#1646 confirmed Bug

Color for Underline and Strikethrough inconsistent

Reported by: Jon Brooks Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: Core : Styles Version: 3.0
Keywords: Cc: satya_minnekanti@…


The color that Underline and Strikethrough take is inconsistent. Consider these two examples:

  • begin typing text
  • switch Font Color to Red
  • Select 'Strikethrough,' type some more


The strikethrough is red.

  • Type some text
  • Highlight the text, change the color to Red,
  • With the selection still highlighted, select 'Strikethrough'


The strikethrough is black.

Reversing the order in which styles are added in both scenarios produce the opposite result.

Expected behavior should probably be that the strikethrough and underline always take the current color of the text.

This issue is in fact a part of #10675.

Using different tags 's' for strikethrough and span for color-text is a "won't fix" issue but if user decides to use spans for strikethrough then styles should be merged.

Edit: As discussed with @wwalc, we could make spans always wrapping tags like b, s, u in such cases but I can't shake the impression that there might be people that want to have b,u,s tags outside of spans and what then? We would make editor "smarter" than our users and this is newer a good thing. On the other hand such wrapping would really solve some of our styling problems.

We have to make some search for real-life scenarios where tags like b,u,s, sup, sub wrap spans with text. I personally can’t remember any :)
