Not sure how you got there without having an editor actually open on that page. But reloading the page should have worked. That property is only stored in the browser page itself.

I was in my group & pushed the crayon at the top & that’s all.  I OK’d the error message & tried again & it persisted .  finally I dispatched fbi tab & started over after I screen-scraped the error for posterity.

Are you sure that you did not have the editor open on a comment somewhere on that page? You can only have the RTE open in one spot at a time, comment, thought, etc.

Actually I can do that & am doing that now.  I have an editor in another tab open to add an item. Just the opposite of when I discovered the error message.  Only one tab only one browser pushed the crayon to add an item – that’’s all. But no biggie – just weird.
Okay. If you can repo it reliably, let me know.

apparently this can happen.  note that i did not have any other tabs open and were in firefox.   I was examining group patty and should not even have had write prividledges there because that was suppose to be her personal group.

and yes it is reproducable … happens every time i click the pen that i should not have in patty’s private group.

& … as I said in another post yesterday, you can simply double-click the crayon in the header to make a post & it will happen. pondering

now that i cannot reproduce. 
seth of group seth 2016-02-20 10:34:19 [item 20043#46198]
woopse … yest i can.    i see what happend there.  there is no such thing, that i know about, that is a double click on a tool here.    what you seem to be describing is two clicks on the same command … the first opens an editor, and the second says you already have one open.   and yes that is reproducable, happens every time your make two rapid clicks on the pen.

the problen i reported above was quite different … there i am dealing with just a simple one click.
MR of group mark 2016-02-20 10:48:21 [item 20043#46199]
A mighty fine distinction between a double-click & two rapid clicks indeed ! thumbs upsmug On my old Kindle I sometimes have to tap the screen several times to get it’s attention, but have never run into the problem there; mostly because I rarely use it for fbi2½blush
 
seth of group seth 2016-02-20 10:51:19 [item 20043#46200]
well i can sympathize with that … try a iPhone in voice over mode … click or double click is wierd … or even a normal mode with stickey fingers …. nevertheless the system is working quite properly … what you reported is not a bug.
MR of group mark 2016-02-20 10:55:52 [item 20043#46201]
Yep, I think I said yesterday I don’t care anymore . Let real customers eat the confusion.smug
seth of group seth 2016-02-20 10:59:57 [item 20043#46202]
well in this case it is real customers who always need to deal with how to run their devises.  it has nothing to do with whether you care or do not, or what you said yesterday … that connection is in your mind only.
MR of group mark 2016-02-20 11:05:04 [item 20043#46203]
until there is someone else to actually use the thingy laughinglaughinglaughing
seth of group seth 2016-02-20 11:16:04 [item 20043#46207]
not at all … people have shakey hands all the time … nothing will change about that when they use thinking domains.   i know you are keen on maintaing your point which i oblierated  … but it would also be kewl if you recognized it for what it really was.  or not … who cares. 
MR of group mark 2016-02-20 11:20:05 [item 20043#46208]
I don’t … not enough to continue your already-always otherness rant any more.
seth of group seth 2016-02-20 11:32:14 [item 20043#46210]
Has nothing to do with my otherness ... Has to do with your subjective beliefs conflicting with what is happening.

sent from iPad
You emphasize differences between what I say & your own beliefs so often that the otherness of the moment is hard to escape; perhaps being benign less aggressiveness of the ego’s otherness not yet measuring up to a formal rwg.

According to your profile, seth is logged into group patty. Is it not showing bold in your groups list?

The error message is happening because her boobs (I mean her posts) are malformed because they were created at an earlier transitional time. I will fix it so that it will still work on her boobs.  
seth of group seth 2016-02-20 17:32:51 [item 20043#46222]
hmmm … that explains why the pen appears in her group for me.

but i was not trying to edit one of her thourhts … malformed as they are … i want trying to give her a new boob.  so, me thinks, still is a bug
nathan of group nathan 2016-02-20 17:35:33 [item 20043#46223]
Yes. I said it was a problem, because of how the thoughts and classes are layed out. The editor can’t find the right place to stick the RTE box between her boobs. Not so much a bug as that the classes here are wrong. But I can make the editor smarter too.
seth of group seth 2016-02-20 17:40:25 [item 20043#46224]
well don’t bother cleaning her up … i can much easier just delete her whole universe.   thing is how do i deltete here login personality … i want to start fresh with her.
nathan of group nathan 2016-02-20 17:43:31 [item 20043#46225]
I have a utility for that, runs in our PHP console. And I just updated it to even delete comments and thoughts and tags by others related to her … by finding and cleaning flotsam afterward.

I just have to run it on her ID when you are ready, and when I have finished using her as a test case for the editor to do something intelligent even when it cant find a suitable boob to latch onto.
kewl ,  delete her whevever.
