Includes advanced Image/Media, File and Link handling, plugin support, and an Administration interface for editor configuration.
Wat I especially appreciate is the possibilty to have different layouts for different (groups of) users. I typically enable nearly all features for power users. For my less skilled users, I have a very simplified subset of functions that appear.
I have to include download links to the original MS Word documentation and this is the only problem I have so far.
1. I like the file browser when linking my document to a download button image but Insert does not work by just clicking on "Inset" at the bottom of the window, first "Insert" to the right has to be clicked and then the bottom one. Took me a while to figure this out when link was not put in.
2. Would love to see a custom text Button include like those I have seen in other Editors.
Since these are both minor problems and this is by far the best editor AND free I can not fault it.
When hitting the Enter key, JCE indents the next paragraph. I would prefer if it did not do this and kept the next paragraph completely left. Holding down the Shift key and then pressing Enter will start a new paragraph in line with the start of the previous row. However, the HTML code produces a BR which is not really what I want.
I am probably old-school and like adding tables to Articles. I have spent much time faffing around with JCE to get table content to be presented the way I like. I have spent time amending / re-highlighting and re-submitting Table Properties, Row Properties and Table Data / Cell Properties. Putting as much of the formatting into the Table Data / Cell Property as possible appears to be the best solution.
Specifically, I have had difficulty with the way content is shown in a table added to the Featured Article of the Home Page / Start of a website. This is a table with two columns and a couple of rows. I want to add a couple of paragraphs of text into both columns (two large TDs) The cell formatting is Valign top and Align left. In the left-hand column (TD), the text sits nicely aligned left and starts right at the top but in the second column the test starts about a third of the way down (but aligned left). Changing Properties (table, row or TD) has not changed this. Nor has amending the HTML code manually, as JCE amends it again when you press Save. I know that you can unclick this automatic JCE HTML code function. I have done this but no difference was seen to the TD or Cell in question with regards to the table.
I like adding tables and being able to include numerous paragraphs of text within them but I have not made progress here.
