Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I wanted to try a replacement for the default terrible WYSIWYG editor that came with Jive software so tried Xinha Here as well as Writer Area (FCKEditor based). I don't know if it Xinha messing up or the addon, but aftering saving and returning back to the native editor, I see a whole lot of blank lines and trailing spaces. In fact, even if I don't make any changes, it messes things up. E.g.,
- start with the jive's native editor.
- switch to html
- start Xinha here.
- Apply (no changes)
- OK to close Xinha here.
- Switch back to jive's native editor
- The formatting is messed up.
I then tried Write Area and it worked great, no problem with the formatting.
To the developer, I liked the "Bottom Bar" option of Xinha here (which Writer Area didn't offer), but the pane should really be made local to the current tab (e.g., try FireBug). Once opened, the Xinha here pane shows up in all the open tabs in that window, that is just so obstructing.
