Insert code boxes appear to be eating closing braces

It appears that one of the insert code options is removing trailing } in code.

 

One example in https://communities.sas.com/t5/Base-SAS-Programming/Shifting-Values-Left-Across-Variables/m-p/250809

in the posts by DanZ and RW9.

So we have yet another reason not to use Internet Explorer. But at work I don't have a choice.

Using Firefox from home the posts appear correct. So this seems to be basically an Internet Explorer issue.

Ah, your using IE, think we have isolated the problem.  You do have a choice, just go on strike until they provide working tools Smiley Surprised)

This appears to be the same problem that I reported two weeks ago in

https://communities.sas.com/t5/Community-Matters/quot-Insert-SAS-Code-quot-eating-program-statements...

On IE, the code gets truncated.  It appears that the opening brace (??) might be a trigger for the problem.

 

I know that people are trying to be helpful, but please refrain from responding "just use Chrome." IE accounts for about 50% of the browser market.  This is a serious problem that needs to be addressed by the @CommAdmin.
