My wordpress 4.9 editor for posts has two editor views
I am mostly using the text view and often adding shortcuts. Sometimes I directly add HTML5 code, e.g. for tables. However, these following keys stop responding when I do so and surrounded by HTML tags:
- left arrow
- right arrow
- home keys (go to line start)
- end key (to to line end)
Backspace sometimes works correctly, but sometimes jumps to an unexpected place in the line to erase a character.
To navigate within a line I have to first move up or down, and then reenter the line using the mouse to select position.
- Is this behavior normal? Is there some logic behind it I don't understand?
- Although my editor doesn't have an HTML view, I have seen references to an HTML view, e.g. on this wordpress support page. Can I somehow enable this view option and would it solve my problem?
