Formatting in longtext columns

I noticed that the usual formatting shortcuts (Ctrl+I italics, Ctrl+B bold) don't work when typing something into a WYSIWYG longtext column. Is this intend?

I believe one of the comments cleaner plugins has a markdown converter, so I can look into that.

Ctrl+B, Ctrl+I, and Ctrl+U work for me. Do you see this?

I see it. For some reason the shortcuts won't activate for me.

And are you sure the column has HTML in the Interpret this column as: field

Hmmm, they also work for me in Comments - unsurprisingly.

Have you tried in a fresh install of Portable - if that doesn't work then it could be an external program eating the key sequences, in which case try Windows Safe mode.

Good catch.

FWIW: my MDE layout is Default so that's why it was okay for me, and since I don't use MDE, its different Layouts didn't occur to me as possible cause.
