    Rich Text Editor Issues


      I am using the Rich Text Editor for a simple CMS page. I have an image field and two paragraphs. The two paragraphs use the Rich Text Editor. However, it seems that the XML file will only update under certain conditions. There seems to be some sort of limit on the length. Basically I am passing the reconstructed XML to PHP which overwrites the XML file.

      I have an Alert popup when the update is completed. However, only sometimes will it popup, and it seems the more text I have the less it does. Is there something I should know about using the Rich Text Editor, or is it just buggy? I was thinking I needed to enable a 'mulitline' feature or set a 'maxchars' but the properties didn't seem to exist.
