This is a super low priority bug, I know, but thought I’d share.

Hi @ctrav Chris,

I have noticed this before, but what I have found is that if you are not actually inside of the field it will select it all. I have come across this with Rich Text and Plain Text fields.

Id just recommend that your cursor is within the text field before hitting CMD + A.


For plain text the field must be highlighted blue before using CMD + A, for rich text the cursor must be within the field for that feature to work. Refer to my GIF!

Hope this explains. Not really a bug, just how the CMS works!

Happy Designing,

Ill send it up to the powers at be:

Thanks for reporting this @ctrav and thanks for flagging this @QA_Brandon!

I’ve notified the team and they’ll get this tackled! :webflow_heart:
