Span class limitations in text editor
by Jonathan Briggs - Friday, 9 October 2020, 3:28 PM

Hello all,

I've got a project on the go that involves lots of text and so it needs breaking up in-line with various levels of subheads. I'm trying to do this nicely with span classes, and hence I've got one going on to create a dropcap and then a few levels of subheads. It was all progressing fine until out of nowhere in the body of a text component when I added a second span class in the source code and returned to the editor and saved, everything from that second span class and beyond disappeared…

Is there a limitation with this that perhaps I'm not aware of? I'm using AAT 0.10.4; FW 5.7.0

The only work around I've come up with is to copy an already existing bunch of source code that includes the required classes, and then replace the running text, but that's not really very nice at all.

As I say, it worked alright for a while… then didn't.

Thoughts anyone?
