One of my clients is having major "re-draw" issues with WYGWAM while using Chrome (Mac):


The only way to temporarily lose the lines is to keep resizing the text area. Does anyone know a more permanent solution or reason why it's happening?

We're using EE 2.5.2 and WYGWAM 2.6.3.

EDIT: Just wanted to note that this is fixed in the latest version of Chrome (24.0.1312.52).

This is a Chrome/Iframe/contentEditable bug that usually crops up when you set Wygwam to use your own CSS file.

You should be able to fix it by adding a line-height to your CSS.

    Thanks Brandon. For what it's worth, I'm not using my own CSS with Wygwam.
