I just checked my settings page and got to see a new feature blogger has added to its kitty.
Blogger has launched it’s new blogger post editor. So this post will give you a review of the brand new feature.
Add the New Post Editor Feature
Here is a preview of the new post editor:
The New Post Editor in Blogger
This editor sure looks cool eh? But that is nothing compared to the features it has in store for us. It is one of the major updates blogger has done to its blogging platform.
A lot of new editing features are available now. Here are some of the ones i would like you to see:
1. Firstly there is the Undo/Redo button which was much needed as i and many others used to use the button available in the browser to do the same function.
2. Strike through Button : Easily strike off text without dealing with any Html or coding.
4. New Color Pickers:
In the previous post editor there was only one color picker which could be used for the font color.
But there is a new color picker to choose the Highlighter color to color to highlight text.
The color pickers have a better look and organization and also have a faster loading time.
Here is a preview:
Font Color – Color Picker
Highlighter – Color Picker
These color pickers are easier to use and it is very easy to choose from them.
5. Add a Link :
New Way to add a link on Blogger
The look has changed and so is the way you can add links in blogger. Now you don’t have to select the text to add a link. Just click on Link Button and enter the text and link. Super easy!!. And in addition you can also link to an email address.
6. Add a Picture :
New Dialog Box to add a new picture
Now this is the one of the best feature. No image popups, add image in the same post editor. All the uploaded images will all be displayed in the same box and you can add these images anywhere in the post, i.e where your cursor is placed and not at the top of the post.
Placement and Adjustment of the size of Image
And after you upload your photo you can easily adjust the size of the image (small,medium,large) along with it’s placement (Left,Right and Center) and you can also remove it with a click of a button. Isn’t that awesome
What Features it lacked
Though this update was feature rich, it lacked some features. Here are some of the features which according to me would be great addition to blogger.
1. Image Bulk Upload
The image edit is good but i would like to have an uploader like that in facebook where you can easily add images in bulk without any pain. I hate to select and upload each and every image.
2. Underline Button :
I would like to have fast underlining without any coding.
3. Tables Editor
A tables editor to make adding tables to blogger easier by ability to select the number of columns and rows and also if possible the template just like that in microsoft office.
This post editor feature is still optional and you can always revert back to the original one.
These are just a small number of features that i liked mentioning.
Have you noticed anything else ? What is your opinion about the new post editor? Have suggestions?
