We have to Textformats for the WYSIWYG editor:

  • full html (intended for admins with html knowledge)
  • simple html (for the non-tech editors)

Both can edit the node

However, if the admin save a field with full html, it is automatically blocked for the normal editors, as they have no permission for the "full html":

enter image description here

Is there a way, that the field is simply using "simple html" as fallback? It would be no problem if the markup got sanitised more then it would be with full html...

I found this old post from 10 years ago - maybe something has changed in the meantime?

Alright, so I found the well maintained module allowed_formats.

This actually solves my problem, as I can limit the format to simple html for those few fields, that the normal editors have access too.
