Poor RTF Editor problem

Wednesday, September 28, 2016
The RTF Editon included in SpiraTeam is very poor, I Think.

That font style cannot be edified is representative.

I know, there are many outstanding opensoure RTF Editor using ASP.NET.
We will have to describe requirements fitting our documentation template.
However, because of poor RTF Editor in SpiraTeam, we cannot ocument on description box.

I hope to know when the RTF editor will be enhanced, or the way of another RTF Editor instead of the built-in RTF Editor.

Hi Seokjoo

Actually we use one of the best text editors around CKEDITOR. It replaced an older ASP.NET one we used in the past. It has support for image and table editing as well as being able to paste in a screenshot and have the application handle. I'd suggest taking a look at this article if you're interested - What You See is What You Get, A Tale of Two Editors.

We made a design choice in Spira 5.0 to not include font or color changes since we were not sure if they are being used. Based on feedback, we have added Font and Color back into the editor in v5.1.

Hi Adam.

I had visitted the web site for introduction of CKEditor. I agree it is good RTF editor. And I saw full featured editor when i visited  the web site.
I think it can be better for free documentation within SpiraTeam. Of course there are many options and menus which are not necessary.
If a function to hide unnecessary menus was provide, it will be the best editor for SpiraTeam.
I hope you to consider that this idea will be provided in SpiraTeam V5.1 or sooner.
