#12714 closed Bug (invalid)

Insert Image/Link dialogs are overcomplicated.

Take a look at TinyMCE 4 or Redactor: they have pretty dialogs for image/link insertions.

CKEditor uses monstrous dialogs.

Have you by any chance seen image2 dialog Isn't such simplification enough? If not, you can always remove fields you don't like from dialogs.

I don't think such tickets are useful as this is basically a complaint that you don't like something and would like to have it changed. Furthermore there, as mentioned above, you can always thus I will close it as invalid.

@danya_postfactum dialogs are going to be redesigned in CKEditor 5 but definitely not in CKEditor 4. As @Reinmar has written in #9988, could you perhaps visit and give your ideas there? If I may ask, don't just limit yourself to complaints that something doesn't work as you would expect it. Instead please tell us what exactly is wrong and how would you see it fixed or re-implemented. Also if you have any idea how to fix something, please share it there as well.

Yes, I saw image2, it's looks good.

First of all, I wanted to know opinions of dev team. Some time ago, when I was choosing between TinyMCE and CKEditor, the last one seemed to be better. Now, TinyMCE is upgraded and it looks quite better (but has some issues). So, I wanted to ensure CKSource is going to go ahead. CKE5 is probably what I wanted to hear :) .

Thanks for the answer.

Thanks, it is nice to hear that you like it.

Please note that CKE5 is currently on the drawing board so it will be a while before we introduce it.
Dialog system was introduced long long time ago and yes, some dialogs may be considered old, too big, or overwhelmed with fields. We haven't decided to change it in CKEditor 4 because it works and works well. What is more, people are still using HTML4 so we needed to provide new features as well as provide backward compatibility. Please note that If field is not required is can be always be removed from dialog to make it smaller. This is how you can reduce dialog size in CKE 4.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
