New Editor Sidebar

We're having severe issues with the sidebar in the new editor when there is 3 or more items in a repeater....especially with the 'Insert' tab. It seems to be related to when the sidebar has got taller than the screen limits and has to scroll up and down. The Insert dropdown refuses to appear in the correct place when clicked for the 2nd block onwards, eventually appearing off screen when you get down to the 3rd block.

Is anyone else having problems with this?

This is happening in all the major browsers I've tested so far, tested in IE7, IE8, Firefox 4, Opera 11 and Chrome 12

Hi ChilliMint, I've just made a slight tweak to your template so your repeater is around the entire row instead of the table cells for this template. I didn't override your template, but instead uploaded a new template called "Competition - Single (updated)". Because this is for a single item in the repeater item I'm hoping this format will be fine. I've switched your 'Taste' campaign over to use the template to test and it's working well.

I've had to make this change because we currently have an issue with three table cells within a repeater. We're working a on a fix for this but in the meantime you'll be able to use this template. If you do have any further issues with this template please get in touch with support. And thanks for your help while we work through these little issues.

Thanks for getting back to me on this.

Yes Ben I have already tried this approach with the repeater tags outside the <tr> 's with no luck, so it looks like we'll have to wait for the bugs to be ironed out.

Many of our templates were originally set up to get round the constraints of the old editor, so thats why you will see repeaters around <td>'s (this is how we made an editable row of three blocks). I'm currently going through all our templates and updating them to take advantage of the new features.

Thanks for the info.

Just to add to this thread, currently the sidebar scroller is very thin and hard to see. Its also appearing over the top of the sidebar at the moment (which seems to be new this morning). Is there any chance that the scrollbar could be made a bit wider so its easier to spot for the clients?
