     While I am planning to adjust paragraphs there is no "justify" in Text Editor Toolbar. Would you please help and direct me in this issue. Warm regards

      Hi,

       

      we apologize for the inconvenience.

       

      The reason that the justify button cannot be seen on your end may be related to your browser zoom settings.

       

      Please set the zoom settings to 100% and let us know should the problem persist.

       

      Thank you for your patience and understanding.

      Hi,

      Please note there is an empty text box on the last page of your site, on top of the text box you are trying to edit.

      Please click on the text, then delete the text box. Re-click on the text - you will now be able to edit it.

      Should you have any further questions, don't hesitate to contact us again!

      When i double click on the post i want to edit the window appears "You have entered too much text to this box", which is true...but it has been a while since i created that post and it was no problem before. I have no problem editing other post on other pages..

      Do you still think it is because i don't have the latest Firefox?

    I am no longer able to edit my text in the sites under development. I see many have had or are currently experiencing the same issues but the tech's are saying when they enter the site under construction they are not able to find the same problem. So if many are having a problems but the techs are not what can the average site builder do to solve this problem on their system?

      Hi,

       

      There can be different reports of different issues from users here on this forum related to text, but necessarily all the same issues.

       

      Which of all of your sites are you referring to?

      I see that you are currently using Firefox version 18 to edit your site.

      There is Firefox version 28 available now for updating, can you please update your browser, delete the cache, try again and let us know where? Which page? Which text box all of them? and which website? 

       

      This way we can check properly and get back to you!

      Hi Kathy,

      I checked your Editor, however, I wasn't able to recreate the issue. I could edit text without experiencing any difficulties (see screenshot below).

      While browsing on the web, your computer and browser stores various information. This build up of information can sometimes cause conflict.

      Please clear your browser's cache. You can find step by step instructions here.
      Also, try using a different browser to see if there is any difference.

       

      If the issue persists, please let us know.

      Best,

    Hello. I have just set up a website. Yesterday I was quite happily editing text boxes. Now when I click on edit nothing happens - I can't change text. I also tried creating a new text box but I cannot edit the content of this either.

      Hello,

      I've checked your site and I was unable to recreate the issue as you can see in the attached screenshot.

       

      The fact that I'm unable to recreate the issue leads me to believe that what you're experiencing is a localized issue that is a result of a misconfiguration on your computer's end. 

      While browsing on the web, your computer and browser stores various information. This build up of information can sometimes cause conflict. This conflict may be the cause of this issue. 

      Please clear your browser's cache. You can find step by step instructions here.

    WIX is acting like this 'edit text' in NOT a problem, but clearly it is as so many cannot edit a text box.  I cannot even edit when I add a new text box! incompetent site!

    Hi there!

    I am trying to add a information from Word and Adobe Reader by cutting and pasting to a text box on my website. But it looses ALL spacing and sentences when copying over. When i paste, it just reforms it to one HUGE sentence, its very frustrating. This also happens in the body of the blog section when adding a blog post. This is a bug as it never used to happen. AND the spell check is no longer in the blog body section. there is a spell check that comes up in the title and image description, but not the blog, another bug.

    How can i add text content to my website from Word etc without changing its layout???

      Hi,

      Unfortunately, pasting formatted text adds hidden symbols, that interfere with the HTML code of the website. Therefore, the system automatically removes all formatting from the text.
       
      Our developers are aware that the ability to use external text editors and paste the text "as is" is highly requested, and are working on adding this feature.
       
      In the meantime, please use the editor's internal text formatting tools.
       
      If you have any further questions, please let us know.
       
      Kind regards, 
      Niv, Wix Support
