is this:
When I highlight an entire sentence or paragraph I cannot change the text to "bold", for instance. I have to do this one section of text at a time as I cannot change it all at once.

Hi Blondie,

We are currently experiencing a bug, this is how it works:
- If you add text to your page and select only the text (don't select any spaces before or after the text), you will be able to format the text using the text toolbar.
- If you add text to your page and select all the text (using 'select-all') or sweep the text with your cursor and include a space at the end of the text, you will find that you are unable to format the text using the text toolbar.

@Marije.....I have found that to only work some of the time.I add text using the text widget and then the edit html on the text bar so far it lets me modify text every time.

to test it you need a text widget and at least 1 other widget - select the other widget then go staright to the text editor and select all the text (or even some - same thing) you should notice (unless its only my sites) that the text menu bar does not show... i'm interested to see if this is just me.

Weird - it's not happening for me when I have a page with two text widgets, each with one line text. Do you have other content on the page? Is the text formatted at all?
