When clicking an image to resize with handles in CKeditor and Chrome browser, the handles do not appear and the whole image is selected as one big blue block. I have tested it to work under IE9, FF5-FF10.

Wysiwyg Module
CKEditor library
Chrome 17.0.963.56

It is highly likely this problem is to do with the CKEditor library as it is the one providing this functionality. Sorry I wasn't more clear about this in IRC.

Changing this to the Wysiwyg module as you use that and maybe someone there can add more light into this.

May also be Chrome? I see that the handles are not working with the Image Resize Filter as well now. I know this used to work with Image Resize Filter on Chrome in the past.

Webkit has had, and still has, major problems with selections. It doesn't work on http://ckeditor.com/demo either, so it's not a problem in Wysiwyg.

Some editors have found workarounds in certain situations, but it might not always be possible to do that. If editors can't be certain of what's selected in the browser, they can't know when to display resize handles either.

There are several existing bug reports for this on various trackers related to Webkit, Chrome and other browsers so I don't think we need one more here where we can't do anything about it.

Fyi, TinyMCE recently launched a workaround for this in Webkit. See here - http://www.tinymce.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=29222

Also, this has been filed upstream (Jan 2007), please comment here, myself and Nate Haug (quicksketch) have already done so --> https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12250

FWIW, this is fixed in the WYSIWYG_CKEditor module (also via quicksketch).
