I often find myself using an alternative text editor to edit messages, rather then Discourse’s built-in text editor.
Biggest issue I have is the size-restricted column is the middle of the screen. For editing, this is frustrating, as I have to scroll horizontally quite often. For rendering, especially on a desktop, is not the best experience, as there’s a lot of unused white space. Regardless how far you stretch the window, you only get this very slim column in the center of the browser window.
Another issue is the color syntax highlighting. It doesn’t render color syntax consistently. For a
yaml, in our server (2.5.0.beta7), if I add a
- list item, color syntax turns off, but if only
key: value, this works. It seems to work on Discourse. For
PowerShell, this works for us, but on Discourse,
PowerShell syntax doesn’t work.
