    The Tiny MCE Advanced Plugin does do a pretty good job. However, there are several issues that would take it to the next level.
    - Allowing the caption to be dragged with an image
    - Fixing the paragraph spacing issues between editor and live views
    - Fixing the indent button

    I've found work arounds for the last 2, but not the image caption drag. Has anyone else?

    After about a month of monkeying around with the editor, I finally just had to turn it off. Now I have to write all of my posts in a separate editor first. Then I just copy and paste the actual HTML from that editor when I am done. Seems a little dumb but the editor I had in WP 2.7.1 and using a Firefox browser just kept screwing things up. I would work and work, finally get it right, then go make a change and save it, and it would screw up the alignment of everything. It was very frustrating. Maybe WP will fix this in the newest version. Hope so.

    "I can't utilize the editor since it doesn't support multimedia and scripting. I'd recommend the ability to do both."

    I agree with this reply.I too need multimedia and scripting supporting one. If anyone knows kindly post it here.

  6. I'm quite used to WYSIWYG.I think there should be ways of using it on my smartphone as well.

    This would be welcome. At the very least, can we have the equivalent of maintainscrollpositiononpostback.

    It drives me nuts when, every time I make an edit, the cursor jumps back to the top.

    It's not as simple as you think.

    If you disable it (or switch it off, call it whatever you want), once it's enabled and saved, it will filter everything out again.

    TinyMCE is probably the best and most advanced WYSIWYG editors out there, I've already looked for others.

    In my opinion, the best solution at this point is to create an interface that allows users to customize TinyMCE's configuration, TinyMCE is highly configurable (in case you didn't know).

    Also, consider to use the jQuery version of TinyMCE, just started to use it and it's obviously lighter (though, it doesn't support combination of the files / GZIP, yet). There's no need for TinyMCE to load a selector engine AND jQuery (it's the same selector engine after all), it just make it a lot heavier and using the jQuery version should make it play a little nicer.

    The reason I said "consider" is because the WP team may want to let it mature a little, fix up some bugs, etc.

    I know it won't fix all the issues you guys have with it (I myself a Mac user too) but it will definitely improve it a lot.

    A lot of work was put into TinyMCE as well as WP (custom skin, for example).

    Just because it's not good enough, doesn't mean it's not good.

    Do you switch car because the left-front tire is flat? :-)

    Several plugins to use various rich editors already exist. It might be possible to make them more easy to plug in or something, but the TinyMCE editor has made great improvements since WordPress started using it. It makes no sense to switch to another one right now.
