WordPress has introduced yet another version of the Block Editor. I have not been a fan of the concept from the beginning, but I thought I’d see it through and continue with the new version rather than seek shortcuts to get back to my comfort zone.
When I first started using word processors, sometime in the mid-eighties, the ability to justify text was what impressed me most. Being able to alter text, cut and past chunks of words were all very useful, but I liked justification. On those machines it was all about inserting commands in text and hoping for the best. Along came Apple and the ability to easily highlight text and do many things with it, including justifying it.
I promise to keep struggling with the new block editor, but I do wish the powers that be at WordPress would justify their decision to scrap this favourite tool of mine. So just to annoy them, I’m going to go to the trouble of using the code editor to justify portions of this blog post. I am nothing if not a rebel.
