Strange issues when editing Comments and Annotations fields

Hi guys..

I'm a big fan of Comments/Annotations text fields, 'cause there I can add more detailed info about books and comics I own.. but I always have a lot of strange issues and behavior when editing these fields..

Generally issues like text not being formatted at all or formatted in a different way respect to what I chose; often if I select part of the text and apply a style, it happens that the text itslef moves up or down the point where it was!

So, it's difficult for me to exactly explain in English what happens, but in general I would like to ask if you have similar or any other issues like text not showing the format you chose or text moved without any apparent reason or Bold not applied and so on..

thanks a lot guys!
see you soon!

hehe so I'm not the only one that noticed the comment field having a mind of its own. I haven't seen text move yet and I try to avoid using any of the toolbar buttons in these fields but I have a hard time trying to keep the content from getting changed html wise...for some reason there's always weird apple spans and font tags appearing even though I never ever put them there. In general this makes it difficult to give the content the formatting you would like to see...

Have you ever noticed that if you paste in html yourself in the html tab, and then view the content in an e-reader, the html code often shows as text? only when you reopen the metadata for that book and toggle the comment field between text/html again will it show correctly in an e-Reader...or COPS

I use custom comments quite a lot, I don't use the built in comments because a) metadata downloading can write to the column b) I cant edit them from the spread sheet.

At once stage I was opening some text snippets in notepad++ and then coffee/pasta them into a custom comments column - in that context I was getting some glitches. So I examined what I was really trying to do - which resulted in replacing that comments column with a names, a timestamp and a duration column - a bit more work but also a lot more informative.

I don't do anything too fancy - but the basic formatting works for me, and it appears as I would expect to appear in epub book jackets - which I put at the back of the book via a hacked version of Modify. I don't worry about what the HTML looks like, I'm happy so long as what I get is what I want.

My only wish is to see some of the buttons accessible from the context menu, and a keyboard shortcut to flip between normal and html views.

All I can suggest is to try a custom comments column - I don't think it would be be any different as I think its the same code - but you never know...

That's the problem... The old coffee/pasta as opposed to the normal copy/paste!
