I'm having issues with an RTE component in Touch UI. In dialog view, whenever I click outside of the text area, the entire field becomes read-only and I am unable to edit anything. The only way to edit the text is to close out of the dialog and go back in. The same thing happens when I click the Source Edit button (meaning I am completely unable to ever edit the HTML source; it becomes read-only as soon as I click the button).

In in-place editing, a similar thing happens where, when I click Source Edit, it just saves the component and closes out of the full-screen view.

Is this a known issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can go through the doc related to the Rich Text Editor here below

Hi,

If you are having issues only on windows 10 laptops.

Then See https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-3/release-notes/known-issues.html#Rich Text Editor

On Windows 10 laptops

in Chrome for AEM 6.2,

The Chrome flag 'Enable Touch Events' under 'chrome://flags/' must be set to 'Disabled' to avoid breaking various functionalities of RTE.

For Firefox

Type about:config in your browser and click the accept button

Search for dom.w3c_touch_events.enabled

Please set it to 0, to disable it.

Hi Mark,

If your laptop has a touch screen enabled. Please disable and give a try.

Interestingly, when I tried accessing it on a different computer, this issue did not exist. Both were Windows 10 PCs (tried on Firefox and Chrome). Very strange, but I guess not a problem anymore as long as I use the other PC.

Try on a fresh install of AEM - I have never seen this issue. I suspect issue is with your environment.
