locked New problems with edit function in test version on web

Jennifer Christian

I sent a message to my WFD group today (#13860) that I had composed in Outlook with formatting -- a bulleted list in the middle of the posting. 
When it arrived in my approval queue on Groups io, the bullets had been removed.  So I tried to use the editing function to put them in again.  First, I selected the bullets option.  What appeared was a NUMBERED list with a hollow bullet right next each number.  So, I decided, OK I'll go with a numbered list.  Then what showed up was a duplicate number beside each item (11,22,33 etc.).  So I went down the list and removed the duplicate digits.  One of them was UNremovable -- but the other wasn't.

And now that that message has posted, I see that the first line of the message is preceded by a bullet.

Yesterday, when I sent a different message to the same group, it arrived at Groups.io with one line huge -- in 24 point font. 

I am very grateful that the browser allows me to undo undo undo when my editing on Groups.io site screws up a message worse than when it arrived. 

I would love it if you could add copy / paste format buttons. 

Also, when composing a message, I wish there were a save button. Oh, now I remember, you save them automatically as drafts.  How is a user supposed to know that?

I've had severe editing problems recently also, and not just in the test version. Font sizes in a wiki page reverted to humongous even after I edited them by hand and was shown the correct-sized font before the save. Messages going into the approval queue lose all formatting, as far as I can see. I'd given up and resorted to re-formatting them by hand, to the extent possible. I don't remember the details. From what I recall, font sizes go whacko, bullet points are lost, and spacing goes crazy.

Messages are the sole opinion of the author. 

It's dumb to buy smart water.
