Hi guys,


Still not happy that i can choose only the dropdown styles (why the hell not...)

But now i delete all the styles from the editor and add custom styles.

This works in frontend edit but in inline edit i still get all the stuff.

So the screenshot are with the exact same settings but different edito modus.

This is not ok right?

Steps to replicate the issue
delete all template styles in editor. Add custom dropdown style (.intro) Edit inline and choose the style button. Do the same in frontend edit There is a big difference

Hi Joris.

Thank you for your post.

This issue is because inline editing mode is not designed to have the styles dropdown added to it because it does not require the WYSIWYG delivery system. It uses the predefined template which makes it quicker and easier for your users to update. They will only be able to edit content and add pictures so the page will stay looking how it should. Also having the styles dropdown list in inline mode will really slow things down. Each time you try to edit an inline element the editor would need to read the stylesheet to render the styles dropdown list. This would be a big performance hit, especially if there were lots of editable inline elements on the page. The best thing for you to do would be to use the 'Templates' plugin which allows you to add code snippets. You can add your styles to the 'Templates' plugin.

I hope this helps.

Kindest Regards,

Well i do not want to load al the css...
Just a few options are enough.

.intro {


.highlited {


I will disable styles in the inline edito modus but i really really want it there.
