BUG in Teaser field
BUG: Formatting tags (FONT, B, P etc) once entered in the teaser field stay there whatever you do later. A font tag or bold tag can be 'overwritten' by a new font tag but both still exists in the field. A paragraph tag (P) can not be overruled by a new tag and you will se 'unexplainable' empty lines before or after your Teaser when you preview or publish. The P tag will stay in the field no matter what you do to erase it.
Until we get better editing for extra fields, we have to Ctrl-A and delete the entire field and start it from scratch.
It's not enough, dear tk. The tags stays in the field. Try it and open the .cty file in Access and look for yourself if you don't believe me. Copy something formatted into the field and you can not get rid of the formatting again. The problem child is the <P> tag which can not be overruled by another tag later. :o)
Try this. Position the cursor inside the "Extras" field. Choose "Select All" from the "Edit" pull-down menu. Then hit the <delete> key.
I'm just dumb and happy, don't have Access, I guess I haven't done anything complicated enough to mess it up yet. I'm sure I eventuallywill.
Well, this isn't the end of the world, and I'm always glad to read tk's loyal and honest answers in this forum.
