    I'm among those who isn't at all happy with the updated text editor.

    With my last 2 blogposts I knocked the dust off of Windows Live Writer, wrote the posts, loaded the posts as drafts straight to my WordPress blog, did some minor tweaks and published.

    I tried Advanced Image Styles plugin but it's not working on my site. Who knows why? I don't so I uninstalled it and went with Windows Live Writer.

    A Google search shows that there are several other applications that can be used as alternatives to WP's test editor.

  2. I'm among those who isn't at all happy with the updated text editor.

    Anything specific that we can recommend or assist you with?

    I'm just offering feedback and sharing a solution that I've found.

    Across various threads people have discussed challenges with the new text editor and it's been made quite clear that the features we want aren't coming back, and Advanced Image Styles plugin hasn't been a 100% replacement. I just wanted to share that Windows Live Writer is a solution, as are some other text editors that allow for publishing straight to a WordPress blog.

    In the meantime, could we ask you to please not post across multiple topics? Just posting this one is enough, thanks.

    I've only posted about Windows Live Writer in this thread, ma'am.

    I did comment about Advanced Image Styles in the spirit of contributing to other conversations about this same ongoing problem. Any way ...

    Have a great weekend.
