Text Formatting Toolbar 0.1.4.9Toolbar for formatting text in BBcode, HTML or Wiki code
The 0.1.4 is the next major release of the Text Formatting Toolbar. It has some great new features. One is the Composer that allows you to create and save a post in an easy to use interface. The post can then be pasted into a text box on a web page by right-clicking and using the Composed Posts sub menu. There is also a new feature that allows for the creation of custom buttons so you can use formatting tags that maybe the unique to the forums you use.
- Updated some of the locales

There are several things that I am looking for feed back on, such as the hot keys/key short cuts. There is a post on the forum about this.
Features that missed out
In future released the features that I want to add are.
- Rich-text editing for any textarea on any web page (this all so effects sites that use an editable HTML frame instead of a text box).
- An editable preview pane in the Composer window.
- Converting between formats
- Auto hiding the toolbar when disabled or based on user defined URL matching.
- Easy way of importing/exporting the composed posts.
