Why the editor functionality was changed?

I noticed that couple of days ago, the Insert link functionality is broken. Then I started to notice that there are other broken functionality as well:

  • Links
  • Quotes
  • Code

Basically all previous shortcuts are gone.

Besides that, if you select a text and add a link on that text, the text will be removed. If you press ctrl+k to insert a link, the browser (chrome, at least) will focus address bar, so you will need to move the mouse, click on the URL field, then add the url.

Please restore the previous functionality…

The composer is currently being (completely) rewritten by the Discourse Team, there still are some bugs but it will be fixed soon
