Plain text missing in TinyMCE Insert Image dialog


The TinyMCE Insert Image dialog displays all button/tab/header texts as keywords instead of plain/translated text, like {#advimage_dlg.tab_general}, {#advimage_dlg.tab_appearance} and {#insert} {#cancel}. This only occurs in the Insert Image dialog, not in other TinyMCE dialogs.

The form used is at http://(

There is a folder at /util/editor/tinymce/plugins/advimage/lang/ that contains an en_dlg.js file with the entries that should be translated.
There are also xml lang files under my root/lang/ folder that contains the nodeset <tinymce><advanced><advimage_dlg>(translations for tabs/buttons)</advimage_dlg></advanced></tinymce>.

Has anyone seen this before?

I had this issue today when working with one of our customers. The problem was that the tinyMCE.en.lang.xml (and for the other languages as well)had been modified (for some unknown reason) with some strange whitespaces. The file seemed identical to the one you would get from a standard installation, and my diff software also told me that the files were identical. However, I noticed that the file sizes were slightly different, and the difference was also clearly visible if opened in notepad. When copying in the unmodified file from the alloy site (or from \EPiServer\CMS\6.1.379.0\Application\lang), it worked.

I also had the similar problem; in several of my tinyMCE xml lang files there was a string like this:

<clipboard_msg>Copy/Cut/Paste is not available in Mozilla and Firefox.
Do you want more information about this issue?</clipboard_msg>

When I removed line breack and changed it to this:

<clipboard_msg>Copy/Cut/Paste is not available in Mozilla and Firefox.\nDo you want more information about this issue?</clipboard_msg>

the problem was fixed

Thanks for the input, Roman. 

My problem was fixed by replacing the lang files with originals like Per Magne suggested.
