Some Quick Bugs

1) Right-clicking on an article and selecting "Rename" does nothing.

2) Create a new article. Select formatted text (preferably with a large headline) from another source and copy it. Paste it into the article editor. Delete the headline. The font of the second paragraph takes on the attributes of the deleted text.

3) In the article editor, the Bold button doesn't seem to work. Neither does Font Size menu item (as I tried to rememdy #2, neither of these worked.

That's it for now. Overall, it looks pretty mighty. I'll be trying to make it look like my site ( so I can start using it hardcore.

I tried the rename bug, and found that F2 will work right off the bat and put you in edit mode, but through the contextual menu I had to click on the item again to make it editable.

Tim, try the "import web page" on your site as an easy way to get started. It will suck down all the embedded images and adjust the links automatically.

Tim: did you happen to copy over some HTML into CityDesk? If the HTML you copied included, for example, a heading tag like <H1>, then the bold and font size buttons will appear to have no effect. (They are actually working, it's just that the heading style is overriding the bold/font size style).

Yup - that's what the problem was.
