HTML editor link - bug

hi there

I'm using 3.0.2

If I have a new HTML editor window online, add some copy then add a link, and set the link to be an email it works fine, until I go back and change some of copy and update - it changes the link into an incorrect URL...

Can you help please ?

Thanks

that's because there is formatting on the Initial value of the HTMLEditor instance to convert quotes (") to the HTML Entity (&quot;)


to fix the problem, edit the HTML Editor instance, click the lightning bolt next to Initial value and reselect the column from the recordset.
