    I can select the text that I want to edit, but the worst thing is that it changes when it is selected. The font completely reverts to a basic font, and I just kept working and just filled the box with what I wanted because I thought I could just change the font back to where it was later. Unfortunately, I am unable to change the font, the font size, the font color, or anything pertaining to the editing of the text itself. This is really frustrating because the editing on Wix used to be easy and simple. I have a business to run, and I would like for this to be resolved as soon as possible.

    I have the following websites:

      I tried that. It did not work. I can't edit anything without losing the format. I am using Safari, and I have emptied the caches continuously. I just want to edit the text on my websites, and it won't let me on either of them. I want to change the "DM" and 'digital marketing" text to something different, and I can select the text boxes but it will not let me change the formats. If I try to change the text, it changes to "Body M" and will not let me change it back to what I want. It used to be the easiest thing to do on Wix, so if the process has been changed at all then it needs to go back because something isn't working. It doesn't matter where on the website you try to format text; it just won't work for either of my websites. 

       

      Click the Text Box

      Edit the Text

      Change Format of Text = Major Issue

      you're using an outdated Safari version. Please update your browser and the problem should resolve itself

      I have OS Mavericks. My Safari is definitely not out of date. I guess we need another solution.

      Hi,

       

      We apologize for the inconvenience.

       

      I've tested your site on a number of updated browsers and computers, I was unable to recreate the issue on either of them.

       

      Please test this on other updated browsers in order to compare the results on your end. Let us know how it went, which browsers and exact versions you've tested.

      I don't get it because it is really easy to test. Select a text box for editing and watch the text change to "Body L" without selecting that format then try to change it to "Heading XL." It does not change at all, or allow any type of editing. I put in a great deal of work on my websites before the change on Wix, and now it is almost impossible to do anything or change anything that is already there. If you guys can't figure out your own system, then I guess I will just go elsewhere because support shouldn't be this difficult.

     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.

      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!
