CKEditor Step Out of Element Keyboard Shortcut

Inserting a new paragraph outside of a wrapping element

CKEditor provides templating functionality that allows for insertion of HTML snippets. This is very handy, however for complex markup a problem arises where pressing 'Enter' creates a new paragraph but within the wrapping elements.

Searching for how to 'step out of the element' returned nothing helpful and that is the reason why I'm posting a solution.

Keyboard shortcuts to force a new paragraph outside the wrapping element are:

  • Shift+Ctrl+3 – Enables entering content (by adding a new paragraph) before a problematic element.
  • Shift+Ctrl+4 – Enables entering content (by adding a new paragraph) after a problematic element.

On a side note, the above is provided through the built in Magic Line plugin which is supposed to show a red line insert new paragraph widget but that does not always work.

Softeher 'Error occurred. (Error code: 2)' sollution

Protocol error occurred. Error was returned from the destination server.The Softether server by default to run on port 443, if you server also hosts normal https then 443 is already taken and so Softether can't bind to it. When you run `vpncmd` it attempts to connect, find an active port, but of course fails with 'Protocol error occurred. Error was returned from the destination server.' because it's not actually connecting to the vpn server. By default Softether also listens on 992, 1194, and 5555 so the sollution is to modify specify `localhost:5555` when executing the `vpncmnd`.

This is rather difficult to track down especially if you are unfamiliar with the code, I am sharing my procedure in the hopes this saves you time - if you find this helpful drop me a line or follow me on twitter @danielsokolows. This error is caused by unique field constraint on the object, so the first step is to examine the object and locate the API names of all unique fieds.
