Visual Editor Functionality Change in 3.1 (3 posts)

    To whom this may concern, and thank you to those that have read this:

    I've noticed a strange change in behavior on how the Visual editor works in the 3.1 version, and I have reinstalled to verify.

    Previously, I could reduce the levels of a listed item by pressing enter on the item. Now, when I press enter on a blank listed item, it does nothing.

    If I want to reduce the level, I must use the icons.

    Not sure if this was ever an expected behavior or not, but I did grow accustomed to it, and I have actively used it since I started using WordPress last year.

    Here's an example:

    <ul>
    
    <li>level 1
    <ul>
    <li>Level 2</li>
    <li>Level 2</li>
    <li></li>
    </ul>

    Normally, I'd be able to press enter again at the last list item, and it would reduce the indent back to level 1. Now it just sits at level 2 and does nothing.

    I usually used backspace to back up a level in a list.... However, I haven't tested it still works lately. More of a suggestion

    (also, any code on here has to go in backtics or the screen can go haywire, as you can see) ;)

    Yeah thanks for the code tip :) I thought I had it correct, but I might have missed a character. Didn't see how to go back and edit the post.

    I tried backspace just now, and it deletes the empty list item and brings you back to the end of the line of the previous list item.
