When Following a Chapter Edit, the WYSIWYG/TINYMCE Editor appears below the raw text editor field:


-- TWiki:Main/BryanEllsaesser - 12 Feb 2008

Not a big deal, but ultimately confusing to the basic users. Not sure how Chapter Editing follows a path into eventual WYSIWYG editing?

-- TWiki:Main.BryanEllsaesser - 12 Feb 2008

This has a bigger ramification, at least on my installation (4.2.0). If I Save the topic with the WYSIWYG open, it deletes the entire document. If I switch to raw edit mode before saving, all is well. Obviously, a major problem.

Is there any way to fix this and get both EditChapterPlugin and WYSIWYG editor working? For now I changed the edit link and force TWiki to load the raw edit mode, but that's no final solution because a lot of users insist on using the WYSIWYG editor.
