I just upgraded my 11.10 LTS to 12.10 LTS, which introduces the nice new In-Place WYSIWYG editing.
It seems to work quite well, however I just noticed that it causes unexpected (at least for me) effects together with the Icon Rendering Transformation.
Technically, I think I understand why it happens, but I’m not sure if I actually consider it to be good that it does, and wanted to ask if
a) it’s a known behaviour
b) if anything might be done about it (besides turning off In-Place editing), or if I just have to live with it.
If a page contains shortcuts like
(i), it’s translated into an icon / emoji. This happens during rendering, and if now in-place editing is being used, the transformed page is used as a base for editing.
This causes the following “phantom changes” if pages are edited which contain such icon shortcuts:
|5||-(% style=“color:#999999” %)(/) = done/works: put “/” between brackets|
|6||-(!) = warning: put “!” between brackets|
|7||-(x) = not done/problem: put “x” between brackets|
|5||+(% style=“color:#999999” %)image:icon:accept = done/works: put “/” between brackets|
|6||+image:icon:error = warning: put “!” between brackets|
|7||+image:icon:cancel = not done/problem: put “x” between brackets|
The issue probably affects all rendering transformations I assume, such that it integrates the transformation result into the actual page source code.
Bug or feature?
