Formatting- Quotes Not Coming Out Correctly

That’s odd.
Yeah. I got nothing at this point.

I will say that when I do a regular cut and paste from certain comments, the text I paste has a weird semi-border around it which is barely visible. Like this-


Strangely, I just use the website. Nothing fancy.

Not sure if there is a difference with putting it in quotes-

Strangely, I just use the website. Nothing fancy.

I'll just hop over to legacy view ....

Yep. That's it.

Regular copy and paste causes the issues.

FYI-

Using chrome on windows when this happens.

When you paste it in, does the text include a "COLOR=" tag?
 
It's not a Chrome thing as such. I use Chrome, and when I cut-and-past text into the website editor I don't pick up COLOR tags.

Has this gotten sorted yet?
Sorta?

If I remember to always quote as "plain text" then yes.

See.... if I just copy and paste from someone else, it doesn't show up for people running the legacy scheme.

I'm not running anything fancy either when I'm doing it- just Win10/Chrome.

And it's just cutting and pasting.

Cutting and pasting from someone else's post, you mean; or from somewhere else entirely e.g. a Word document in your computer?

The line directly above this one I cut ctrl-c from your post on my screen and pasted ctrl-v here. In the edit screen it looks fine, let's see what it does when I post it.

EDIT after posting: yep, shows up just like it should, and I'm using the legacy colour scheme.

No, just on my computer. Not using any fancy word processing (ctr-c, ctr-v).

And it appears normal, so long as I am viewing it within MY scheme (the new one, black on white).

The problem seems to be when people who are running legacy try to view it.

(The only way around it is to right click and choose "paste as plain text").
