Convert to plain text w/in expandable topic

Unread post by tinat » Wed Jul 24, 2019 7:11 pm

Hi,
If I right-click on a link within an expandable topic and select convert to plain text, it removes all formatting from within the topic, including any bullets, any spacing, any bold, etc..

Version 7.5.1 Build 4713.
Thanks, Tina

Hi Tina,

I can reproduce this, thanks for reporting it. It appears to be a side-effect of some new table handling in the new version. :? Note that this only affects the current table cell, which is only the entire table in a single-cell table like the ones used normally for drop-down toggles. If you do this in a multi-cell table it will only reset the formatting for the text in the table cell in which you performed the click.

Thank you! Works great now! This will help me with the massive clean up project I'm doing now.
