  • I have some problems with the wording "paragraph". Given a bold or somehow formatted text, then "paragraph" is not explictly telling me what will happen when I select it.
  • Does it insert a new paragraph like < p /> ? No, it removes the format and the text is just plain normal text.
  • We should use something like "normal" or "standard" instead as in MS Office or Open Office because this is what users are used to. And it's telling what will happen when I select it.


  • What is this good for? All it does is making me think - "what is address? hmm, it looks like italic, but why do I need that if I've got an Italic button already?"
  • It should be removed as it adds no extra value.
  • The Problem with this one is that it makes the entire paragraph preformatted.
  • What if I just want to have one word preformatted?
    • I can't do that... :-(


-- Styles--

Again, this is not explicitly telling me what happens when I select -- Styles --. It should be called "remove Styles" to make clear what this option is about.

styles does not remove a style, but allows you to write verbatim blocks. But it would be better if the items in styles were placed in the format dropdown, with a separator to distinguish the format types.

I try to find where the 2 dropdowns are defined. theme_advanced_blockformats does the first dropdown. But defining this in the INIT does not work out...

I cleaned up the menus.
