After contacting support about this, they confirmed that this behavior is as-designed. Luckily, there are some options to reach my goal without the need to use another editor.
By switch to ‘Full’ instead of ‘Basic’, the font seems to be a lot closer to the rest of the application. As this results in a very large editor, I switched it to ‘custom’. If you add the ‘Font’ to at least one toolbar, the font will appear normal.
For read-only usages, this is working good as well. In some scenarios I used the HTML Element, as the links are not working properly when using the widget directly.
*It certainly feels like I am overlooking something here. Hopefully, you can help me out!*
No you’re not. Same conclusion here..
if you have all these issues with Rich Text, maybe the HTML Element widget could be the solution,
what do you think?
Let me know,
