Known issues when using Plone in Internet Explorer 8 or 9
Due to changes in the latest two versions of Internet Explorer (8 and 9) it is now necessary to follow the instructions below when completing the following tasks; whilst editing a page using the default editor. All other browsers (including Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera) should work as normal.
When inserting images into a page the image is automatically inserted at the top of the page and not where selected.
When positioning your cursor at the point where you wish an image to be displayed you need to select/highlight some content first. The easiest method is to position your cursor at the beginning of a paragraph and press the space bar once. Then select/highlight this space by holding down the left mouse button and dragging the mouse to the left (or hold down the shift key and press the left cursor key).
It is not possible to preview the website you're linking to (within Plone) when adding external links. When the preview button is clicked Internet Explorer will display a security warning message, if you answer yes or no to this question the website will not display.
After clicking the preview button select the no button in the security warning message. The website will not display but you can follow the link 'Open this content in a new window' to preview the website you're linking to in a new window.
When editing tables there is no option to add/remove rows or columns.
This is the same workaround as used for inserting images. Before you click the 'Insert table' button you need to position your cursor within a desired table cell, then select/highlight the space within the cell by holding down the left mouse button and dragging the mouse to the left (or hold down the shift key and press the left cursor key).
If you attempt to apply a paragraph style by positioning your cursor at the beginning of a paragraph (and not by highlighting the whole paragraph) then the first paragraph on the page will adopt the paragraph style and not where selected.
When applying paragraph styles highlight at least one word within the paragraph you wish to style
