I have spoken to the Happiness Engineers, and while I didn’t get the answers I wanted, I got some that might work. If I can’t be happy, hopefully I can be less sad about this new editor.
I asked the Happiness Engineers if there was a way to indent paragraph blocks. I was told that “indenting is a print thing, not an online thing.” I suggested that it makes certain blocks of text easier to read. I was told “it used to.” However, it seems you can add an HTML block, and in that block, you can change the style. Now I just have to get the font to match and work on some color and format options.
Now let’s see if I can spiff it up a bit. It seems I have to do everything myself. John Holten might not mind, but it’s a pain. By the way, the easy way to remember the order in which the margins get set is TRouBLe or, for us Star Trek fans, TRiBbLE, i.e. Top, Right, Bottom, Left.
Here, I have the color like, the font is bold and italic and indented. I guess I don’t mind this exercise for individual blocks. I will likely store the HTML in a folder. I thought I would be able to use a reusable block for this, but I’m not sure they work the way I think. I need more of a template block.”
Now I am going to explore the new gallery options. I’m told that the Masonry or Offset CoBlocks Gallery blocks might give me the option to have captions in a gallery the way I want them to be. I was also told that what I want (captions that don’t block the image) might be considered unreasonable and that I should write shorter captions.
OK, that really doesn’t look like anything I want to show my readers.
Of course, for now, you can still insert a Classic block and within that block, you can add a Gallery that looks and feels like the Classic Gallery. This might be the way I go.
Looking out over the honeysuckle.
It’s fun to watch the squirrels run through the maze of our neighbor’s trees,
“I think it’s a little foggy, Maddie.” We stood for a few minutes on the steps before heading out.
“I don’t know what all the fuss is about. Aerial views? Pffft, that’s easy.”
It’s been a crazy week. We had mornings in the teens and mornings in 60s.
“What?” Maddie is lounging on her Scooby Doo blanket (which is currently on our bed).
If you read this far, I’ll give you 100 bonus points for your patience.
