Re: 2109: "Invisible Formatting"

As far back as I remember, ⌘B to start and end bold typing is how this works. However, if you click inside an already-bold section and start typing, your new typing will also be bold . Exactly. This should just not happen, or at least, I'd like a way to disable the behavior. It hurts far more often...

Re: 2109: "Invisible Formatting"

I have long wished that type styles operated similarly to capitalization. Not in terms of data storage under the hood—I'm not suggesting that bold letters should be an entirely different unicode sequence—but in terms of... if caps lock isn't enabled, and I'm not holding down shift, my word processor...
