Bitdefender on Big Sur and New MacBook Pro with M1

Got a new MacBook Pro with the M1 chip and was surprised to find that Bitdefender worked quite well. In fact, even though it's running in emulation under Rosetta 2, it's snappy (more so on my older Intel Macs) and it immediately detected and removed test malware. There was a warning of a blocked extension during install (likely a Big Sur issue) but didn't seem to cause any problems so far. Hope to see an update down the road so it runs natively.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
