Inline text style popup not appearing

Hi

I’m experiencing a bug with the popup inline style formatting menu for text.

The popup menu appears fine on text elements when I’m scrolled to the top of the page, but when I scroll down the page, the menu remains in the same fixed position, and does not scroll up with the paragraph. And when I edit a text element that is below the fold, no popup menu appears at all! This is really impacting on the use of the app, as I can’t add links or inline styles to most text elements on the page.

I’ve tested on Mac with Chrome and Safari and both have the same issue.

Scrolled to top – popup menu appears fine

Scrolled partially down the page – menu appears fixed to original position of paragraph element

Text element further down the page – menu does not appear at all

Thanks

I’m not quite sure what you’re going for here. Are we talking about the ‘directions’ menu? I’m not seeing a pop-up menu

No, the popup that appears above a word when you highlight text to add inline styles (e.g. bold/italic/link/span etc).

@jason_ascender, I see your issue. That looks like a big.

@PixelGeek @Brando can you guys take a look at this?

I’ve been experiencing this problem quite a lot lately. I’ve found that what the problem is, is that the popup tex styling window that appears when you highlight a word DOES NOT STAY in line with the text but appears lower and lower the farther the highlighted word appears down the page.

So, for example, a word highlighted in the first paragraph? No problem, the style popup is right there. After a few paragraphs however, the popup will be so low that it is no longer visible within the browser frame.

I’ve had to work around this by physically moving the paragraph I want to change up to the top of the page, making the style change on the highlighted span, and then physically moving it back down to the correct position. A real pain. This appears to be something you guys could easily fix. Can we please get this problem cleared up?

Thanks!!!

The team is working on this for sure, but I don’t have a timeline on when a fix will be issued.

Someone from the team will post here as soon as we know more.
