FS#1886 Keep selection when formatting text
CSS, XHTML, JS, Browsers
I don't know if I should file this as a bug or as a feature request, I guess it is more of an enhancement.
We use Firefox 3.6 and IE 8.
Whenever a style is applied to a selection (via toolbar button or Access Key), the selection is lost.
So when we want to apply "bold underlined", we have to do "select > bold > select > underline".
Wouldn't it be possible to keep the previous selection active when a style is applied ?
Currently it assumes you like to type further just after the new inserted syntax.
You assume that it is more useful to keep the selection, because one will add more syntax at the same selection.
I think you will not apply more than one formatting to a selection at regular base.
With that assumption, the current use case is more useful than your proposal.
