Many of you read my post on Sunday night about my frustration with Blogger and writing a simple post. It was a popular post to say the least. Proof positive by the number of comments and separate emails I received. Seems like we all have a little stress with one feature or another.
Well, I made the change to the new post editor. It has more features and just takes a little bit to get use to, but it is a welcome breath of fresh air...especially the picture section and the spaces between paragraphs actually show up!! Woo Hoo.
Many of you asked how to change your post editor to Blogger's new version, so here are the steps...CLICK ON PICTURES TO ENLARGE.
Go to your dashboard and click "Settings" (circled in black).
The first section under settings is "BASIC" (which should be the first page to show up)
Scroll down to the bottom of that page to "Select Post Editor". Pick the updated version and click "SAVE"
This is what the new one looks like.
Here is what the "ADD IMAGES" screen looks like.
Add all your images onto the loader and then you can pick the one you want to load by clicking on it...it will be high lighted in blue.
The best part is the picture will load where ever you want it. Just put the cursor any where in the post and where ever the cursor is...that's where the picture will show up. If you load them in order one after another before you write any thing, the first one you put in...is the first one in your post. FINALLY, I hated loading in the pictures backwards.
To do things with the picture...click on it to high light it and you can delete it, move it left/right/center, size it small/med/large etc.
The Preview button is nice too. A separate page will pop up and show you what the post will look like in the actual context of your blog.
I am new to this editor, so if any one out there has any more input or helpful hints...please leave them in the comment section.
