@Jen Geard I’m not certain but no functionality that I have seen (perhaps in a module addon). I think the easiest for your example (people using the form) would be custom built by a developer. There are conditional fields which can show if x field is populated, but as far as I know there isn’t the functionality for actions to add additional fields. Sounds like reasonable functionality to have though.
Related, and possibly simpler: is there a way to apply Display rules to an entire Field group? Or even to hide the Field group 'container' until the fields inside it are displayed?
I'm guessing that the user-defined forms module doesn't have a way to manage the relationships between tables that this would require in the back-end(???), so it's not an option. But other form-creator tools do manage this, so I'm hopeful that SilverStripe's worked it out as well. 🙂
Having searched for documentation, this is probably a long shot: when using user defined forms in SS4, is there a way to create repeating fields or groups? Think "Add another company's details to the list of companies I hold" or "Add a row for the details of another person who lives at this address".
A particular use case is "Publishing the annual report on the web reasonably quickly after Audit signs it off".
@clarkepaul Thanks for that. I'll have a look at the TinyMCE options. Sadly, the main workaround is to give content loaders access to particular versions of Dreamweaver so they can copy the HTML over, strip the attribute tags and copy it back, but it's using an expensive sledgehammer to crack a walnut.
Okay that all makes sense, yeah not sure how to deal with that except as you’ve discovered the “Paste as plain text” which will strip out more than you are wanting but it will be a clean start. Ctrl-V provides the same functionality as the non-supported action, I think the button is just using older technology (probably flash) to paste. Otherwise maybe look into options TinyMCE offer as you might find some functionality you can easily add.

> If you want to do further cleanup the Paste plugin provides a whole slew of options: https://www.tinymce.com/docs/plugins/paste/ If you have very specific needs for cleanup look at the paste_postprocess option - it allows you to perform whatever custom cleanup you need. Lastly there is a paid plugin (PowerPaste) that does even more cleanup. You can test it on the homepage of http://www.tinymce.com to see if its algorithm is a better fit for your needs.
Tested on demo: I can add widths to multiple cells, but can't remove them.
So... what's working for you, and am I missing some handy command here? 🙂
