From v2.3.2 aligments bolt and italics for texts in tinymce dont work.

fix for alignments:
method-1: --- inside Page.php -- copy following code to getCMSFields() function to.

HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->setOption('valid_elements', '+a[id|rel|rev|dir|tabindex|accesskey|type|name|href|target|title|class|style],-strong/-b[class],-em/-i[class],-strike[class],-u[class],#p[id|dir|class|align|style],-ol[class|style],-ul[class|style],-li[class|style],br,img[id|dir|longdesc|usemap|class|src|border|alt=|title|width|height|align|style],-sub[class],-sup[class],-blockquote[dir|class],-table[border=0|cellspacing|cellpadding|width|height|class|align|summary|dir|id|style],-tr[id|dir|class|rowspan|width|height|align|valign|bgcolor|background|bordercolor|style],tbody[id|class|style],thead[id|class|style],tfoot[id|class|style],-td[id|dir|class|colspan|rowspan|width|height|align|valign|scope|style],-th[id|dir|class|colspan|rowspan|width|height|align|valign|scope|style],caption[id|dir|class],-div[id|dir|class|align|style],-span[class|align|style],-pre[class|align],address[class|align],-h1[id|dir|class|align|style],-h2[id|dir|class|align|style],-h3[id|dir|class|align|style],-h4[id|dir|class|align|style],-h5[id|dir|class|align|style],-h6[id|dir|class|align|style],hr[class],dd[id|class|title|dir],dl[id|class|title|dir]

Method-2: --- inside cms/code/LeftAndMain.php, line 175, replace line with:

-replace SquareBracket with actual brackets, as it wont show here correctly.

'valid_elements' => "*SquareBracketOpen*SquareBracketClose",

If you encounter bug regarding not working Bold, Italic and Underline buttons, as i did:
add this inside your themes/YourThemeName/css/typography.css

.typography b,strong{font-weight:bold;}
.typography i,em{font-style:italic;}
.typography u{text-decoration:underline;}

Nice work. I gave it a try though and found it did not fix my issue with underline. The editor puts in the following: < u _moz_dirty="" > underline my text < / u >. (if my code gets stripped out on save, it is a "u" with a class of "_moz_dirty")

I haven't seen "_moz_dirty" before. That's interesting. It seems though that the whole thing is stripped out on save, because when you view on the front end, you only get paragraph tags. I'll do some more digging and see if I can come up with anything.
