Hi Charlotte,

yes there was a preview function, but it only converted the BBCode to HTML.  Now you can practically see the other way round and switch back on the right side to BBCode the reverse version.
Unfortunately, the preview couldn't give you the final output if you copied formatted text from Word into it. The only thing that helps is writing directly in the editor or using the "Remove format" button as described above.


Best regards,
Steffen

Hi Paresh,

thank you for pointing that out with the list points. I was now able to reproduce the formatting problem with the lists in the Edge Browser.  Despite line breaks, everything above the selected text becomes list items too. The only thing that helps here is to mark the too much changed text again and remove the list with the list button. Here I would rather hope for future updates of Edge, because all other common browsers do this correctly.

With best regards 
Steffen

Dear Steffen,

Thank you for your response. I hope it will be clearer for the other users on the forum. We are currently having some posts that have
statements that are hanging only for them to continue as though it is a new paragraph on the next line. Maybe we might need to sensitize the forum users more.

Regards
Charlotte
