Aaargh :( We are all in the same situation ...

But as I use TextEditor in various programs, I put pressure on it :) And I
found a bug : I use a page object and if I insert text (with
MUIA_TextEditor_InsertText) in the TextEditor object that is on the
undisplayed page, the application freezes. This case is raised with several
versions : 15.12, 15.13, 15.14. That's ok with the 15.9.
I'm going to use the official way to report this bug.

It's maybe time to add needed features in classes like TextEditor, even if
it's not supported by the class for AmigaOS 3.x. That's really time
consuming to try keeping the compatibility. We miss software on our systems
and I'm not sure the active developers can still spend time on that. Do you
all think new software appears for 68k targets ? That's sad but I think we
have to set priorities.
I don't know if the problem related to colours is easy to solve with pens
The debate is open.
