Description

Dear CKEditor Team,

It's marvelous how an editor with as much feature as CKEditor has can load so amazingly fast, great work!

Just to add my 2 cents to make the editor look even nicer, I'd suggest that to replace the dropdowns of Format, Font, Size, Styles to images like the rest of the buttons on the toolbar. Much like the editor used for Gmail if you want a live example of what I'm saying.

Here are my reasons,

  1. Everything will look consistent and nicer. I personally think the Gmail editor using a single image, for example, for the fonts button make it look a lot better.
  1. So you don't have to have a label next to the dropdown. Right now, you have the word "Font" next to the fonts dropdown, etc. Not only this take up valuable space on the toolbar, it can also save you energy on your multi-language support, so you don't have to translate the word "Font" into the various other languages, everything will look consistent no matter which language because they are all image buttons.

I love this editor so much that I just want to give my 2 cents!

Thank you,

Ray Fan.

What different the Style/Format/Font combo of CKEditor from other RTE like e.g. Gmail editor is it's ability to detect the current style under selection, this make combo an wonderful component been used here.

Yes, somehow it's reasonable, and we have a new skin 'Kama' under design and will appear in trunk very soon, in this skin a new combo presentation of "inline label" is introduced to conquer this problem, check this screencast if you're interested.
