I saw somewhere that Help is run by a different company than CW. I wish we had the text editing capabilities on CW that we do on Help posts.
I often make typos or don't initially word things well, but I don't realize until I read them back. Plus I get really wordy, so I need the ability to edit out the unimportant stuff. I'm handicapped with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which causes brain fog that makes it hard for me to communicate as clearly as I used to before I got sick.
Usually I compensate by typing stuff in Word Pad first, make corrections, then copy and paste. Unfortunately, most places where you can write text in CW, don't allow copying, cutting or pasting. When you're typing on CW, often you can't to see what you're typing beyond a certain point, so you don't know what it looks like. This is very frustrating to me.
I noticed yesterday, CW evidently reduced the number of characters allowed for photo captions. This was not announced, so some of the text that was already there, which must have exceeded the "new" limit, just disappeared.
Part of my "About Me" had disappeared today. I've always written it in Word Pad, then copied & pasted into my profile since it's kind of long. I edited it to have fewer characters, but when I pasted it into my profile, it lost the paragraph spacing. The only way to get the spacing back seems to be to type the whole thing directly into "About Me", but then I can't see what I'm typing beyond the first few lines. I re-typed it four times, and still have a typo in it, but I decided it was better to leave it that way, than have the formatting messed up.
Pls consider giving us text editing capabilities and/or at least changing preview capabilities in CW, because it sure would help ppl like me.
