ConstEdit Issues With Internet Explorer 11

Now that Windows 8.1 with Internet Explorer 11 has become available officially, some glitches are found in the current release of ConstEdit in working with IE11. We are working on a new version of ConstEdit to cope with these issues. These are the issues that have been identified so far :

- Input Methods IME does not work properly for html documents. The main impact is mostly on Asian language characters input. Plain text txt documents editing is not affected. If you do not use any IME or do not know what IME is, then this issue doesn't apply to you.
- Mouse right-click is not working for html documents to bring out the context menu. Again plain text txt documents editing is not affected. The right-click key on the keyboard can be used to get around this issue for the time being. The right-click key is the key at the left of the right-hand-side Ctrl key. Pressing this key brings out the context menu at the current typing position, as if the mouse is right-clicked.
- When editing an html document, pressing PageUp/PageDown keys doesn't perform scroll up/down as expected, but jumps to the top of the first/last page of the document. As a work-around, you may use the mouse wheel or the scroll bar to do scrolling.
- When pasting images from the clipboard, the pasted image may lose the link to the source file. The displayed image is exactly the same as the original image though. The document still works as normal, but the doc size can be much larger than expected. To workaround this issue, after pasting the image, change the Source of the image back to the correct file.

All the above issues are for html documents only. Plain text txt documents are not affected. Please bear with us till the new version becomes available.
