Midas - tables are extremely difficult to remove


(Core :: DOM: Editor, defect)

Not set

Using as a basis. 

Having inserted a table deleting it again is not easy. Basically you have to
create enough space around it to do a selection that includes the table in
question. Then pressing the Delete key removes the table.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

This bug is still being reported by many end users of FCKeditor. People can't select tables, and therefore cannot delete, move or copy them.

This same 'bug' is affecting my wysiwyg-editor too. Deleting (and dragging & dropping) of tables is difficult or impossible.

There should be a way to have an edit-focus on the table separately from the cells. Also this edit-focus should be controllable from javascript.
