    Either way should work. I sometimes put the tags in, then the code. Sometimes the other way. Both seem to work, and occasionally, both fail miserably.

    The entire editor changed with the  forum upgrade, so codes and formatting from pasting is different. We can't go back as that's a large change from this editor, plus it removes the ability to apply patches from the vendor.

    I worked with the vendor on a lot during a week in late summer of 2017 on the editor problems, particularly on code formatting and paste-ability.  I've also heard of some planned upgrades that were put off.  Any idea what the latest plans are to address the editor issues?

    We scheduled some of this, but put it off a bit for some other priorities (other departments). I'll check if we have put this back on the schedule.
