Editor not enclosing content - SOLVED

I was having a problem where the editor was not enclosing the content and I was either getting content off screen or scroll bars every which way.

I found this solution posted by Peter Thomassen on this page:


  If CKEditor is configured to show a border around the input area, then the iframe body has a class attribute with value "cke_show_borders". (I did not check what's going on if CKEditor is not configured this way.) So, to solve the problem, just add the following lines to your CSS:

body.cke_show_borders {
width: auto;

Maybe, there is a cleaner solution using several CSS files or style elements, thus omitting the unintended application of CSS properties. I did not investigate this because the above approach solves that issue for me.  

It worked for me. Hope it helps someone else.
