The first, most important thing to realize is that progress takes time. What the ….. ? Oh, I forgot the world writes in sentences with punctuation and thinks in prose, not line by line poetry. You may wonder, ‘What is she talking about now? She’s started her blog complaining about things that only she can see.’
Alright then. The problem I have is a formatting issue that the WYSIWYG interface (new WordPress editor) assumes every time I hit return at the end of the line of text
Space – return
See that? Right there. I did not mean to start a new paragraph and yet here we are. All the way down here instead of up there a single space below the word text. This makes writing dialogue easy. Saving myself obvious keystrokes that I would rather have the option of choosing not to skip. (Clear as mud, right?)
Say if I wanted to write in a poetic line by line style
I would be essentially creating a whole bunch of code to create a format that I
What the hell is wrong with me having the ability to use the return key multiple times? I really am a control freak when I write. My solution for the last time the WordPress interface was updated, ‘to help me’ was to switch to the HTML editor setting so that I could write in a stream of consciousness style without the visual distraction of forced double line breaks.
Don’t get me wrong, I really don’t mind having to write without having to add a bunch of keystrokes. Ok, that was a lie. I like typing. I like formatting. I’m not sure I like this new WordPress editor, but I’m going to try it at least one more time before I switch to the HTML setting or go back to writing in TextEdit, select all, copy, then paste.
I’m not morally opposed to updates. I just like it when word editors work, the same way I’m used to, without some gung ho design team deciding to reinvent the wheel by creating a new version of an editor I didn’t really have problems with in the first place.
What a surprise! I’m complaining, again. I’m going to post this then go make lunch. A novel idea that I have discovered recently that can only help me stay healthy.
