Subject Re: Delete text operation and para terminators
Date Sun, 05 Oct 2014 08:16:37 GMT
Some more research shows that the non-replacement is normal. The paragraph is then supposed
to be merged, but that failed because there was a terminator span. The terminator span got
generated due to a change I made in ensureTerminatorAfterReplace(). Of course, reverting my
change causes a runtime error in splitting paragraphs… :-(

I’ve taken to handling terminator spans as special cases when necessary. I might do that
here as well…

The whole concept that paragraph terminators are not “real” content is convoluted to start
with. Couldn’t this have been designed a bit better?

I tracked the problem down to TextFlowEdit.deleteRangeInternal(). I think the terminator is
regenerating itself. The thing is, I’m not sure what I changed about the code that’s making
this happen.

How is the merge with the next paragraph supposed to happen?
