No longer able to add a code box to a post

The code box option seems to have vanished from the tools available in the post editor:

This is true in Chrome and Firefox (current versions of each).

Re: No longer able to add a code box to a post

Hi @jontydkpi and @Vegar ,

We've installed an update that removed the duplicate buttons and added the code button back into the Editor.

Click the three dots to expand the toolbar:

The code button is "</>":

Let me know if you continue to have any issues.

Have a great weekend!

I also miss the code box. It is the styling feature that I use the most in the community forum.

I also notice icons double up on several of the styling features such as bold, italic, photo, film, font and table.

Re: No longer able to add a code box to a post

Hi @jontydkpi@Vegar, and @Sue_Macaluso,

Thanks for pointing these issues out.  The new editor menu is an early-release version of the feature, and there seem to be a few unexpected issues that didn't occur in our testing environment.

The new editor had a code button when testing this update, but as you noted, it is missing now in the live environment. 

The duplicated buttons are a result of the old editor buttons appearing apove the new editor, when they should have been replaced by the new buttons.

I will reach out to our platform provider to get these issues resolved.

Thanks again!

@Jeremy_Latimer

One minor issue is that it currently forces syntax highlighting, but not for Qlik scripts or expressions. If Qlik specific syntax highlighting is not possible, could we have plain text as another highlighting option?

Re: No longer able to add a code box to a post

I second that. I have suggested the use of the Matthew Fryer Qlik syntax project in an earlier post:  Qlik Script syntax highlighter for code samples in the Qlik Community

Re: No longer able to add a code box to a post

Thanks for the feedback. I will check to see if we can add the plaintext and the Qlik scripts.
