lj-cut button in rich text
Short, concise description of the idea
Either make lj-cut button not selectable when no text is highlighted, or put an error on it in that case.
Full description of the idea
Currently, if someone clicks lj-cut without first highlighting text, the prompts proceed as though it were successful, but no link is inserted. This confuses people who don't realize until posting that the link was not inserted, and can't figure out why.
Maybe the lj-cut button, like the link button, could be unselectable when no text is highlighted. Another option would be to throw an error message in this case, explaining that text must be highlighted. (As a support volunteer, I like this idea better, since it would mean no "why can't I click the button" questions. However, the other way is less messy.)
- Less confusion
- Less frustration
- Less huge pics and b0rked meme results that were supposed to be cut

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
- for the first idea, just do whatever you did to the link button. Otherwise, I dunno.
