I set my EDIT button to pass a skin parameter to the edit script (in order to avoid natedit skin when using TinyMCE).

However, when I resize the edit window, the skin parameter is lost.

How did you resize the edit window? When I edit using 'none' skin and use the jazzy little resize tab in the bottom-right corner, it works fine form me....


Yes, that's what I did ... I put put skin=pattern, pressed the jazzy-tab to reduce the size, and natedit skin reappeared.

I'll try again tomorrow at work. (The jazzy button isn't installed here, it appears?)

p.s. I'm seeing lots of strange little niggly things with TinyMCE, but they're not easy to reproduce. Yesterday, I made it the default edit button on a web used by some expert users, but almost immediately one guy ended up with a raw file full of html-ish mark-up. No idea how he did it, at all, all.

Jazzy button = draggable corner at the lower right of the textarea, not the previous arrow buttons.

Thanks, I must have an issue with my templates: I was using arrow buttons. I've changed the state to "No action required".

I'd better start reading the doc. At work, everything gets converted back to TML on exiting TinyMCE, but I notice that on this site, the storage format is html. I'm confused.

Later: Maybe this is because I edited with IE7? Now I'm using FF, and I will save this as a new revision. (It works in LitterTray)

2 minutes later: Interesting, with FF, TML comes back. Why oh why? I'll re-open this and wait for advice ...

It was probably just your timing. This server is dynamically updated from Subversion, so sometimes you can see transitory effects, such as non-functional plugins. They will often correct themselves in a few minutes, which is one reason I am always asking people to reproduce problems in LitterTray web.
