Support General Bug with WYSIWYG on non gutenberg post

    If when a page loads a user starts on the text tab of a WYSIWYG (either the post content or a meta box) and clicks the visual tab - although the UI looks to have changed - the content still reads from the text tab.

    This means clicking the text tab does nothing as it thinks it is on that tab already.
    Entering any content in the visual tab does not save - as the saved value is taken from the text tab.

    Clicking the visual tab a second time loads the tab properly.

    This is a classic editor post (regards less of if the post type supports the body), Metabox 5.4, WordPress 5.7 and a clean install with no other plugins.

    Not the normal post content WYSIWYG work fine on classic editor, but if you add a meta box WYSIWYG to the post type the normal one then breaks.

    I am guessing you have a hook that requires some JS that is only in the Gutenberg view. There are no console errors.

    Hi,

    This is turning in to a major problem for us and our clients.

    Metabox code breaks the transition from 'Text' to 'Visual'. This has been the case for months.

    Can we please get a reply or an indication that this is being looked at?
