Quick and easy; it ignores it. After some testing, I can sometimes swap the color, but only if I highlight an area that is a single color, and only if I exactly highlight the colored area. If I highlight red + black, ‘default’ does nothing, although ‘blue’ would work fine. If I highlight red + blue, ‘default’ does nothing. It only lets me change it black if I highlight the exact letters of that color.
Bold seems to work inconsistently like this as well, but not when I use ctrl+b.
Something is very funky with editing this update. I’ve included a video of my attempt to do some simple typing on a bolded field - you’ll have to trust me that at no point am I spamming the left key or anything. At a point it jumps back a character, and then it starts adding spaces, but doesn’t move the cursor along with them.
I can reproduce this bug with a very simple experiment. Version: 0.32.11-beta, Desktop.
Start typing. Paste a URL from the clipboard with Ctrl-v. Select paste as link when asked.
Now, if you place the cursor before the link and write, the character insertion order is scrambled. It is incredibly frustrating. With the cursor after the link, or if paste as text is selected, it works fine.
I have been seeing this since the early betas, I am suprised that this did not get more widely noticed until now.
@Romi thanks for adding a recoding. Could you create a new bug report for the jumping cursor and paste a link in this topic? Reading the comments, quite some other users experience this in several ways. @Alejandro, @_Aria and @alvar could you tag onto the bug report once created and create a new bug report if it is not the exact same issue you experience?
PS: there are quite a few topics on jumping cursors, but they are all marked as closed either due to a lack of response of OP or because it was marked as fixed.
Edit: I actually came across a similar topic just now and I noticed @alvar already commented there. Could the others also checkout this topic?
When there is a selected colour for the whole block of text, it is not possible to change certain part of the text to the colour black, because technically there is no black, only a (block) default colour.
HOW TO REPRODUCE IT
Write a few words in a block
Click the block selector and change (text) colour to any colour then default.
Black as a separate colour for users to choose and thus users can manually change colour without dependency to any default. (Despite being a fan of relation, we probably don’t need a relation for colour )
No problem on mobile.
