Sitebuilder 2.253 - 9th January 2012 - Release notes

Sitebuilder 2.253 was released on 9th January 2012. Highlights from this release include:

Editor improvements including improved pasting from Microsoft Word

We have made some improvements to the JScript editor, including an upgrade to the TinyMCE open-source software it runs on to the latest version, 3.4.7.

This adds two new buttons on the toolbar next to the paste button, paste as text   and paste from word  .

The Paste as Text button ensures that formatting is stripped when pasting from other sources (including Microsoft Word) into the Sitebuilder editor, to ensure that pages are as readable and accessible as possible. The Paste from Word allows a controlled environment for pasting content from Microsoft Word, and will attempt to retain any formatting.

Full week view on Sitebuilder calendars

In response to feedback from customers, we have added "Week" as a possible view for Calendar pages, showing Monday-Sunday.
