Is modifying the Visual Editor different in 2.1.3 Beta 2?

I'm having a really difficult time making any changes to the config files to show up in the Visual Editor. As far as I can tell, I'm doing everything correctly: http://docs.composite.net/C1/Console/CustomizingVisualEditor.aspx

Should be the same.

For example, what did you try to do?

I'm trying to add new elements to the Style drop down box... but nothing I do seems to work. I have made this work on a previous version of composite, so I was trying to figure out where I'm going wrong.

Did you try to clear browser cache?

I just tried to add new element to the Style Drop Down and it works.

 <format id="h4" label="Heading H4" image="" notes="Small heading" block="h4">
        <select />
  </format>

Could you provide with your common.xml and what exactly doesn't work.

Okay... i just added that and it showed up fine. I restarted and cleared the browser cache before... it's strange that it showed up now that I'm doing this from a different computer. Probably just me.

However, I DID find the problem that I was having:

      <format id="blockquote" label="Quotation" image="" notes="To insert a quotation" inline="blockquote">
        <select />
      </format>
      <format id="aside" label="Article Aside" image="" notes="An aside to an article" inline="aside">
        <select />
      </format>

I was mistakenly using "SELECT" for inline elements. I just noticed that they can ONLY be buttons... which makes sense.
Argh! I was going in circles thinking I was crazy.
Hopefully it's all resolved now.
