    We´ve found an issue with the document manager. Using IE8 (and FireFox):
    • add some text and wrap it with span-tags
    • click documentmanager and select a document
    • The Link Text and textbox isn´t visible

    If you remove the span tags link Text is visible.

    You can reproduce at::

    I too can confirm we are experiencing this problem, but on the link manager dialog.

    With an existing link where the link text contans a span, if you right click the link and view properties, the "Link Text" setting is not visible.

    EDIT: actually I suspect this might be by design, and happens when the link contains any html content... which cannot be edited effectively in a one line textbox. In this case you are probably better off using the editor to edit the link text (since it is intended for editing html)

    Hi guys,

    Yes, exactly this feature is by design. In other case we should load HTML or encoded tag symbols inside the Link Text textbox which could be cumbersome for some users.
