Users running a non-download version of Vanilla (pulled from github), on branch release/2019.016 or master from the last 2 weeks should upgrade to release/2019.017 or latest master for security reasons. Downloaded official open sources releases are not affected.
Please upgrade here. These earlier versions are no longer being updated and have security issues.

A good text editor?

I am currently on the look out for a quality text editor that includes:

WYSIWYG
Standard formatting options - (Bold, Italic, underlining, font dropdown, font size dropdown, colour dropdown, alignment, image/ink insertion, etc.)
Copy-paste friendly
Streamlined design (preferably minimal and flat)

Quite frankly, I'm having a difficult time finding one that meets my needs. I actually quite enjoy the Advanced Editor, but unfortunately it lacks quite a few features that are essential to my forum.

For the time being I am using CreativeCLEditor which--much to my disappointment--is very finicky when it comes to copy-pasting, and has a few other quirks I dislike.

If anyone has any leads, I'd greatly appreciate the information.

    I want to point out the Advance editor has a lot of options under the hood that are disabled by default. Like Color, highlighting, font selection, indenting, and uploads.

    You can enable them via a plugin hook.

    Search first

    Huh, I never even bothered to check... I didn't realize those features were disabled. Thanks for letting me know, though, I appreciate it!

    Go into the class.editor.plugin.php file in the plugin's directory (should just be called 'editor'). Then search for " public function getAllowedEditorActions" (without quotes) to find the list of enabled/disabled features.

    @sams0knite you are right in that you can find available options there, but you shouldn't change them there! Create a minimum plugin or a custom theme and add following lines:

        public function base_toolbarConfig_handler($sender, $args) {
            $args['actions']['fontfamily'] = true;
        }

    I'm not much of a developer, so excuse my curiosity, but may I please have an explanation as to the reasoning behind that notion? What is the primary motive for creating a separate plugin instead of simply changing the settings?

    Because any time you upgrade Vanilla, the file will be written over, as it is part of the core, and you will have to make the changes again, whereas custom plugins are not over-written.
